Proposed Issuance of NPDES General Permits for Wastewater Lagoon Systems Located in Indian Country in EPA Region 8, 37255-37257 [2015-16042]

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.

EPA will consider the PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 37255 comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval.

Abstract: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) adopted requirements for marine vessels operating in and around U.S. territorial waters to use reduced-sulfur diesel fuel. This requirement does not apply for steamships, but it would apply for steamships that are converted to run on diesel engines. A regulatory provision allows vessel owners to qualify for a waiver from the fuel-use requirements for a defined period for such converted vessels. EPA uses the data to oversee compliance with regulatory requirements, including communicating with affected companies and answering questions from the public or other industry participants regarding the waiver in question. Form Numbers: None. Estimated number of respondents: 2 (total). Frequency of response: Once Currently approved estimated burden: 14 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b) Currently approved estimated cost: $988 (per year), includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: The final ICR will address all changes in the estimates over the past three years. Courtney Kerwin, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Coverage under the general permits will be limited to lagoon systems treating primarily domestic wastewater and will include two categories of coverage; discharging lagoons (DIS), and lagoons expected to have no discharge VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:34 Jun 29, 2015 Jkt 235001 (NODIS). The effluent limitations for discharging lagoons are based on the Federal Secondary Treatment Regulation (40 CFR part 133) and best professional judgement (BPJ). If more stringent and/or additional effluent limitations are considered necessary to comply with applicable water quality standards, etc., those limitations and their basis are explained in the permit fact sheets and will be imposed by written notification to the permittee. Lagoon systems under the no discharge category are required to have no discharge except in accordance with the bypass provisions of the permit.

Where the Tribes have Clean Water Act section 401(a)(1) certification authority; Flathead Indian Reservation, the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, and the Ute Mountain Indian Reservation; EPA has requested certification that the permits comply with the applicable provisions of the Clean Water Act and tribal water quality standards. IV. Other Legal Requirements Economic Impact (Executive Order 12866): EPA has determined that the issuance of these general permits is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under the terms of Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and is therefore not subject to formal OMB review prior to proposal. Paperwork Reduction Act: EPA has reviewed the requirements imposed on regulated facilities in these proposed general permits under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, 44 U.S.C. 501, et seq. The information collection requirements of these permits have already been approved by the Office of Management and Budget in submissions made for the NPDES permit program under the provisions of the Clean Water Act. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act: Section 201 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA), Public Law 104–4, generally requires federal agencies to assess the effects of their ‘‘regulatory actions’’ defined to be the same as ‘‘rules’’ subject to the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) on tribal, state, local governments and the private sector. Since the permit proposed today is an adjudication, it is not subject to the RFA and is therefore not subject to the requirements of the UMRA. Authority: Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251, et seq.

IV. Other Legal Requirements

    Economic Impact (Executive Order 12866): EPA has determined that 
the issuance of these general permits is not a ``significant regulatory 
action'' under the terms of Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 
4, 1993) and is therefore not subject to formal OMB review prior to 
proposal.
    Paperwork Reduction Act: EPA has reviewed the requirements imposed 
on regulated facilities in these proposed general permits under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, 44 U.S.C. 501, et seq. The information 
collection requirements of these permits have already been approved by 
the Office of Management and Budget in submissions made for the NPDES 
permit program under the provisions of the Clean Water Act.
    Unfunded Mandates Reform Act: Section 201 of the Unfunded Mandates 
Reform Act (UMRA), Public Law 104-4, generally requires federal 
agencies to assess the effects of their ``regulatory actions'' defined 
to be the same as ``rules'' subject to the Regulatory Flexibility Act 
(RFA) on tribal, state, local governments and the private sector. Since 
the permit proposed today is an adjudication, it is not subject to the 
RFA and is therefore not subject to the requirements of the UMRA.

    Authority: Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251, et seq.

    Dated: June 9, 2015.
Darcy O'Connor,
Acting Assistant Regional Administrator, Office of Partnerships and 
Regulatory Assistance.
