II. What is this document? This document serves as a technical and informational resource for States, Tribes, territories, and other stakeholders that want to protect aquatic life from the adverse effects of flow alteration. To that end, this report provides technical information about the effect of altered flow regimes on aquatic life and a nonprescriptive framework that may be used to help quantify targets for flow regime components that are protective of aquatic life and their habitats. The report also provides examples of state and tribal water quality standards designed to protect such flow regimes and discusses the potential impact of climate change on flow regimes. This technical report is not a rule and it, therefore, does not impose any mandatory requirements. State and Tribal decision makers retain the discretion to adopt approaches or information presented in this report on a case-by-case basis that differ from the approaches described in this report. III. Additional Information: EPA and USGS each conducted internal peer reviews of the report, and EPA managed a contractor-led independent external peer review of the Draft EPA–USGS Technical Report: Protecting Aquatic Life from Effects of Hydrologic Alteration. EPA will make the external peer review comments and Agency responses to these comments available in the docket at http:// www.regulations.gov. Dated: December 14, 2016.

For technical questions about individual alternative test method decisions, refer to the contact person identified in the individual approval document(s). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. General Information A. Does this notice apply to me? This notice will be of interest to entities regulated under 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 60, 61, and 63, state, local, and tribal agencies, and the EPA Regional offices responsible for implementation and enforcement of regulations under 40 CFR parts 60, 61, and 63. B. How can I get copies of this information? You may access copies of the broadly applicable alternative test method approval documents at https:// www.epa.gov/emc/broadly-applicableapproved-alternative-test-methods. II. Background Broadly applicable alternative test method approval decisions made by the EPA in 2016 under the NSPS, 40 CFR part 60 and the NESHAP, 40 CFR parts 61 and 63 are identified in this notice (see Table 1). Source owners and operators may voluntarily use these broadly applicable alternative test methods in lieu of otherwise specified reference test methods. Use of these broadly applicable alternative test methods does not change the applicable emission standards. As explained in a previous Federal Register notice published at 72 FR 4257 (January 30, 2007) and located at https://www.epa.gov/emc/broadlyapplicable-approved-alternative-testmethods, the EPA Administrator has the authority to approve the use of alternative test methods to comply with requirements under 40 CFR parts 60, 61, and 63. This authority is found in PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 sections 60.8(b)(3), 61.13(h)(1)(ii), and 63.7(e)(2)(ii). A similar authority is granted in 40 CFR part 65 under section 65.158(a)(2). In the past, we have performed thorough technical reviews of numerous source-specific requests for alternatives and modifications to test methods and procedures. Based on these reviews, we have often found that these changes or alternatives would be equally valid and appropriate to apply to other sources within a particular class, category, or subcategory. Consequently, we have concluded that, where a method modification or an alternative method is clearly broadly applicable to a class, category, or subcategory of sources, it is both more equitable and efficient to approve its use for all appropriate sources and situations at the same time. It is important to clarify that alternative methods are not mandatory but permissive. Sources are not required to employ such a method but may choose to do so in appropriate circumstances. Source owners or operators should review the specific broadly applicable alternative method approval decision at https:// www.epa.gov/emc/broadly-applicableapproved-alternative-test-methods before electing to employ the alternative method. As per section 63.7(f)(5), a source owner or operator electing to use an alternative method for 40 CFR part 63 standards must continue to use the alternative method until otherwise authorized. The criteria for approval and procedures for submission and review of broadly applicable alternative test methods are outlined at 72 FR 4257 (January 30, 2007). We will continue to announce approvals for broadly applicable alternative test methods at https://www.epa.gov/emc/broadlyapplicable-approved-alternative-testmethods and publish a notice annually that summarizes approvals for broadly applicable alternative test methods during the preceding year. This notice comprises a summary of seven such approval documents posted to our Technology Transfer Network between January 1, 2016, and December 12, 2016. The alternative method decision letter/memo number, the reference method affected, sources allowed to use this alternative, and the modification or alternative method allowed are summarized in Table 1 of this notice. For more detailed information, please refer to the complete copies of these approval documents available at https://www.epa.gov/emc/ broadly-applicable-approvedalternative-test-methods, as Table 1 serves only as a brief summary of the E:\FR\FM\21DEN1.SGM 21DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 245 / Wednesday, December 21, 2016 / Notices broadly applicable alternative test methods. If you are aware of reasons why a particular alternative test method approval that we issued should not be broadly applicable or that its use should in some way be limited, we request that you make us aware of the reasons in writing, and we will revisit the broad approval. Any objection to a broadly applicable alternative test method, as well as the resolution of that objection, will be announced at https:// www.epa.gov/emc/broadly-applicableapproved-alternative-test-methods and in the subsequent Federal Register notice. If we decide to retract a broadly applicable test method, we will continue to grant case-by-case approvals, as appropriate, and will (as 93683 states, local and tribal agencies and the EPA Regional offices should) consider the need for an appropriate transition period for users either to request caseby-case approval or to transition to an approved method.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

