SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Background The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000, as amended (42 U.S.C. 7384 et seq.), was originally enacted on October 30, 2000, and the primary responsibility for administering EEOICPA was assigned to the Department of Labor (DOL) by Executive Order 13179 (65 FR 77487). In section 2(c)(vii) of that Executive Order, DOE was directed to publish a list in the Federal Register of Atomic Weapons Employer (AWE) facilities, DOE facilities, and facilities owned and operated by a Beryllium Vendor (as those terms are defined in sections 7384l(5), 7384l(12) and 7384l(6) of EEOICPA, respectively). Pursuant to this direction, DOE published a list of these three types of facilities covered under EEOICPA on January 17, 2001 (66 FR 4003), and subsequently revised and republished the entire list on June 11, 2001 (66 FR 31218), December 27, 2002 (67 FR 79068), July 21, 2003 (68 FR 43095) and August 23, 2004 (69 FR 51825). In subsequent notices published on November 30, 2005 (70 FR 71815), June 28, 2007 (72 FR 35448), April 9, 2009 (74 FR 16191), August 3, 2010 (75 FR 45608), May 26, 2011 (76 FR 30695) and February 6, 2012 (77 FR 5781), DOE further revised the August 23, 2004 list by formally removing a total of fifteen AWE facilities without republishing the list in its entirety. Following the amendments to EEOICPA that were enacted as subtitle E of Title XXXI of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005, Public Law 108–375, 118 Stat. 1811, 2178 (October 28, 2004), OWCP promulgated final regulations governing its expanded responsibilities under EEOICPA on December 29, 2006 (71 FR 78520). One of those regulations, 20 CFR 30.5(x)(2), indicates that OWCP has adopted the list of DOE facilities that was published by DOE on August 23, 2004, and notes that OWCP ‘‘will E:\FR\FM\06MRN1.SGM 06MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 44 / Tuesday, March 6, 2012 / Notices pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES periodically update this list as it deems appropriate in its sole discretion by publishing a revised list of covered [DOE] facilities in the Federal Register.’’ In making these updates, § 30.5(x)(1) specifies that the Director of OWCP is solely responsible for determining if a particular work site under consideration meets the statutory definition of a Department of Energy facility. This sole responsibility is derived from the grant of primary authority to DOL to administer the EEOICPA claims process contained in section 2(a)(i) of Executive Order 13179. II. Purpose Since OWCP last published a notice listing all DOE facilities covered under EEOICPA in the Federal Register on November 24, 2010, the Director of OWCP has made several determinations regarding the status of work sites in connection with claims filed under EEOICPA. Those determinations are briefly described in this Supplementary Information and are memorialized in the two updated lists of DOE facilities published by OWCP today. The Director has determined that the Dayton Project (Units I and III in Dayton, Ohio and Unit IV in Oakwood, Ohio) meets the definition of a Department of Energy facility for the purposes of EEOICPA. Also, based on remediation activities that occurred pursuant to the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act of 1978, 42 U.S.C. 7901 et seq., the Director has determined that the following work sites meet the definition of a Department of Energy facility during the periods that such remediation activities took place: the Uranium Mills in Monument Valley and Tuba City, Arizona; the Climax Uranium Mill in Grand Junction, the New and Old Uranium Mills in Rifle, the Uranium Mills in Gunnison, Maybell and Naturita, and Uranium Mills No. 1 (East) and No. 2 (West) in Slick Rock, Colorado; the Uranium Mill in Lowman, Idaho; the Uranium Mills in Ambrosia Lake and Shiprock, New Mexico; the Uranium Mill and Disposal Cell in Lakeview, Oregon; Vitro Manufacturing (Canonsburg) in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania; the Uranium Mill in Falls City, Texas; the Uranium Mill in Mexican Hat, Utah; and the Uranium Mills in Converse County (Spook Site) and Riverton, Wyoming. In addition, OWCP’s research has led the Director to clarify or otherwise modify the designation of three work sites that were previously included in OWCP’s published lists. The first site, which was previously listed under Utah as the Uranium Mill in Moab, now appears as the Uranium Mill in Moab VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:56 Mar 05, 2012 Jkt 226001 (Atlas Site) in this listing. The second site, which was previously listed as the Nevada Operations Office, now appears as the Nevada Site Office. These two clarifications do not have any effect on the status of the two work sites in question, and are only intended to more precisely identify those facilities. The third facility, the Weldon Spring Plant, which is a facility with multiple locations in Weldon Spring, Missouri, has been divided into separate facilities and now appears in the lists published today as the following three facilities: The Weldon Spring Plant; the Weldon Spring Raffinate Pits; and the Weldon Spring Quarry. By dividing this third facility into three separate DOE facilities, OWCP will be better able to distinguish between the different operational periods of these locations, and will be able to more reliably obtain employment verification from the many different contractors that performed work at each location. By updating the two lists found below, OWCP is presenting the public with the most current listing of DOE facilities in order to assist potential claimants and their families. OWCP is continuing its efforts in this area as it adjudicates claims filed under EEOICPA, and further revisions of these lists should be expected. Although DOE maintains a Web