ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The EPA is hereby granting a waiver of the Buy America requirements of ARRA Section 1605 under the authority of Section 1605(b)(2) [manufactured goods are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality] to the Town of Newburyport, Massachusetts (‘‘Town’’) for the purchase of a foreign manufactured rotary sludge dewatering press. This is a project specific waiver and only applies to the use of the specified product for the ARRA project being proposed. Any other ARRA recipient that wishes to use the same product must apply for a separate waiver based on project specific circumstances. The Town’s proposed wastewater treatment facility improvements will include replacement of the existing belt filter presses for sludge generated at the plant. Based upon information submitted by the Town and its consultants, it was determined that two 4-channel rotary press sludge dewatering units, manufactured by Fournier Industries of Quebec, Canada, will meet the Town’s design and performance specifications. The Acting Regional Administrator is making this determination based on the review and recommendations of the Municipal Assistance Unit. The Town, through its consulting engineers, has provided sufficient documentation to support their request. The Assistant Administrator of the Office of Administration and Resources Management has concurred on this decision to make an exception to Section 1605 of ARRA. This action permits the purchase of two 4-channel rotary press sludge dewatering units, manufactured by Fournier Industries, by the Town, as specified in its August 13, 2009 request, as part of the improvements to the wastewater treatment facility.
