Title: Clean Watersheds Needs Survey (Renewal). Abstract: The Clean Watersheds Needs Survey (CWNS) is required by sections 205(a) and 516(b)(1) of the Clean Water Act (http://www.epa.gov/ owm/mtb/cwns/index.htm). It is a periodic inventory of existing and proposed publicly owned wastewater treatment works (POTWs) and other water pollution control facilities in the United States, as well as an estimate of how many POTWs need to be built. The CWNS is a voluntary, joint effort of EPA and the States. The Survey records cost and technical data associated with POTWs and other water pollution control facilities, existing and proposed, in the United States. The State respondents who provide this information to EPA are State agencies responsible for environmental pollution control. No confidential information is used, nor is sensitive information protected from release under the Public Information Act. EPA achieves national consistency in the final results through the application of uniform guidelines and validation techniques. During the period of this ICR, EPA will not be requiring or asking States to update CWNS information. EPA is planning to keep the CWNS database open for States that voluntarily choose to submit updated information, for their own purposes, between the 2004 and 2008 CWNS data entry periods. EPA will not be requiring or asking States to submit updated data until the 2008 CWNS data entry period, which will be covered under a subsequent ICR. 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 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9. Burden Statement: Should States choose to update CWNS facilities during PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43689 this period, the average burden per respondent per facility updated is 1.55 hours. In previous between-survey periods, five to ten States have elected to update CWNS facility information. Assuming ten states choose to update facilities in this between survey period, with an average of 600 facilities per state and an average of 50% of facilities needing updates every 4 years, the total overall voluntary burden to ten States would be approximate 4,650 hours. 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; 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: State government agencies responsible for water pollution control and sewage treatment. Estimated Number of Respondents: 10. Frequency of Response: Every 4 years (States’ options to update data between cycles). Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 1,550 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $53,816, which includes $0 Capital Expense, $0 Operation and Maintenance, and $53,816 Respondent Labor Costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 6,122 hours in the total annual estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is due to a change in program requirements, as data updates during periods between the 4-year collection cycles are completely at states’ discretion. Dated: July 19, 2005.

    Title: Clean Watersheds Needs Survey (Renewal).
    Abstract: The Clean Watersheds Needs Survey (CWNS) is required by 
sections 205(a) and 516(b)(1) of the Clean Water Act (http://
www.epa.gov/owm/mtb/cwns/index.htm). It is a periodic inventory of 
existing and proposed publicly owned wastewater treatment works (POTWs) 
and other water pollution control facilities in the United States, as 
well as an estimate of how many POTWs need to be built. The CWNS is a 
voluntary, joint effort of EPA and the States. The Survey records cost 
and technical data associated with POTWs and other water pollution 
control facilities, existing and proposed, in the United States. The 
State respondents who provide this information to EPA are State 
agencies responsible for environmental pollution control. No 
confidential information is used, nor is sensitive information 
protected from release under the Public Information Act. EPA achieves 
national consistency in the final results through the application of 
uniform guidelines and validation techniques.
    During the period of this ICR, EPA will not be requiring or asking 
States to update CWNS information. EPA is planning to keep the CWNS 
database open for States that voluntarily choose to submit updated 
information, for their own purposes, between the 2004 and 2008 CWNS 
data entry periods. EPA will not be requiring or asking States to 
submit updated data until the 2008 CWNS data entry period, which will 
be covered under a subsequent ICR.
    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 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9.
    Burden Statement: Should States choose to update CWNS facilities 
during this period, the average burden per respondent per facility 
updated is 1.55 hours. In previous between-survey periods, five to ten 
States have elected to update CWNS facility information. Assuming ten 
states choose to update facilities in this between survey period, with 
an average of 600 facilities per state and an average of 50% of 
facilities needing updates every 4 years, the total overall voluntary 
burden to ten States would be approximate 4,650 hours. 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; 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: State government agencies 
responsible for water pollution control and sewage treatment.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 10.
    Frequency of Response: Every 4 years (States' options to update 
data between cycles).
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 1,550 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $53,816, which includes $0 Capital 
Expense, $0 Operation and Maintenance, and $53,816 Respondent Labor 
Costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 6,122 hours in the 
total annual estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory 
of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is due to a change in program 
requirements, as data updates during periods between the 4-year 
collection cycles are completely at states' discretion.
