ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 281

[FRL 6427-3]

 
North Carolina; Approval of State Underground Storage Tank 
Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of tentative determination on application of State of 
North Carolina for final approval, public hearing and public comment 
period--correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The State of North Carolina has applied for approval of its 
underground storage tank program for petroleum and hazardous substances 
under subtitle I of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). 
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reviewed the North Carolina 
application and has made the tentative decision that the North Carolina 
underground storage tank program for petroleum and hazardous substances 
satisfies all of the requirements necessary to qualify for approval. 
The Federal Register document announcing EPA's tentative decision and 
requesting public comment was published in August 10, 1999 (64 FR 
43336-43338). In that Federal Register document the date for EPA to 
determine if there is sufficient interest to hold a public hearing, and 
for the public to contact EPA to find out if a public hearing would be 
held, was incorrectly listed. The correct information should read: EPA 
will determine by September 10, 1999, whether there is sufficient 
interest to hold the public hearing. Anyone who wishes to learn whether 
or not the public hearing on the State's application has been canceled 
should telephone the contact listed under the heading FOR FURTHER 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.


DATES: Written comments on the North Carolina program approval 
application, as well as requests to present oral testimony, must be 
received by the close of business September 9, 1999. A public hearing 
is scheduled for September 13, 1999, unless insufficient public 
interest is expressed in holding a hearing. EPA reserves the right to 
cancel the public hearing if sufficient public interest is not 
communicated to EPA in writing by September 9, 1999. EPA will determine 
by September 10, 1999, whether there is significant interest to hold 
the public hearing. The State of North Carolina will participate in the 
public hearing held by EPA on this subject.

of Underground Storage Tank Section, U.S. EPA Region 4, 61 Forsyth
