Download as PDF jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES 11246 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 40 / Tuesday, March 1, 2011 / Notices draft advisory report that responds to charge questions about the effectiveness and reliability of ballast water treatment technologies and ways to improve future assessments of ballast water treatment systems in order to protect waters from the risk of invasive species and to be protective of Clean Water Act standards. The SAB will comply with the provisions of FACA and all appropriate SAB Staff Office procedural policies. Background: Vessel ballast water discharges are a major source of nonidigenous species introductions to marine, estuarine, and freshwater ecosystems of the United States. Ballast water discharges are regulated by EPA under authority of the Clean Water Act (CWA) and the U.S. Coast Guard under authority of the Nonindigenous Aquatic Nuisance Prevention and Control Act, as amended (NANPCA). EPA’s Office of Water (OW) requested that the SAB review technical documents and available data on the effectiveness of ballast water treatment systems and provide advice on improving the performance of such systems. The SAB EPEC previously met on July 29–30, 2010; held public teleconferences on October 26, and November 4, 2010; and met on Jan. 25– 26, 2011. Additional information about this advisory activity may be found on the SAB Web site at http:// yosemite.epa.gov/sab/sabproduct.nsf/ fedrgstr_activites/ BW%20discharge?OpenDocument. The purpose of the two teleconferences on March 15, 2011 and March 16, 2011 is for the Committee to discuss their draft advisory report. Availability of Teleconference Materials: The teleconference agenda and other materials in support of the meeting will be posted on the SAB Web site at http://www.epa.gov/sab in advance of the meeting. Procedures for Providing Public Input: Public comment for consideration by EPA’s Federal advisory committees and panels has a different purpose from public comment provided to EPA program offices. Therefore, the process for submitting comments to a Federal advisory committee is different from the process used to submit comments to an EPA Program office. Federal advisory committees and panels, including scientific advisory committees, provide independent advice to EPA. Members of the public can submit comments for a Federal advisory committee to consider as it develops advice for EPA. They should send their comments directly to the Designated Federal Officer for the relevant advisory committee. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:42 Feb 28, 2011 Jkt 223001 Oral Statements: In general, individuals or groups requesting an oral presentation at a public teleconference will be limited to five minutes per speaker. Interested parties should contact Ms. Goodman, DFO, in writing (preferably via e-mail) at the contact information noted above by March 7, 2011, to be placed on a list of public speakers for the meeting. Written Statements: Written statements should be received in the SAB Staff Office no later than March 7, 2011 so that the information may be made available to the SAB Committee members for their consideration. Written statements should be supplied to the DFO in the following formats: one hard copy with original signature, and one electronic copy via e-mail (acceptable file format: Adobe Acrobat PDF, WordPerfect, MS Word, MS PowerPoint, or Rich Text files in IBM–PC/Windows 98/2000/XP format). Submitters are requested to provide two versions of each document submitted with and without signatures, because the SAB Staff Office does not publish documents with signatures on its Web sites. Accessibility: For information on access or services for individuals with disabilities, please contact Ms. Goodman at the phone number or e-mail address noted above, preferably at least ten days prior to the meeting to give EPA as much time as possible to process your request.
