Download as PDF 51458 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 197 / Thursday, October 11, 2018 / Notices and state or tribal requests for dispute resolution under CWA section 518(e). This ICR also covers periodic requests to states and tribes for voluntary WQS information, and for voluntary participation in workgroups, to ensure efficient and effective administration of the WQS program and further cooperative federalism. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: States, the District of Columbia, territories, authorized tribes with EPA approved Water Quality Standards, tribal estimated to apply for TAS to administer the WQS program; and dischargers located in the Great Lakes watershed. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory, required to obtain or retain benefits pursuant to the WQS regulation or voluntary. Estimated number of respondents: 376. Frequency of response: Once every three years; on occasion; once. Total estimated burden: 505,387 hours per year. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $23,017,849 per year, including $22,754,329 of labor costs and $263,520 of annualized operation and maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 235,640 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the total burden currently approved by OMB for all three ICRs. This is due to adjustments made to the EPA burden estimates based on experience gained since the previous ICRs were approved (e.g., using more realistic estimates of the number of WQS variance actions to be submitted annually).

Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for the Generic Maximum Achievable Control Technology (GMACT) Standards published at (40 CFR part 63, subpart YY) apply to existing and new carbon black (CB), cyanide (CY), ethylene (ET), and spandex (SP) facilities that would be subject to the major source provisions specified under the GMACT NESHAP. New facilities include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They 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. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all affected facilities subject to NESHAP. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Carbon black production, cyanide production, ethylene production, and spandex production facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart YY). Estimated number of respondents: 61 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 41,800 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $4,930,000 (per year), which includes $351,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation and maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 61 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. The adjustment increase in burden from the most-recently approved ICR is the addition of burden hours to account for the time spent by existing facilities to re-familiarize themselves annually with the rule requirements.
