SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The site to be deleted from the NPL is: Whitehouse Oil Pits, Whitehouse, Florida. A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was published in the Federal Register (83 FR 33171) on July 17, 2018. The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was August 16, 2018. Two public comments were received; one of the public comments PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 47295 does not address the rulemaking or deletion. The other public comment was about the risk posed by the waste that was left on the Site in the containment remedy, the potential to support recreational or ecological land uses in the future on the Site, and monitoring and additional cleanup at the Site. This comment is addressed by the requirements and procedures in the Site Operations, Monitoring and Maintenance Plan which requires ongoing groundwater sampling and analysis, as well as requiring Site appropriate operations and maintenance, including inspections to ensure the on-going remedy is performing as designed. Also, the ongoing Five Year Review process will continue as long as there is waste left on the Site to assess remedy performance and protectiveness and assess any changing site conditions. This deletion does not preclude future actions under the Superfund rule-making that EPA can take action after deletion, as needed, and restore the site to the NPL, if there is any change found in the protectiveness of the remedy for the Site. Therefore, after evaluating these comments, EPA believes the deletion action for the Site is appropriate. A responsiveness summary was prepared and placed in both the docket, EPA– HQ–SFUND–1983–0002, on www.regulations.gov, and in the local repositories listed above. EPA maintains the NPL as the list of sites that appear to present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment. Deletion from the NPL does not preclude further remedial action. Whenever there is a significant release from a site deleted from the NPL, the deleted site may be restored to the NPL without application of the hazard ranking system. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability in the unlikely event that future conditions warrant further actions.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: In this document, the Commission continues its ongoing efforts to ensure that calls are completed to all Americans, including those in rural America. This Third Report and Order (Order) begins the Commission’s implementation of the Improving Rural Call Quality and Reliability Act of 2017 (RCC Act). Pursuant to the RCC Act, the Order adopts rules to establish a registry for intermediate providers and require intermediate providers to register with the Commission before offering to transmit covered voice communications. In addition, the Order adopts rules to require covered providers to use only registered intermediate providers to transmit covered voice communications and requires covered providers to maintain the capability to disclose the identities of any intermediate providers relied on in the call path to the Commission. SUMMARY: Effective October 19, 2018, except for the addition of 47 CFR 64.2115, which requires approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The Commission will publish a document in the Federal Register announcing approval of this requirement and the date the rule will become effective.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This is a summary of the Commission’s Third Report and Order in WC Docket No. 13– 39, adopted on August 13, 2018 and released on August 15, 2018. The full text of this document, including all Appendices, is available for public inspection during regular business hours in the FCC Reference Information Center, Portals II, 445 12th Street SW, Room CY–A257, Washington, DC 20554. It is also available on the Commission’s website at https://www.fcc.gov/ document/fcc-registry-boost-provideraccountability-rural-call-completion. I. Synopsis 1. As directed by the RCC Act and informed by the record of this proceeding, in this Third Report and Order we establish a registry for intermediate providers and require intermediate providers to register with the Commission before offering to transmit covered voice communications. In addition, we adopt rules to require covered providers to use only registered intermediate providers to transmit covered voice communications, and we require covered providers to maintain the capability to disclose the identities of any intermediate providers relied on in the call path to the Commission. We also adopt a narrowly tailored exception to our rules in instances of force majeure. The RCC Act requires the Commission to promulgate rules establishing service quality standards ‘‘[n]ot later than 1 year after the date of enactment,’’ or by February 26, 2019. We accordingly sought comment on proposed service quality standards in the Third RCC FNPRM, 83 FR 21983. We will address the RCC Act’s service quality requirements in a subsequent Order. A. Establishment of Intermediate Provider Registry 2. In accordance with the RCC Act, we adopt our proposal to establish an intermediate provider registry. To ‘‘ensure the integrity of the transmission of covered voice communications to all customers in the United States[] and . . . prevent unjust or unreasonable discrimination among areas of the United States in the delivery of covered voice communications,’’ new section 262 of the Act requires the Commission to establish a publicly available intermediate provider registry on the Commission’s website. We will require PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 intermediate providers to register via a portal on the Commission’s website furnishing the same five categories of information that we proposed in the Third RCC FNPRM: (1) The intermediate provider’s business name(s) and primary address; (2) the name(s), telephone number(s), email address(es), and business address(es) of the intermediate provider’s regulatory contact and/or designated agent for service of process; (3) all business names that the intermediate provider has used in the past; (4) the state(s) in which the intermediate provider provides service; and (5) the name, title, business address, telephone number, and email address of at least one person as well as the department within the company responsible for addressing rural call completion issues. Further, this information will be made publicly available. 3. As explained in the Third RCC FNPRM, the first four categories of information are similar to the Commission’s existing registration requirements for interconnected VoIP and telecommunications carriers in other contexts. For example, ‘‘a telecommunications carrier that will provide interstate telecommunications service’’ is required to provide the following information via FCC Form 499–A ‘‘under oath and penalty of perjury’’: (1) The carrier’s business name(s) and primary address; (2) The names and business addresses of the carrier’s chief executive officer, chairman, and president, or, in the event that a company does not have such executives, three similarly seniorlevel officials of the company; (3) The carrier’s regulatory contact and/or designated agent; (4) All names that the carrier has used in the past; and (5) The state(s) in which the carrier provides telecommunications service.’’ The Commission’s rules also require common carriers, interconnected VoIP providers, and non-interconnected VoIP providers to provide the contact information, including ‘‘a name, business address, telephone or voicemail number, facsimile number, and, if available, internet email address,’’ for service of process purposes. Such entities are also required to ‘‘list any other names by which it is known or under which it does business, and, if the carrier, interconnected VoIP provider, or non-interconnected VoIP provider is an affiliated company, the parent, holding, or management company.’’ The record reflects that ‘‘the E:\FR\FM\19SER1.SGM 19SER1

