Section 6(f)(1) of FIFRA provides that a registrant of a pesticide product may at any time request that any of its pesticide registrations be canceled. FIFRA further provides that, before acting on the request, EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any such request in the Federal Register. Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA requires that before acting on a request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide a 30-day public comment period on the request for voluntary cancellation or use termination. In addition, FIFRA section 6(f)(1)(C) requires that EPA provide a 180-day comment period on a request for voluntary cancellation or termination of any minor agricultural use before granting the request, unless: 1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or 2. The EPA Administrator determines that continued use of the pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment. The registrants in Table 2 of Unit II. have not requested that EPA waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 180-day comment period on the proposed requests. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Request Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for cancellation should submit such withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. If the products have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation and all other provisions of any earlier cancellation action are controlling. V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products that are currently in the United States that were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the cancellation action. Because the Agency has identified no significant potential risk concerns associated with VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:44 Aug 19, 2014 Jkt 232001 these pesticide products, upon cancellation of the products identified in Table 1 of Unit II., EPA anticipates allowing registrants to sell and distribute existing stocks of these products for 1 year after publication of the Cancellation Order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing the pesticides identified in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons other than registrants will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled products.

ACTION: Notice; request for comment. AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49313 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). DATES: Comments must be received on or before September 19, 2014.
