Download as PDF 18022 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 82 / Monday, April 29, 2019 / Notices System and the Projects and Benefits Reporting System. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Entities affected by this action are states and local governments. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Required to obtain or retain a benefit per the Safe Drinking Water Act Section 1452(g)(1). Estimated number of respondents: 379 state and local respondents (total). Frequency of response: Varies by requirement (i.e., quarterly, semiannually, and annually). Total estimated burden: 88,793 hours (per year) for state and local respondents. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $3,355,516 (per year) for state and local respondents. Changes in estimates: There is a net decrease in total respondent burden hours from the previous ICR. This is due to burden calculated with alternating 25 states and 26 states each year producing biennial reports. Since ICR’s capture 3year timeframes, some ICRs will have more years of 26 state reports then other. There is also a correction to the calculation of EPA burden hours. These have been increased to more accurately align EPA review of audits with State burden of audits, with both tables assuming each state will audit every year.

Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), for which Construction, Re-construction, or Modification Commenced after May 14, PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2007 (40 CFR part 60, subpart Ja) apply to the following affected facilities in petroleum refineries: Fluid catalytic cracking units (FCCU), fluid coking units (FCU), delayed coking units, fuel gas combustion devices (FGCD), process heaters, flares and sulfur recovery plants. Except for flares, these regulations apply to affected facilities at existing and new petroleum refineries that are constructed, reconstructed, or modified after May 14, 2007. The provisions of this subpart apply to flares which commence construction, modification or reconstruction after June 24, 2008. New facilities include those that commenced construction, modification or reconstruction after the date of proposal. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart Ja. In general, all NSPS 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 NSPS. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Petroleum refineries constructed, reconstructed, or modified after May 14, 2007. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart Ja). Estimated number of respondents: 150 (total). Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 355,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $143,000,000 (per year), which includes $102,000,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: The adjustment increase in burden from the most recently-approved ICR is due to an increase in the estimates for the number of existing facilities located at petroleum refineries that become subject to the requirements of Subpart Ja because they are newly constructed, reconstructed or modified. The previous ICR renewal estimated that approximately 54 facilities with 2 CEMS each would become affected facilities subject to the rule each year. In this renewal ICR, that estimate has been increased to 100 facilities with 3 CEMS/ CPMS each. The increase in burden is E:\FR\FM\29APN1.SGM 29APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 82 / Monday, April 29, 2019 / Notices due to an increase in the estimates for the number of new, reconstructed, or modified facilities that are required to conduct initial performance tests on the equipment and the emissions and parameter monitors (CEMS and CPMS). For each startup and test of new, modified, or reconstructed equipment, there are numerous notifications and reports that must be submitted and reviewed. The adjustment increase in burden also reflects an increase in the number of CEMS and CPMS monitors on existing affected facilities that require routine performance audits (Relative Accuracy Audits or Cylinder Gas Audits) and relative accuracy testing; these costs were not included in the prior ICR. The increase in burden also reflects an increase in the estimates for the costs of new equipment and the required CEMS/CPMS monitors. The previous ICR renewal did not include the capital/ startup costs for new, modified, or reconstructed equipment/process lines. This ICR estimates that, out of 100 facilities per year that become subject to the rule due to construction, modification, or reconstruction, 50 of these affected facilities per year will incur significant capital/startup costs. The increase in capital and O&M costs from the most recently approved ICR also reflects an increase in the estimates for the number of existing facilities located at petroleum refineries that are already subject to the requirements of Subpart Ja. The O&M costs for the CEMS and CPMS monitors on these existing facilities (280 flares and 600 other process units) were not accounted for in the prior ICR and are significant. The estimates of O&M costs for CEMS monitors have also been increased from approximately $15,000 per year to $25,000 per year based on comments provided by industry.

