Title: NESHAP for Site Remediation (Renewal).

ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2062.03, OMB Control Number 2060-0534.

ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2006. Under the 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 collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control number 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 Start Printed Page 76644control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.

Abstract: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required under section 111 of the Clean Air Act, as amended, to collect data. The information will be used by Agency enforcement personnel to (1) Identify existing sources subject to these standards; (2) ensure that Best Demonstrated Technology is being properly applied; and (3) ensure that the emission control devise is being properly operated and maintained on a continuous basis. In addition, records and reports are necessary to enable the EPA to identify those site remediation facilities that may not be in compliance with these standards. Based on reported information, the EPA can decide which facilities should be inspected and what records or processes should be inspected at the facilities. The records that site remediation facilities maintain would indicate to the EPA whether the personnel are operating and maintaining control equipment properly. The type of data required is principally emissions data (through parametric monitoring) and would not be confidential. If any information is submitted to the EPA for which a claim of confidentiality is made, the information would be safeguarded according to the Agency policies set forth in 40 CFR, chapter 1, part 2, subpart B.

Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and record keeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 219 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 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: Site remediation facilities.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 286.

Frequency of Response: On occasion and semiannually.

Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 125,027.

Estimated Total Annual Cost: $582,000 for operating and maintenance costs. There are no capital/startup costs associated with this ICR.

Change in Estimates: There is a decrease in hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is not due to any program changes. Over the past three years, the respondents completed those activities required to achieve initial compliance. Such activities are more burdensome than the burden associated with the rule requirements for continuing compliance as addressed by this ICR. Hence, there is a decrease in burden.
