If you submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that you include your name, mailing address, and an email address or other contact information in the body of your comment and with any disk or CD ROM you submit.

If you send an email comment directly to the Docket without going through www.regulations.gov, your email address is automatically captured and included as part of the comment that is placed in the official public docket, and made available in EPA’s electronic public docket.

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, Sec.  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 program-specific authorization regulations. An 
application submitted under the subpart D procedures must show that the 
state, tribe or local government has sufficient

[[Page 38446]]

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.
    On January 4, 2010, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment 
(KDHE) submitted an application titled ``Department of Health and 
Environment Enterprise System'' for revisions/modifications of its EPA-
authorized programs under title 40 CFR. EPA reviewed KDHE'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 Kansas' request to revise/modify its following EPA-
authorized programs to allow electronic reporting under 40 CFR parts 
51, 70-71, 122, 141, 144, 146, 257, 258, 262, 264-266, 268, 270, 403,

    KDHE was notified of EPA's determination to approve its application 
with respect to the authorized programs listed above.
    Also, in this notice, EPA is informing interested persons that they 
may request a public hearing on EPA's action to approve the State of 
Kansas' request to revise its authorized public water system program 
under 40 CFR part 142, in accordance with 40 CFR 3.1000(f). Requests 
for a hearing must be submitted to EPA within 30 days of publication of

    (3) The signature of the individual making the request, or, if the 
request is made on behalf of an organization or other entity, the 
signature of a responsible official of the organization or other
