Sunshine Act Meeting, 57032-57033 [07-4967]

Download as PDF yshivers on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES 57032 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 193 / Friday, October 5, 2007 / Notices promulgated ‘‘Standards for the Use or Disposal of Sewage Sludge’’ (40 CFR part 503) and made revisions to the NPDES regulations to include the permitting of facilities/operations that generate, treat, and/or use/dispose of sewage sludge. The 503 regulations were amended on August 4, 1999 (64 FR 42551). The States of South Dakota and Utah currently are the only States in Region 8 that have been authorized to administer the biosolids (sludge) program. The State of Colorado has not been authorized permitting authority for Federal facilities. In 2002 EPA issued general permits for facilities or operations that generate, treat, and/or use/dispose of sewage sludge by means of land application, landfill, and surface disposal in the States of CO, MT, ND, and WY and in Indian country in the States of CO, MT, ND, SD, WY and UT (except for the Goshute Indian Reservation and the Navajo Indian Reservation). Those general permits expire on August 16, 2007. Proposed reissuance of the general permits was published in the Federal Register on July 3, 2007 (72 FR 36453). The public comment period closed on August 2, 2007. A summary of each comment received and Region 8’s response to the comments are given in a separate document, ‘‘Response to Comments on Reissuance of Region 8 Biosolids General Permits in 2007.’’ To obtain a copy of the Response to Comments See FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: above. None of the comments resulted in a change to the general permits as proposed. Accordingly, the permits are being issued without any change from the public notice draft. The renewal permits are very similar to the previous permits. The administrative burden for most of the regulated sources is expected to be less under the general permits than with individual permits, and it will be much quicker to obtain permit coverage with general permits than with individual permits. The substantive permit requirements would be essentially the same with an individual permit or under the general permit. Facilities or operations that incinerate sewage sludge are not eligible for coverage under these general permits and must apply for an individual permit. Wastewater lagoon systems that are not using/disposing of sewage sludge do not need to apply for permit coverage unless notified by the permit issuing authority. The deadlines for applying for coverage under the general permits are given in the permits and the Fact Sheet. Facilities/operations that had coverage under the previous general permit and have submitted a VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:33 Oct 04, 2007 Jkt 214001 timely request for coverage under this renewal permit are covered automatically under the permits unless the permit issuing authority requires the submittal of a new notice of intent (NOI). Other Legal Requirements Section 401(a)(1) Certification: Since these permits do not involve discharges to waters of the United States, certification under § 401(a)(1) of the Clean Water Act is not necessary for the issuance of these permits and certification will not be requested. Economic Impact (Executive Order 12866): EPA has determined that the issuance of this general permit is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under the terms of Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735 (October 4, 1993)) and is therefore not subject to formal OMB review prior to proposal. Paperwork Reduction Act: EPA has reviewed the requirements imposed on regulated facilities in these proposed general permits under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, 44 U.S.C. 501, et seq. The information collection requirements of these permits have already been approved by the Office of Management and Budget in submissions made for the NPDES permit program under the provisions of the Clean Water Act. Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), 5 U.S.C 601, et seq., as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA): The RFA requires that EPA prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis for rules subject to the requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553(b) that have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. The permit proposed today, however, is not a ‘‘rule’’ subject to the requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553(b) and is therefore not subject to the RFA. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act: Section 201 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA), Public Law 104–4, generally requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their ‘‘regulatory actions’’ defined to be the same as ‘‘rules’’ subject to the RFA) on tribal, state, local governments and the private sector. The permit proposed today, however, is not a ‘‘rule’’ subject to the RFA and is therefore not subject to the requirements of the UMRA. Appeal of Permit: Any interested person may appeal the general permits in the Federal Court of Appeals in accordance with Section 509(b)(1) of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1369(b)(1)). This appeal must be filed within 120 days of the effective date of the permit. Persons affected by a general NPDES permit may not challenge the conditions PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of the permit as a right of further EPA proceedings (see 40 CFR 124.19). Instead, they may either challenge the permit in court or apply for an individual permit and then request a formal hearing on the issuance or denial on an individual permit. Authority: Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq. Dated: September 18, 2007. Stephen S. Tuber, Assistant Regional Administrator, Office of Partnerships and Regulatory Assistance. [FR Doc.
