SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

For All ICRs

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

The EPA would like to solicit comments to:

(i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;

(ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information;

(iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and

(iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who respond through the use of automated, electronic, mechanical, or other forms of information technology.

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.

In the absence of such information collection requirements, enforcement personnel would be unable to determine whether the standards are being met on a continuous basis, as required by the Clean Air Act. Consequently, these information collection requirements are mandatory, and the records required by New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and Federal Plan Requirements (FPR) must be retained by the owner or operator for at least two years; records required by the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) must be retained by the owner or operator for at least five years; and the records required by the NESHAP Maximum Achievable Control Technology standards (NESHAP-MACT) must be retained by the owner or operator for at least five years. In general, the required information consists of emissions data and other information deemed not to be private. However, any information submitted to the Agency for which a claim of confidentiality is made will be safeguarded according to the Agency policies set forth in Title 40, Chapter 1, part 2, subpart B—Confidentiality of Business Information (See 40 CFR part 2; 41 FR 36902, September 1, 1976; amended by 43 FR 39999, September 8, 1978; 43 FR 42251, September 28, 1978; 44 FR 17674, March 2, 1979).

The Agency computed the burden for each of the recordkeeping and reporting requirements applicable to the industry for the currently approved ICRs. Where applicable, the Agency identified specific tasks and made assumptions, while being consistent with the concept of the Paper Work Reduction Act.

Section C: Summaries of Individual ICRs

(1) NSPS subpart HH: NSPS for Lime Manufacturing (40 CFR part 60, subpart HH); EPA ICR Number 1167.07; OMB Control Number 2060-0063; expiration date January 31, 2003.

Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are rotary lime kilns located at lime manufacturing plants subject to the standards at 40 CFR part 60, subpart HH for which construction, modification, or reconstruction commenced after May 3, 1977.

Abstract: The Administrator has determined that particulate matter from lime manufacturing cause, or contribute significantly to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. Owners and operators of the affected facilities described must make the following one-time-only reports: Notification of the date of construction or reconstruction; notification of the anticipated and actual startup dates; notification of any physical or operational changes to an existing facility which may increase the regulated pollutant emission rate; notification of the demonstration of the continuous monitoring system (CMS); notification of the date of the initial performance test; and the results of the initial performance test.

Owners and operators are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative.

Owners and operators of rotary kilns using a control device with multiple stack exhaust or roof monitor may instead monitor visible emissions at least once a day by a certified observer using EPA Method 9. Owners or operators of affected facilities using a wet scrubber emission control device shall install, calibrate, maintain, and operate a continuous monitoring device which monitors the pressure loss of the gas stream through the scrubber, and a continuous monitoring device which monitors the scrubbing liquid supply pressure to the control device.

Semiannual excess emissions reports and monitoring system performance reports shall include all six-minute periods during which the average opacity of the visible emissions from any lime kiln is greater than 15% or for wet scrubbers, any period in which the scrubber pressure drop is greater than 30% below the rate established during the performance test, and reports of the visible emissions; the date and time of Start Printed Page 41984the exceedance or deviance; the nature and the cause of the malfunction and corrective measures taken; and identification of the time period during which the CMS was inoperative.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was 49 with 102 responses per year. The annual industry reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information was 4,190 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately two times per year and 41 hours were spent preparing each response. The total annual reporting and recordkeeping cost burden for this collection of information was $95,000. This included an annual cost of $22,000 associated with capital/startup costs and $73,000 associated with the annual operation and maintenance costs.

(2) NSPS subpart I: NSPS for Hot Mix Asphalt Facilities (40 CFR part 60, subpart I); EPA ICR Number 1127.07; OMB Control Number 2060-0083; expiration date January 31, 2003.

Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are hot mix asphalt facilities subject to 40 CFR part 60, subpart I and include the following processes: Dryers; systems for screening, handling, storing, and weighing hot aggregate; systems for loading, transferring, and storing mineral filler; systems for mixing hot asphalt; and the loading, transfer and storage systems associated with emission control systems which commenced construction, modification, or reconstruction after June 11, 1973.

