Notice of Ability To Pay Settlement Agreement for the Murray Laundry Superfund Site (Site) Under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act
Document Number: 2014-19773
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-20
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
As required by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended (CERCLA), notice is hereby given that a Section 122 (h)(l) settlement for an ability to pay party is proposed by the United States, on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Murray Towers, L.C. (Murray Towers), a Utah limited liability company, for the payment of certain response costs incurred at the Murray Laundry Site in unincorporated Salt Lake County, Utah (Site). The Site encompasses approximately 3.5 acres in unincorporated Salt Lake County, Utah. Murray Towers owns property within the Site, located at 4220 South State Street in unincorporated Salt Lake County, Utah (Property). From 1913-1977, a laundry facility operated at the Site. All the buildings associated with the historic Murray Laundry facility were demolished in 1982. Thereafter, the Site was used as a dumping ground for waste dirt, asphalt, and concrete. In 1999, underground storage tanks and perchloroethene (PCE) contaminated water were discovered. The tanks were removed, however contaminated soils remained on-Site. The EPA conducted a time-critical removal action in 2013 to address the release or threatened release of hazardous substances. The action consisted of removing contaminated soils and replacing the excavated materials with clean backfill. The Site is currently in a mixed use area, with businesses and residences. Under the proposed settlement, Murray Towers must use best efforts to transfer the Property, and relinquish 90% of the net sales proceeds, less certain agreed upon fees, to the EPA. Should the Property not be sold within three years, the Property must be auctioned and sold to the highest bidder, with the EPA still receiving 90% of the net sales proceeds. In exchange for the proceeds, the EPA will release the CERCLA lien on the Property. The proposed settlement also contains a covenant not to sue under Sections 106 and 107(a) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9606 and 9607(a).

Hazardous Waste Management System; Identification and Listing of Hazardous Waste; Proposed Exclusion
Document Number: 2014-19771
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-08-20
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, also, ``the Agency'' or ``we'') is proposing to grant a petition submitted by the John Deere Des Moines Works (John Deere) of Deere & Company, in Ankeny, Iowa to exclude or ``delist'' up to 600 tons per calendar year of F006/F019 wastewater treatment sludge filter cake generated by John Deere's wastewater treatment system from the list of hazardous wastes. The Agency has tentatively decided to grant the petition based on an evaluation of waste-specific information provided by John Deere. This proposed decision, if finalized, would conditionally exclude the petitioned waste from the requirements of hazardous waste regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). This exclusion would be valid only when the wastewater treatment sludge filter cake is disposed of in a Subtitle D landfill which is permitted, licensed, or otherwise authorized by a State to manage industrial solid waste. If finalized, EPA would conclude that John Deere's petitioned waste is nonhazardous with respect to the original listing criteria and that there are no other current factors which would cause the waste to be hazardous.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards: Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Communications
Document Number: 2014-19746
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-08-20
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document initiates rulemaking that would propose to create a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS), FMVSS No. 150, to require vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication capability for light vehicles (passenger cars and light truck vehicles (LTVs)) and to create minimum performance requirements for V2V devices and messages. The agency believes that requiring V2V communication capability in new light vehicles would facilitate the development and introduction of a number of advanced vehicle safety applications. Some crash warning V2V applications, like Intersection Movement Assist (IMA) and Left Turn Assist (LTA), rely on V2V-based messages to obtain information to detect and then warn drivers of possible safety risks in situations where other technologies have less capability. Both of those applications address intersection crashes, which are among the most deadly crashes that U.S. drivers currently face. NHTSA believes that V2V capability will not develop absent regulation, because there would not be any immediate safety benefits for consumers who are early adopters of V2V. V2V begins to provide safety benefits only if a significant number of vehicles in the fleet are equipped with it and if there is a means to ensure secure and reliable communication between vehicles. NHTSA believes that no single manufacturer would have the incentive to build vehicles able to ``talk'' to other vehicles, if there are no other vehicles to talk toleading to likely market failure without the creation of a mandate to induce collective action. Through this ANPRM, and through the accompanying technical report, ``Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications: Readiness of V2V Technology for Application,'' NHTSA presents the results of its initial research efforts. In this report, NHTSA has done a very preliminary estimate of the costs of V2V and the benefits for two V2V-based safety applications, IMA and LTA, for addressing intersection crashes and left-turning crashes, respectively. The report also explores technical, legal, security, and privacy issues related to the implementation of V2V. NHTSA seeks comment on the research report, and solicits additional information, data, and analysis that will aid the agency in developing an effective proposal to require new light vehicles to be V2V-capable. By mandating V2V technology in all new vehicles, but not requiring specific safety applications, it is NHTSA's belief that such capability will in turn facilitate market-driven development and introduction of a variety of safety applications, as well as mobility and environment-related applications that can potentially save drivers both time and fuel.
Notice of Administrative Settlement Agreement for Recovery of Past Response Costs Pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act
Document Number: 2014-19745
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-20
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
In accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (``CERCLA''), notice is hereby given that a proposed administrative settlement agreement for recovery of past response costs (``Proposed Agreement'') associated with Allied Terminals Ammonium Nitrate Release Site, Chesapeake, Virginia was executed by the Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA'') and is now subject to public comment, after which EPA may modify or withdraw its consent if comments received disclose facts or considerations that indicate that the Proposed Agreement is inappropriate, improper, or inadequate. The Proposed Agreement would resolve potential EPA claims under Section 107(a) of CERCLA, against Allied Terminals, Inc. (``Settling Party''). The Proposed Agreement would require Settling Party to reimburse EPA $186,000.00 for past response costs incurred by EPA for the Site. For thirty (30) days following the date of publication of this notice, EPA will receive written comments relating to the Proposed Agreement. EPA's response to any comments received will be available for public inspection at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region III, 1650 Arch Street Philadelphia, PA 19103.
