Data from the Clearinghouse can be shared among States and Tribes to assist them in developing or updating numeric water quality standards and guidance values for the protection of aquatic life, human health, and wildlife. In particular, States and Tribes can use the information in the Clearinghouse to help derive criteria for pollutants without specific numeric criteria published in the GLI (40 CFR Part 132). Data in the Clearinghouse can be viewed online or downloaded in spreadsheet format. The Clearinghouse includes PDF versions of ‘‘fact sheets,’’ which provide methodology information on how State agencies and USEPA derive criteria and guidance values. The Clearinghouse also includes links to GLI-related documents, including Federal Register notices and technical support documents, as well as formulas that allow users to calculate criteria according to GLI methodologies. To access the Clearinghouse go to http://www.epa.gov/gliclearinghouse. Dated: April 24, 2007. Walter W. Kovalick, Jr., Acting Deputy Regional Administrator, Region 5. [FR Doc.
