National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; Revision To Increase Public Availability of the Administrative Record File
The EPA is taking final action on an amendment that was withdrawn in a January 22, 2013, Federal Register withdrawal notice.

Twenty-Fifth Update of the Federal Agency Hazardous Waste Compliance Docket
This Notice replaces the Notice published on November 6, 2012 in the Federal Register because that previous Notice inadvertently omitted the last page of Additions in the Tables section. Since 1988, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has maintained a Federal Agency Hazardous Waste Compliance Docket (``Docket'') under Section 120(c) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). Section 120(c) requires EPA to establish a Docket that contains certain information reported to EPA by Federal facilities that manage hazardous waste or from which a reportable quantity of hazardous substances has been released. As explained further below, the Docket is used to identify Federal facilities that should be evaluated to determine if they pose a threat to public health or welfare and the environment and to provide a mechanism to make this information available to the public. Today's notice identifies the Federal facilities not previously listed on the Docket and reported to EPA since the last update of the Docket on October 13, 2010. In addition to the list of additions to the Docket, this notice includes a section with revisions of the previous Docket list. Thus, the revisions in this update include 66 additions and 17 deletions, as well as 19 corrections to the Docket since the previous update. At the time of publication of this notice, the new total number of Federal facilities listed on the Docket is 2348.
Clean Air Act Grant: South Coast Air Quality Management District; Opportunity for Pubic Hearing

This determination, when final, will permit the SCAQMD to receive grant funding for FY 2013 from the EPA, under section 105 of the Clean Air Act.
