SUMMARY:

On Thursday, January 4, 2007, the Environmental Protection Agency published a proposed rule entitled “NPDES Permit Fee Incentive for Clean Water Act Section 106 Grants; Allotment Formula.” Written comments on the proposed rulemaking were required to be submitted to EPA on or before March 5, 2007, (a 60-day public comment period). EPA has received several requests for additional time to submit comments on the proposed rule. Therefore, the public comment period is being reopened for an additional 60-day comment period.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before May 14, 2007.

Instructions: Direct your comments to Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OW-2006-0765. EPA's policy is that all comments received will be included in the public docket without change and may be made available online at http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information provided, unless the comment includes information claimed to be Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Do not submit information that you consider to be CBI or otherwise protected through www.regulations.gov or e-mail. The www.regulations.gov Web site is an “anonymous access” system, which means EPA will not know your identity or contact information unless you provide it in the body of your comment. If you send an e-mail comment directly to EPA without going through www.regulations.gov, your e-mail address will be automatically captured and included as part of the comment that is placed in the public docket and made available on the Internet. If you submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that you include your name and other contact information in the body of your comment and with any disk or CD-ROM you submit. If EPA cannot read your comment due to technical difficulties and cannot contact you for clarification, EPA may not be able to consider your comment. Electronic files should avoid the use of special characters, any form of encryption, and be free of any defects or viruses.
