Telephone: (202) 564–6646. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: EPA is seeking public comment to determine the scope of environmental issues and reasonable alternatives to be addressed in the EA on the reissuance of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) general permit for the discharge of pollutants in stormwater discharges from new sources associated with industrial facilities where EPA is the permitting authority. EPA invites the public to submit comments electronically through email or by mail or fax to the address cited in the ADDRESSES section during the 30day comment period following the publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Since 1995, EPA has issued a series of NPDES Multi-Sector General Permits (MSGP) that cover areas where EPA is the permitting authority. At present, EPA is the permitting authority in four states (Idaho, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New Mexico), the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, all U.S. territories with the exception of the Virgin Islands, federal facilities in four states (Colorado, Delaware, Vermont, and Washington), most Indian lands and a few other specifically designated activities in specific states (e.g., oil and gas activities in Texas and Oklahoma). EPA’s current MSGP became effective on September 29, 2008 (see 73 FR 56572) and will expire on September 29, 2013 (Note: Facilities that obtained coverage under the 2008 MSGP prior to its expiration are automatically granted an administrative continuance of permit coverage. EPA has issued a memorandum concerning new facilities that begin discharging stormwater associated with industrial activity after September 29, 2013. This memorandum provides a ‘‘no action assurance’’ for the new facilities that comply with the requirements of the 2008 MSGP, subject to particular terms and conditions as set forth in the memorandum). On September 27, 2013, EPA proposed for public comment the proposed National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System general permit for the discharge of pollutants in stormwater discharges from industrial facilities. 78 Fed. Reg. 59675. The proposed permit, would replace the 2008 MSGP. EPA proposes to issue the multi-sector general permit for five (5) years, and to provide permit coverage for sectors of industrial point PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 source discharges that occur in areas not covered by an approved state NPDES program. EPA is currently planning to analyze two alternatives in the EA: No Action, that is not issuing the MSGP; and the proposed action, which is issuing the draft MSGP as proposed for a designated new source of industrial stormwater discharge. The EA will focus its analysis on the potential environmental impacts of both alternatives. Dated: November 12, 2013. Cliff Rader, Director, NEPA Compliance Division, Office of Federal Activities.
