Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are Business and State, Local, or Tribal Governments Title: Standardized Permit for RCRA Hazardous Waste Facilities ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1935.03, OMB Control No. 2050–0182. ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on August 31, 2008. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: Under the authority of sections 3004, 3005, 3008 and 3010 of E:\FR\FM\27MRN1.SGM 27MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 60 / Thursday, March 27, 2008 / Notices pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is finalizing revisions to the RCRA hazardous waste permitting program to allow a ‘‘standardized permit.’’ The standardized permit is available to facilities that generate hazardous waste and routinely manage the waste on-site in non-thermal units such as tanks, containers, and containment buildings. This ICR presents a comprehensive description of the information collection requirements for owners and operators submitting applications for a standardized permit or a standardized permit modification. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 2 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency.

ACTION: SUMMARY: This notice announces the availability of, and opportunity to comment on, an EPA decision reconsidering its decision to approve the omission of microcystin toxins listings for three segments of the Klamath River in California and identifying microcystin toxins as an additional cause of impairment for a segment of the Klamath River pursuant to Clean Water Act section 303(d)(2). Section 303(d)(2) requires that states submit and EPA approve or disapprove lists of waters for which existing technology-based pollution controls are not stringent enough to attain or maintain state water quality standards and for which total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) must be prepared. DATES: Comments must be submitted to EPA on or before April 28, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Comments should be sent in writing to Peter Kozelka, TMDL Coordinator, Water Division (WTR–2), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94105, telephone (415) 972–3448, facsimile (415) 947–3537, email kozelka.peter@epa.gov. Materials relating to EPA’s reconsideration and determination can be viewed at EPA Region 9’s Web site: http:// www.epa.gov/region9/water/tmdl/ 303d.html or obtained by writing or calling Mr. Kozelka at the above address. Documentation relating to EPA’s action is available for public inspection at the above address. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act (CWA) requires that each state identify those waters for which existing technologybased pollution controls are not PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16301 stringent enough to attain or maintain state water quality standards. For those waters, states are required to establish TMDLs according to a priority ranking. EPA’s Water Quality Planning and Management regulations include requirements related to the implementation of section 303(d) of the CWA (40 CFR 130.7). The regulations require states to identify water quality limited waters still requiring TMDLs every two years. The lists of waters still needing TMDLs must also include priority rankings and must identify the waters targeted for TMDL development during the next two years (40 CFR 130.7). Consistent with EPA’s regulations, California submitted to EPA its listing decisions under section 303(d)(2) on November 24, 2006. On November 30, 2006, EPA approved California’s list of impaired waters, except Walnut Creek Toxicity. On March 8, 2007, EPA disapproved California’s decisions not to list 36 water quality limited segments and associated pollutants, and additional pollutants for 34 water bodies already listed by the State. On June 28, 2007, EPA issued its final decision regarding the additional waters and pollutants for inclusion on the 2006 section 303(d) list. Among other things, the June 28 decision approved the 2006 section 303(d) list without adding any Klamath River segments as impaired due to microcystin toxins. California’s 2006 section 303(d) List already identifies each segment of the Klamath River within California as impaired due to Nutrients, Organic Enrichment/Low Dissolved Oxygen, and Temperature. EPA has reconsidered its prior approval of the omission of microcystin toxins listings for three Klamath River segments, and on March 13, 2008, determined to add a listing for microcystin toxins for one of these three segments, ‘‘Klamath River HU, Middle HA, Oregon to Iron Gate’’. EPA’s reconsideration of its decisions related to microcystin toxins and the Klamath River, and its determination to add a listing for microcystin toxins for one of the river’s segments, do not affect EPA’s determinations regarding any other portion of California’s section 303(d) List. Neither EPA’s approval of the State’s listings for the Klamath River listings, nor EPA’s determination to add the listing for microcystin toxins, extends to any water bodies located within Indian country, as defined in 18 U.S.C. 1151. EPA is providing the public the opportunity to review EPA’s reconsideration of the listings for the Klamath River related to microcystin toxins, and its determination to add a E:\FR\FM\27MRN1.SGM 27MRN1