site (http:// www.hss.energy.gov/healthsafety/fwsp/ advocacy/faclist/findfacility.cfm) that provides information on AWE facilities, Beryllium Vendor facilities and DOE facilities to the public, the information on that Web site regarding DOE facilities should not be relied upon as it may not be up to date, nor is it binding on OWCP’s adjudication of claims filed under EEOICPA. Instead, OWCP is solely authorized to give the public notice of the Director’s determinations regarding DOE facilities. III. Introduction to the Lists The five complete lists previously published by DOE included all three types of work sites described in Executive Order 13179, i.e., AWE facilities, Beryllium Vendor facilities, and DOE facilities. However, the lists published on June 23, 2009, November 24, 2010 and again today by OWCP only include work sites that meet the definition of a Department of Energy facility, because the authority to designate both AWE facilities and Beryllium Vendor facilities has been granted to DOE. However, since some work sites can meet the definition of more than just one type of covered work site during either the same or differing time periods, simply presenting one list of DOE facilities (without also PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13361 differentiating among them in some easily understood fashion) could lead the reader to wrongly conclude that a listed work site has always been a DOE facility when, in fact, it only had that status during a brief period. To lessen the potential for this type of misunderstanding, OWCP has decided to continue its practice of presenting two separate lists of DOE facilities. The first list consists exclusively of work sites that have only been DOE facilities for purposes of coverage under EEOICPA, and the second list consists of work sites that have also been at least one other type of covered work site in addition to a DOE facility. To see what other types of covered work sites the DOE facilities appearing in the second list are or have been, readers can refer to the Federal Register notices published by DOE on August 23, 2004 (69 FR 51825), November 30, 2005 (70 FR 71815), June 28, 2007 (72 FR 35448), April 9, 2009 (74 FR 16191), August 3, 2010 (75 FR 45608), May 26, 2011 (76 FR 30695) and February 6, 2012 (77 FR 5781). Since covered time periods for a particular DOE facility are statutorily limited to periods during which ‘‘operations’’ are or were performed by or on behalf of DOE (or its predecessor agencies) at that DOE facility, and when DOE (or its predecessor agencies) either had a proprietary interest in the facility or had entered into a particular type of contract with an entity regarding the facility, the lists below include date ranges during which covered employment at each work site could have been performed. These date ranges, however, do not reflect the exact day and month that a work site either acquired or lost its status as a DOE facility, and are not considered binding on OWCP in its adjudication of individual claims under EEOICPA. Rather, they are presented in this notice for the sole purpose of informing the public of the current results of OWCP’s research into the operational histories of these work sites, some of which extend back to the establishment of the Manhattan Engineer District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on August 13, 1942. OWCP’s efforts in this area are continuing, and it expects that the date ranges included in this notice will change with the publication of future notices. DOE facilities appearing on the lists that have undergone environmental remediation at the direction of or directly by DOE are identified by the following symbol—†—after the date range during which such environmental remediation occurred. During those periods, only the work of employees of DOE contractors who actually E:\FR\FM\06MRN1.SGM 06MRN1 13362 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 44 / Tuesday, March 6, 2012 / Notices performed the remediation is ‘‘covered work’’ under EEOICPA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act 
of 2000, as amended (42 U.S.C. 7384 et seq.), was originally enacted on 
October 30, 2000, and the primary responsibility for administering 
EEOICPA was assigned to the Department of Labor (DOL) by Executive 
Order 13179 (65 FR 77487). In section 2(c)(vii) of that Executive 
Order, DOE was directed to publish a list in the Federal Register of 
Atomic Weapons Employer (AWE) facilities, DOE facilities, and 
facilities owned and operated by a Beryllium Vendor (as those terms are 
defined in sections 7384l(5), 7384l(12) and 7384l(6) of EEOICPA, 
respectively). Pursuant to this direction, DOE published a list of 
these three types of facilities covered under EEOICPA on January 17, 
2001 (66 FR 4003), and subsequently revised and republished the entire 
list on June 11, 2001 (66 FR 31218), December 27, 2002 (67 FR 79068), 
July 21, 2003 (68 FR 43095) and August 23, 2004 (69 FR 51825). In 
subsequent notices published on November 30, 2005 (70 FR 71815), June 
28, 2007 (72 FR 35448), April 9, 2009 (74 FR 16191), August 3, 2010 (75 
FR 45608), May 26, 2011 (76 FR 30695) and February 6, 2012 (77 FR 
5781), DOE further revised the August 23, 2004 list by formally 
removing a total of fifteen AWE facilities without republishing the 
list in its entirety.
    Following the amendments to EEOICPA that were enacted as subtitle E 
of Title XXXI of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization 
Act for Fiscal Year 2005, Public Law 108-375, 118 Stat. 1811, 2178 
(October 28, 2004), OWCP promulgated final regulations governing its 
expanded responsibilities under EEOICPA on December 29, 2006 (71 FR 
78520). One of those regulations, 20 CFR 30.5(x)(2), indicates that 
OWCP has adopted the list of DOE facilities that was published by DOE 
on August 23, 2004, and notes that OWCP ``will