Abstract: The Agency has determined that particulate matter from lime manufacturing causes, or contributes significantly to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. Owners or operators of the affected facilities described must make the following one-time-only reports: notification of the date of construction or reconstruction; notification of the anticipated and actual date of the startup; notification of any physical or operational change to an existing facility which may increase the regulated pollutant emission rate; and notification of the date of the initial performance test including information necessary to determine the conditions of the performance test measurements and results, such as particulate matter concentration and opacity. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility as well as the nature and cause of the malfunction and corrective measures taken.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was estimated to be 3,290 with 200 responses per year. The annual recordkeeping and reporting hour burden for this collection was estimated to be 6,890 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately 0.06 times per year and 34 hours were spent preparing each response. There are no capital/startup costs or operation and maintenance costs associated with continuous emission monitoring in the previous ICR; therefore, there are no capital, or operation and maintenance costs associated with this ICR.

(3) NSPS subpart Ce: Emission Guidelines for Hospital/Medical/Infectious Waste Incinerators (40 CFR part 60, subpart Ce); EPA ICR Number 1899.02; OMB Control Number 2060-0422; expiration date January 31, 2003.

Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are owners and operators of hospital/medical/infectious waste incinerators (HMIWI) for which construction commenced before June 20, 1996 and States and Tribes who develop State or Tribal plans to implement the Emission Guidelines.

Abstract: The Agency has determined that particulate matter, carbon monoxide, dioxins/furans, and mercury from hospital/medical/infectious waste incinerators cause or contribute to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare.

The Emission Guidelines contain monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements that are to be included in State or Tribal plans. These requirements differ for HMIWI burning hospital waste and/or medical/infectious waste; for combustors co-firing hospital waste and/or medical/infectious waste with other fuels; and for incinerators burning only pathological, low-level radioactive, and/or chemotherapeutic waste.

Owners and operators of HMIWI are required to submit one-time-only increments of progress reports showing progress toward meeting the new emissions limitations. Owners and operators of HMIWI are also required to submit annual and semiannual compliance reports on a variety of site-specific operating parameters malfunction episodes, exceedances, and performance tests. For small rural HMIWI, an annual report containing information recorded during the annual equipment inspection is also required. Owners and operators of co-fired combustors are required to provide the Administrator with notification reports on an exemption claim and report and maintain records on the weight of hospital waste and medical/infectious, and other fuels and/or wastes to be combusted. Owners and operators of incinerators burning only pathological, low-level radioactive, and/or chemotherapeutic waste are required to provide notification reports to Administrator of an exemption claim.

The information will be used by the appropriate State, Tribal or EPA enforcement official to ensure that the requirements of the State, Tribal, or Federal Plan are being implemented on a continuous basis through proper operation and maintenance of the emission control device. In addition, certain records and reports are necessary to enable the Administrator to identify an HMIWI that may not be in compliance with the standards.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was 537 with 1,146 responses per year. The annual industry reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information was 133,404 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately 2.1 times per year and 116 hours were spent preparing each response. There are no capital/startup costs or operations and maintenance costs associated with continuous emission monitoring in the previous ICR; therefore, there are no capital, or operation and maintenance costs associated with this ICR.

(4) NSPS subpart DD: New Source Performance Standards for Grain Elevators (40 CFR part 60, subpart DD); EPA ICR Number 1130.07; OMB Control Number 2060-0082, expiration date January 31, 2003.

Affected Entities: Potentially affected facilities include each truck unloading station, truck loading station, barge and ship unloading station, barge and ship loading station, railcar unloading station, railcar loading station, grain dryer, and all grain handling operations at any grain terminal elevator or any grain storage elevator.

