Abstract: This rule applies to all facilities that pickle steel using hydrochloric acid or regenerate hydrochloric acid, and are major sources or are part of a facility that is a major source. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They 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. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all affected facilities subject to NESHAP. Any owner/operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least five years following the date of such measurements, maintenance reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state or local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are sent directly to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional office. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Steel pickling, hydrochloric acid process and regeneration facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory. Estimated number of respondents: 100 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 35,100 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $3,530,000 (per year), includes $10,600 annualized PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: The increase in burden and cost from the most recently approved ICR is due to an adjustment. It is not due to any program changes. During the 2012 RTR, EPA did not add additional requirements, other than reporting performance test results through the WebFIRE interface if the test methods used are those supported by the Electronic Reporting Tool (ERT). However, we updated the estimated number of average number of respondents subject to Subpart CCC from 72 to 100. The increase in the number of facilities results in an overall increase in the respondent and Agency burden and in O&M costs. Courtney Kerwin, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.

ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the final updated recommended ambient water quality criteria for the protection of human health for ninety-four chemical pollutants to reflect the latest scientific information and implementation of existing EPA policies found in Methodology for Deriving Ambient Water Quality Criteria for the Protection of Human Health (2000). The EPA issued the draft updated human health criteria on May 13, 2014 and accepted written views from the public until August 13, 2014. The EPA prepared responses to those public comments. The EPA’s recommended ambient water quality criteria for the protection of human health provide technical information for states and authorized tribes to establish water quality standards (i.e., criteria) to protect human health under the Clean Water Act. These final 2015 updated section 304(a) human health criteria recommendations supersede EPA’s previous recommendations.