[[Page 13361]]

periodically update this list as it deems appropriate in its sole 
discretion by publishing a revised list of covered [DOE] facilities in 
the Federal Register.'' In making these updates, Sec.  30.5(x)(1) 
specifies that the Director of OWCP is solely responsible for 
determining if a particular work site under consideration meets the 
statutory definition of a Department of Energy facility. This sole 
responsibility is derived from the grant of primary authority to DOL to 
administer the EEOICPA claims process contained in section 2(a)(i) of 
Executive Order 13179.

II. Purpose

    Since OWCP last published a notice listing all DOE facilities 
covered under EEOICPA in the Federal Register on November 24, 2010, the 
Director of OWCP has made several determinations regarding the status 
of work sites in connection with claims filed under EEOICPA. Those 
determinations are briefly described in this Supplementary Information 
and are memorialized in the two updated lists of DOE facilities 
published by OWCP today.
    The Director has determined that the Dayton Project (Units I and 
III in Dayton, Ohio and Unit IV in Oakwood, Ohio) meets the definition 
of a Department of Energy facility for the purposes of EEOICPA. Also, 
based on remediation activities that occurred pursuant to the Uranium 
Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act of 1978, 42 U.S.C. 7901 et seq., 
the Director has determined that the following work sites meet the 
definition of a Department of Energy facility during the periods that 
such remediation activities took place: the Uranium Mills in Monument 
Valley and Tuba City, Arizona; the Climax Uranium Mill in Grand 
Junction, the New and Old Uranium Mills in Rifle, the Uranium Mills in 
Gunnison, Maybell and Naturita, and Uranium Mills No. 1 (East) and No. 
2 (West) in Slick Rock, Colorado; the Uranium Mill in Lowman, Idaho; 
the Uranium Mills in Ambrosia Lake and Shiprock, New Mexico; the 
Uranium Mill and Disposal Cell in Lakeview, Oregon; Vitro Manufacturing 
(Canonsburg) in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania; the Uranium Mill in Falls 
City, Texas; the Uranium Mill in Mexican Hat, Utah; and the Uranium 
Mills in Converse County (Spook Site) and Riverton, Wyoming.
    In addition, OWCP's research has led the Director to clarify or 
otherwise modify the designation of three work sites that were 
previously included in OWCP's published lists. The first site, which 
was previously listed under Utah as the Uranium Mill in Moab, now 
appears as the Uranium Mill in Moab (Atlas Site) in this listing. The 
second site, which was previously listed as the Nevada Operations 
Office, now appears as the Nevada Site Office. These two clarifications 
do not have any effect on the status of the two work sites in question, 
and are only intended to more precisely identify those facilities. The 
third facility, the Weldon Spring Plant, which is a facility with 
multiple locations in Weldon Spring, Missouri, has been divided into 
separate facilities and now appears in the lists published today as the 
following three facilities: The Weldon Spring Plant; the Weldon Spring 
Raffinate Pits; and the Weldon Spring Quarry. By dividing this third 
facility into three separate DOE facilities, OWCP will be better able 
to distinguish between the different operational periods of these 
locations, and will be able to more reliably obtain employment 
verification from the many different contractors that performed work at 
each location.
    By updating the two lists found below, OWCP is presenting the 
public with the most current listing of DOE facilities in order to 
assist potential claimants and their families. OWCP is continuing its 
efforts in this area as it adjudicates claims filed under EEOICPA, and 
further revisions of these lists should be expected. Although DOE 
maintains a Web site (http://www.hss.energy.gov/healthsafety/fwsp/advocacy/faclist/findfacility.cfm) that provides information on AWE 
facilities, Beryllium Vendor facilities and DOE facilities to the 
public, the information on that Web site regarding DOE facilities 
should not be relied upon as it may not be up to date, nor is it 
binding on OWCP's adjudication of claims filed under EEOICPA. Instead, 
OWCP is solely authorized to give the public notice of the Director's 
determinations regarding DOE facilities.

