SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    Estuary habitat restoration project information (e.g., location, 
habitat type, goals, status, monitoring information) is collected in 
order to populate a restoration project database mandated by the 
Estuary Restoration Act (ERA) of 2000. The Estuary Restoration Act 
Database (ERAD) contains information for estuary habitat restoration 
projects funded through the ERA as well as non-ERA project data that 
meet quality control requirements and data standards established under 
the Act. The database provides information to improve restoration 
methods, provides the basis for required reports to Congress, and 
tracks estuary habitat acreage restored. It is accessible to the public 
via the Internet for data queries and project reports. Recipients of 
ERA funds are

[[Page 6039]]

required to submit specific information on habitat restoration projects 
into the ERAD database through an interactive Web site available over 
the Internet. The projects that are not funded through the ERA can be 
voluntarily entered into the database by project managers. Other 
federal agency and private grant programs may also require recipients 
to enter project information in the ERAD database.

II. Method of Collection

    Project managers will electronically submit estuary restoration 
project information via NOAA's Estuary Restoration Act Database Web 
site (https://neri.noaa.gov/). The Web site contains a user-friendly 
data entry interface for project managers to enter and submit project 
information to the ERAD database. The data entry interface consists of 
a series of screens, containing several pull-down menus and text boxes, 
where users can enter specific project information (e.g. location, 
acreage restored, contacts, monitoring information). To facilitate the 
collection of information through the data entry interface, NOAA 
Fisheries provides worksheets containing database fields that can be 
downloaded and printed from the Web site. These worksheets can be used 
by project managers to guide information collection, and can then serve 
as a reference as project managers enter project information through 
the Web site. The reporting forms are also available in paper format to 
be sent to project managers as necessary.
