PROPOSED RULES

National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; National Priorities List: Deletion of the Mosley Road
Sanitary Landfill Superfund Site [FR DOC# 2013-19482] SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region
6 is issuing a Notice of Intent to Delete the Mosley Road Sanitary Landfill (MRSL) Superfund Site (Site) located in
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, from the National Priorities List (NPL) and requests public comments on
this proposed action. 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 Oklahoma, through the Oklahoma Department of
Environmental Quality (ODEQ), have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been
completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.

19486] SUMMARY: This document announces the availability of EPA’s response to a petition received by EPA under the
Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The TSCA section 21 petition, dated May 9, 2013, was submitted by American
University students, alumni, and faculty. The petitioners requested EPA to take action to prohibit the use of
hydrofluorosilicic acid (HFSA) as a water fluoridation agent. After careful consideration, EPA denied the TSCA section 21
petition for the reasons discussed in this document.

 

 

RULES

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Tennessee; Infrastructure Requirements for the 2008 Lead National
Ambient Air Quality Standards [FR DOC# 2013-19360] SUMMARY: EPA is taking final action to approve a portion of the
State Implementation Plan (SIP) submission, submitted by the State of Tennessee, through the Tennessee Department of
Environment and Conservation (TDEC), to demonstrate that the State meets the prevention of significant deterioration
(PSD) related infrastructure requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) for the 2008 Lead national ambient air quality
standards (NAAQS). The CAA requires that each state adopt and submit a SIP for the implementation, maintenance, and
enforcement of each NAAQS promulgated by EPA, which is commonly referred to as an “infrastructure” SIP. TDEC
certified that the Tennessee SIP contains provisions that ensure the 2008 Lead NAAQS are implemented, enforced, and
maintained in Tennessee (hereafter referred to as “infrastructure submission”). Tennessee provided to EPA an
infrastructure submission on October 19, 2009, to address the infrastructure requirements for the 2008 Lead NAAQS,
however the subject of this notice is limited to the PSD-related infrastructure elements. All other applicable Tennessee
infrastructure elements have been addressed in a separate rulemaking.

National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; National Priorities List: Deletion of the Mosley Road
Sanitary Landfill (MRSL) Superfund Site [FR DOC# 2013-19481] SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Region 6 is publishing a direct final Notice of Deletion of the MRSL Superfund Site (Site), located in Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, 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). This direct final deletion is
being published by EPA with the concurrence of the State of Oklahoma, through the Oklahoma Department of
Environmental Quality (ODEQ), because EPA has determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have
been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.