The standards require owners or operators of the affected facilities to make the following one-time-only reports: Notification of the date of construction or reconstruction; notification of the actual date of startup; notification of any physical or operational change to an existing facility that may increase the rate of emission of the regulated pollutant; notification of the date of the initial performance test; and the results of the initial performance test. Records must be maintained of the occurrence and Start Printed Page 41985duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, as well as the nature and cause of the malfunction and corrective measures taken.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was 121 with 121 responses per year. The annual industry reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information was 250 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately two times per year and two hours were spent preparing each response. There are no capital/startup costs or operations and maintenance costs associated with continuous emission monitoring in the previous ICR; therefore, there are no capital, or operation and maintenance costs associated with this ICR.

(5) NSPS subpart EE: NSPS for Metal Furniture Coating (40 CFR part 60, subpart EE); EPA ICR Number 0649.08; OMB Control Number 2060-0106; expiration date January 31, 2003.

Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are each metal furniture surface coating operation in which organic coatings are applied. These standards apply to surface coating facilities for which construction, modification or reconstruction commenced after the date of proposal, November 28, 1980. A surface coating operation includes the coating application station(s), flash-off area, and curing oven.

Abstract: The Agency has determined that the emissions from surface coating operations cause, or contribute significantly to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. Volatile organic compounds (VOC) are the pollutants regulated under this rule. Owners and operators of the affected facilities described must make the following one-time only reports: notification of the date of construction or reconstruction; notification of the anticipated and actual dates of a startup; notification of any physical or operational change to an existing facility which may increase the regulated pollutant emission rate; notification of the date of the initial performance test; and results of the initial performance test. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative.

Recordkeeping and reporting requirements include the performance test results including the type of coating used, and the VOC content. The rule requires daily records of temperature if thermal incineration is used. For catalytic incineration, daily records of gas stream temperature both upstream and downstream are required, or a daily record of the quantity of solvent recovered if a solvent recovery device is used. Monthly averages are calculated, and any affected facility shall report quarterly on any excess emissions, or semiannually if no excess emissions occur. Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of the rule, shall maintain at the source, for a period of at least two years, records of all data calculations used to determine monthly VOC emissions from each affected facility and to determine the monthly emissions limit, where applicable.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was 553 with 1,600 responses per year. The annual industry reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information was 101,070 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately 2.9 times per year and 63 hours were spent preparing each response. The total annual reporting and recordkeeping cost burden for this collection of information was $1,120,000.

(10) NESHAP subpart FF: NESHAP for Benzene Emissions for Benzene Waste Operations (40 CFR part 61, subpart FF); EPA ICR Number 1541.07; OMB Number 2060-0183; expiration date February 28, 2003.

Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are benzene waste operations such as chemical manufacturing plants, coke by-product recovery plants, and petroleum refineries. Other affected entities are those owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSD) which receive wastes from the above facilities.

Abstract: The Agency has determined that the emissions from benzene waste operations cause, or contribute significantly to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. The provisions of this subpart apply to owners and operators of chemical manufacturing plants, coke by-product recovery plants, and petroleum refineries. In addition, this standard applies to owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities that treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste generated from the above facilities.

The calculation of total annual benzene (TAB) quantity in all aqueous waste streams determines whether a facility is subject to control requirements of the standard. A facility at or above the TAB threshold in the rule of 10 megagrams per year (Mg/yr) is required to control each benzene waste stream at the facility or demonstrate that the waste stream meets a criterion in the rule for exemption from control. A facility with a TAB below 10 Mg/yr is only subject to the rule's reporting and recordkeeping provisions, unless the facility receives a waste from offsite that must be controlled to meet the standards in which case that waste must be controlled. A facility with a TAB less than 1 Mg/yr is only subject to maintain documentation of the quantity of benzene in the waste.

Owners or operators of the affected facilities described above must make the following one-time-only notices or reports: notifications of anticipated and actual startup; notification of emission test, report following an emission test; notification of any physical/operational changes that could increase emissions, a monitoring system performance test; and certain reports regarding the monitoring system performance test(s).

