Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 173 / Friday, September 5, 2008 / Notices The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 1,190. Frequency of response: Quarterly. Estimated total annual burden hours: 404,705 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $51,472,083, which included $26,309,080 in capital and O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 22,012 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This ICR incorporates the burden associated with all CAIRaffected sources, including those located in NOX SIP Call States. The NOX SIP Call ICR (OMB Control Number 2060– 0445) expires at the end of 2008. As such, starting in 2009, the burden associated with the NOX trading program requirements under the NOX SIP Call are now covered in this ICR. Without incorporating those burdens and costs, the overall labor burden in this ICR would be less than the estimate in the prior version of this ICR. Dated: August 28, 2008.

Title: State Program Adequacy Determination: Municipal Solid Waste Landfills and Non-Municipal, NonHazardous Waste Disposal Units that Receive Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator Hazardous Waste (Renewal). ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1608.05, OMB Control No. 2050–0152. 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 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, are 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: Section 4010(c) of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) of 1976 requires that EPA revise the landfill criteria promulgated under paragraph (1) of Section 4004(a) and Section 1008(a)(3). Section 4005(c) of RCRA, as amended by the Hazardous Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) of 1984, requires states to develop and implement permit programs to ensure that municipal solid waste landfills (MSWLFs) and non-municipal, nonhazardous waste disposal units that receive household hazardous waste or conditionally exempt small quantity generator (CESQG) hazardous waste are in compliance with the revised criteria for the design and operation of nonmunicipal, non-hazardous waste disposal units under 40 CFR Part 257, Subpart B and MSWLFs under 40 CFR Part 258. (40 CFR Part 257, Subpart B and 40 CFR Part 258 are henceforth referred to as the ‘‘revised federal criteria’’.) Section 4005(c) of RCRA further mandates the EPA Administrator to determine the adequacy of state permit programs to ensure owner and/ or operator compliance with the revised federal criteria. A state program that is deemed adequate to ensure compliance E:\FR\FM\05SEN1.SGM 05SEN1 mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 51814 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 173 / Friday, September 5, 2008 / Notices may afford flexibility to owners or operators in the approaches they use to meet federal requirements, significantly reducing the burden associated with compliance. In response to the statutory requirement in section 4005(c), EPA developed 40 CFR Part 239, commonly referred to as the State Implementation Rule (SIR). The SIR describes the state application and EPA review procedures and defines the elements of an adequate state permit program. The collection of information from the state during the permit program adequacy determination process allows EPA to evaluate whether a program for which approval is requested is appropriate in structure and authority to ensure owner or operator compliance with the revised federal criteria. The EPA Administrator has delegated the authority to make determinations of adequacy, as contained in the statute, to the EPA Regional Administrator. The appropriate EPA Regional Office, therefore, will use the information provided by each state to determine whether the state’s permit program satisfies the statutory test reflected in the requirements of 40 CFR Part 239. In all cases, the information will be analyzed to determine the adequacy of the state’s permit program for ensuring compliance with the federal revised criteria. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 242 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: State, Local, or Tribal Governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 12. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 968. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:40 Sep 04, 2008 Jkt 214001 Estimated Total Annual Cost: $51,545, which includes $51,545 for annualized labor and $0 for annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. Dated: August 28, 2008.

Landfills and Non-Municipal, Non-Hazardous Waste Disposal Units that 
Receive Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator Hazardous Waste 
(Renewal).
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1608.05, OMB Control No. 2050-0152.
    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 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, are 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: Section 4010(c) of the Resource Conservation and Recovery 
Act (RCRA) of 1976 requires that EPA revise the landfill criteria 
promulgated under paragraph (1) of Section 4004(a) and Section 
1008(a)(3). Section 4005(c) of RCRA, as amended by the Hazardous Solid 
Waste Amendments (HSWA) of 1984, requires states to develop and 
implement permit programs to ensure that municipal solid waste 
landfills (MSWLFs) and non-municipal, non-hazardous waste disposal 
units that receive household hazardous waste or conditionally exempt 
small quantity generator (CESQG) hazardous waste are in compliance with 
the revised criteria for the design and operation of non-municipal, 
non-hazardous waste disposal units under 40 CFR Part 257, Subpart B and 
MSWLFs under 40 CFR Part 258. (40 CFR Part 257, Subpart B and 40 CFR 
Part 258 are henceforth referred to as the ``revised federal 
criteria''.) Section 4005(c) of RCRA further mandates the EPA 
Administrator to determine the adequacy of state permit programs to 
ensure owner and/or operator compliance with the revised federal 
criteria. A state program that is deemed adequate to ensure compliance

[[Page 51814]]

may afford flexibility to owners or operators in the approaches they 
use to meet federal requirements, significantly reducing the burden 
associated with compliance.
    In response to the statutory requirement in section 4005(c), EPA 
developed 40 CFR Part 239, commonly referred to as the State 
Implementation Rule (SIR). The SIR describes the state application and 
EPA review procedures and defines the elements of an adequate state 
permit program. The collection of information from the state during the 
permit program adequacy determination process allows EPA to evaluate 
whether a program for which approval is requested is appropriate in 
structure and authority to ensure owner or operator compliance with the 
revised federal criteria.
    The EPA Administrator has delegated the authority to make 
determinations of adequacy, as contained in the statute, to the EPA 
Regional Administrator. The appropriate EPA Regional Office, therefore, 
will use the information provided by each state to determine whether 
the state's permit program satisfies the statutory test reflected in 
the requirements of 40 CFR Part 239. In all cases, the information will 
be analyzed to determine the adequacy of the state's permit program for 
ensuring compliance with the federal revised criteria.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 242 
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: State, Local, or Tribal Governments.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 12.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 968.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $51,545, which includes $51,545 for 
annualized labor and $0 for annualized capital or O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the estimated 
burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR 
Burdens.
