PROPOSED RULES

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Tennessee; Revisions to the Knox County Portion of the Tennessee
State Implementation Plan [FR DOC# 2013-20022] SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve a revision to the Knox County
portion of the Tennessee State Implementation Plan (SIP), submitted by the State of Tennessee, through the Tennessee
Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) on December 13, 2012. The SIP submittal revises the definition of
“Modification” in Knox County Air Quality Management Regulation Section 13 Definitions. TDEC considers Knox County’s
SIP revision to be as or more stringent than the Tennessee SIP requirements. EPA is approving the Knox County SIP
revision because the State has demonstrated that it is consistent with the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act).

Revisions to the California State Implementation Plan, Antelope Valley Air Quality Management District and Ventura
County Air Pollution Control District [FR DOC# 2013-19874] SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the
Antelope Valley Air Quality Management District (AVAQMD) and Ventura County Air Pollution Control District (VCAPCD)
portions of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concern sulfur oxide emissions from lead
smelters and volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions from the data storage and vacuum producing device industries.
We are proposing to rescind local rules that regulate emission sources under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA
or the Act).

National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; National Priorities List: Partial Deletion of the Torch
Lake Superfund Site [FR DOC# 2013-19758] SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 is issuing a
Notice of Intent to Delete the Quincy Smelter and Calumet Lake parcels of OU3 of the Torch Lake Superfund Site (Site),
located in Houghton County, Michigan, 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). EPA with the concurrence of the State of Michigan, through the Michigan
Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), has determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other
than operation, maintenance, and five year reviews, at these identified parcels have been completed. However, this deletion
does not preclude future actions under Superfund. This partial deletion pertains to the surface tailings and slag deposits of
the Quincy Smelter and Calumet Lake parcels of OU3. The following parcels or areas will remain on the NPL and are not
being considered for deletion as part of this action: Dollar Bay, Point Mills, Boston Pond, and North Entry.

 

 

RULES

Heavy-Duty Engine and Vehicle and Nonroad Technical Amendments [FR DOC# 2013-19880] SUMMARY: Because EPA
and NHTSA, on behalf of the Department of Transportation, received adverse comment on certain elements of the Heavy-
Duty Engine and Vehicle and Nonroad Technical Amendments direct final rule published on June 17, 2013, we are
withdrawing those elements of the direct final rule and republishing the affected sections without those elements.

National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; National Priorities List: Partial Deletion of the Torch
Lake Superfund Site [FR DOC# 2013-19759] SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 is
publishing a direct final Notice of Deletion of the Quincy Smelter and Calumet Lake parcels of Operable Unit 3 (OU3) of the
Torch Lake Superfund Site (Site), located in Houghton County, Michigan, 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 partial deletion is being published by EPA with the concurrence of the State of Michigan,
through the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), because EPA has determined that all appropriate
response actions at these identified parcels under CERCLA, other than operation, maintenance, and five-year reviews,
have been completed. However, this partial deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund. This partial deletion
pertains to the surface tailings and slag deposits of the Quincy Smelter and Calumet Lake parcels of OU3. The following
parcels or areas will remain on the NPL and are not being considered for deletion as part of this action: Dollar Bay, Point
Mills, Boston Pond, and North Entry.

Imazapic; Pesticide Tolerances [FR DOC# 2013-19867] SUMMARY: This regulation establishes a tolerance for residues of
imazapic in or on sugarcane, cane. BASF Corporation requested this tolerance under the Federal Food, Drug, and
Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).

Emamectin; Pesticide Tolerance [FR DOC# 2013-19863] SUMMARY: This regulation establishes a tolerance for residues
of emamectin benzoate in or on wine grapes. Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC, requested this tolerance under the Federal
Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). This document also makes a technical correction to the tolerance expression in
the section.

Revisions to California State Implementation Plan, Antelope Valley Air Quality Management District and Ventura County Air
Pollution Control District [FR DOC# 2013-19872] SUMMARY: EPA is taking direct final action to approve revisions to the
Antelope Valley Air Quality Air Management District (AVAQMD) and Ventura County Air Pollution Control District
(VCAPCD) portions of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). Under authority of the Clean Air Act (CAA or the
Act), we are rescinding local rules that concern sulfur oxide emissions from lead smelters for AVAQMD and volatile organic
compounds (VOC) emissions from the data storage for VCAPCD and vacuum producing device industries for VCAPCD.
