Public Water Supply Supervision Program; Program Revision for the State of
Oregon [FR DOC# 2013-17266] SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the State
of Oregon has revised its approved State Public Water Supply Supervision
Primacy Program. Oregon has adopted regulations analogous to EPA’s Stage 2
Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule; Long Term 2 Enhanced
Surface Water Treatment Rule; Ground Water Rule; and Lead and Copper
Short-Term Regulatory Revisions and Clarifications Rule and has adopted
revisions to their Variance regulation. EPA has determined that these
revisions are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations.
Therefore, EPA intends to approve these State program revisions. By
approving these rules, EPA does not intend to affect the rights of
federally recognized Indian tribes within “Indian country” as defined by
18 U.S.C. 1151, nor does it intend to limit existing rights of the State of
Oregon.
PROPOSED RULES

Revision to the Washington State Implementation Plan; Approval of Motor
Vehicle Emission Budgets and Determination of Attainment for the 2006 24-
Hour Fine Particulate Standard; Tacoma-Pierce County Nonattainment Area [FR
DOC# 2013-17267] SUMMARY: The EPA is proposing to approve a request
submitted by the Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) dated November
28, 2012, to establish motor vehicle emission budgets for the Tacoma-Pierce
County Fine Particulate Matter (PM<INF>2.5</INF>) nonattainment area to
meet transportation conformity requirements. Under the Clean Air Act (CAA),
new transportation plans, programs, and projects, such as the construction
of new highways, must “conform” to (i.e., be consistent with) the State
Implementation Plan (SIP). The CAA requires federal actions in
nonattainment and maintenance areas to “conform to” the goals of SIP.
This means that such actions will not cause or contribute to violations of
the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), worsen the severity of
an existing violation, or delay timely attainment of any NAAQS or any
interim milestone. Under the Transportation Conformity Rule, the EPA can
approve motor vehicle emission budgets based on the most recent year of
clean data if the EPA approves the request in the rulemaking that
determines that the area has attained the NAAQS for which the area is
designated nonattainment. In September 2012, the EPA finalized an
attainment finding for the Tacoma-Pierce County PM<INF>2.5</INF>
nonattainment area (hereafter referred to as “Tacoma-Pierce County Area”
or “the area”). This finding, also called a clean data determination, was
based upon quality-assured, quality-controlled, and certified ambient air
monitoring data showing that the area had monitored attainment of the 2006
PM<INF>2.5</INF> NAAQS based on the 2009-2011 data available in the EPA’s
Air Quality System database. This action proposes to update the previous
finding of attainment with more recent 2010-2012 data and proposes to
approve motor vehicle emission budgets under the Transportation Conformity
Rule.

Community Right-to-Know; Adoption of 2012 North American Industry
Classification System (NAICS) Codes for Toxics Release Inventory (TRI)
Reporting [FR DOC# 2013-17297] SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to update the list
of North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes subject to
reporting under the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) to reflect the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) 2012 NAICS revision. Facilities would be
required to use 2012 NAICS codes when reporting to TRI beginning with TRI
reporting forms that are due on July 1, 2014, covering releases and other
waste management quantities for the 2013 calendar year. In the “Rules and
Regulations” section of today’s Federal Register, we are simultaneously
publishing the 2012 OMB NAICS revisions for TRI Reporting as a direct final
rule without a prior proposed rule. If we receive no adverse comment, we
will not take further action on this proposed rule. We will withdraw this
proposed rule, and the direct final rule will become effective as specified
in that rule. If, however, we do receive adverse comment in response to
this proposed rule or in response to the direct final rule, then we will
publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public
that the direct final rule will not take effect. In that case, we would
address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this
proposed rule. We will not institute a second comment period on this
action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. For
further information about commenting on this rule, see the ADDRESSES
section of this document.
