Proposed Cercla Administrative Cost Recovery Settlement; Chester Realty Trust and Warren W. Kean, Mohawk Tannery Superfund Site, Nashua, NH, 35906 [E6-9871]

Download as PDF 35906 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 120 / Thursday, June 22, 2006 / Notices participation’’ under ICR 1949.03. The estimated hours for program participation were dramatically overestimated in the previous ICR, and EPA has determined therefore that these hours were incorrect. Specifically, EPA estimated significant burden for ‘‘compliance demonstration, EMS documentation and reporting, continuous performance demonstration, and reporting and public outreach.’’ This burden was not correctly estimated, nor attributable to information collection requirements of the Performance Track Program. Other areas that contributed to the decrease in burden hours are application and renewal application hours, incentives hours, and annual performance reporting hours. Estimated burden hours per facility for the customer satisfaction survey have not changed. Finally, EPA has gained tremendous experience in the last three years about implementing its Performance Track Program, and assessing information collection burden in ICR amendments 1949.03 and 1949.04. As a result of this experience, EPA believes that current estimates in ICR 1949.05 to be significantly more accurate than previous estimates. What Is the Next Step in the Process for This ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. If you have any questions about this ICR or the approval process, please contact the technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Dated: June 14, 2006. David W.
