Pesticide Experimental Use Permit; Receipt of Application; Reopening of Comment Period, 20818 [2018-09777]

Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 20818 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 89 / Tuesday, May 8, 2018 / Notices implement permit programs to ensure that MSWLFs and non-municipal, nonhazardous waste disposal units that receive household hazardous waste or CESQG hazardous waste are in compliance with the revised criteria for the design and operation of nonmunicipal, non-hazardous waste disposal units under 40 CFR part 257, subpart B and MSWLFs under 40 CFR part 258. (40 CFR part 257, subpart B and 40 CFR part 258 are henceforth referred to as the ‘‘revised federal criteria’’.) Section 4005(c) of RCRA further mandates the EPA Administrator to determine the adequacy of state permit programs to ensure owner and/ or operator compliance with the revised federal criteria. A state program that is deemed adequate to ensure compliance may afford flexibility to owners or operators in the approaches they use to meet federal requirements, significantly reducing the burden associated with compliance. In response to the statutory requirement in § 4005(c), EPA developed 40 CFR part 239, commonly referred to as the State Implementation Rule (SIR). The SIR describes the state application and EPA review procedures and defines the elements of an adequate state permit program. The collection of information from the state during the permit program adequacy determination process allows EPA to evaluate whether a program for which approval is requested is appropriate in structure and authority to ensure owner or operator compliance with the revised federal criteria. The SIR does not require the use of a particular application form. Section 239.3 of the SIR, however, requires that all state applications contain the following five components: (1) A transmittal letter requesting permit program approval. (2) A narrative description of the state permit program, including a demonstration that the state’s standards for non-municipal, non-hazardous waste disposal units that receive CESQG hazardous waste are technically comparable to the Part 257, Subpart B criteria and/or that its MSWLF standards are technically comparable to the Part 258 criteria. (3) A legal certification demonstrating that the state has the authority to carry out the program. (4) Copies of state laws, regulations, and guidance that the state believes demonstrate program adequacy. (5) Copies of relevant state-tribal agreements if the state has negotiated with a tribe for the implementation of a permit program for non-municipal, nonhazardous waste disposal units that VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:41 May 07, 2018 Jkt 244001 receive CESQG hazardous waste and/or MSWLFs on tribal lands. The EPA Administrator has delegated the authority to make determinations of adequacy, as contained in the statute, to the EPA Regional Administrator. The appropriate EPA Regional Office, therefore, will use the information provided by each state to determine whether the state’s permit program satisfies the statutory test reflected in the requirements of 40 CFR part 239. In all cases, the information will be analyzed to determine the adequacy of the state’s permit program for ensuring compliance with the federal revised criteria. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this section are States. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory under Section 4005(c) of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) of 1976. Estimated number of respondents: 12. Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 2,405 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $135,315 (per year) All costs are labor costs, there are no capital/start-up or O&M costs associated with this ICR. Changes in estimates: There is no change of 2,405 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This is a continuation of states revising or updating their state programs. Dated: April 24, 2018. Barnes Johnson, Director, Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery.
