Respondents/Affected Entities: Lime manufacturing plants. Estimated Number of Respondents: 62. Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 14,723. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,509,024, which includes $1,384,616 in labor costs, $88,908 in capital/startup costs, and $35,500 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs. Changes in the Estimates: The increase in burden hours and number of responses from the most recently approved ICR is due to an increase in the number of respondents. This ICR based the number of respondents on the number of lime manufacturing plants identified during the rulemaking and accounted for the one additional respondent per year since the rule became final. The previous ICR had identified the number of respondents as the number of companies with plants subject to the rule, but each plant should be considered a separate respondent and this correction is reflected in this ICR. An increase in burden per response also occurred due to an incorrect calculation of the number of responses in the previous ICR. The decrease in capital and annual O&M costs reflects a change made to account for the fact that initial performance testing for Method 5 has been completed for existing sources, and the only units subject to initial testing is estimated to be one respondent per year. The existing 61 respondents are only subject to repeat performance testing every five years, or 12.2 respondents per year. The capital and O&M costs also changed to include the costs for bag leak detection monitors to be consistent with the costs presented in the 2004 final rulemaking notice. Dated: December 18, 2009.
