Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Coal- and Oil-Fired Electric Utility Steam Generating Units (40 CFR part 63, subpart UUUUU) apply to each individual or group of two or more new, reconstructed, or existing electric utility steam generating units (EGUs) within a contiguous area and under common control. An EGU is defined as a fossil fuel-fired combustion unit of more than 25 megawatts electric (MWe) that serves a generator that produces electricity for sale, or a fossil fuel-fired unit that cogenerates steam and electricity and supplies more than one-third of its potential electric output capacity and more than 25 MWe output to any utility power distribution system for sale. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 00:00 Dec 21, 2018 Jkt 247001 affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart UUUUU. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Owners and operators of coal- and oilfired EGUs. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR 63, Subpart UUUUU). Estimated number of respondents: 322 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 284,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $132,000,000 (per year), which includes $104,000,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This change is not due to any program changes. The overall decrease in the burden and cost estimates occurred due to more accurate estimates of existing and anticipated new sources. Additionally, there is an adjustment increase in the capital/start-up and O&M costs from the previous ICR. The prior ICR inadvertently removed O&M costs for existing sources, while this ICR reincorporates O&M costs for existing respondents. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

municipal waste combustor unit capacity greater than 225 megagrams per 
day of municipal solid waste. In general, all NSPS standards require 
initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the

maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, 
shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or

    Changes in the estimates: There is an increase in the respondent 
burdens from the most recent ICR. The adjustments are due to a change 
in the number of sources subject to each Subpart, which was revised to 
reflect more recent information obtained through the Agency's research 
within the MWC sector.
