Information Collection Request Submitted to OMB for Review and Approval; Comment Request; RadNet (Renewal), 65382-65383 [2019-25763]

Download as PDF 65382 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 229 / Wednesday, November 27, 2019 / Notices CFR part 63, subpart VVVV) apply to both existing and new boat manufacturing facilities that are a major source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions. This regulation covers resin and gel coat operations at fiberglass boat manufacturers, paint and coating operations at aluminum boat manufacturers, and carpet and fabric adhesive operations at all boat manufacturers. Air toxics are released during application and curing from the resins, gel coats, adhesives, coating, and solvents used in boat manufacturing. New facilities include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. The EPA proposed revised standards to the NESHAP for Boat Manufacturing on May 17, 2019 (84 FR 22642); however, the proposed amendments have not been finalized; and therefore, the ‘Burden’ reflected in this ICR does not consider ‘burden’ from the proposed amendments, but is based on the existing standards. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart VVVV. 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: Boat manufacturing facilities. Respondent’s Obligation To Respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart VVVV). Estimated Number of Respondents: 93 (total). Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually. Total Estimated Burden: 21,100 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total Estimated Cost: $2,450,000 (per year), which includes $0 for annualized capital and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: The decrease in burden from the mostrecently approved ICR is due to a decrease in the number of respondents subject to these standards. This decrease is not due to any program changes. This ICR, by in large, reflects the on-going burden and costs for existing facilities. Additionally, this ICR removes operation and maintenance costs which VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:21 Nov 26, 2019 Jkt 250001 were included in the most-recently approved ICR for one source using addon controls. Based on a recent inventory, at this time all facilities are estimated to comply with the rule using compliant materials and no facilities operate add-on controls.

II. Background The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or the Agency) is announcing the availability of, and soliciting public comment on, this proposed action. Initially, the EPA approved the Sandia National Laboratories’ (SNL) remotehandled transuranic waste characterization program in November 2011 for a limited duration, allowing the site to ship waste to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) for disposal (EPA Docket No. A–98–49; II–A4–155). In May 2014, the Department of Energy’s Carlsbad Field Office informed the EPA that SNL had identified additional remote-handled transuranic debris waste requiring a new baseline inspection in accordance with 40 CFR 194.8. The EPA conducted this second baseline inspection in two phases. During the first phase, the EPA observed waste characterization activities while onsite at SNL in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and concurrently interviewed cognizant personnel offsite in Denver, Colorado, on June 24–25, 2014. In the second phase of the baseline inspection, the Agency reviewed waste characterization records offsite from April–July 2019 in Washington, DC. The EPA’s report documenting the inspection results and proposed baseline approval is available for review in the public dockets listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. The DOE operates the WIPP facility near Carlsbad in southeastern New Mexico as a deep geologic repository for disposal of defense-related transuranic (TRU) radioactive waste. TRU waste contains more than 100 nanocuries of alpha-emitting TRU isotopes, with halflives greater than twenty years, per gram of waste. Much of the existing TRU waste, which may also be contaminated with hazardous chemicals, consists of items contaminated during the production of nuclear weapons, such as debris waste (rags, equipment, tools) and solid waste (sludges, soil).
