SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the “Rules and Regulations” section of this Federal Register, the EPA is correcting the currently codified coordinates for Site F at 40 CFR 228.15(n)(3) with the coordinates EPA inadvertently, through a typographical error, named 40 CFR 228.15(n)(4) at 71 FR 27396 (May 11, 2006). The EPA is also restoring the coordinates for Site H at 40 CFR 228.15(n)(4) which were overwritten through the EPA's typographical error. The EPA did not make a proposal prior to the direct final rule because we believe these actions are not controversial and do not expect comments that oppose them. We have explained the reasons for this action in the preamble to the direct final rule. Unless we get written comments which oppose this action during the comment period, the direct final rule will become effective on the date established in the preamble to the direct final rule, and we will not take further action on this proposal. If we get comments that oppose this action, we will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. We will then respond to public comments in a later final rule based on this proposal. You may not have another opportunity for comment. If you want to comment on this action, you must do so at this time. For additional information, please see the direct final rule published in the “Rules and Regulations” section of this Federal Register.
