Download as PDF 85950 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 229 / Tuesday, November 29, 2016 / Notices Procedural Requirements Environmental Compliance In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq., the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for implementing NEPA, 40 CFR parts 1500 through 1508, and the Integrated DOE NEPA Implementing Procedures, 10 CFR part 1021, WAPA has determined this action is categorically excluded from the preparation of an environmental assessment or an EIS. Determination Under Executive Order 12866 WAPA has an exemption from centralized regulatory review under Executive Order 12866; accordingly, no clearance of this notice by the Office of Management and Budget is required. Regulatory Flexibility Analysis The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., requires a Federal agency to perform a regulatory flexibility analysis whenever the agency is required by law to publish a general notice of proposed rulemaking for any proposed rule, unless the agency can certify that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. In defining the term ‘‘rule,’’ the RFA specifies that a ‘‘rule’’ does not include ‘‘a rule of particular applicability relating to rates [and] services . . . or to valuations, costs or accounting, or practices relating to such rates [and] services . . . .’’ 5 U.S.C. 601. WAPA has determined that this action relates to rates or services offered by WAPA and, therefore, is not a rule within the purview of the RFA. Dated: November 18, 2016. Mark A. Gabriel, Administrator.

ACTION: Notice of final order on petition to object to state operating permit. AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:48 Nov 28, 2016 The EPA Administrator signed an Order, dated November 10, 2016, granting petition to object to Clean Air Act (CAA) title V operating permit issued by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) to the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Bull Run facility located in Clinton, Anderson County, Tennessee. This Order constitutes a final action on the petition submitted by Sierra Club and Environmental Integrity Project (Petitioners) and received by EPA on September 29, 2015. ADDRESSES: Copies of the Order, the petition, and all pertinent information relating thereto are on file at the following location: EPA Region 4; Air, Pesticides and Toxics Management Division; 61 Forsyth Street SW.; Atlanta, Georgia 30303–8960. The Order is also available electronically at the following address: https://www.epa.gov/sites/ production/files/2016-11/documents/ tva_bull_run_order_granting_petition_ to_object_to_permit_.pdf. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Art Hofmeister, Air Permits Section, EPA Region 4, at (404) 562–9115 or hofmeister.art@epa.gov. SUMMARY: Jkt 241001 The CAA affords EPA a 45-day period to review and, as appropriate, the authority to object to operating permits proposed by state permitting authorities under title V of the CAA, 42 U.S.C. 7661–7661f. Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA and 40 CFR 70.8(d) authorize any person to petition the EPA Administrator to object to a title V operating permit within 60 days after the expiration of EPA’s 45day review period if EPA has not objected on its own initiative. Petitions must be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the comment period or the grounds for the issues arose after this period. Petitioners submitted a petition regarding the aforementioned TVA Bull Run facility, requesting that EPA object to the CAA title V operating permit (#01–0009/567519). Petitioners alleged that the permit was not consistent with the CAA because it lacks sufficient monitoring to assure compliance with the opacity limit established pursuant to Tennessee Comprehensive Rules & Regulations 1200–03–05–.01. On November 10, 2016, the Administrator issued an Order granting the petition. The Order explains EPA’s rationale for granting the petition.

This is a proposed extension of the ICR, which is currently approved through November 30, 2016. Public comments were previously requested via the Federal Register (81 FR 65634) on September 23, 2016 during a 60-day comment period. This notice allows for an additional 30 days for public comments. A fuller description of the ICR is given below, including its estimated burden and cost to the public. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

The telephone number for the Docket Center is 202–566–1744. For additional information, visit http:// www.epa.gov/dockets. Abstract: For this ICR, EPA is seeking a revision to an existing package with a three year extension. Title II of the Clean Air Act, (42 U.S.C. 7521 et seq.; CAA), charges the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with issuing certificates of conformity for those engines that comply with applicable emission standards. Such a certificate must be issued before engines may be legally introduced into commerce. Under this ICR, EPA collects information necessary to (1) issue certificates of compliance with emission statements, and (2) verify compliance with various programs and regulatory provisions pertaining to marine compression-ignition engines with a specific engine displacement at or above 30 liters per cylinder, also referred to as Category 3 engines. To apply for a certificate of conformity, manufacturers are required to submit descriptions of their planned production engines, including detailed descriptions of emission control systems and test data. This information is organized by ‘‘engine family’’ groups expected to have similar emission characteristics. There are recordkeeping requirements of up to eight years. The Act also mandates EPA to verify that manufacturers have successfully translated their certified prototypes into mass produced engines, and that these engines comply with emission standards throughout their useful lives. Under the Production Line Testing Program (‘‘PLT Program’’), manufacturers of Category 3 engines are VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:48 Nov 28, 2016 Jkt 241001 required to test each engine at the sea trial of the vessel in which the engine is installed or within the first 300 hours of operation, whichever comes first. This self-audit program allows manufacturers to monitor compliance and minimize the cost of correcting errors through early detection. In addition, owners and operators of marine vessels with Category 3 engines must record certain information and send minimal annual notifications to EPA to show that engine maintenance and adjustments have not caused engines to be noncompliant. From time to time, EPA may test in-use engines to verify compliance with emission standards throughout the marine engine’s useful life and may ask for information about the engine family to be tested. Proprietary information is kept confidential in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), EPA regulations at 40 CFR parts 2 and 1042.915, and class determinations issued by EPA’s Office of General Counsel. Non-confidential business information may be disclosed as requested under FOIA. That information may be used by trade associations, environmental groups, and the public. Most of the information is collected in electronic format and stored in CD’s databases. Form Numbers: 5900–90 (Annual Production Report); 5900–297 (PLT CumSum Report); 5900–298 (PLT NonCumSum Report); 5900–124 (Application for Certification).
