Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 235 / Friday, December 7, 2007 / Notices The information in both components of this ICR will be collected under authority of section 114 of the CAA. Section 114(a) states, in pertinent part: pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES For the purpose * * * (iii) carrying out any provision of this Chapter * * * (1) the Administrator may require any person who owns or operates any emission source * * * to– * * * (D) sample such emissions (in accordance with such procedures or methods, at such locations, at such intervals, during such periods and in such manner as the Administrator shall prescribe); (E) keep records on control equipment parameters, production variables or other indirect data when direct monitoring of emissions is impractical * * * (G) provide such other information as the Administrator may reasonably require * * * The data collected will be used to revise the population of potentially affected boilers and process heaters, and update existing emission test data and fuel analysis information. These data will be used by the Agency to develop the revised NESHAP for boilers and process heaters (and potentially incinerators) under sections 112 and 129 of the CAA. Specifically, the data will respond in part to the two research needs, providing the Agency with updated information on the number of potentially affected units, available emission test data and fuel analysis data to address variability. For a subset of units that may become subject to CAA section 129, and thus be required to conduct stack tests, the data will be used to complete emission data gaps. All data collected will be added to existing emission test databases for boilers, process heaters, and when appropriate, incinerators; it will also be used to further evaluate the HAP emissions from these sources. This collection of information is mandatory under section 114 of the CAA (42 U.S.C 7414). All information submitted to EPA pursuant to this ICR for which a claim of confidentiality is made is safeguarded according to Agency policies in 40 CFR part 2, subpart B. 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. OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9. The EPA would like to solicit comments to: (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:30 Dec 06, 2007 Jkt 214001 proposed collection of information, including the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Burden Statement: The projected cost and hour burden for this one-time collection of information is $19,398,000 and 125,400 hours. This burden is based on an estimated 3,396 likely respondents to the electronic survey component and an estimated 350 respondents to the stack testing component. 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. The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here. Estimated total number of potential respondents: 3,396. Frequency of response: One time. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1.1 (electronic survey component and stack testing component combined) Estimated total annual burden hours: 125,400. Estimated total annual costs: $19,398,000. This includes an estimated burden cost of $7,685,100 for the electronic survey component and an estimated cost of $11,712,800 for the stack testing component. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69215 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: November 30, 2007.
