    Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) apply to each 
affected facility at any grain terminal elevator or any grain storage 
elevator. The facilities are each truck unloading station, truck 
loading station, barge and ship loading station, railcar loading 
station, railcar unloading station, grain dryer and all grain handling 
operations that commenced construction, modification or reconstruction 
after August 3, 1978. Owners or operators of the affected facilities 
must make a one-time-only report of the date of construction or 
reconstruction, notification of the actual date of startup, 
notification of any physical or operational change to existing facility 
that may increase the rate of emission of the regulated pollutant, 
notification of initial performance test; and results of initial 
performance test. Owners or operators are also required to maintain 
records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or 
malfunction, or any period during which the monitoring system is 
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Grain elevator operations.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, 
subpart DD).
    Estimated number of respondents: 200 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially.
    Total estimated burden: 460 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 
5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $46,000 (per year). There are no annualized 
capital/startup or O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease in the respondent and 
Agency burden in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is not due 
to program changes. The burden and cost decrease because we corrected 
the burden estimates by removing the annual summary report line item to 
more accurately reflect the Subpart DD regulatory requirements. The 
current Subpart DD NSPS does not impose any ongoing monitoring or 
reporting requirement.
