SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Because EPA received adverse comment, we are withdrawing the direct final rule approving the Commonwealth of Kentucky's Underground Injection Control Class II (UIC).

Program for primacy, published on October 28, 2016. We stated in that direct final rule that if we received adverse comment by November 28, 2016, the direct final rule would not take effect and we would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. We subsequently received adverse comment on that direct final rule. We will address those comments in any subsequent final action, which will be based on the parallel proposed rule also published on October 28, 2016 (81 FR 75006). As stated in the direct final rule and the parallel proposed rule, we will not institute a second comment period on this action.
