They are intended as specifications to be followed by the mill in sourcing yarn used to produce the fabric. However, because dyeing, finishing, and knitting can alter the characteristic of the yarn as it appears in the finished fabric, the specification therefore includes yarns appearing in the finished fabric as finer or coarser than the designated yarn sizes provided that the variation occurs after processing of the greige yarn and production of the fabric. In addition, while the fabric is intended to be piece-dyed, the specifications include both piece- and yarn-dyed to accommodate any Customs’ findings that the finished fabric appears to be yarn-dyed as a result of dye absorption.

COUNCIL ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY


Economic and Environmental Principles and Requirements for Water 
and Related Land Resources Implementation Studies; Final

AGENCY: Council on Environmental Quality.

ACTION: Notice of Availability of Final Principles and Requirements.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Section 2031 of the Water Resources Development Act of 2007 
(Pub. L. 110-114) directed the Secretary of the Army to revise the 
``Economic and Environmental Principles and Guidelines for Water and 
Related Land Resources Implementation Studies'' (Principles and 
Guidelines), dated March 10, 1983, consistent with several 
considerations enumerated in the Act.
    The revised Principles and Guidelines consist of three key 
components: (1) The Principles and Requirements (formerly called 
Principles and Standards), setting out broad policy and principles that 
guide investments; (2) the Interagency Guidelines, providing guidance 
to Federal agencies for determining the applicability of the Principles 
and Guidelines and for developing agency-specific implementing 
procedures for formulating, evaluating, and comparing water resources 
projects, programs, activities and related actions; and (3) the Agency 
Specific Procedures, outlining agency-specific procedures for 
incorporating the Principles and Requirements into agency missions and 
programs.
    This notice is to inform you that the Principles and Requirements, 
one key component of the Principles and Guidelines, are finalized and 
available at www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/ceq/initiatives/PandG. The Principles and Requirements were developed through a 
collaborative interagency process that promoted the open exchange of 
information and perspectives. The process has engaged the public 
through formal public review and workshops, and included an external 
peer review by the National Academies of Science as required by the 
Water Resources Development Act of 2007.
    Modernized Principles and Guidelines will improve Federal 
government decision making related to investment in water resource 
projects and, thus, improve how our country plans for infrastructure 
projects.

DATES: The Principles and Requirements were issued on March 18, 2013.