A. Does this notice apply to me?

    This notice will be of interest to entities regulated under 40 Code 
of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 60, 61, and 63, state, local, and 
tribal agencies, and the EPA Regional offices responsible for 
implementation and enforcement of regulations under 40 CFR parts 60, 
61, and 63.

B. How can I get copies of this information?

    You may access copies of the broadly applicable alternative test 
method approval documents at https://www.epa.gov/emc/broadly-applicable-approved-alternative-test-methods.

II. Background

    Broadly applicable alternative test method approval decisions made 
by the EPA in 2016 under the NSPS, 40 CFR part 60 and the NESHAP, 40 
CFR parts 61 and 63 are identified in this notice (see Table 1). Source 
owners and operators may voluntarily use these broadly applicable 
alternative test methods in lieu of otherwise specified reference test 
methods. Use of these broadly applicable alternative test methods does 
not change the applicable emission standards.
    As explained in a previous Federal Register notice published at 72 
FR 4257 (January 30, 2007) and located at https://www.epa.gov/emc/broadly-applicable-approved-alternative-test-methods, the EPA 
Administrator has the authority to approve the use of alternative test 
methods to comply with requirements under 40 CFR parts 60, 61, and 63. 
This authority is found in sections 60.8(b)(3), 61.13(h)(1)(ii), and 
63.7(e)(2)(ii). A similar authority is granted in 40 CFR part 65 under 
section 65.158(a)(2). In the past, we have performed thorough technical 
reviews of numerous source-specific requests for alternatives and 
modifications to test methods and procedures. Based on these reviews, 
we have often found that these changes or alternatives would be equally 
valid and appropriate to apply to other sources within a particular 
class, category, or subcategory. Consequently, we have concluded that, 
where a method modification or an alternative method is clearly broadly 
applicable to a class, category, or subcategory of sources, it is both 
more equitable and efficient to approve its use for all appropriate 
sources and situations at the same time.
    It is important to clarify that alternative methods are not 
mandatory but permissive. Sources are not required to employ such a 
method but may choose to do so in appropriate circumstances. Source 
owners or operators should review the specific broadly applicable 
alternative method approval decision at https://www.epa.gov/emc/broadly-applicable-approved-alternative-test-methods before electing to 
employ the alternative method. As per section 63.7(f)(5), a source 
owner or operator electing to use an alternative method for 40 CFR part 
63 standards must continue to use the alternative method until 
otherwise authorized.
    The criteria for approval and procedures for submission and review 
of broadly applicable alternative test methods are outlined at 72 FR 
4257 (January 30, 2007). We will continue to announce approvals for 
broadly applicable alternative test methods at https://www.epa.gov/emc/broadly-applicable-approved-alternative-test-methods and publish a 
notice annually that summarizes approvals for broadly applicable 
alternative test methods during the preceding year.
    This notice comprises a summary of seven such approval documents 
posted to our Technology Transfer Network between January 1, 2016, and 
December 12, 2016. The alternative method decision letter/memo number, 
the reference method affected, sources allowed to use this alternative, 
and the modification or alternative method allowed are summarized in 
Table 1 of this notice. For more detailed information, please refer to 
the complete copies of these approval documents available at https://www.epa.gov/emc/broadly-applicable-approved-alternative-test-methods, 
as Table 1 serves only as a brief summary of the

broadly applicable alternative test methods.
    If you are aware of reasons why a particular alternative test 
method approval that we issued should not be broadly applicable or that 
its use should in some way be limited, we request that you make us 
aware of the reasons in writing, and we will revisit the broad 
approval. Any objection to a broadly applicable alternative test 
method, as well as the resolution of that objection, will be announced 
at https://www.epa.gov/emc/broadly-applicable-approved-alternative-test-methods and in the subsequent Federal Register notice. If we 
decide to retract a broadly applicable test method, we will continue to 
grant case-by-case approvals, as appropriate, and will (as states, 
local and tribal agencies and the EPA Regional offices should) consider 
the need for an appropriate transition period for users either to 
request case-by-case approval or to transition to an approved method.