Recordkeeping requirements for benzene waste operations include maintaining records that identify each waste stream at the facility subject to this subpart, and indicate whether the waste stream is controlled for benzene emissions in accordance with this standard. In addition the owner or operator must maintain the records: (1) For each waste stream not controlled for benzene emissions, (2) for each process wastewater stream not controlled for benzene emissions, (3) for each facility where process wastewater streams are controlled for benzene emissions, (4) for each facility where wastewater streams are controlled for benzene emissions. Owners or operators transferring waste offsite to another facility for treatment shall maintain documentation for each offsite waste shipment, and engineering design documentation for all control equipment installed on the waste management unit. The documentation shall be retained for the life of the control equipment.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was 240 with 240 responses per year. The annual industry reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information was 17,028 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately one time per year and 71 hours were spent preparing each response. There are no capital/startup costs or operations and maintenance costs associated with continuous emission monitoring in the previous ICR; therefore, there are no capital, or operation and maintenance costs associated with this ICR.

(11) NSPS subpart AAAA: Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements for the New Source Performance Standards for Small Municipal Waste Combustors (40 CFR part 60, subpart AAAA) EPA ICR 1900.02; OMB Control Number 2060-0423; expiration date February 28, 2003.

Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are owners or operators of small municipal waste combustors (MWC) units with capacities greater than 35 tons per day, but less than 250 tons per day for which commenced construction after August 30, 1999, or commenced modification, or reconstruction after June 6, 2001.

Abstract: The Agency has determined that the emissions from small municipal waste combustors cause, or contribute significantly to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. Small MWCs emit toxic organics, metals, acid gases, carbon monoxide and fugitive ash owners. Owners or operators must conduct initial compliance tests and compliance demonstrations for all pollutants, operating parameters, and continuous monitoring systems. Annual performance tests and continuous monitoring systems (CEMS) for certain pollutants and operating parameters is also required. Owners or operators of small MWC units must submit an initial compliance report for all regulated pollutants and parameters. Once a year, owners or operators must submit an annual report that indicates the highest emission level determined during the annual test or recorded using the CEMS for all regulated pollutants. The report must also include the lowest calculated hourly carbon feed rate.

If the emission level recorded for any of these pollutants is above the emission limit for the pollutant, or if any operating parameter is outside a specified range, then the owner or operator is required to submit a semiannual report for the calendar half during which the test was conducted or data was collected. The standards include provisions that would allow less frequent reporting if certain criteria are met.

Owners or operators of small MWC units are required to keep records of certain parameters, and maintain records of employees names and dates of their initial and annual review of the site-specific operating manual parameters. Records of continuous measurements of MWC unit load, the particulate matter control device temperature, and computation of average emissions and operating parameters, as well as opacity measurements are required. Owners or Start Printed Page 41988operators are also required to maintain records that identify the date, operating parameters, and opacity level exceedances, with reasons and a description of corrective action. Owners or operators are required to keep records of results of daily sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and carbon monoxide, CEMS drift tests, and quarterly accuracy assessments. Owners or operators are required to maintain records of initial performance tests and all annual performance retests for compliance with particulate matter, dioxins/furans, hydrochloric acid (HCl), cadmium, lead, and mercury limits. Owners or operators also maintain records of periodic testing for fugitive ash emissions.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was 3 with 6 responses per year. The annual industry reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information was 8,559 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately two times per year and 1,427 hours were spent preparing each response. The total annual reporting and recordkeeping cost burden for this collection of information was $219,000. This included an annual cost of $200,000 associated with capital/startup costs and $19,000 associated with the annual operation and maintenance costs.

(12) NSPS subpart BBBB: Emission Guidelines Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements for Existing Small Municipal Waste Combustion (MWC) Units (40 CFR part 60, subpart BBBB); EPA ICR Number 1901.02; OMB Control Number 2060-0424; expiration date February 28, 2003.