III. Introduction to the Lists

    The five complete lists previously published by DOE included all 
three types of work sites described in Executive Order 13179, i.e., AWE 
facilities, Beryllium Vendor facilities, and DOE facilities. However, 
the lists published on June 23, 2009, November 24, 2010 and again today 
by OWCP only include work sites that meet the definition of a 
Department of Energy facility, because the authority to designate both 
AWE facilities and Beryllium Vendor facilities has been granted to DOE. 
However, since some work sites can meet the definition of more than 
just one type of covered work site during either the same or differing 
time periods, simply presenting one list of DOE facilities (without 
also differentiating among them in some easily understood fashion) 
could lead the reader to wrongly conclude that a listed work site has 
always been a DOE facility when, in fact, it only had that status 
during a brief period. To lessen the potential for this type of 
misunderstanding, OWCP has decided to continue its practice of 
presenting two separate lists of DOE facilities.
    The first list consists exclusively of work sites that have only 
been DOE facilities for purposes of coverage under EEOICPA, and the 
second list consists of work sites that have also been at least one 
other type of covered work site in addition to a DOE facility. To see 
what other types of covered work sites the DOE facilities appearing in 
the second list are or have been, readers can refer to the Federal 
Register notices published by DOE on August 23, 2004 (69 FR 51825), 
November 30, 2005 (70 FR 71815), June 28, 2007 (72 FR 35448), April 9, 
2009 (74 FR 16191), August 3, 2010 (75 FR 45608), May 26, 2011 (76 FR 
30695) and February 6, 2012 (77 FR 5781). Since covered time periods 
for a particular DOE facility are statutorily limited to periods during 
which ``operations'' are or were performed by or on behalf of DOE (or 
its predecessor agencies) at that DOE facility, and when DOE (or its 
predecessor agencies) either had a proprietary interest in the facility 
or had entered into a particular type of contract with an entity 
regarding the facility, the lists below include date ranges during 
which covered employment at each work site could have been performed. 
These date ranges, however, do not reflect the exact day and month that 
a work site either acquired or lost its status as a DOE facility, and 
are not considered binding on OWCP in its adjudication of individual 
claims under EEOICPA. Rather, they are presented in this notice for the 
sole purpose of informing the public of the current results of OWCP's 
research into the operational histories of these work sites, some of 
which extend back to the establishment of the Manhattan Engineer 
District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on August 13, 1942. OWCP's 
efforts in this area are continuing, and it expects that the date 
ranges included in this notice will change with the publication of 
future notices.
    DOE facilities appearing on the lists that have undergone 
environmental remediation at the direction of or directly by DOE are 
identified by the following symbol--[dagger]--after the date range 
during which such environmental remediation occurred. During those 
periods, only the work of employees of DOE contractors who actually

[[Page 13362]]

performed the remediation is ``covered work'' under EEOICPA.
