(a) After receipt of a notice of intent to rescind, the State may request that an informal
conference be held between appropriate State and EPA officials to discuss the findings
made in the notice of intent to rescind. The informal conference shall then be held in the State. If the Administrator finds, on the basis of information submitted by the State at
the conference, that the deficiencies specified in the notice did not exist or were
corrected by the State, the Administrator shall issue an order withdrawing the notice
of intent to rescind and terminating the rescission proceeding.
(b) At any time after receipt of a notice of intent to rescind and before the issuance
of a final order, the State and EPA may resolve the issues raised in the notice by
agreement. Any settlement agreement shall be in writing and signed by the parties and shall:
(1) Detail the deficiencies found in the State program;
(2) Specify the steps the State has taken or will take to remedy the deficiencies; and
(3) Set forth a precise schedule for each remedial action yet to be initiated.
(c) If a written agreement is signed by the parties, the Administrator shall issue an
order withdrawing the notice of intent to rescind and terminating the rescission proceeding. If the State does not comply with the terms of the settlement agreement, the Administrator
may reissue the notice of intent to rescind.
