Public Water System Supervision Program Revision for the State of Arkansas, 20923-20924 [E8-8331]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 75 / Thursday, April 17, 2008 / Notices sroberts on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES Volume (IHPV) Challenge Program in the near future. The Agency is considering applying the general approach used in the HPV Challenge Program (sponsorship commitments, development of test plans, public review step, completion of data package, and submission to EPA) as well as the inorganics guidance developed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) for use in its HPV Program. Additional information on OECD’s guidance on inorganics can be found at: http://www.oecd.org/ document/7/0,3343, en_2649_34379_1947463 _1_1_1_1,00.html. It is anticipated that an IHPV Challenge Program, if started in 2008, could be completed by approximately 2011–2012. The 2011 IUR reporting cycle will include exposure/use data for inorganic HPV chemicals which would allow for EPA to consider both hazard and exposure elements and develop RBPs for these chemicals. An assessment approach similar to that for organic MPV chemicals could be applied to inorganic medium production volume (IMPV) chemicals at a later date. The second new initiative concerns an effort to potentially ‘‘reset’’ the TSCA Inventory. The original TSCA Inventory was compiled in 1979 consisting of 62,000 chemicals. Since then approximately 21,000 new chemicals have been added to the TSCA Inventory. Under TSCA section 8(b), EPA is required to ‘‘compile, keep current, and publish a list of each chemical substance which is manufactured or processed in the United States.’’ Pursuant to this authority, and in an effort to better understand the universe of chemicals actually in commerce at present, EPA is considering an effort to reset the TSCA Inventory. While there are a number of issues and questions that would need to be resolved if EPA does move forward with this effort it necessarily will need to obtain information on currently manufactured and/or imported chemicals. Additional information on ChAMP and EPA’s current thinking can be found at: http:// www.epa.gov/CHAMP. C. Why is EPA Taking This Action? EPA believes that ChAMP provides a sound basis for realizing further progress by EPA on assessing and managing chemicals. The SPP effort has great potential to achieve greater public health and environmental protection by promoting a more integrated approach to chemicals assessment and management in North America. By sharing information and the assessment VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:08 Apr 16, 2008 Jkt 214001 burden North America will be able to more quickly, efficiently, and costeffectively determine the need for, and possibly take, risk management actions on a greater number of chemicals. Work done by the U.S. to meet its 2012 SPP commitment represents an important contribution to this effort and to meeting U.S. domestic chemical assessment and management needs. The two new initiatives being considered complement and strengthen ChAMP by expanding EPA’s efforts to include inorganic HPV chemicals and an effort focused on resetting the TSCA Inventory. 20923 Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR) to improve public health protection through the control of microbial contaminants by focusing on systems with elevated Cryptosporidium risk. EPA has determined that the proposed Stage 2 DDBPR and LT2ESWTR revisions submitted by Arkansas are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA proposes to approve these program revisions. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY All interested parties may request a public hearing.

ACTION: Notice of Bulletin. AGENCY: In 2001, the President’s Management Council selected the Federal Asset Sales (eFAS) initiative as one of the President’s Electronic Government initiatives. The eFAS initiative is designed to make it easier for citizens and businesses to locate available Government assets, both real SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and personal, from a single portal location. The attached Bulletin provides instructions to Federal agencies on the advertising and reporting of sales of Federally-owned real property in accordance with the eFAS initiative. The General Services Administration will be publishing the posting and reporting requirements described in the Bulletin in an amendment to the Federal Management Regulation shortly.

Dated: April 9, 2008. Kevin Messner, Acting Associate Administrator, Office of Governmentwide Policy. Real Property TO: Heads of Federal agencies SUBJECT: Real Property Federal Asset Sales 1. Purpose. This Bulletin provides general information to Federal agencies concerning the sale of Federally-owned real property in accordance with the Federal Asset Sales (eFAS) initiative, one of the President’s Electronic Government (E–Gov) initiatives. It contains instructions requiring Federal agencies to utilize the Federal Asset Sales portal (GovSales.gov) when advertising surplus real property and provides instructions to Federal agencies for reporting sales of real property. 2. Expiration. This Bulletin contains information of a continuing nature and will remain in effect until canceled. 3. Background. Each year, the Federal Government disposes of real and personal property. In 2001, the President’s Management Council selected the eFAS initiative as one of the President’s E–Gov initiatives. Prior to 2001, Federal agencies used multiple methods to market excess property, making it difficult for the public to locate and buy surplus Federal assets. This initiative strives to simplify locating government assets for sale, and to improve the promotion of Government sales through a centralized, citizen-centric web portal solution. The vision of the eFAS portal solution is to create a secure, efficient and effective online single-point of entry for the public to seek Federally-owned real and personal property assets available for sale. In September 2005, representatives from the Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and the General Services Administration’s (GSA) Public Buildings Service developed and launched the Real Property Asset Listing Portal, a webbased entry point designed to facilitate the sale of surplus Government real property assets. In October 2006, the GovSales.gov website was launched as part of the eFAS Presidential E–Gov initiative. E:\FR\FM\17APN1.SGM 17APN1
