Additionally, members may be asked to participate in ad hoc workgroups to develop policy recommendations, advice letters and reports to address specific program issues. Member Nominations: Any interested person and/or organization may nominate qualified individuals for membership. The EPA values and welcomes diversity. In an effort to obtain nominations of diverse candidates, the agency encourages nominations of women and men of all racial and ethnic groups. All nominations will be fully considered, but applicants need to be aware of the specific representation required by the SDWA for the current vacancies: State and local agencies concerned with water hygiene and public water supply (one vacancy); private organizations or groups demonstrating an active interest in the field of water hygiene and public water supply—of which two such members shall be associated with small, rural public water systems (two vacancies with at least one associated with small, rural public water systems); and the general public (three vacancies). Other criteria used to evaluate nominees will include: • Demonstrated experience with drinking water issues at the national, State or local level; • Excellent interpersonal, oral and written communication and consensusbuilding skills; • Willingness to commit time to the Council and demonstrated ability to work constructively on committees; • Absence of financial conflicts of interest; • Absence of appearance of a lack of impartiality; and • Background and experiences that would help members contribute to the diversity of perspectives on the Council, e.g., geographic, economic, social, cultural, educational backgrounds, professional affiliations and other considerations. Nominations must include a resume, which provides the nominee’s background, experience and educational qualifications, as well as a brief statement (one page or less) describing the nominee’s interest in serving on the Council and addressing the other criteria previously described. Nominees are encouraged to provide any VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:44 Aug 19, 2014 Jkt 232001 additional information that they feel would be useful for consideration, such as: availability to participate as a member of the Council; how the nominee’s background, skills and experience would contribute to the diversity of the Council; and any concerns the nominee has regarding membership.

The DFO will acknowledge receipt of nominations. Persons selected for membership will receive compensation for travel and a nominal daily compensation (if appropriate) while attending meetings. Additionally, all selected candidates will be designated as Special Government Employees (SGEs) and will be required to fill out the ‘‘Confidential Financial Disclosure Form for Environmental Protection Agency Special Government Employees’’ (EPA Form 3310–48). This confidential form provides information to the EPA ethics officials to determine whether there is a conflict between the SGE’s public duties and their private interests, including an appearance of a loss of impartiality as defined by Federal laws and regulations. The form may be viewed and downloaded through the ‘‘Ethics Requirements for Advisors’’ link on the EPA NDWAC Web site, http:// water.epa.gov/drink/ndwac/fact.cfm. Other sources, in addition to this Federal Register notice, may also be utilized in the solicitation of nominees.

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.
