ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Pursuant to section 6(f)(2) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), EPA is publishing this Notice of Intent to Suspend affecting several pesticide products. This Notice is issued by EPA pursuant to section 3(c)(2)(B) of FIFRA. The Notice of Intent to Suspend was issued following the Agency’s issuance of a Data Call-In Notice (DCI), which required the registrants of the affected pesticide products to take appropriate steps to secure certain data, and following the registrant’s failure to submit those data or to take other appropriate steps to secure the required data. The subject data were determined to be required to maintain in effect the existing registrations of the affected products. Failure to comply with the data requirements of a DCI is a basis for suspension of the affected registration under section 3(c)(2)(B) of FIFRA. DATES: The Notice of Intent to Suspend included in this Federal Register notice will become a final and effective suspension order automatically by operation of law 30 days after the date of the registrant’s receipt of the mailed Notice of Intent to Suspend or on June 29, 2012 if the mailed Notice of Intent to Suspend is returned to the Administrator as undeliverable, if delivery is refused, or if the Administrator otherwise is unable to accomplish delivery to the registrant after making reasonable efforts to do so, unless during that time a timely and adequate request for a hearing is made by a person adversely affected by the Notice of Intent to Suspend or the registrant has satisfied the Administrator that the registrant has complied fully with the requirements that served as a basis for the Notice of Intent to Suspend. Unit IV explains what must be done to avoid suspension under this notice (i.e., how to request a hearing or how to comply fully with the requirements that served as a basis for the Notice of Intent to Suspend).

an underground powerhouse with four 250-megawatt (MW) reversible pump-
turbine units with a total installed capacity of 1,000 MW; (9) four 
12.5-foot-diameter manifold branches that will combine into a single 
26-foot-diameter, 5,000-foot-long, partially steel-lined and partially
