ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 2362.01, OMB Control No. 2060–New. ICR Status: This ICR is for a new information collection activity. 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 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: This information collection will be conducted by EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) to assist the Administrator of EPA to determine the current population of affected coal- and oil-fired electric utility steam generating units and to develop emission standards for this source category as required by Clean Air Act (CAA) section 112(d). To obtain the information necessary to identify and categorize all coal- and oil-fired electric utility steam generating units potentially affected by the CAA section 112(d) standard, this ICR will solicit information from all potentially affected units under authority of CAA section 114. EPA intends to provide the PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58013 survey in electronic format; however, written responses will also be accepted. The survey will be submitted to all facilities identified as being coal- or oilfired electric utility steam generating units through data bases available to the Agency. EPA envisions allowing recipients 3 months to respond to the survey. To further define the emission level being achieved by the top performing 12 percent of similar sources for the existing population, this ICR requires that certain units conduct emission testing concurrent with the survey. EPA envisions allowing recipients 6 to 8 months to respond to the emission testing requirement. Burden Statement: The total burden for the coal- and oil-fired electric utility steam generating units’ data gathering effort is estimated to be 86,881 hours and $96,541,879 (74 hours and $106,726 per respondent for approximately 1,334 units). 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: Respondents affected by this action may be owners/operators of coal- and oilfired electric utility steam generating units as defined under CAA section 112(a)(8). Estimated Number of Respondents: 531. Frequency of Response: One time. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 86,881. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $96,541,879. This includes an estimated cost of $5,904,197 for the electronic survey component and an estimated cost for the stack testing component of $90,637,682. There are no capital or O&M costs.

    Title: Information Collection Effort for Coal- and Oil-fired 
Electric Utility Steam Generating Units.
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 2362.01, OMB Control No. 2060-New.
    ICR Status: This ICR is for a new information collection activity. 
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 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: This information collection will be conducted by EPA's 
Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) to assist the Administrator of EPA to 
determine the current population of affected coal- and oil-fired 
electric utility steam generating units and to develop emission 
standards for this source category as required by Clean Air Act (CAA) 
section 112(d).
    To obtain the information necessary to identify and categorize all 
coal- and oil-fired electric utility steam generating units potentially 
affected by the CAA section 112(d) standard, this ICR will solicit 
information from all potentially affected units under authority of CAA 
section 114. EPA intends to provide the survey in electronic format; 
however, written responses will also be accepted. The survey will be 
submitted to all facilities identified as being coal- or oil-fired 
electric utility steam generating units through data bases available to 
the Agency. EPA envisions allowing recipients 3 months to respond to 
the survey. To further define the emission level being achieved by the 
top performing 12 percent of similar sources for the existing 
population, this ICR requires that certain units conduct emission 
testing concurrent with the survey. EPA envisions allowing recipients 6 
to 8 months to respond to the emission testing requirement.
    Burden Statement: The total burden for the coal- and oil-fired 
electric utility steam generating units' data gathering effort is 
estimated to be 86,881 hours and $96,541,879 (74 hours and $106,726 per 
respondent for approximately 1,334 units). 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: Respondents affected by this action 
may be owners/operators of coal- and oil-fired electric utility steam 
generating units as defined under CAA section 112(a)(8).
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 531.
    Frequency of Response: One time.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 86,881.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $96,541,879. This includes an 
estimated cost of $5,904,197 for the electronic survey component and an
