Abstract: EPA would like to continue to collect annual compliance reports from obligated parties, quarterly reports for all EPA Moderated Transaction System (EMTS) users, generation and assignment of Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) quarterly reports from biofuels producers and importers, and third party disclosure reports from biofuel feedstock producers by way of the Agency’s Central Data Exchange (CDX). The recordkeeping and reporting will allow EPA to monitor compliance with the RFS program. EPA informs respondents that they may assert claims of business confidentially for information they submit in accordance with 40 CFR 2.203. Form Numbers: 5900–275 (RFSA101—RFS2 2011 Activity Report); 5900–276 (RFS0101—RFS2 2010 Activity Report); 5900–277 (RFG 1300— VOC Average Report); 5900–278 (RFS0901—RFS2 Production Outlook Report); 5900–279 (RFS0100 RFS Activity Report); 5900–280 (EMTS: RFS2 RIN Generation Report (Equivalent to RSF0400)); 5900–281 (RFS0201—RFS 1 Transaction Report); 5900–282 (RFS0301—RFS2 2010 Annual Compliance Report); 5900–283 (RFS0900—RFS2 Production Outlook Report); 5900–284 (RFS0200—RIN Transaction Report); 5900–285 (RFS0700—RFS2 Renewable Fuel Producer Co-Products); 5900–286 (RFS2 EMTS RIN Transaction Report); 5900– 287 (RFS0103—RFS 2012 Q1 Activity Report); 5900–288 (RFS0104—RFS2 Activity Report); 5900–289 (RFS0701— RFS2 Renewable Fuel Producer CoProducer); 5900–290 (RFS0601—RFS2 Renewable Fuel Producer Supplemental); 5900–291 (RFS0300— RFS2 Obligated Party Annual Compliance Report); 5900–292 (RFS0800—RFS2 Renewable Biomass Report); 5900–293 (RFS0801—RFS2 Renewable Biomass Report); 5900–294 (RFS0102—RFS2 2011 Activity Report); 5900–295 (RFS2 EPA Cellulosic Biofuel VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:32 Jul 29, 2013 Jkt 229001 Waiver Credit Form); 5900–296 (RFS0303—RFS2 Annual Compliance Report). Respondents/affected entities: Producers of renewable fuels, Importers, Obligated party, Parties who own RINs and Foreign Refiners. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (42 U.S.C. 7414 and 7542). Estimated number of respondents: 2,092,731 (total). Frequency of response: Annually, Quarterly & Daily. Total estimated burden: 608,220 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $69,337,137 (per year), which includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 812,913 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to adjustments to the estimates. At the onset of the RFS2 program, EMTS for RINs were not a feature of RFS1. For the new EMTS system, all parties who owned RINs were required to re-submit their application, disclose feedstock sources, prepare quarterly reports on RIN activity and submit annual compliance reports (obligated party only). Re-submittal provisions are no longer required, which will cause a decrease in total responses for this ICR. EMTS users will not be burdened to submit more reports in this information collection, unlike the previous. The total responses for industry decreased now that the final rule is no longer requiring re-submissions or quarterly reports for certain party members. To date, biofuels producers and importers are required to submit quarterly reports along with their third party disclosure on feedstock producers to EPA. All users of the EMTS system are required to submit quarterly RIN reports. The number of respondents or users of the EMTS system has more than doubled due to the additional response burden for mapping foreign and domestic plantation/forest land owners and foreign biofuels feedstock producers, which was not reflected in the previous ICR reporting period. With an increase of respondents, total burden hours have decreased from 1,421,133 to 608,220 hours. The reduction is due to the fact that the EMTS system’s automation structure helps users to prepare reports instantly, lessening the amount of time and cost needed to PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45925 respond, even with more than a million added users.

ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: This notice announces the availability of EPA’s Responsiveness Summary Concerning EPA’s May 9, 2013 Public Notice of Proposed Decisions To Add Waters and Pollutants to Louisiana’s 2012 Section 303(d) List. On May 9, 2013 EPA published a notice in the Federal Register at Volume 78, Number 90, pages 27233–27234 providing the public the opportunity to review its decision to partially approve and proposal to partially disapprove Louisiana’s 2012 Section 303(d) List. Specifically, EPA approved Louisiana’s listing of 323 waterbody pollutant combinations, and associated priority rankings. EPA proposed to disapprove Louisiana’s decisions not to list three waterbodies. These three waterbodies were added by EPA because the applicable numeric water quality standards marine criterion for dissolved oxygen was not attained in these segments. Based on the Responsiveness Summary, EPA finds no new information or persuasive arguments as to why the three waters should not be added to the 2012 Louisiana Section 303(d) List as proposed. Therefore, EPA is taking Final Action on the addition of three waterbody pollutant combinations to the final Louisiana 2012 Section 303(d) List.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act (CWA) requires that each state identify those waters for which existing technologybased pollution controls are not stringent enough to attain or maintain state water quality standards. For those waters, states are required to establish Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) according to a priority ranking. EPA’s Water Quality Planning and Management regulations include requirements related to the implementation of Section 303(d) of the CWA (40 CFR 130.7). The regulations require states to identify water quality limited waters still requiring TMDLs every two years. The list of waters still needing TMDLs must also include priority rankings and must identify the waters targeted for TMDL development during the next two years (40 CFR 130.7). Consistent with EPA’s regulations, Louisiana submitted to EPA its 2012 listing decisions under Section 303(d) on February 14, 2013. On May 1, 2013, EPA approved Louisiana’s 2012 listing of 323 water body-pollutant combinations and associated priority rankings, and proposed to disapprove Louisiana’s decisions not to list three waterbodies. On July 18, 2013, EPA finalized the action to disapprove Louisiana’s 2012 listing decisions not to list three water quality limited segments. EPA identified these additional waters and pollutants along with priority rankings for inclusion on the 2012 Section 303(d) List. Dated: July 18, 2013. David F.

Clean Water Act: Availability of List Decisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of availability.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces the availability of EPA's Responsiveness 
Summary Concerning EPA's May 9, 2013 Public Notice of Proposed 
Decisions To Add Waters and Pollutants to Louisiana's 2012 Section 
303(d) List.
    On May 9, 2013 EPA published a notice in the Federal Register at 
Volume 78, Number 90, pages 27233-27234 providing the public the 
opportunity to review its decision to partially approve and proposal to 
partially disapprove Louisiana's 2012 Section 303(d) List. 
Specifically, EPA approved Louisiana's listing of 323 waterbody 
pollutant combinations, and associated priority rankings. EPA proposed 
to disapprove Louisiana's decisions not to list three waterbodies. 
These three waterbodies were added by EPA because the applicable 
numeric water quality standards marine criterion for dissolved oxygen 
was not attained in these segments.
    Based on the Responsiveness Summary, EPA finds no new information 
or persuasive arguments as to why the three waters should not be added 
to the 2012 Louisiana Section 303(d) List as proposed. Therefore, EPA 
is taking Final Action on the addition of three waterbody pollutant 
combinations to the final Louisiana 2012 Section 303(d) List. The basis 
for these decisions is described in EPA's Record of Decision.

ADDRESSES: Copies of EPA's Responsiveness Summary Concerning EPA's July 
18, 2013 Public Notice of Final Decisions To Add Waters and Pollutants 
to Louisiana's 2012 Section 303(d) List can be obtained at EPA Region

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act (CWA) 
requires that each state identify those waters for which existing 
technology-based pollution controls are not stringent enough to attain 
or maintain state water quality standards. For those waters, states are 
required to establish Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) according to a 
priority ranking.
    EPA's Water Quality Planning and Management regulations include 
requirements related to the implementation of Section 303(d) of the CWA 
(40 CFR 130.7). The regulations require states to identify water 
quality limited waters still requiring TMDLs every two years. The list 
of waters still needing TMDLs must also include priority rankings and 
must identify the waters targeted for TMDL development during the next 
two years (40 CFR 130.7).
    Consistent with EPA's regulations, Louisiana submitted to EPA its 
2012 listing decisions under Section 303(d) on February 14, 2013. On 
May 1, 2013, EPA approved Louisiana's 2012 listing of 323 water body-
pollutant combinations and associated priority rankings, and proposed 
to disapprove Louisiana's decisions not to list three waterbodies. On 
July 18, 2013, EPA finalized the action to disapprove Louisiana's 2012 
listing decisions not to list three water quality limited segments. EPA 
identified these additional waters and pollutants along with priority 
rankings for inclusion on the 2012 Section 303(d) List.