Affected Entities: Respondents are owners or operators of existing small MWC units. Small MWC units are units with capacities to combust greater than 35 tons per day and less than 250 tons per day of municipal solid waste.

Abstract: The Agency has determined that the emissions from small municipal waste combustion units, cause or contribute significantly to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. Owners and operators of MWCs that have retrofit schedules longer than one year are required to submit reports or notifications documenting increments of progress.

Owners or operators are required to conduct initial compliance tests and compliance demonstrations for all pollutants and parameters, as well as continuous monitoring or annual retests of all pollutants and parameters, unless the owner or operator qualifies for less frequent dioxin/furan testing. As a means of determining continuous compliance for mercury and dioxin/furan, owners or operators are required to keep records of the quarterly amount of activated carbon injected, and to calculate the average carbon injection rate for each hour of operation.

Owners or operators of small MWC units are required to submit an initial compliance report for all regulated pollutants and parameters. Once a year, owners or operators of small MWC units are required to submit an annual report for all regulated pollutants and parameters that summarizes data collected for all pollutants and parameters regulated under the standard. Owners or operators are required to submit an annual report that indicates the highest emission level determined during the annual test, or recorded using continuous emissions monitoring systems, load level, control device inlet temperature, and opacity. If the emission level recorded for any of these pollutants shows emissions above the emission limit for the pollutant, or a calculated carbon injection rate below the carbon injection rate established during the mercury or dioxin/furan annual retest, then the owner or operator is required to submit a semiannual report for the calendar half during which the test was conducted or data were collected, and the report is required to include the supporting data or test report and an explanation for the exceedances. Owners or operators are not required to submit test reports, or raw CEMS data unless a pollutant or parameter is recorded as exceeding the emission limit for the pollutant or parameter.

If three annual compliance tests in a row indicate compliance with the particulate matter (PM), dioxin/furan, hydrochloric acid (HCl), cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb), and/or mercury (Hg) emission limits, then owners or operators of small MWC units (where the aggregate plant capacity is less than 250 tons per year) may skip the annual performance test for that particular pollutant for the next two years. If the next test after skipping two years shows compliance, another two-year period may be skipped. At a minimum, performance tests for PM, dioxins/furans, HCl, Cd, Pb, and Hg are required by small MWC plants every 3 years. In all cases, annual tests for opacity and fly ash/bottom ash fugitive emissions are required and may not be skipped. In addition, a provision for less frequent dioxin/furan testing allows plants to test only one unit per year rather than all units, as is normally required, if all units at the plant achieve emission levels significantly lower than the emission limit for two consecutive years. It is believed that most units will qualify for this option.

Under the standards, owners or operators of affected units are required to keep records of the following information: (1) Employees names and dates of their initial and annual review of the site-specific operating manual; (2) emission rates and CEMS parameters for nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxides, carbon monoxide, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and opacity; (3) continuous measurements of small MWC unit load and PM control device temperature, and computation of average emissions and operating parameters; (4) the date and operating parameters of any opacity level exceedances, with reasons and a description of corrective action; (5) results of daily SO2, NOX, and CO CEMS drift tests and quarterly Appendix F accuracy assessments; (6) records of initial performance tests and all annual performance retests for compliance with PM, dioxin/furan, HCl, Cd, Pb, and Hg limits; and (7) records of periodic testing for fugitive ash emissions.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was estimated to be 41 with 90 responses per year. The annual recordkeeping and reporting hour burden for this collection was estimated to be 1,297 hours. On the average each respondent reported 2.2 times per year. For each new facility, the initial notifications and performance test require approximately 14 hours. There are no capital/startup costs or operations and maintenance costs associated with continuous emission monitoring in the previous ICR; therefore, there are no capital, or operation and maintenance costs associated with this ICR.

