EPA seeks to achieve environmental justice, the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of any group, including minority and/or low income populations, in the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. To help address potential environmental justice issues, the Agency seeks information on any groups or segments of the population who, as a result of their location, cultural practices, or other factors, may have atypical or disproportionately high and adverse human health impacts or environmental effects from exposure to the pesticide(s) discussed in this document, compared to the general population. II. What Action is the Agency Taking? Under section 5 of FIFRA, 7 U.S.C. 136c, EPA can allow manufacturers to field test pesticides under development. Manufacturers are required to obtain EUPs before testing new pesticides or new uses of pesticides if they conduct experimental field tests on 10 acres or more of land or one acre or more of water. Pursuant to 40 CFR 172.11(a), the Agency has determined that the following EUP applications may be of regional and national significance, and therefore is seeking public comment on the EUP applications: Submitter: Washington State University Long Beach Research Unit, (86414–EUP–E and 86414–EUP–R). Pesticide Chemical: Imidacloprid. Summary of Request: Washington State University Long Beach Research Unit is applying for two EUPs for the use of Imidacloprid to investigate the efficacy and non-target effects of the pesticide against burrowing shrimp in oyster and manila clam beds in Willapa Bay and Grays harbor, Washington state. For 86414–EUP–R, the total quantity of product (Nuprid 2F, EPA Reg. No. 228– 484, containing 21.4% liquid imidacloprid) to be used is up to 80 pounds of active ingredient on up to 100 acres. For 86414–EUP–E, the total quantity of product (Mallet 0.5G, EPA Reg. No. 228–501, containing 0.5% PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61349 granular imidacloprid) to be used is up to 300 pounds of active ingredient on up to 30 acres. A copy of the applications and any information submitted is available for public review in the docket established for these EUP applications as described under ADDRESSES. Following the review of the applications and any comments and data received in response to this solicitation, EPA will decide whether to issue or deny the EUP requests, and if issued, the conditions under which it is to be conducted. Any issuance of EUPs will be announced in the Federal Register. List of Subjects Environmental protection, Experimental use permits. Dated: November 12, 2009.
