Owners/operators of asphalt processing and roofing manufacture are required to submit one-time only notification of construction/ reconstruction, actual startup, initial performance test, physical or operational changes, and demonstration of a continuous monitoring system. Records must be maintained 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, in general, 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 UU, 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 113 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:17 Jan 22, 2008 Jkt 214001 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: Asphalt processing and roofing manufacture. Estimated Number of Respondents: 144. Frequency of Response: Initially, and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 33,912. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $8,714,925, which includes $200,000 annualized Capital Startup costs, $5,040,000 annualized Operating and Maintenance (O&M) costs, and $3,474,925 annualized Labor costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated burden hours as currently identified in the OMB inventory of burdens because the previous tables did not represent all of the reporting requirements. The decrease in the number of sources was caused by buyouts and/or consolidation which the industry has been experiencing for the last several years. The decrease in the capital startup and O&M costs estimates as compared with the previous ICR is attributed solely to the decrease in the number of sources. This ICR corrects the deficiencies.

What Information Collection Activity or ICR Does This Apply to?

    Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are 
state and local governments, state and county colleges, and 
organizations that provide training assistance through the Clean Water 
Act 104(g)(1) Program to municipal wastewater treatment plants.
    Title: National Wastewater Operator Training and Technical 
Assistance Program (Renewal).
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1977.03, OMB Control No. 2040-0238.
    ICR status: The current ICR expires on June 30, 2008. 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 Wastewater Operator Training Program provides on-site 
technical assistance to municipal wastewater treatment plants. 
Information will be collected from the network of forty-six states or 
the 104(g)(1) training centers set up through out the United States. 
The information will be collected to identify the facilities assisted, 
the different types of assistance the program provides and the 
environmental outcomes and benefits of the assistance provided by the 
program. The information will be collected and submitted on either an 
annual or semi-annual basis. A Microsoft Access database and an Excel 
spreadsheet have been developed for this purpose. This ICR will be used 
by EPA for the technical and financial management of the 104(g)(1) 
Program. The 104(g)(1) Program training centers participate in the 
information collection in compliance with the grant conditions. All 
information in the data system will be made public upon request.
    Burden Statement: The total number of respondents is estimated to 
be 46 including the states and the training centers. The annual public 
reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information 
is estimated to be seven hours per respondent for 46 respondents with a 
total burden of 322 hours at an annual cost of $14,361(assuming an 
average hourly salary of $44.60). All forty-six (46) training centers 
and EPA have the necessary equipment, desk-top computers and software, 
to collect and manage this information. There will be no additional 
start-up or maintenance costs associated with this project to perform 
this information collection request. Burden means the total time, 
effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, 
maintain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal 
agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, 
acquire, install, and use 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 be able to respond to 
a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review 
the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose 
information. The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency's 
estimate, which is only briefly summarized here:

[[Page 3958]]

    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 46.
    Frequency of response: Three times a year.
    Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 
Three.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 322 hours.
    Estimated total annual costs: $14,361. This includes an estimated 
reporting burden cost of $14,361 and an estimated cost of $0 for 
capital investment or maintenance and operational costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated 
respondent burden hours compared with that identified in the ICR 
currently approved by OMB. EPA has not modified the requirements that 
were included in the previous ICR.