In addition to the monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements listed in the General Provisions (40 CFR part 60, subpart A), sources are required to record, at least once per shift, the following specific parameters: The opacity of the gases discharged into the atmosphere from any recovery furnace; the concentration of TRS emissions on a dry basis and the percent of oxygen by volume on a dry basis in the gases discharged into the atmosphere; for an incinerator, the combustion temperature at the point of incineration of effluent gases being emitted by the affected facilities; and for any lime kiln or melt discharge tank using a scrubber emission control device, the pressure loss of the gas stream through the control equipment and the scrubbing liquid pressure to the control equipment. Sources are also required to record on a daily basis 12-hour average TRS concentrations and oxygen concentrations (for the recovery furnace and lime kiln) for two consecutive periods of each operating. Sources must report semiannually measurements of excess emissions as defined by the standard for the applicable affected facility.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was 82 with 170 responses per year. The annual industry reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information was 9,959 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately 2.1 times per year and 59 hours were spent preparing each response. The total annual reporting and recordkeeping cost burden for this collection of information was $2,828,000. This included an annual cost of $300,000 associated with capital/startup costs and $2,528,000 associated with the annual operation and maintenance costs.

(19) NSPS subpart HHH: New Source Performance Standards for Synthetic Fiber Production Facilities (40 CFR part 60, subpart HHH); EPA ICR Number 1156.09; OMB Control Number 2060-0059; expiration date January 31, 2003.

Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this rule are each solvent-spun synthetic fiber process that produces more than 500 megagrams of Start Printed Page 41991fiber per year and that commenced construction or reconstruction after November 23, 1982. The provisions of this subpart do not apply to any facility that uses the reaction spinning process to produce spandex fiber or the viscose process to produce rayon fiber, nor to facilities that commence modification but not reconstruction after November 23, 1982.

Abstract: The Agency has determined that volatile organic compounds emissions from synthetic fiber production facilities contribute to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare.

In addition to the monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements listed in the General Provisions (40 CFR part 60, subpart A), sources are required to submit the results of subsequent performance test results and any correction action taken, if they indicate that volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions exceed the standard, on a quarterly basis after the initial performance test. If no exceedances occur, sources must submit a report semiannually.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was 31 with 85 responses per year. The annual industry reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information was 2,696 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately 2.7 times per year and 32 hours were spent preparing each response. The total annual reporting and recordkeeping cost burden for this collection of information was $228,000. This included an annual cost of $3,000 associated with capital/startup costs and $225,000 associated with the annual operation and maintenance costs.

(20) NESHAP-MACT subpart AAAA: Federal Emission Guidelines for Existing Municipal Solid Waste Landfills (40 CFR part 63, subpart AAAA); EPA ICR Number 1893.03; OMB Control Number 2060-0430; expiration date February 28, 2003.

Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are owners or operators of existing municipal solid waste landfills that are located in any State for which a State plan has not been approved and become effective.

Abstract: The Agency has determined that the emissions from municipal solid waste landfills cause, or contribute significantly to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. The Administrator is charged under Section 111 of the Clean Air Act (CAA) to establish procedures for each State to submit a plan that would establish standards of performance for any existing source for any air pollutant. If the State has not developed such a plan, then the Administrator may require any person who owns or operates any emission source or is subject to any requirements of the CAA, to establish and maintain reports; make reports; install, use, and maintain monitoring equipment or methods; sample emissions; and provide any other information as required.

All owners and operators of existing municipal solid waste landfills must submit an initial design capacity report. If the design capacity of an existing landfill is equal to or greater than 2,500,000 megagrams in weight and equal to or greater than 2,500,000 cubic meters in volume, the owner or operator is required to determine the facility's nonmethane organic compound (NMOC) emission rate. Based on a three-tier calculation system, the owner or operator will either install a collection and control system or perform testing at the next tier level to recalculate the annual NMOC emission rate. If the NMOC emission rate is determined to be less than 50 megagrams per year (Mg/yr), using Tier 1, Tier 2, or Tier 3 calculations, no further calculations or testing is required for that year.

