    Abstract: Section 3005 of Subtitle C of RCRA requires treatment, 
storage or disposal facilities (TSDFs) to obtain a permit. To obtain 
the permit, the TSDFs must submit an application describing the 
facility's operation. There are two parts to the RCRA permit 
application--Part A and Part B. Part A defines the processes to be used 
for treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous wastes; the design 
capacity of such processes; and the specific hazardous wastes to be 
handled at the facility. Part B requires detailed site specific 
information such as geologic, hydrologic, and engineering data. In the 
event that permit modifications are proposed by the applicant or EPA, 
modifications must conform to the requirements under Sections 3004 and 
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Business or other for-profit; as 
well as State, Local, or Tribal governments.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (RCRA 3005).
    Estimated number of respondents: 67.
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Total estimated burden: 23,669 hours per year. Burden is defined at 
5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $3,996,222 (per year), includes $2,791,804 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is decrease of 9,591 hours in the 
total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This decrease is due to the smaller number of affected
