Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Notice of tentative approval.
Notice is hereby given that the State of Louisiana is revising its approved Public Water System Supervision Program. Louisiana has revised its variance and exemption regulation and adopted the interim enhanced surface water treatment regulation, the disinfectants/disinfection by-products regulation, and the lead and copper minor revisions regulation. EPA has determined that these revisions are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA intends to approve these program revisions.
All interested parties may request a public hearing. A request for a public hearing must be submitted by April 1, 2005 to the Regional Administrator at the EPA Region 6 address shown below. Frivolous or insubstantial requests for a hearing may be denied by the Regional Administrator. However, if a substantial request for a public hearing is made by April 1, 2005, a public hearing will be held. If no timely and appropriate request for a hearing is received and the Regional Administrator does not elect to hold a hearing on his own motion, this determination shall become final and effective on April 1, 2005. Any request for a public hearing shall include the following information: The name, address, and telephone number of the individual, organization, or other entity requesting a hearing; a brief statement of the requesting person's interest in the Regional Administrator's determination and a brief statement of the information that the requesting person intends to submit at such hearing; and the signature of the individual making the request, or, if the request is made on behalf of an organization or other entity, the signature of a responsible official of the organization or other entity.
