    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1071.10, OMB Control Number 2060-0028.
    ICR Status: This ICR is schedule to expire on October 31, 2010. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor 
the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently 
valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations 
in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when 
approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by 
publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such 
as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The 
display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is 
consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
    Abstract: The New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) for Stationary 
Gas Turbines (40 CFR part 60, subpart GG) were proposed on October 3, 
1977, and promulgated on September 10, 1979.
    Owners and operators of stationary gas turbines must submit a one-
time-only notification of construction/reconstruction, modification, 
and startup date, initial performance test date, physical or 
operational changes, and demonstration of a continuous monitoring 
system. They also must provide a report on initial performance test 
result, monitoring results, and any excess emissions. Records must be 
maintained of: Startups, shutdowns, and malfunctions; periods when the 
continuous monitoring system is inoperative; sulfur and nitrogen 
content of the fuel; fuel to water ratio; rate of fuel consumption; and 
ambient conditions. Semiannual reports are also required.
    Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall 
maintain a file of these measurements, retain the file for at least two 
years following the date of such measurements, and maintain reports and 
records. Performance test reports are required as this is the Agency's 
record of a source's initial capability to comply with the emission 
standard, and they serve as a record of the operating conditions under 
which compliance was achieved.
    All reports are sent to the delegated state or local authority. In 
the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are 
sent directly to the EPA regional office. This information is being 
collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart GG, as 
authorized in sections 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The 
required information consists of emissions data and other information 
that have been determined to be private.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB Control Number. The OMB Control Numbers for EPA's 
regulations are list in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, and are 
identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information are estimated to average 64 
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 purpose of 
collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and 
maintaining, information, and disclosing and providing information. All 
existing ways will have to adjust to comply with any previously 
applicable instructions and requirements that 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: Stationary gas turbines.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 535.
    Frequency of Response: Initially and semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 68,447.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $6,474,328, which includes $6,474,328 
in labor costs exclusively, with neither capital/startup costs nor any 
operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no increase in the number of 
affected facilities or the number of responses compared to the previous 
    There is however, an increase in the estimated labor burden hours 
and cost as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved 
Burdens. This increase is not due to any program changes. The change in 
the labor burden hours and cost estimates has occurred because the 
previous ICR did not reflect the managerial and clerical burden. This 
renewal package includes those costs. We also updated the labor rates, 
which resulted in an increase in labor costs.
