Rate Schedule SNF–7 (Supersedes Schedule SNF–6) United States Department of Energy Western Area Power Administration Washoe Project, Stampede Division Schedule of Rate for Non-Firm Power Formula Rate Effective The first day of the first full billing period beginning on or after August 1, 2008, through July 31, 2013, or until superseded by another rate schedule, whichever occurs earlier. Applicable To preference customers under the 2004 Power Marketing Plan and the applicable third party(ies) who are under contract (Contractor) with Western. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Losses will be accounted for under this rate schedule as stated in the service agreement. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY Non-Firm Power Formula Rate In order to serve project use loads and effectively market the energy from Stampede, Western has contracted with a third-party Contractor that provides for a Stampede Energy Exchange Account (SEEA). The SEEA is an annual energy exchange account for Stampede energy. In the SEEA, the revenues from sales (generation revenues) made at the Jkt 214001 Billing BILLING CODE 6450–01–P Alternating current, 60 hertz, threephase, delivered and metered at the voltages and points established by contract. 19:47 Jul 21, 2008 Where: Stampede Annual Transferred Power Revenue Requirement (PRR) = Stampede Annual PRR as identified as a cost transferred to the CVP. Stampede Annual PRR = The total PRR for Stampede required to repay all annual costs, including interest, and the investment within the allowable period. Stampede Revenue = Revenue from applying the SEEA Rate to project generation. [FR Doc. E8–16744 Filed 7–21–08; 8:45 am] Character and Conditions of Service VerDate Aug<31>2005 SEEA Rate are reduced by the project use and station service power costs and SEEA administrative costs. Western applies the ratio of project use costs to the generation revenue recorded in the SEEA to determine a non-reimbursable percentage. One hundred percent minus this non-reimbursable percentage establishes a reimbursable percentage. This reimbursable percentage is then applied to the appropriate power-related costs to determine the reimbursable costs for repayment. The reimbursable costs are then netted against generation revenues made at the SEEA Rate. As stipulated under the 2004 Power Marketing Plan, any remaining reimbursable costs, to include interest and annual capital costs, are then transferred to the Central Valley Project for incorporation into the CVP Power Revenue Requirement. The provisional formula rate for Stampede power is: Stampede Annual Transferred PRR = Stampede Annual PRR¥Stampede Revenue [EPA–HQ–OECA–2007–0128; FRL–8695–6] Agency Information Collection Activities; Submission to OMB for Review and Approval; Comment Request; NESHAP for Ferroalloys Production: Ferromanganese and Silicomanganese (Renewal), ICR Number 1831.04, OMB Number 2060– 0391 Environmental Protection Agency.

ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1831.04, OMB Number 2060–0391. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2008. 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 neither conduct nor 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 the EPA 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) using Maximum Achievable Control Technology were proposed on August 4, 1998, promulgated on May 20, 1999, and amended most recently on March 22, 2001. The rule applies to ferroalloy production facilities that manufacture ferromanganese and silicomanganese that are major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) or are co-located at major sources of HAPs. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. Respondents that are not required to conduct an initial performance test are required to notify the EPA VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:47 Jul 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 Administrator of the initial compliance status of the source. Sources are also required to monitor and maintain records of its operations including: (1) Process or control device parameters; (2) bag leak detention systems; (3) maintenance plan for air pollution control devices (e.g., capture system and venturi scrubbers); (4) certification that monitoring devices are accurate; and (5) the implementation and corrective actions taken related to the startup, shutdown and malfunction plan and the fugitive dust control plan. The types of periodic reports required by this regulation include: Opacity-related reports; performance test results reports; immediate and periodic startup/ shutdown/malfunction reports, quarterly emissions reports; capture hood inspection reports; fugitive dust operations reports; and annual compliance status reports. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all sources subject to NESHAP standards. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 83 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 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: Ferroalloy production facilities that manufacture ferromanganese and silicomanganese and are either major sources of HAPs or are co-located at major sources of HAPs. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1. Frequency of Response: Initially, annually, semiannually and quarterly. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 584 hours. Estimated Total Annual Costs: $37,129 in Labor costs exclusively. There are no annualized capital/startup or O&M costs associated with this ICR. Changes in the Estimates: There are no changes in the labor hours and cost in this ICR compared to the previous PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42571 ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is either very low, or negative, or non-existent, so there are no significant changes 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.

    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2008. 
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 neither conduct nor sponsor, and a person is not required

currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for the EPA 
regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal

    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAP) using Maximum Achievable Control Technology were 
proposed on August 4, 1998, promulgated on May 20, 1999, and amended 
most recently on March 22, 2001. The rule applies to ferroalloy 
production facilities that manufacture ferromanganese and 
silicomanganese that are major sources of hazardous air pollutants 
(HAPs) or are co-located at major sources of HAPs.
    In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, 
performance tests, and periodic reports. Respondents that are not 
required to conduct an initial performance test are required to notify 
the EPA Administrator of the initial compliance status of the source. 
Sources are also required to monitor and maintain records of its 
operations including: (1) Process or control device parameters; (2) bag 
leak detention systems; (3) maintenance plan for air pollution control 
devices (e.g., capture system and venturi scrubbers); (4) certification 
that monitoring devices are accurate; and (5) the implementation and 
corrective actions taken related to the startup, shutdown and 
malfunction plan and the fugitive dust control plan. The types of 
periodic reports required by this regulation include: Opacity-related 
reports; performance test results reports; immediate and periodic 
startup/shutdown/malfunction reports, quarterly emissions reports; 
capture hood inspection reports; fugitive dust operations reports; and 
annual compliance status reports. These notifications, reports, and 
records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of 
all sources subject to NESHAP standards.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 83 
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 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: Ferroalloy production facilities 
that manufacture ferromanganese and silicomanganese and are either 
major sources of HAPs or are co-located at major sources of HAPs.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, annually, semiannually and 
quarterly.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 584 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Costs: $37,129 in Labor costs exclusively. 
There are no annualized capital/startup or O&M costs associated with 
this ICR.
    Changes in the Estimates: There are no changes in the labor hours 
and cost in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two 
considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past 
three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three 
years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is either very low, or 
negative, or non-existent, so there are no significant changes 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.