Abstract: The Emission Guidelines and Compliance Times for Small Municipal Waste Combustion Units Constructed on or Before August 30, 1999 were originally promulgated in December 1995, but were vacated by the Federal Court in March 1997. Subsequently, the Emission Guidelines were re-proposed on August 30, 1999, and promulgated on December 6, 2000. The Emission Guidelines regulate organics (dioxin/furans), metals (cadmium, lead, mercury), particulate matter, and acid gases (hydrogen chloride, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides) for small Municipal Waste Combustion (MWC) units. Small MWC units are MWC units with capacities to combust greater than 35 tons per day (tpd) and less than 250 tons per day (tpd) of municipal solid waste. The Emission Guidelines contain monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements that are to be included in state plans. This Information Collection Request (ICR) identifies the burden for States and U.S. territories to develop and implement State plans, and the burden for small MWCs imposed by these State plans. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart BBBB. In general, all Emission Guidelines 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.

    Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), for which 
Construction, Re-construction, or Modification Commenced after May 14, 
2007 (40 CFR part 60, subpart Ja) apply to the following affected 
facilities in petroleum refineries: Fluid catalytic cracking units 
(FCCU), fluid coking units (FCU), delayed coking units, fuel gas 
combustion devices (FGCD), process heaters, flares and sulfur recovery 
plants. Except for flares, these regulations apply to affected 
facilities at existing and new petroleum refineries that are 
constructed, reconstructed, or modified after May 14, 2007. The 
provisions of this subpart apply to flares which commence construction, 
modification or reconstruction after June 24, 2008. New facilities 
include those that commenced construction, modification or 
reconstruction after the date of proposal. This information is being 
collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart Ja.
    In general, all NSPS 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 NSPS.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Petroleum refineries constructed, 
reconstructed, or modified after May 14, 2007.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, 
subpart Ja).
    Estimated number of respondents: 150 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually.
    Total estimated burden: 355,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $143,000,000 (per year), which includes 
$102,000,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & 
maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: The adjustment increase in burden from 
the most recently-approved ICR is due to an increase in the estimates 
for the number of existing facilities located at petroleum refineries 
that become subject to the requirements of Subpart Ja because they are 
newly constructed, reconstructed or modified. The previous ICR renewal 
estimated that approximately 54 facilities with 2 CEMS each would 
become affected facilities subject to the rule each year. In this 
renewal ICR, that estimate has been increased to 100 facilities with 3 
CEMS/CPMS each. The increase in burden is

[[Page 18023]]

due to an increase in the estimates for the number of new, 
reconstructed, or modified facilities that are required to conduct 
initial performance tests on the equipment and the emissions and 
parameter monitors (CEMS and CPMS). For each startup and test of new, 
modified, or reconstructed equipment, there are numerous notifications 
and reports that must be submitted and reviewed. The adjustment 
increase in burden also reflects an increase in the number of CEMS and 
CPMS monitors on existing affected facilities that require routine 
performance audits (Relative Accuracy Audits or Cylinder Gas Audits) 
and relative accuracy testing; these costs were not included in the 
prior ICR.
    The increase in burden also reflects an increase in the estimates 
for the costs of new equipment and the required CEMS/CPMS monitors. The 
previous ICR renewal did not include the capital/startup costs for new, 
modified, or reconstructed equipment/process lines. This ICR estimates 
that, out of 100 facilities per year that become subject to the rule 
due to construction, modification, or reconstruction, 50 of these 
affected facilities per year will incur significant capital/startup 
costs.
    The increase in capital and O&M costs from the most recently 
approved ICR also reflects an increase in the estimates for the number 
of existing facilities located at petroleum refineries that are already 
subject to the requirements of Subpart Ja. The O&M costs for the CEMS 
and CPMS monitors on these existing facilities (280 flares and 600 
other process units) were not accounted for in the prior ICR and are 
significant. The estimates of O&M costs for CEMS monitors have also 
been increased from approximately $15,000 per year to $25,000 per year 
based on comments provided by industry.
