Proposed Information Collection Request; Comment Request; Fuel Use Requirements for Great Lake Steamships (Renewal), 37255 [2015-16038]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 125 / Tuesday, June 30, 2015 / Notices Total estimated burden: 80,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $8,020,000 (per year), includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in the total estimated respondent labor burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This decrease is not due to any program changes. Rather, it was due to a discrepancy identified in the previous renewal, in which the number of byproduct plants conducting daily leak inspections and bypass/bleeder stack/ flare system inspections was overestimated. EPA has revised the estimates in this ICR to reflect the appropriate number of by-product plants. The net result of this adjustment was a decrease in respondent burden hours. There is also a small adjustment increase in the number of responses due to a correction. The previous ICR did not account for the notification of reconstruction, notification of battery closure, and malfunction report in calculating the number of responses.
