Abstract:40 CFR part 63, subpart GGGGG, applies to site remediation activities to cleanup materials containing organics that could be released to the atmosphere as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP). These site remediation activities are conducted at any facility where materials containing organic HAP currently are or have been stored, processed, treated, or otherwise managed at the facility. The types of businesses most likely to be subject to the standard include, but are not limited to: organic liquid storage terminals, petroleum refineries, chemical manufacturing facilities, and manufacturing facilities using organic materials.
The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, and anychanges, or additions to the General Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart GGGGG.
Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time-only report of any physical or operational changes, initial performance tests, and periodic reports and results. Owners or operators 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. Reports, at a minimum, are required semiannually.
Burden Statement:The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 219 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
Respondents/Affected Entities:Site remediation facilities.
Estimated Number of Respondents:286
Frequency of Response:Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden:125,027
Estimated Total Annual Cost:$12,596,594, which includes $12,014,594 in labor costs, no annualized capital/startup costs, and operation and maintenance (O&M) costs of $582,000.
Changes in the Estimates:There is no change in the labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations. First, the regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. Secondly, the growth rate for respondents is very low, negative, or non-existent. Therefore, the labor hours in the previous ICR reflect the current burden to the respondents and are reiterated in this ICR. There is a minor change to the cost figures due to updates in labor rates. The updated labor categories and associated rates result in an increase to total labor cost.
There is also a change in the method of reporting in this ICR. The labor hours and costs are calculated separately for each respondent type: “private sector,” “state, local or tribal governments,” and “federal government”. There is no change in the total respondent burden hours (comprising both industry and federal government respondents).
