We will use several distinct forms to collect different types of recreation information. Before submitting the information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval, we are soliciting comments on specific aspects of the information collection. DATES: Comments on this notice must be received by May 4, 2007. ADDRESSES: Address all comments concerning this notice to Bureau of Reclamation, Office of Program and Policy Services, Attention: Darrell Welch (84–53000), PO Box 25007, Denver CO 80225–0007 or via e-mail at dwelch@do.usbr.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information or a copy of the proposed collection of information forms, contact Darrell Welch at 303– 445–2711. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are requesting approval for the collection of data from recreational users of our lands, rivers, and reservoirs. To meet our needs for the collection of visitor use data, we will be requesting OMB to authorize a two-part request. The first part of the request provides us with a set of 11 pre-approved questionnaires to be administered as approved by OMB. The second part of the request consists of OMB and the Bureau of Reclamation agreeing upon a process whereby we custom design a survey instrument to fit a specific situation or area. The custom designed survey would be created by extracting questions from the approved questionnaires as applicable to the area and issue being evaluated. Only questions included in the pre-approved questionnaires will be used. We will then submit the new survey form to OMB for expedited approval. Title: Recreation Visitor Use Surveys. Abstract: The Bureau of Reclamation is responsible for recreation development at all of its reservoirs. Presently there are 300 designated recreation areas on our lands within the 17 Western States hosting almost 90 million visitors annually. Visitation to our reservoirs is increasing at an average rate of 1.2 million visitors per year, and more than 100 million people are projected to visit our reservoirs by the early twenty-first century. We must be able to respond to emerging trends, changes in the demographic profile of users, changing values, needs, wants, and desires, and conflicts between user groups. Statistically valid and up-todate data derived from the user is essential to developing and providing recreation programs relevant to today’s visitor. Respondents: Respondents to the surveys will be members of the public engaged in recreational activities on our lands. Several surveys target people engaged in specific activities such as boating on a specific lake, or people camping at a developed campground. Visitors will primarily consist of local residents, people from large metropolitan areas in the vicinity of the lake/reservoir, and visitors from out of state. Frequency: Varies by survey. Estimated Total Number of Respondents: 7,350. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1.0. Estimated Total of Annual Responses: 7,350. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours on Respondents: 2,013.
