Environmental Impacts Statements; Notice of Availability, 82386 [2010-32976]

Download as PDF 82386 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 250 / Thursday, December 30, 2010 / Notices standards are exceeded. (See CWA section 406(b)(3)(A) and the National Beach Guidance and Required Performance Criteria for Grants.) Grant recipients must submit to EPA the monitoring and notification reports for any beach season by January 31 of the year following the beach season (68 FR 15446, 15449 (March 31, 2003)). For the 2011 beach season, the deadline for states to submit complete and correct reports is January 31, 2012. In addition, grant recipients must report to EPA, latitude, longitude and mileage data on (1) the extent of beaches and similar points of public access adjacent to coastal recreation waters, and (2) the extent of those beaches that are monitored. EPA first established this requirement in the Federal Register notice for the fiscal year 2003 grants (68 FR 15446, 15447 (March 31, 2003)). EPA is continuing this requirement in order to capture any changes states, tribes, and local governments may make to their beach monitoring and notification programs. States, tribes, and local governments must report to EPA any changes to either the extent of their beaches or similar points of access, or to the extent of their beaches that are monitored. As new predictive tools and methods of measuring water quality become more widespread, the ability to provide timely information to the public will increase. Coupled with improvements to the data submission process, it will be easier for states and EPA to make notification and water quality data available to the public. Therefore, EPA is considering requiring states to report to EPA more frequently than annually in the future. The Agency intends to review state and federal agency capabilities, resource constraints, and the impact of more frequent reporting, and make any necessary changes to the appropriate section of the National Beach Guidance and Performance Criteria. Any such changes would not affect reporting for the 2011 beach season. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES What regulations apply to the award and administration of these grants?
