In response, EPA has developed the NexGen program, a collaborative exploration of new science and methods with the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences’ National Toxicology Program, Center for Disease Control’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, National Human Genome Research Institute, and the State of California’s Environmental Protection Agency. 16:35 Dec 29, 2010 II. Conference Information ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY I. Summary of Information About the Conference VerDate Mar<15>2010 The NexGen program aims to create a cheaper, faster, and more robust system for chemical risk assessment by incorporating new knowledge about molecular system biology. This is the beginning of a process that will evolve over several years, and engaging key stakeholders from the beginning is central to making it a success. The NexGen public dialogue conference in February 2011 offers stakeholders an opportunity to become involved early, comment on the process, and help direct the next phases. The conference will feature several informational presentations regarding the current science surrounding the NexGen program as well as highlights from an invitation-only scientists’ meeting that took place in November 2010. Following these presentations, breakout sessions will be held in order to obtain public feedback and give stakeholders an opportunity to voice questions, comments, and concerns.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Regional Administrator of EPA Region 6 is hereby granting a project waiver of the Buy American 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 Buffalo Island Regional Water District (‘‘District’’) for the purchase of a 15 horsepower (HP) vertical hollow shaft electric motor, for use in a water supply well. The 15 HP vertical hollow shaft electric motor is manufactured by foreign manufacturers and no United States manufacturer produces an alternative that meets the District’s technical specifications. This is a project specific waiver and only applies to the use of the specified product for the ARRA funded project being proposed. Any other ARRA project that may wish to use the same product must apply for a separate waiver based on the specific project circumstances. The Regional Administrator is making this determination based on the review and recommendations of the EPA Region 6, Water Quality Protection Division. The District has provided sufficient documentation to support its request. The Assistant Administrator of the EPA’s 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 a 15 HP vertical hollow shaft electric motor not manufactured in America, for the proposed project being implemented by the District. DATES: Effective Date: December 17, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 82389 In accordance with ARRA Section 1605(c) and 1605(b)(2), EPA hereby provides notice that it is granting a project waiver of the requirements of Section 1605(a) of Public Law 111–5, Buy American requirements to the District for the acquisition of a 15 HP vertical hollow shaft electric motor. The District has been unable to find an American made electric motor to meet its specific requirements of cross correlation functionality for pinpointing leaks throughout its water distribution system. Section 1605 of the ARRA requires that none of the appropriated funds may be used for the construction, alteration, maintenance, or repair of a public building or public work unless all of the iron, steel, and manufactured goods used in the project are produced in the United States unless a waiver is provided to the recipient by EPA. A waiver may be provided if EPA determines that (1) applying these requirements would be inconsistent with public interest; (2) iron, steel, and the relevant manufactured goods are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality; or (3) inclusion of iron, steel, and the relevant manufactured goods produced in the United States will increase the cost of the overall project by more than 25 percent. The District’s water system improvement project includes the development of a new water supply well serviced by a new vertical turbine well pump. The District has conducted a pumping test after the development of the new well and has determined that a 15 HP vertical hollow shaft electric motor is sufficient to provide the required production flow rate of 500 gallon per minute (gpm) at 87 feet Total Dynamic Head (TDH). The District is requesting a waiver for the use of a 15 HP vertical hollow shaft electric motor on the basis that there are no domestic manufacturers of the electric motors that will meet the District’s product specifications. The District contacted seventeen manufacturers and of the seventeen (17) listed manufacturers, only three (3) electric motor manufacturers were reported to make the 15 HP vertical hollow shaft electric motor, but none are manufactured in the United States. Based on additional research conducted by EPA Region 6, there does not appear to be any domestic electric motor manufacturers that would meet the District’s technical specifications. EPA’s national contractor prepared a technical assessment report based on the waiver request submittal. The report E:\FR\FM\30DEN1.SGM 30DEN1

    Wellmark International is prohibited from using, selling, or 
distributing propetamphos technical (EPA Reg. No. 2724-313), except for 
(i) Export consistent with FIFRA section 17, (ii) for proper disposal 
or (iii) to formulate existing stocks of propetamphos technical (EPA 
Reg. No. 2724-313) into its propetamphos end-use product (EPA Reg. No. 
2724-450) effective immediately. After March 30, 2012, Wellmark 
International is prohibited from using, as well as continuing to be 
prohibited from selling or distributing, its propetamphos technical 
(EPA Reg. No. 2724-313), except for export consistent with FIFRA 
section 17 or for proper disposal.
    The cancellation of the propetamphos end-use product (EPA Reg. No. 
2724-450) is effective March 30, 2012. Wellmark International is 
permitted to sell or distribute existing stocks of the canceled end-use 
product (EPA Reg. No. 2724-450) until such stocks are exhausted. 
Persons other than Wellmark International are allowed to sell, 
distribute, and use existing stocks of the canceled propetamphos end-
use product (EPA Reg. No 2724-450) until supplies are exhausted, 
provided that such sale, distribution, and use is consistent with the 
terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the 
canceled product. The existing stocks provisions outlined in this 
notice are intended to allow depletion of the amount of technical 
propetamphos (EPA Reg. No. 2724-313) that Wellmark International 
currently has on-hand from purchases made prior to its decision to 
request voluntary cancellation. Use until depletion will preclude 
environmental disposal concerns of quantities of undiluted propetamphos 
that cannot be formulated or used.
