ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces EPA’s decision to modify certain provisions and risk mitigation measures that were specified in the 2005 Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED) for the pesticide xylene, an aquatic herbicide used in irrigation canals. EPA conducted this reassessment of the xylene RED in response to comments received during the public comment period. Based on new information received, and in a continuing effort to mitigate risk, the Agency has made certain modifications to the xylene RED. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tracy L.

How Can I Get Copies of this Document and Other Related Information? EPA has established a docket for this action under docket identification (ID) number EPA–HQ–OPP–2006–0145. Publicly available docket materials are available either in the electronic docket at http://www.regulations.gov, or, if only available in hard copy, at the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) Regulatory Public Docket in Rm. S–4400, One Potomac Yard (South Bldg.), 2777 S. PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59537 Crystal Dr., Arlington, VA. The hours of operation of this Docket Facility are from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. The Docket Facility telephone number is (703) 305–5805. II. Background A. What Action is the Agency Taking? Section 4 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) directs EPA to reevaluate existing pesticides to ensure that they meet current scientific and regulatory standards. In 2005, EPA issued a RED for xylene under section 4(g)(2)(A) of FIFRA. In response to a notice of availability published in the Federal Register of May 22, 2006 (71 FR 14511) (FRL–7766–3), the Agency received substantive comments and information from commenters. The Agency’s response to comments is available for viewing in the docket. The amended xylene RED reflects changes resulting from Agency consideration of the comments received on provisions of the RED, as well as efforts by the Agency to appropriately mitigate overall risk. The addendum to the RED for xylene concludes EPA’s reregistration eligibility decision-making process for this pesticide. The xylene addendum includes: A summary of additional usage information provided by the Bureau of Reclamation and other stakeholders; a summary of the conclusions from revised human health risk assessments; Agency reconsideration of the need for removing the existing exemption from a tolerance; the addition of an ecological data requirement; revised ecological mitigation measures; and an updated Label Table, which summarizes specific labeling language required on product labels. Based on studies from the open literature and other information, the Agency has determined that crops irrigated with xylene-treated water may bear finite residues of xylene, albeit, at very low levels. Therefore, it is appropriate to retain the existing tolerance exemption for xylene to address any potential residues in food. The Agency has determined, based on additional usage information and revised assessments, that use of xylene does not present dermal risks of concern for occupational workers. As the potential for inhalation exposures to workers is uncertain at this time, given the lack of data, the Agency is requiring additional personal protective equipment (i.e., half-face respirator with an organic vapor-removing cartridge) for workers who apply or otherwise handle xylene.
