General Information This notice announces one meeting of the FACDQ. The purpose of this meeting is to finalize the report document, ‘‘Report of the Federal Advisory Committee on Detection and Quantitation Approaches and Uses in Clean Water Act Programs.’’ The draft meeting agenda will be available on the Internet at http://www.epa.gov/ waterscience/methods/det. EPA acknowledges short advance notice of this meeting for the following reasons. The Committee members’ letters of appointment expire at the end of December 2007, and thus, EPA needs to conclude deliberations and produce a final report within that timeframe. The goal of the Committee’s last meeting, on December 5 and 6, 2007, was to finalize the Committee’s report to the EPA Administrator, and the Committee agreed to most of the decisions needed for closure on the final report. Only a few additional discussions and decisions remain; those will be the focus of the December 21st meeting. In large part, the December 21 meeting is a minor add-on to the earlier December meeting. To accommodate the Committee members’ calendars and the short number of weeks remaining in 2007, EPA is moving forward quickly to convene the final meeting and today provides as much notice as was possible. Information on Services for Individuals With Disabilities For information on access or services for individuals with disabilities, please contact Meghan Hessenauer at (202) 566–1040 or e-mail: hessenauer.meghan@epa.gov to request accommodation of a disability, at least ten days prior to the meeting, to give EPA as much time as possible to process your request.
