SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

Title: Standards of Performance for Storage Vessels for Petroleum Liquids for Which Construction, Reconstruction, or Modification Commenced After May 18, 1978 and Prior to July 23, 1984, EPA ICR Number 1050.07 and OMB Control Number 2060-0121 expiring on June 30, 2001. This is a request for extension of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from storage vessels cause or contribute to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health. VOC emissions are the result of evaporation of volatile organic liquids contained in the storage vessels. The control of VOCs requires not only the installation of properly designed equipment, but also the maintenance and operation of that equipment. Information generated by the recordkeeping and reporting requirements is used by the Agency to ensure that facilities affected by this New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) continue to operate the control equipment properly, thereby minimizing VOCs emissions into the atmosphere. Responses to the collection of information are required to assure the control equipment is operated and maintained properly. 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. The Federal Register document required under 5 CFR 1320.8(d), soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on December 22, 2000, 65 FR 80854; no comments were received.

Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and record keeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 75 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

Respondents/Affected Entities: Predominately Petroleum Synthetic Organic Manufacturing.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 157.

Frequency of Response: Annually and varies.

Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 39,139.

Estimated Total Annualized Capital, O&M Cost Burden: 0.

Send comments on the Agency's need for this information, the accuracy of the provided burden estimates, and any suggested methods for minimizing respondent burden, including through the use of automated collection techniques to the addresses listed above. Please refer to EPA ICR Number 1050.07 and OMB Control Number 2060-0121 in any correspondence.
