Abstract: The National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) (40 CFR part 63, subpart VVV) apply to both existing and new POTW located at a major source of hazardous air pollutants (HAP), or to Group 1 POTW that are either area or major sources. New facilities include those that either commenced construction or re-construction after the date of proposal. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart VVV.

In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all affected facilities subject to NESHAP.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners and operators of publicly owned treatment works.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart VVV).

Estimated number of respondents: 13 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 7 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $351 (per year), includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease in the respondent burden from the most recently- approved ICR. This decrease is due to changes in the estimates. The previous ICR renewal had included burden for existing sources to submit periodic reports and maintain records; however, the 2016 amendments clarified that the 13 existing sources are not required to submit periodic reports or maintain records.
