Withdrawal of proposed rule.


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is withdrawing its proposed rule to grant a petition submitted by Teris, LLC to exclude (or delist) a certain incineration ash generated by its El Dorado, AR Plant from the lists of hazardous wastes in the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. This notice removes the proposed rule published in 68 FR 55206 (September 23, 2003) for public review and comment. Several comments were received on this proposed rule, which highlighted gaps in the data presented by EPA. The Agency acknowledges these deficiencies. Teris withdrew its petition until such time as these deficiencies can be addressed. No further action on the proposed rule will be taken.
