Title: Federal Emission Guidelines for Large Municipal Waste Combustors Start Printed Page 39113Constructed on or Before September 20, 1994.
ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1847.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0390.
ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on August 30, 2006. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. An Agency may not conduct, or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a request for collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
Abstract: The Emission Guidelines apply to all municipal waste combustion (MWC) units with a combustion capacity greater than 250 tons per day of municipal solid waste (large MWC units), if construction of the unit commenced on, or before September 20, 1994, and the unit is not covered by an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved and currently effective state or tribal plan.
The Emission Guidelines require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. Owners, or operators also are 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, or operators subject to these regulations are required maintain records of measurements and reports for at least five years.
Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1,701 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 which have subsequently changed; 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: Large Municipal Waste Combustors.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 9.
Frequency of Response: Initially, semiannually, annually, and on occasion.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 38,417.
Estimated Total Annual Cost: $384,000, includes $384,000 annualized O&M costs and $0 capital costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 650 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. The decrease in burden from the most recently approved ICR is due to an adjustment. In the previous ICR, the number of MWCs (i.e., sources) was reported rather than the number of respondents. The costs associated with O&M also decreased slightly due to the decrease in the number of respondents.Start Signature
