Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Grain Elevators (40 CFR part 60, subpart DD) apply to each affected facility at any grain terminal elevator or any grain storage elevator. The facilities are each truck unloading station, truck loading station, barge and ship loading station, railcar loading station, railcar unloading station, grain dryer and all grain handling operations that commenced construction, modification or reconstruction after August 3, 1978. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make a one-time-only report of the date of construction or reconstruction; notification of the actual date of startup; notification of any physical or operational change to existing facility that may increase the rate of emission of the regulated pollutant; notification of initial performance test; and results of initial performance test. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart DD

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Grain elevator operations.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60 Subpart DD).

Estimated number of respondents: 200 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially.

Total estimated burden: 460 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $52,000 (per year), which includes no annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years, and the growth rate for the industry is very low or non-existent. This ICR reflects the on-going burden and costs for existing facilities.
