ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1564.07, OMB Control Number 2060– 0202. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on November 30, 2007. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for 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 PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for small industrial-commercial-institutional steam generating units, published at 40 CFR part 60, subpart Dc, were proposed on June 9, 1989, and promulgated on September 12, 1990. These standards apply to industrial-commercialinstitutional steam generating units with maximum design heat input capacity of 29 megawatts (MW) (100 million Btu/hr) or less, but greater than or equal to 2.9 MW (10 million Btu/hr), commencing construction, modification, or reconstruction after June 9, 1989. The standards limit the emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and particulate matter (PM). For the purposes of this document, new units are those affected units that have had construction, modification, or reconstruction within the last three years. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart Dc. In general, all NSPS standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. Owners or operators 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. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance and are required of all sources subject to NSPS. Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least two years following the date of such measurements, maintenance reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state or local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are sent directly to the EPA regional office. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart Dc, as authorized in section 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The required information consists of emissions data and other information that have been determined to be private. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. The OMB Control Number for EPA’s regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, and are identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is E:\FR\FM\24OCN1.SGM 24OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 205 / Wednesday, October 24, 2007 / Notices yshivers on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES estimated to average 293 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. 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 which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Respondents/Affected Entities: Small industrial-commercial-institutional steam generating units. Estimated Number of Respondents: 235. Frequency of Response: Initially, on occasion, and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 159,972. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $19,653,054 which includes $1,491,005 annualized Capital Startup cost, $7,955,140 annualized Operating and Maintenance (O&M) cost and $10,206,909 annual Labor Costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no significant change in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations. First, the regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. Secondly, the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent. There is, however, an adjustment in the labor hour estimate. The previous ICR shows a total of 156,610 annual hours. This renewal ICR shows a total of 159,972 annual hours. The small labor hour increase of 3,362 was caused by a mathematical error in the previous ICR. There is also a small change in the cost estimate. The previous ICR used a cost figure that was rounded-up ($9,446,000). This ICR uses the exact cost figure of ($9,446,145) resulting in a small cost increase of $145. Dated: October 18, 2007. Sara Hisel-McCoy, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division. [FR Doc.

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: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for small 
industrial-commercial-institutional steam generating units, published 
at 40 CFR part 60, subpart Dc, were proposed on June 9, 1989, and 
promulgated on September 12, 1990. These standards apply to industrial-
commercial-institutional steam generating units with maximum design 
heat input capacity of 29 megawatts (MW) (100 million Btu/hr) or less, 
but greater than or equal to 2.9 MW (10 million Btu/hr), commencing 
construction, modification, or reconstruction after June 9, 1989. The 
standards limit the emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and 
particulate matter (PM). For the purposes of this document, new units 
are those affected units that have had construction, modification, or 
reconstruction within the last three years. This information is being 
collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart Dc.
    In general, all NSPS standards require initial notifications, 
performance tests, and periodic reports. Owners or operators 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. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in 
determining compliance and are required of all sources subject to NSPS.
    Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall 
maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least 
two years following the date of such measurements, maintenance reports, 
and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state or local 
authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the 
reports are sent directly to the EPA regional office. This information 
is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart 
Dc, as authorized in section 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The 
required information consists of emissions data and other information 
that have been determined to be private.
    An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required

currently valid OMB Control Number. The OMB Control Number for EPA's 
regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, and are 
identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is

[[Page 60361]]

estimated to average 293 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. 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 which have subsequently 
changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of 
information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of 
information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Small industrial-commercial-
institutional steam generating units.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 235.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, on occasion, and semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 159,972.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $19,653,054 which includes $1,491,005 
annualized Capital Startup cost, $7,955,140 annualized Operating and 
Maintenance (O&M) cost and $10,206,909 annual Labor Costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no significant change in this 
ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations. 
First, the regulations have not changed over the past three years and 
are not anticipated to change over the next three years. Secondly, the 
growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent.
    There is, however, an adjustment in the labor hour estimate. The 
previous ICR shows a total of 156,610 annual hours. This renewal ICR 
shows a total of 159,972 annual hours. The small labor hour increase of 
3,362 was caused by a mathematical error in the previous ICR.
    There is also a small change in the cost estimate. The previous ICR 
used a cost figure that was rounded-up ($9,446,000). This ICR uses the 
exact cost figure of ($9,446,145) resulting in a small cost increase of 
$145.
