EPA has set up an electronic mailbox for participants to submit questions prior to the webinar, and EPA will seek to respond during the webinar. However, due to the volume of questions anticipated, EPA may not be able to respond to all questions. Please submit any advance questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “108(b) webinar”. The deadline for submitting advance questions is January 6, 2017. EPA also expects to accept questions during the webinar.
Do not submit comments on the rule to their mailbox. The comment period will begin after publication of the proposed rule in the Federal Register. To ensure EPA considers them, comments on the proposed rule must be submitted in accordance with the instructions provided with the published version of the proposed rule in the Federal Register.
If you have any questions, please contact Linda Barr or by phone (703)605-0768.
