Information Collection Request Submitted to OMB for Review and Approval; Comment Request; 8-Hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (Renewal), 69083-69084 [2013-27434]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 222 / Monday, November 18, 2013 / Notices record the monitoring results. Additionally, all affected facilities with existing Title V permits have now submitted their CAM monitoring approach in their permit renewal applications, therefore, significantly reducing the costs for new monitoring development. Also, we reviewed the reporting and recordkeeping requirements of the Title V permit ` program vis-a-vis those required under the CAM program. We found that, with the exception of sources required to develop a quality improvement plan, sources were meeting the reporting and recordkeeping requirements for CAM by complying with the requirements of the Title V program. We revised some of our assumptions to account for the additional requirements set forth under the CAM rule that are not outlined in the Title V program, while at the same time ensuring that requirements met under the Title V program were not being re-counted in this assessment. Furthermore, in order to reflect projected trends for the next 3 years, we updated some of the formulas used to calculate burden. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

OMB Control Number: 2060–0594. Abstract: This ICR assesses the burden (in hours and dollars) of the 1997 8-hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) Implementation Rule as well as the periodic reporting and record keeping necessary to maintain the rule. The rule was proposed on June 2, 2003, (68 FR 32802) and promulgated in two Phases: Phase 1 published on April 30, 2004, (69 FR 23951) and Phase 2 published on November 29, 2005 (70 FR 71612). The rule includes requirements that involve PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69083 collecting information from states with areas that remain designated nonattainment for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS. These information collection milestones include state submission of an attainment demonstration SIP, a RFP SIP submission, and a RACT SIP. However, not all of the milestones and associated burden and administrative costs estimates apply to every designated nonattainment area. The burden estimated is for six of the thirtyeight non-attainment areas that were reclassified to a higher classification resulting in new SIP revisions required. The remaining thirty-two nonattainment areas have either met the requirements or have their requirements suspended. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: States and regional entities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory as required by the Clean Air Act, Section 110. Estimated number of respondents: 6 (total). Frequency of response: Annual. Total estimated burden: 11,667 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $759,500 (per year), which includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 5,000 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This is due to a number of reasons that include: (1) The burden associated with one remaining nonattainment area that may receive a mandatory reclassification is estimated to be the same as areas completing the initial SIP framework because of the work they must complete to reevaluate databases, emissions inventories, legal authorities, state rule development, publication and public hearing to comply with the standards; (2) EPA’s final rule of May 14, 2012 (77 FR 28423) assigning former subpart 1 ozone nonattainment areas re-designations under subpart 2, resulted in non-attainment areas with additional burden for completing SIP revisions; (3) the number of non-attainment areas has decreased as areas have come into compliance with the standards; and (4) the number of non-attainment areas with SIP revisions required has decreased as areas have either submitted the requirements or the planning E:\FR\FM\18NON1.SGM 18NON1 69084 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 222 / Monday, November 18, 2013 / Notices requirements have been suspended with a Clean Data Determination.

Abstract: This ICR renewal is being submitted for the Air Emission Standards for Tanks, Surface Impoundments and Containers (40 CFR Part 264, Subpart CC and 40 CFR Part 265, Subpart CC), which were promulgated on December 6, 1994. The requirements of this subpart apply to owners and operators of all facilities that treat, store, or dispose of hazardous wastes in tanks, surface impoundments and containers that are subject to subparts I, J or K of these parts, except for Sections 264.1 and 265.1 and those management units identified at Sections 264.1080(b) and 265.1080(b). Also, the requirements of this subpart apply to large quantity generators that manage hazardous wastes in either tanks, or containers (262.34(a)(1)(i and ii)). The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NSPS at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A and any changes or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 264, subpart CC and 40 CFR part 265, subpart CC. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Facilities that treat, store, or dispose of RCRA Subtitle C hazardous waste. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 264, subpart CC and 40 CFR part 265, subpart CC) Estimated number of respondents: 6,209 (total). PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Frequency of response: Occasionally, annually, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 712,293 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $82,092,685 (per year), includes $12,418,000 for operation & maintenance costs annualized capital and no annualized capital/start-up costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the respondent burden hours and costs from the most recently approved ICR. The previous ICR used rounded numbers, while this ICR uses exact values in calculating burden hours. In addition, this ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs. There is also an increase of one response in this ICR due to a correction. The previous ICR did not account for the annual project report for the Sisterville Plant when calculating the total number of responses. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

    EPA ICR Number: 2236.04.
    OMB Control Number: 2060-0594.
    Abstract: This ICR assesses the burden (in hours and dollars) of 
the 1997 8-hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) 
Implementation Rule as well as the periodic reporting and record 
keeping necessary to maintain the rule. The rule was proposed on June 
2, 2003, (68 FR 32802) and promulgated in two Phases: Phase 1 published 
on April 30, 2004, (69 FR 23951) and Phase 2 published on November 29, 
2005 (70 FR 71612). The rule includes requirements that involve 
collecting information from states with areas that remain designated 
non-attainment for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS. These information 
collection milestones include state submission of an attainment 
demonstration SIP, a RFP SIP submission, and a RACT SIP. However, not 
all of the milestones and associated burden and administrative costs 
estimates apply to every designated nonattainment area. The burden 
estimated is for six of the thirty-eight non-attainment areas that were 
reclassified to a higher classification resulting in new SIP revisions 
required. The remaining thirty-two non-attainment areas have either met 
the requirements or have their requirements suspended.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: States and regional entities.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory as required by the 
Clean Air Act, Section 110.
    Estimated number of respondents: 6 (total).
    Frequency of response: Annual.
    Total estimated burden: 11,667 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $759,500 (per year), which includes no 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 5,000 hours in 
the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This is due to a number of reasons that include: (1) 
The burden associated with one remaining non-attainment area that may 
receive a mandatory reclassification is estimated to be the same as 
areas completing the initial SIP framework because of the work they 
must complete to reevaluate databases, emissions inventories, legal 
authorities, state rule development, publication and public hearing to 
comply with the standards; (2) EPA's final rule of May 14, 2012 (77 FR 
28423) assigning former subpart 1 ozone non-attainment areas re-
designations under subpart 2, resulted in non-attainment areas with 
additional burden for completing SIP revisions; (3) the number of non-
attainment areas has decreased as areas have come into compliance with 
the standards; and (4) the number of non-attainment areas with SIP 
revisions required has decreased as areas have either submitted the 
requirements or the planning
