SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 13, 2005, the final Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule (CROMERR) was published in the Federal Register (70 FR 59848) and codified as part 3 of title 40 of the CFR. CROMERR establishes electronic reporting as an acceptable regulatory alternative to paper reporting and establishes requirements to assure that electronic documents are as legally dependable as their paper counterparts. Subpart D of CROMERR requires that state, tribal or local government agencies that receive, or wish to begin receiving, electronic reports under their EPA-authorized programs must apply to EPA for a revision or modification of those programs and obtain EPA approval. Subpart D provides standards for such approvals based on consideration of the electronic document receiving systems that the state, tribe, or local government will use to implement the electronic reporting. Additionally, § 3.1000(b) through (e) of 40 CFR part 3, subpart D provides special procedures for program revisions and modifications to allow electronic reporting, to be used at the option of the state, tribe or local government in place of procedures available under existing programspecific authorization regulations. An application submitted under the subpart D procedures must show that the state, tribe or local government has sufficient legal authority to implement the electronic reporting components of the programs covered by the application and will use electronic document receiving systems that meet the applicable subpart D requirements. Once an authorized program has EPA’s approval to accept electronic documents under certain programs, CROMERR § 3.1000(a)(4) requires that the program keep EPA apprised of any changes to laws, policies, or the electronic document receiving systems that have the potential to affect the program’s compliance with CROMERR § 3.2000. On September 10, 2010, the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WY DEQ) submitted an amended application titled ‘‘Environmental Information Technology Enterprise System’’ for revisions/modifications of its EPA-approved electronic reporting program under title 40 CFR to allow DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38197 new electronic reporting. EPA reviewed WY DEQ’s request to revise/modify its EPA-authorized programs and, based on this review, EPA determined that the application met the standards for approval of authorized program revisions/modifications set out in 40 CFR part 3, subpart D. In accordance with 40 CFR 3.1000(d), this notice of EPA’s decision to approve Wyoming’s request to revise/modify its following EPA-authorized programs to allow electronic reporting under 40 CFR parts 122 and 144, is being published in the Federal Register: Part 123—EPA Administered Permit Programs: The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System; Part 145—State Underground Injection Control Programs; and Part 239—Requirements for State Permit Program Determination of Adequacy. WY DEQ was notified of EPA’s determination to approve its application with respect to the authorized programs listed above. Matthew Leopard, Director, Office of Information Collection.
