The information will be used by Agency enforcement personnel to (1) Identify existing sources subject to these standards; (2) ensure that Best Demonstrated Technology is being properly applied; and (3) ensure that the emission control devise is being properly operated and maintained on a continuous basis. In addition, records and reports are necessary to enable the EPA to identify those site remediation facilities that may not be in compliance with these standards. Based on reported information, the EPA can decide which facilities should be inspected and what records or processes should be inspected at the facilities. The records that site remediation facilities maintain would indicate to the EPA whether the personnel are operating and maintaining control equipment properly. The type of data required is principally emissions data (through parametric monitoring) and would not be confidential.

This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; train personnel to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

Over the past three years, the respondents completed those activities required to achieve initial compliance. Such activities are more burdensome than the burden associated with the rule requirements for continuing compliance as addressed by this ICR. Hence, there is a decrease in burden.
