(1) Docket ID Number: EPA-HQ-OECA-2013-0303; Title: NSPS for Equipment Leaks of VOC in Petroleum Refineries (40 CFR Part 60, Subparts GGG and GGGa); ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 0983.13, OMB Control Number 2060-0067; ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on April 30, 2014.

Abstract: Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make one-time-only notifications. 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. Monitoring requirements specific to equipment leaks of VOC in petroleum refineries provide information on which components are leaking VOCs. NSPS Subpart GGG references the compliance requirements of NSPS subpart VV, and NSPS subpart GGGa references the compliance requirements of NSPS subpart VVa. Owners or operators are required to periodically record information identifying leaking equipment, repair methods used to stop the leaks, and dates of repair. Semiannual reports are required to measure compliance with the standards of NSPS Subparts VV and VVa as referenced by NSPS subparts GGG and GGGa. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance and are required, in general, of all sources subject to NSPS. Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least two years following the date of such measurements, maintenance reports, and records.

Total estimated cost: $271,590 (per year), includes $231,753 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in Estimates: There is an adjustment in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The change in the burden and cost estimates occurred because the standard has been in effect for more than three years and the requirements are different during initial compliance (new facilities) as compared to on-going compliance (existing facilities). The previous ICR reflected those burdens and costs associated with the initial activities for subject facilities. This includes purchasing monitoring equipment, conducting performance test(s) and establishing recordkeeping systems. This ICR, by in large, reflects the on-going burden and costs for existing facilities. Activities for existing source include continuously monitoring of pollutants and the submission of semiannual reports.

(9) Docket ID Number: EPA-HQ-OECA-2013-0311; Title: Emission Guidelines for Sewage Sludge Incinerators (40 CFR Part 60, Subpart MMMM); ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2403.03, OMB Control Number 2060-0661; ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2014.

Abstract: This supporting statement addresses information collection activities imposed by the Sewage Sludge Incineration (SSI) Unit Emission Guidelines Subpart MMMM. The guidelines do not apply directly to SSI unit owners and operators. The guidelines can be thought of as model regulations that States use in developing State plans to implement the emission guidelines. If a State does not develop, adopt, and submit an approvable State plan, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must develop a Federal plan to implement the emission guidelines. This ICR presents the burden to respondents (owners or operators of SSI units) and the Designated Administrator (State or Federal Government) that will be imposed by State plans developed to implement the emission guidelines. Respondents are owners or operators of existing SSI units, including fluidized bed or multiple hearth units.
