Dear Mr. Davis:

Re: Registration Decision for a Major Change in Labeling to Aquathol K Aquatic Herbicide,
    EPA Reg. No. 481-204 and Aquathol K Granular Aquatic Herbicide, EPA Reg. No. 4581-201

  We have received your May 12, 1997 letter relating to our October 22, 1996 decision to
deny your application to remove the 24-hour swimming restriction from the Aquathol K
labels. In your letter you provide a rebuttal of the denial and submit new data on the
eye irritation of Aquathol K.

  In our October 22, 1996 letter, we informed you of your options under the New  York State
Environmental Conservation Law. Section 33-0711 provides for a thirty days period from
receipt of the denial letter during which you may respond. Since you did not respond within
the time period, the denial became effective. Therefore a new application and fee are
required. The removal of the swimming restriction still constitutes a Major Change in
Labeling (MCL).

  When the application has been received, we will review the information submitted. If you
have any questions, please contact Frank Hegener of this office at (518)457-7446.

Sincerely,

Maureen P. Serafini
