Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 70838 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 239 / Thursday, December 13, 2007 / Notices believes strongly that if the minimum requirements specified under the regulations are not met, neither the facilities nor EPA can ensure that UST systems are being managed in a manner protective of human health and the environment. The response to this information collection for industry is mandatory under 40 CFR part 280. EPA uses state program applications to determine whether to approve a state program. Before granting approval, EPA must determine that programs will be no less stringent than the federal program and contain adequate enforcement mechanisms. States must respond to this information collection in order to obtain or maintain state program approval under 40 CFR part 281. Section 3007(b) of RCRA and 40 CFR part 2, subpart B, which define EPA’s general policy on public disclosure of information, contain provisions for confidentiality. However, the Agency does not anticipate that businesses will assert a claim of confidentiality covering all or part of the requirements covered in this ICR. If such a claim were asserted, EPA must and will treat the information in accordance with the regulations cited above. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 16 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: UST facilities and states. Estimated Number of Respondents: 237,578. Frequency of Response: Once, on occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 5,969,217. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $743,453,178 ($453,047,585 in labor costs; $95,975,266 in annualized VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:10 Dec 12, 2007 Jkt 214001 capital/startup costs; and $194,430,327 in operation and maintenance costs). Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 163,020 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is due to updated data on the respondent universe which show a lower number of affected facilities than previously estimated. Dated: December 6, 2007.

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 regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) were promulgated on December 15, 1989, and amended on February 12, 1999, and October 17, 2000. Owners or operators of existing and new facilities that are furnace or foundry coke by-product recovery plants that produce benzene emissions subject to NESHAP subpart L must submit notification of and application for construction, reconstruction or modification, and notice of the anticipated date of initial and actual startup. Owners and operators of regulated facilities must also submit: notifications of performance tests; any physical or operational change which may increase the emission rate; implementation of equipment leakage requirements; and notification that the requirements of 40 CFR part 61, subpart L, 40 CFR part 61, subpart V, and 40 CFR part 61, subpart A, have been met. In addition, these owners and operators must submit performance test reports and semiannual reports. Records must be maintained of leak detection and repair logs, the design requirements of closed-vent systems and control devices, applicable valve information, design control device, plan operations and corrective action, compliance tests, reference values of monitored parameters, and monitoring results and exceedances. In addition, records must be kept of annual furnace and foundry coke production for furnace coke byproduct recovery plants, monitoring data, monitoring system calibration checks, and the occurrence and duration of periods where the monitoring system is malfunctioning or inoperative. 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 five 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:10 Dec 12, 2007 Jkt 214001 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 61, subpart L, 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 estimated to average 92 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: Benzene emissions from coke byproduct recovery plants. Estimated Number of Respondents: 17. Frequency of Response: Semiannually, and on occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 3,137. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $199,375, which includes $0 annualized Capital Startup costs, $0 Operating and Maintenance Costs (O&M), and $199,375 annualized Labor Costs. Changes in the Estimates: The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. There is only one small change in the labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. The change is caused by different methods of rounding numbers. The previous ICR shows (3,138) as the labor hours, however, this ICR uses the exact hours of (3,137). The growth rate PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 70839 for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR are used in this ICR, and there is no change in burden to industry.

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 regulations is 
consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAP) were promulgated on December 15, 1989, and amended 
on February 12, 1999, and October 17, 2000. Owners or operators of 
existing and new facilities that are furnace or foundry coke by-product 
recovery plants that produce benzene emissions subject to NESHAP 
subpart L must submit notification of and application for construction, 
reconstruction or modification, and notice of the anticipated date of 
initial and actual startup. Owners and operators of regulated 
facilities must also submit: notifications of performance tests; any 
physical or operational change which may increase the emission rate; 
implementation of equipment leakage requirements; and notification that 
the requirements of 40 CFR part 61, subpart L, 40 CFR part 61, subpart 
V, and 40 CFR part 61, subpart A, have been met. In addition, these 
owners and operators must submit performance test reports and 
semiannual reports. Records must be maintained of leak detection and 
repair logs, the design requirements of closed-vent systems and control 
devices, applicable valve information, design control device, plan 
operations and corrective action, compliance tests, reference values of 
monitored parameters, and monitoring results and exceedances. In 
addition, records must be kept of annual furnace and foundry coke 
production for furnace coke by-product recovery plants, monitoring 
data, monitoring system calibration checks, and the occurrence and 
duration of periods where the monitoring system is malfunctioning or 
inoperative.
    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 
five 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 61, subpart L, 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 estimated to average 92 
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: Benzene emissions from coke by-
product recovery plants.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 17.
    Frequency of Response: Semiannually, and on occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 3,137.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $199,375, which includes $0 annualized 
Capital Startup costs, $0 Operating and Maintenance Costs (O&M), and 
$199,375 annualized Labor Costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: The regulations have not changed over the 
past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three 
years. There is only one small change in the labor hours in this ICR 
compared to the previous ICR. The change is caused by different methods 
of rounding numbers. The previous ICR shows (3,138) as the labor hours, 
however, this ICR uses the exact hours of (3,137). The growth rate for 
the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no 
significant change in the overall burden.
    Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there 
is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost figures in 
the previous ICR are used in this ICR, and there is no change in burden 
to industry.
