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

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 legal authority to

DNR) submitted an application titled ``Electronic Sample Entry Verify'' 
for revision to its EPA-approved drinking water program under title 40 
CFR to allow new electronic reporting. EPA reviewed GA DNR's request to 
revise its EPA-authorized program and, based on this review, EPA 
determined that the application met the standards for approval of 
authorized program revision 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 Georgia's request to revise its Part 142--National Primary 
Drinking Water Regulations Implementation program to allow electronic

they may request a public hearing on EPA's action to approve the State 
of Georgia's request to revise its authorized National Primary Drinking 
Water Regulations Implementation program under 40 CFR part 142, in 
accordance with 40 CFR 3.1000(f), to allow for electronic reporting. 
Requests for a hearing must be submitted to EPA within 30 days of

prior to the scheduled hearing date. Frivolous or insubstantial 
requests for hearing may be denied by EPA. Following such a public 
hearing, EPA will review the record of the hearing and issue an order 
either affirming today's determination or rescinding such 
determination. If no timely request for a hearing is received and
