Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NESHAP (40 CFR part 60, subpart A), and any changes or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart Dc. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time-only report of any physical or operational changes, initial performance tests, and periodic reports and results. 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. Reports are required semiannually at a minimum.
Form Numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of small industrial-commercial-institutional steam generating units.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart Dc)
Estimated number of respondents: 268 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially, semiannually, and occasionally.
Total estimated burden: 181,964 hours (per year). “Burden” is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $28,557,971 (per year), includes $10,758,723 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the respondent and Agency burden from the most recently approved ICR due to an increase in the number of new or modified sources. This ICR assumes an industry growth rate of 11 respondents per year, which results in an average increase of 33 respondents since the last ICR renewal period. The industry growth also results in an increase in O&M costs. In addition, this ICR corrects the number of new sources that are expected to use COMS for PM monitoring, which results in an increase in capital costs.
