Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NESHAP (40 CFR part 63, subpart A), and any changes, or additions to the Provisions are specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart HHHHH. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit initial notification reports, VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:28 Jul 25, 2016 Jkt 238001 performance tests, and periodic reports and results. Owners or operators 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. Reports, at a minimum, are required semiannually. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Facilities that manufacture a miscellaneous coating. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart HHHHH). Estimated number of respondents: 44 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 55,800 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $6,690,000 (per year), which includes $928,000 in either annualized capital/startup or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in respondent burden in this ICR from the most recently approved ICR. This is due to a decrease in the respondent universe. For this ICR, we have updated the estimated number of respondents based on information obtained from industry consultation. This results in a decrease in the labor hours, O&M costs, and total number of responses. Courtney Kerwin, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.

The 1987 amendments added Title VI to the CWA, enabling EPA to provide grants to all 50 states and Puerto Rico to capitalize CWSRFs. The CWSRFs can provide loans and other forms of assistance for a wide array of projects, including construction of wastewater treatments facilities, green infrastructure projects, agricultural best management practices, and water and energy efficiency improvements. Eligible borrowers of CWSRF funding range from municipalities to nonprofit organizations and other private entities.

Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b) Total estimated cost: $6,074,741 (per year), including $2,928,100 in non-labor costs. Changes in Estimates: This renewal adds two information collections activities not included in the previous version of the ICR. Specifically, the renewal includes the additional burden associated with the EPA requirement that the CWSRFs submit data into the CWNIMS and CBR databases on a recurring basis. The renewal also reflects the additional burden related to the recently released public awareness policy, directing CWSRF borrowers that receive federal funds to publicize EPA’s role in funding the projects. Though these information collection activities add additional burden, the total estimated reporting burden under this renewal is significantly lower compared to the previously approved ICR. The estimate of the annual burden has been decreased by 748,471 hours while the total annual cost burden has been decreased by $17,744,006. This VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:28 Jul 25, 2016 Jkt 238001 significant revision is due to the removal of the burden associated with CWSRF applications and ongoing ARRA reporting.
