Maine Marine Sanitation Device Standard-Receipt of Petition, 75717-75718 [E8-29478]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 240 / Friday, December 12, 2008 / Notices jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES (CASAC), an independent science advisory committee established pursuant to section 109 of the Clean Air Act and part of the EPA’s Science Advisory Board (SAB), provides independent scientific advice on NAAQS matters, including advice on EPA’s draft ISAs. EPA formally initiated its current review of the criteria for oxides of nitrogen and sulfur in December 2005 (70 FR 73236) and May 2006 (71 FR 28023) respectively, requesting the submission of recent scientific information on specified topics. In the initial stages of the criteria reviews, EPA recognized the merit of integrating the science assessment for these two pollutants due to their combined effects on atmospheric chemistry, deposition processes, and environment-related public welfare effects. In July 2007 (72 FR 34004), EPA held a workshop to discuss, with invited scientific experts, initial draft materials prepared in the development of the ISA and supplementary annexes for oxides of nitrogen and sulfur. EPA’s ‘‘Draft Plan for Review of the Secondary National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Nitrogen Dioxide and Sulfur Dioxide’’ was made available in September 2007 for public comment and was discussed by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) via a publicly accessible teleconference consultation on October 30, 2007 (72 FR 57568). EPA made its Draft Plan available on EPA’s Web site: https://www.epa.gov/ttn/ naaqs/standards/no2so2sec/cr_pd.html. The draft ‘‘Integrated Science Assessment for Oxides of Nitrogen and Sulfur—Environmental Criteria; First External Review Draft’’ was released for review on December 21, 2007 (72 FR 72719). The CASAC reviewed the first draft document at a public peer review meeting on April 2–3, 2008. EPA addressed comments from the CASAC and the public in the second external review draft document, ‘‘Integrated Science Assessment for Oxides of Nitrogen and Sulfur—Environmental Criteria; Second External Review Draft,’’ which was released for public comment on August 12, 2008 (72 FR 46908). The second draft was reviewed by the CASAC at a public meeting on October 2–3, 2008. EPA has considered comments by CASAC and by the public in preparing this final ISA. Dated: December 4, 2008.
