Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Withdrawal of direct final rule.
On November 19, 2004, the Environmental Protection Agency published a direct final rule to grant a Start Printed Page 76864site-specific treatment standard variance from the Land Disposal Restrictions (LDR) treatment standards to Chemical Waste Management, Chemical Services LLC (CWM) in Model City, New York. EPA also published an accompanying proposed rule to supplant this rule in the event EPA received any adverse comment on the direct final rule. This variance is for a selenium-bearing hazardous waste generated by Guardian Industries Corp. (Guardian), a glass manufacturing company. EPA has received a comment on this treatment variance that it deems adverse, and is withdrawing the direct final rule. Therefore, this site-specific treatment standard variance will not take effect on January 3, 2005 and CWM cannot treat the Guardian waste under a treatment standard variance. EPA will review and address all the comments received on this variance and will decide what action to take in a future Federal Register document. We will not institute a second comment period on this action.Start Further Info

On November 19, 2004, EPA published a direct final rule (69 FR 67647) and a notice of proposed rulemaking (69 FR 67695) promulgating and proposing, respectively, amendments to grant a site-specific treatment standard variance from the Land Disposal Restrictions (LDR) treatment standards for a selenium-bearing hazardous waste to Chemical Waste Management, Chemical Services LLC. EPA indicated that it was promulgating this site-specific treatment variance as a direct final rule because it believed this action to be non-controversial. However, the Agency further stated that if it received any adverse comments by December 20, 2004 on the direct final rule, it would publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule in the Federal Register, and address the adverse comments and determine what action to take in a future Federal Register document.Start List of Subjects
