SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

    This notice announces the first meeting of the Federal Advisory
Committee on Detection and Quantitation Procedures and Uses in Clean
Water Act Programs. The establishment of this committee was announced
in a Federal Register notice published on July 13, 2005 (70 FR 25565.)
The purpose of the committee is to evaluate and recommend detection and
quantitation procedures for use in EPA's analytical methods programs
for compliance monitoring under 40 CFR part 136. The committee will
analyze and evaluate relevant scientific and statistical approaches,
and protocols. The committee also will review data and interpretations
of data using current and recommended approaches. The major objectives
are to provide advice and recommendations to the EPA Administrator on
policy issues related to detection and quantitation, and scientific and
technical aspects of procedures for detection and quantitation.
Proposed agenda items for the meeting include, but are not limited to,
discussion of ground rules; process design; statements of interest by
committee members; establishing a common base of information and
identification of key policy questions; discussion of possible
alternatives to current detection and quantitation procedures; and
composition of a Technical Work Group to assist the committee. This
meeting is open to the public.

Information on Services for Individuals With Disabilities

    For information on access or services for individuals with
disabilities, please contact Ms. Marion Kelly at (202) 566-1045 or e-
mail: <A HREF="mailto:[log in to unmask]">[log in to unmask]</A> to
request accommodation of a disability, at
least ten days prior to the meeting so that appropriate arrangements
can be made to facilitate their participation.
A. How Can I Get Copies of Related Information?
    1. Docket. EPA has established an official public docket for this
committee under Docket ID NO. OW-2004-0041. The official public docket
consists of the documents specifically referenced in this action, any
public comments received, and other information related to this action.
Documents in the official public docket are listed in the index in
EPA's electronic public docket and comment system, EDOCKET. Documents
are available either electronically or in hard copy. Electronic
documents may be viewed through EDOCKET. Hard copies of the draft
agendas may be viewed at the EPA Docket Center (EPA/DC), EPA West, Room
B102, 1301 Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC. The EPA Docket
Center Public Reading Room is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday
through Friday, excluding legal holidays. The telephone number for the
Public Reading Room is (202) 566-1744, and the telephone number for the
OW Docket is (202) 566-2426.
    2. Electronic Access. You may access this Federal Register document
electronically through the EPA Internet under the Federal Register
listings at <A
HREF="http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/">http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/</A>. An
electronic version of the
public docket is available through EDOCKET. You may use EDOCKET at
<A HREF="http://www.epa.gov/edocket/">http://www.epa.gov/edocket/</A> to
submit or view public comments, access
the index listing of the contents of the official public docket, and to
access those documents in the public docket that are available
electronically. Once in the system, select ``search,'' then key in the
appropriate docket identification number (OW-2004-0041).
    For public commenters, it is important to note that EPA's policy is
that comments, whether submitted electronically or on paper, will be
made available for public viewing in EPA's electronic public docket as
EPA receives them and without change, unless the comment contains
copyrighted material, confidential business information (CBI), or other
information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. When EPA
identifies a comment containing copyrighted material, EPA will provide
a reference to that material in the version of the comment that is
placed in EPA's electronic public docket. The entire printed comment,
including the copyrighted material, will be available in the public
docket.
    Public comments submitted on computer disks mailed or delivered to
the docket will be transferred to EPA's electronic public docket.
Written public comments mailed or delivered to the Docket will be
scanned and placed in EPA's electronic public docket.
B. How and To Whom Do I Submit Comments?
    You may submit comments electronically, by mail, or through hand
delivery/courier. To ensure proper receipt by EPA, identify the
appropriate docket identification number (OW-2004-0041) in the subject
line on the first page of your comment. Please ensure that your
comments are submitted within the specified comment period.
    1. Electronically. If you submit an electronic comment as
prescribed below, EPA recommends that you include your name, mailing
address, and an e-mail address or other contact information in the body
of your comment. Also include this contact information on the outside
of any disk or CD ROM you submit, and in any cover letter accompanying
the disk or CD ROM. This ensures that you can be identified as the
submitter of the comment, and it allows EPA to contact you if further
information on the substance of the comment is needed or if your
comment cannot be read due to technical difficulties. EPA's policy is
that EPA will not edit your comment, and any identifying or contact
information provided in the body of a comment will be included as part
of the comment placed in the official public docket and made available
in EPA's electronic public docket. 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.
    i. EDOCKET. Your use of EPA's electronic public docket to submit
comments to EPA electronically is EPA's preferred method for receiving
comments. Go directly to EDOCKET at <A
HREF="http://www.epa.gov/edocket/">http://www.epa.gov/edocket/</A>, and
follow the online instructions for submitting comments. To access EPA's
electronic public docket from the EPA Internet home page, <A
HREF="http://www.epa.gov">
http://www.epa.gov</A>,

[[Page 29745]]

select ``Information Sources,'' ``Dockets,'' and ``EDOCKET.'' Once in
the system, select ``search,'' and then key in Docket ID No. OW-2004-
0041. The system is an anonymous access system, which means EPA will
not know your identity, e-mail address, or other contact information
unless you provide it in the body of your comment.
    ii. E-mail. Comments may be sent by electronic mail (e-mail) to <A
HREF="mailto:[log in to unmask]">
[log in to unmask]</A>, Attention Docket ID No. OW-2004-0041. In contrast
to
EPA's electronic public docket, EPA's e-mail system is not an anonymous
access system. If you send an e-mail comment directly to the docket
without going through EPA's electronic public docket, EPA's e-mail
system automatically captures your e-mail address. E-mail addresses
that are automatically captured by EPA's e-mail system are included as
part of the comment that is placed in the official public docket, and
made available in EPA's electronic public docket.
    iii. Disk or CD ROM. You may submit comments on a disk or CD ROM
mailed to the mailing address identified in section I.B.2 of this
notice. These electronic submissions will be accepted in Word,
WordPerfect or rich text files. Avoid the use of special characters and
any form of encryption.
    2. By Mail. Send your comments to: U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency, OW Docket, EPA Docket Center (EPA/DC), Mailcode: 28221T, 1200
Pennsylvania Ave., NW., Washington, DC, 20460, Attention Docket ID No.
OW-2004-0041.
    3. By Hand Delivery or Courier. Deliver your comments to: EPA
Docket Center (EPA/DC), Room B102, EPA West Building, 1301 Constitution
Avenue, NW., Washington, DC, Attention Docket ID No. OW-2004-0041
(note: this is not a mailing address). Such deliveries are only
accepted during the docket's normal hours of operation as identified in
section I.A.1 of this notice.

    Dated: May 18, 2005.
Richard Reding,
Designated Federal Officer.
