ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Art Hofmeister, Air Permits Section, EPA Region 4, at (404) 562–9115 or hofmeister.art@epa.gov. AGENCY: The Act affords EPA a 45-day period to review and, as appropriate, to object to operating permits proposed by state permitting authorities under title V of the Act, 42 U.S.C. 7661–7661f. Section 505(b)(2) of the Act and 40 CFR 70.8(d) authorize any person to petition the EPA Administrator to object to a title V operating permit within 60 days after the expiration of EPA’s 45-day review period if EPA has not objected on its own initiative. Petitions must be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the comment period or the grounds for the issues arose after this period. Ms. Strong submitted a petition on May 15, 2003, requesting that EPA object to a state title V operating permit issued by EPD to Georgia-Pacific. The Petitioner maintains that the GeorgiaPacific permit is inconsistent with the Act because: (1) It fails to ensure the source’s compliance with Georgia’s nuisance rule; (2) it allows the source to emit illegal levels of formaldehyde emissions; and (3) the public notice and comment procedures associated with its issuance were flawed. On September 21, 2006, the Administrator issued an Order denying this petition. The Order explains the reasons behind EPA’s conclusion that the Petitioner has failed to demonstrate that the Georgia-Pacific permit is not in compliance with the requirements of the Act on the grounds raised. SUMMARY: Pursuant to Clean Air Act Section 505(b)(2) and 40 CFR 70.8(d), the EPA Administrator signed an Order, dated September 21, 2006, denying a petition to object to a state operating permit issued by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) to Continental Carbon Company located in Phenix City, Russell County, Alabama. This Order constitutes final action on the petition submitted by Action Marine, Inc.; John Tharpe; the City of Columbus, Georgia; Owen and Mabel Ditchfield; Donald and Carolyn Lang; Alma Chapman; and Lois Baggett (Petitioners). Pursuant to section 505(b)(2) of the Clean Air Act (the Act) any person may seek judicial review of the Order in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit within 60 days of this notice under section 307 of the Act.

Petitioners submitted a petition on December 24, 2003, requesting that EPA object to a state title V operating permit issued by ADEM to Continental Carbon. Petitioners maintain that the Continental Carbon permit is inconsistent with the Act because: (1) The public participation procedures associated with its issuance failed to utilize certain local newspapers; and (2) materials related to changes made to the draft permit following public comment were not made readily available to the public.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces EPA’s order terminating all residential uses of the acid copper chromate (ACC) registration held by OSMOSE, Inc. The affected registration is EPA Reg. No. 3008-60. OSMOSE voluntarily requested the use termination, pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended. OSMOSE requested that it not be provided with any existing stocks provisions for the product. The Agency announced receipt of this request in a July 18, 2006 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Request (71 FR 40717) (FRL-8080-5). In the July 18, 2006 Notice, EPA stated that it would accept the request and issue an order implementing the use termination, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 30–day comment period that would merit its further review of the request, or unless the registrant withdrew the request within this period, which closed August 17, 2006. The Agency received one comment on the notice which was carefully considered by the Agency; it was determined that the request did not merit further review. Further, the registrant did not withdraw its request. Accordingly, on October 17, 2006 EPA approved the request. EPA hereby issues through this notice an order implementing the approved use terminations. Any distribution, sale, or use of the ACC product subject to this cancellation order is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order. DATES: The cancellations are effective December 14, 2006.

[Petition IV-2001-6; FRL-8255-5]


Clean Air Act Operating Permit Program; Petition for Objection to 
State Operating Permit for King Finishing; Dover (Screven County), GA

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of final order denying petition to object to a state 
operating permit in response to remand.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On September 21, 2006, the Administrator issued an Order 
Granting Remanded Issue on Petition to Object (Order) regarding a state 
operating permit issued to King Finishing located in Dover, Screven 
County, Georgia, pursuant to title V of the Clean Air Act (the Act), 42 
U.S.C. 7661-7661f. On October 9, 2001, the Georgia Center for Law in 
the Public Interest filed a petition, on behalf of the Sierra Club 
(Petitioner), seeking EPA's objection to the title V operating permit 
issued to King Finishing by the Georgia Environmental Protection 
Division (EPD). The Administrator denied the

[[Page 75246]]

petition in an Order dated October 9, 2002. Pursuant to Section 502(b) 
of the Act, Petitioner appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 
Eleventh Circuit (the Court). On January 20, 2006, the Court partially 
granted Petitioner's request for review, vacated the October 9, 2002, 
Order with respect to the mailing list issue, and remanded the issue to 
EPA for further consideration. Upon further consideration, EPA granted 
Petitioner's request to object to the King Finishing permit for EPD's 
failure to use a mailing list.

ADDRESSES: Copies of the Order, the petition, and all pertinent 
information relating thereto are on file at the following location: EPA 
Region 4, Air, Pesticides and Toxics Management Division, 61 Forsyth 
Street SW., Atlanta, Georgia 30303-8960. The final Order is also 
available electronically at the following address: http://www.epa.gov/

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Art Hofmeister, Air Permits Section, 
EPA Region 4, at (404) 562-9115 or hofmeister.art@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Other inconsistencies (with the Act) alleged 
by the Petitioner were: that the public participation process and the 
public notice of the draft permit were inadequate; that the permit 
improperly limits enforcement authority and the use of credible 
evidence; and that the permit contains both inadequate monitoring and 
reporting requirements. EPA's October 9, 2002, denial of the above 
issues was unaffected by the Court's decision.

    Dated: December 5, 2006.