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 4 announces 
the deletion of the Whitehouse Oil Pits Superfund Site, also known as 
``Whitehouse Waste Oil Pits'', (Site) located in Whitehouse, Florida, 
from the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL, promulgated pursuant 
to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended, is an 
appendix of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution 
Contingency Plan (NCP). The EPA and the State of Florida, through the 
Florida Department of Environmental Protection, have determined that 
all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other than operation and 
maintenance, monitoring, and five-year reviews, have been completed. 
However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under 
Superfund.

DATES: This action is effective September 19, 2018.

ADDRESSES: Docket: EPA has established a docket for this action under 
Docket Identification No. EPA-HQ-SFUND-1983-0002. All documents in the 
docket are listed on the https://www.regulations.gov website. Although 
listed in the index, some information is not publicly available, i.e.,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The site to be deleted from the NPL is: 
Whitehouse Oil Pits, Whitehouse, Florida. A Notice of Intent to Delete 
for this Site was published in the Federal Register (83 FR 33171) on 
July 17, 2018.
    The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was 
August 16, 2018. Two public comments were received; one of the public 
comments does not address the rulemaking or deletion. The other public 
comment was about the risk posed by the waste that was left on the Site 
in the containment remedy, the potential to support recreational or 
ecological land uses in the future on the Site, and monitoring and 
additional cleanup at the Site. This comment is addressed by the 
requirements and procedures in the Site Operations, Monitoring and 
Maintenance Plan which requires ongoing groundwater sampling and 
analysis, as well as requiring Site appropriate operations and 
maintenance, including inspections to ensure the on-going remedy is 
performing as designed. Also, the ongoing Five Year Review process will 
continue as long as there is waste left on the Site to assess remedy 
performance and protectiveness and assess any changing site conditions. 
This deletion does not preclude future actions under the Superfund 
rule-making that EPA can take action after deletion, as needed, and 
restore the site to the NPL, if there is any change found in the 
protectiveness of the remedy for the Site. Therefore, after evaluating 
these comments, EPA believes the deletion action for the Site is 
appropriate. A responsiveness summary was prepared and placed in both 
the docket, EPA-HQ-SFUND-1983-0002, on www.regulations.gov, and in the 
local repositories listed above.
    EPA maintains the NPL as the list of sites that appear to present a 
significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment. 
Deletion from the NPL does not preclude further remedial action. 
Whenever there is a significant release from a site deleted from the 
NPL, the deleted site may be restored to the NPL without application of 
the hazard ranking system. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not 
affect responsible party liability in the unlikely event that future 
conditions warrant further actions.
