ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2010. 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, 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 affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, and any changes, or additions to the General Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart AAAAA. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time-only report of any physical or operational changes, initial performance tests, and periodic reports and results. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records 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. Reports, at a minimum, are required semiannually. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 70 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 E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1 pwalker on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES 68844 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 248 / Tuesday, December 29, 2009 / Notices 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: 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.

ACTION: Notice of Proposal not to reissue NPDES General Permit. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA Region 6 is providing notice that the Agency does not intend to reissue the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) General Permit for Egg Production Operations (EPOs) in New Mexico and Oklahoma (NMG800000 and OKG800000) which was issued on July 18, 2002 (67 FR 47362). The permit expired on August 17, 2007 and was never reissued. Part I.G of the permit stipulates that the permit be administratively continued until the permit is reissued or EPA publishes a determination not to reissue the permit. With this notice, EPA provides notice of its determination not to reissue the permit. No facilities applied for or were granted coverage under this permit. At this time, any facility eligible for coverage under this general permit that is seeking NPDES permit coverage should submit an application for an individual permit. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Scott Stine, NPDES Permits and TMDL Branch (6WQ–PP), Environmental Protection Agency, 1445 Ross Ave., Suite 1200, Dallas, TX 75202; telephone number: (214) 665–7182; fax number: (214) 665–2191; e-mail address: stine.scott@epa.gov. At the time of permit issuance, the United Egg Producers (UEP), a farmer cooperative that represents egg producers nationwide, was in an XL project agreement with EPA to allow eligible facilities to obtain permit coverage under a general permit. Project XL was a national pilot program that allowed state and local governments, businesses and federal facilities to develop with EPA more cost-effective ways of achieving environmental and public health protection. With this notice not to reissue the general permit, EPA is closing out this XL project as it is no longer active. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority: Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.

    Title: NESHAP for Lime Manufacturing.
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2072.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0544.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2010. 
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, 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 affected entities are subject to the General 
Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, and any changes, 
or additions to the General Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, 
subpart AAAAA. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must 
submit a one-time-only report of any physical or operational changes, 
initial performance tests, and periodic reports and results. Owners or 
operators are also required to maintain records 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. Reports, at a minimum, are required semiannually.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 70 
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

[[Page 68844]]

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: 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.
