Title: NSPS Subpart OOO, Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources, Nonmetallic Minerals Processing, OMB Control Number 2060-0050, EPA ICR No. 1084.06, expiration date 6/30/00. This is a request for extension of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: This standard applies to owners or operators of new, modified, or reconstructed facilities at nonmetallic mineral processing plants that commenced construction, modification, or reconstruction after August 1, 1985. Nonmetallic mineral processing includes the following affected facilities: each crusher, grinding mill, screening operation, bucket elevator, belt conveyor, bagging operation, storage bin, and enclosed truck or railcar loading station. Affected facilities in the plant process that are subject to 40 CFR part 60, subpart F for Portland Cement NSPS, or subpart I, Asphalt Concrete Plants NSPS, are not subject to this NSPS, subpart OOO.

Respondents must submit the following one-time-only reports: notification of the date of construction or reconstruction, notification of the actual date of initial startup, notification of any physical or operational change to an existing facility which may increase the regulated pollutant emission rate, notification of demonstration of the continuous emission monitor system (CMS) where the CMS is required (wet scrubber), notification of the date of the initial performance test, and the results of the initial performance test.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR Chapter 15.
