Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 212 / Thursday, November 2, 2006 / Notices EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: Owners or operators of steam generating units subject to Subpart D must make one-time-only notifications of construction/ reconstruction, anticipated and actual startup, initial performance test, physical or operational changes, and demonstration of a continuous monitoring system. They must also submit reports on initial performance test results, monitoring system performance, and excess emissions. Records must be maintained of startups, shutdowns, malfunctions, and periods when the continuous monitoring system is inoperative. The required notifications are used to inform the Agency or delegated authority when a source becomes subject to the standard. Performance test reports are needed as these are the Agency’s record of a source’s initial capability to comply with the emission standard, and serve as a record of the operating conditions under which compliance was achieved. The monitoring and excess emissions reports (which are semiannual) are used for problem identification, as a check on source operation and maintenance, and for compliance determinations. The information collected from recordkeeping and reporting requirements are used for targeting inspections, and for other uses in compliance and enforcement programs. Responses to this information collection are deemed to be mandatory, per section 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The required information consists of emissions data and other information that have been determined not to be private. However, any information submitted to the Agency for which a claim of confidentiality is made will be safeguarded according to the Agency policies set forth in Title 40, chapter 1, part 2, subpart B—Confidentiality of Business Information (CBI) (see 40 CFR part 2; 41 FR 36902, September 1, 1976; amended by 43 FR 40000, September 8, 1978; 43 FR 42251, September 20, 1978; 44 FR 17674, March 23, 1979). Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 46.6 hours per response.

Abstract: The Administrator has judged that PM emissions from nonmetallic mineral processing plants cause or contribute to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. This standard applies to owners or operators of new, modified, or reconstructed facilities at nonmetallic mineral processing plants that commenced construction, modification, or reconstruction after August 1, 1985. VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:49 Nov 01, 2006 Jkt 211001 Nonmetallic mineral processing includes the following affected facilities: each crusher, grinding mill, screening operation, bucket elevator, belt conveyor, bagging operation, storage bin, and enclosed truck or railcar loading station. This standard does not apply to facilities located in underground mines; stand-alone screening operations; operations that only involve recycled asphalt; fixed sand gravel, or crushed stone plants with capacities of 25 tons per hour or less; portable sand, gravel, or crushed stone plants with capacities of 150 tons per hour or less; common clay or pumice plants with capacities of 10 tons per hour or less. Additionally, when an existing facility is replaced by a piece of equipment of equal or smaller size it is not subject to the standard until all facilities in a production line are replaced. Affected facilities in the plant process that are subject to 40 CFR part 60, subpart F, for Portland Cement NSPS, or subpart I, Asphalt Concrete Plants NSPS, are not subject to this NSPS. Respondents must submit the following one-time-only reports: notification of the date of construction or reconstruction, notification of the actual date of initial startup, notification of any physical or operational change to an existing facility which may increase the regulated pollutant emission rate, notification of demonstration of the continuous emission monitor system (CMS) where the CMS is required (wet scrubber), notification of the date of the initial performance test, and the results of the initial performance test. Wet mining/screening operations are exempt from all requirements of the regulation, except an initial report and record describing the location of these operations. The general provision requirement to submit a notification of the anticipated date of initial startup is being waived for respondents subject to this standard. The required notifications are used to inform the Agency or delegated authority when a source becomes subject to the standard. Respondents 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. Owners or operators of facilities using a wet scrubber must record the measurements of both the change in pressure of the gas stream across the scrubber and the scrubbing liquid flow rate and submit semiannual reports for occurrences when the measurements of the scrubber pressure loss (or gain) and liquid flow rate differ PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 by more than ±30 percent from the averaged determined during the most recent performance test. All records shall be retained for at least two years. The information collected from recordkeeping and reporting requirements are necessary to ensure compliance with these standards, as required by section 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 5.6 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency.

after August 1, 1985. Nonmetallic mineral processing includes the 
following affected facilities: each crusher, grinding mill, screening 
operation, bucket elevator, belt conveyor, bagging operation, storage 
bin, and enclosed truck or railcar loading station. This standard does 
not apply to facilities located in underground mines; stand-alone 
screening operations; operations that only involve recycled asphalt; 
fixed sand gravel, or crushed stone plants with capacities of 25 tons 
per hour or less; portable sand, gravel, or crushed stone plants with 
capacities of 150 tons per hour or less; common clay or pumice plants 
with capacities of 10 tons per hour or less. Additionally, when an 
existing facility is replaced by a piece of equipment of equal or 
smaller size it is not subject to the standard until all facilities in 
a production line are replaced. Affected facilities in the plant 
process that are subject to 40 CFR part 60, subpart F, for Portland 
Cement NSPS, or subpart I, Asphalt Concrete Plants NSPS, are not

regulation, except an initial report and record describing the location 
of these operations. The general provision requirement to submit a 
notification of the anticipated date of initial startup is being waived 
for respondents subject to this standard. The required notifications 
are used to inform the Agency or delegated authority when a source 
becomes subject to the standard.
    Respondents 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. Owners or operators of facilities using a wet 
scrubber must record the measurements of both the change in pressure of
