Total estimated cost: $460,000 (per year), which includes $320,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: The increase in burden from the mostrecently approved ICR is due to accounting for the assumption that all sources will spend one hour annually reviewing and understanding the rule requirements. Previously, the assumption was that only new sources would incur this burden. There is a small decrease in O&M cost in this ICR due to rounding of all calculated values to three significant digits. In addition, there is an increase of two annual responses due to a minor correction. The previous ICR did not account for notifications of operational changes in calculating the number of responses.
