ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 2234.01; OMB Control No. 2040-new. ICR Status: This ICR is for a new information collection activity. 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 title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The purpose of this information collection is to identify the infrastructure needs of community public water systems for the 20-year period from January 2007 through December 2027. EPA’s Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water (OGWDW) will collect these data to comply with Sections 1452(h) and 1452(i)(4) of the Safe Drinking Water Act (42 U.S.C. 300j–12). EPA will use a questionnaire to collect capital investment need information from large (serving more than 100,000 people) and medium (serving more than 3,300 people but less than 100,000) community water systems. The questionnaire will also be used by EPA survey teams in visits to 400 to 600 statistically-selected small (serving less than 3,300 people) community water systems to ascertain their infrastructure needs. Participation in the survey is voluntary. The data PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 from the questionnaires will provide EPA with a basis for estimating the nationwide infrastructure needs of community water systems. Also, as mandated by Section 1452(a)(1) (D)(ii) of the Safe Drinking Water Act, EPA uses the results of the latest survey to allocate Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) monies to the States. Under the allotment formula, each State receives a grant of the annual DWSRF appropriation in proportion to its share of the total national need—with the proviso that each State receives at least 1 percent of the total funds available. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 7.62 hours per response for Local Government Owned Water Systems; 5.68 hours per response for Privately Owned Water Systems; 6.72 hours per response for State Government Owned Water Systems; and 18.7 hours per response for State and U.S. Territories Water Agencies. 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 which have subsequently changed; 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: Local Government Owned Water Systems, Privately Owned Water Systems, State Government Owned Water Systems, and State and U.S. Territories Water Agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,193. Frequency of Response: 0.33 times per year. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 15,343.

    ICR Status: This ICR is for a new information collection activity. 
An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to

    Abstract: The purpose of this information collection is to identify 
the infrastructure needs of community public water systems for the 20-
year period from January 2007 through December 2027. EPA's Office of 
Ground Water and Drinking Water (OGWDW) will collect these data to 
comply with Sections 1452(h) and 1452(i)(4) of the Safe Drinking Water 
Act (42 U.S.C. 300j-12). EPA will use a questionnaire to collect 
capital investment need information from large (serving more than 
100,000 people) and medium (serving more than 3,300 people but less 
than 100,000) community water systems. The questionnaire will also be 
used by EPA survey teams in visits to 400 to 600 statistically-selected 
small (serving less than 3,300 people) community water systems to 
ascertain their infrastructure needs. Participation in the survey is 
voluntary. The data from the questionnaires will provide EPA with a 
basis for estimating the nationwide infrastructure needs of community 
water systems. Also, as mandated by Section 1452(a)(1) (D)(ii) of the 
Safe Drinking Water Act, EPA uses the results of the latest survey to 
allocate Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) monies to the 
States. Under the allotment formula, each State receives a grant of the 
annual DWSRF appropriation in proportion to its share of the total 
national need--with the proviso that each State receives at least 1 
percent of the total funds available.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 7.62 
hours per response for Local Government Owned Water Systems; 5.68 hours 
per response for Privately Owned Water Systems; 6.72 hours per response 
for State Government Owned Water Systems; and 18.7 hours per response 
for State and U.S. Territories Water Agencies. 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 which have subsequently 
changed; 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: Local Government Owned Water 
Systems, Privately Owned Water Systems, State Government Owned Water 
Systems, and State and U.S. Territories Water Agencies.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,193.
    Frequency of Response: 0.33 times per year.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 15,343.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $513,462 includes $0 annualized
