Guidelines Establishing Test Procedures for the Analysis of Pollutants; Analytical Methods for Biological Pollutants in Wastewater and Sewage Sludge; Proposed Rule
Document Number: 05-16195
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-08-16
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This proposed regulation would amend the ``Guidelines Establishing Test Procedures for the Analysis of Pollutants'' under section 304(h) of the Clean Water Act (CWA), by adding analytical test procedures for enumerating the bacteria, Escherichia coli (E. coli) and enterococci, in wastewater; and by adding analytical test procedures for enumerating fecal coliforms and Salmonella in sewage sludge to the list of Agency-approved methods. Specifically, EPA is proposing both membrane filter (MF) and multiple-tube fermentation (MTF, i.e., multiple-tube, multiple-well) methods for E. coli and enterococci bacteria in wastewater, and MTF methods for fecal coliforms and Salmonella in sewage sludge. EPA's approval of these methods will help Regions, States, communities, and environmental laboratories better assess public health risks from microbiological pollutants.
Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Oklahoma; Attainment Demonstration for the Central Oklahoma Early Action Compact Area
Document Number: 05-16192
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-08-16
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The EPA is approving a revision to the Oklahoma State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the Secretary of the Environment on December 22, 2004 for Central Oklahoma. This revision will incorporate a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) and the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) into the Oklahoma SIP and includes a demonstration of attainment and maintenance for the 8-hour National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for ozone. The MOA outlines duties and responsibilities of each party for implementation of pollution control measures for the Central Oklahoma Early Action Compact (EAC) area. EPA is approving the photochemical modeling in support of the attainment demonstration for the 8-hour ozone standard within the Central Oklahoma EAC area and is approving the associated control measures. These actions strengthen the SIP in accordance with the requirements of sections 110 and 116 of the Federal Clean Air Act (the Act) and will result in emission reductions needed to help ensure attainment and maintenance of the 8-hour NAAQS for ozone.
