Abstract: The NESHAP for Source Categories: Gasoline Distribution Bulk Terminals, Bulk Plants, Pipeline Facilities, and Gasoline Dispensing Facilities applies to owners or operators of any existing or new gasoline distribution facilities that are an area source of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emissions. In addition to the initial notification and notification of compliance status required by the General Provisions to 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart A, respondents are required to submit one-time reports of start of construction, anticipated and actual startup dates, and physical or operational changes to existing facilities. Reports of initial performance tests on control devices at gasoline distribution storage tanks, loading racks, and vapor balance systems are also required and are necessary to show that the installed control devices are meeting the emission limitations required by the NESHAP. Annual reports of storage tank inspections at all affected facilities are required. In addition, respondents must submit semiannual compliance and continuous monitoring system performance reports, and semiannual reports of equipment leaks not repaired within 15 days or loadings of cargo tanks for which vapor tightness documentation is not available.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Gasoline distribution bulk terminals, bulk plants, pipeline facilities, and gasoline dispensing facilities.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart BBBBBB and CCCCCC).

Estimated number of respondents: 19,120 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 175,308 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $17,273,140 (per year), includes $110,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 114,791 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is due to an adjustment to the labor rates, mathematical corrections, and corrections to the number respondents required for each burden item. Additionally, the previous ICR did not account for the burden associated with equipment leak inspections. In this ICR, we have conducted a thorough review of the assumptions and updated all burden estimates, as appropriate.