For landfills required to install collection and control systems, submission of a collection and control system design plan is required. After review of the design plan and installation of the collections and control system, and initial performance test and report for the system is required. There after, annual compliance reports are required. Owners or operators are required to keep continuous monitoring records of the parameters reported in the initial performance report and records of monthly monitoring of surface methane concentration.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was 3,837 with 384 responses per year. The annual industry reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information was 15,110 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately 0.10 times per year and 39 hours were spent preparing each response. The total annual reporting and recordkeeping cost burden for this collection of information was $890,000. This included an annual cost of $788,000 associated with capital/startup costs and $102,000 associated with the annual operation and maintenance costs.

(21) NSPS subpart JJJ: New Source Performance Standard for Petroleum Dry Cleaners (40 CFR part 60, subpart JJJ); EPA ICR Number 0997.07; and OMB Control Number 2060-0079; expiration date March 31, 2003.

Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are petroleum solvent dry cleaning dryers, washers, filters, stills and settling tanks located at petroleum dry cleaning plants.

Abstract: The Administrator has determined that volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions from petroleum dry cleaners cause or contribute to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must conduct a performance test to demonstrate compliance with the applicable emission limitation and retain the results of that test for two years.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was estimated to be 18 with 93 responses per year. The annual recordkeeping and reporting hour burden for this collection was estimated to be 1,483 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately 5.2 times per year and 16 hours were spent preparing each response. There are no capital/startup costs or operations and maintenance costs associated with continuous emission monitoring in the previous ICR; therefore, there are no capital, or operation and maintenance costs associated with this ICR.

(22) FPR subpart FFF: Federal Plan Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements for Large Municipal Waste Combustors Constructed on or Before September 20, 1994 (40 CFR part 62, subpart FFF); EPA ICR Number 1847.03; OMB Control Number 2060-0390; expiration date March 31, 2003.

Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are Large Municipal Waste Combustors Constructed on or Before September 20, 1994 (40 CFR part 62, subpart FFF). Respondents are owners or operators of municipal waste combustors with a capacity to combust greater than 250 tons per day located in States that do not have EPA-approved plans.

Abstract: The Agency has determined that the emissions from large municipal waste combustors cause, or contribute significantly to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare.

This information collection is required as a result of a Federal Plans developed at 40 CFR part 62, subpart FFF, to implement and enforce the Start Printed Page 41992emission guidelines (40 CFR part 60, subpart Cb) for large municipal waste combustors (MWCs) that were promulgated under the authority of Clean Air Act (CAA) Sections 111 and 129. Under CAA Section 129(b)(2), States were required to submit plans to the Administrator for approval by December 19, 1996, that implement and enforce the 40 CFR part 60, subpart Cb. Section 129(b)(3) requires the Administrator to promulgate a Federal Plan to implement and enforce the guidelines in those States that have not submitted an approvable plan to Administrator by December 19, 1997.

40 CFR part 60, subpart Cb requires all respondents to comply with the recordkeeping and reporting requirements at 40 CFR part 60, subpart Eb, Section 60.59b except for certain notifications regarding the siting plan, construction requirements, performance testing procedures and certifications. The primary recordkeeping and reporting requirements of subpart Eb include a materials separation plan; notification of public meeting; the retention of continuous emission monitoring data; records of exceedances; records carbon injection system data; the names of the plant operator, shift supervisors and control room operators; and performance test reports.

Burden Statement: In the previously approved ICR, the estimated number of respondents for this information collection was 56 with 112 responses per year. The annual industry reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information was 58,915 hours. On the average, each respondent reported approximately two times per year and 508 hours were spent preparing each response. The total annual reporting and recordkeeping cost burden for this collection of information was $3,218,000 which is comprised entirely of annual operation and maintenance costs. There are no capital/startup costs associated with this ICR.
