ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1816.04, OMB Control No. 2040–0197. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2008. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32023 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, and 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: Section 1453(a)(3) of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) required States to submit a Source Water Assessment Program within 18 months after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published its State Source Water Assessment and Protection Programs Guidance: Final Guidance. Upon EPA approval of their programs, States conducted source water assessments of their public water systems. State assessments were required to be completed three and a half years after approval of a state’s program; the assessment program is therefore complete relative to the SDWA requirements. The burden and cost associated with all of the assessment was accounted for in three previous information collection requests (EPA ICR Nos. 1816.01, 1816.02, and 1816.03). The 2006–2011 EPA Strategic Plan incorporates a source water contamination prevention measure to describe the voluntary source water protection (SWP) actions taken at the local or regional level based on the results of completed source water assessments. EPA’s strategic target for SWP sets a goal of minimized risk to public health in 50 percent of community water systems (CWSs) and the 62 percent of the U.S. population served by those CWSs by 2011. Achieving minimized risk to public health focuses on developing and substantially implementing SWP strategies to address potential contamination risks within each CWS source water area. EPA is collecting, on a voluntary basis, data from the States on their progress toward substantial implementation of prevention strategies for all CWS SWAs. While Section 1453(a)(3) of the SDWA does not authorize source water protection, States are encouraged to use the data collected in the source water assessments to develop protection plans for source water areas. Drinking Water State Revolving Fund monies authorized in Section 1452(g)(2)(B) may be used for activities to support efforts in source water protection. The E:\FR\FM\05JNN1.SGM 05JNN1 32024 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 109 / Thursday, June 5, 2008 / Notices information is being collected under EPA’s Office of Water National Program Guidance and the State Grant Performance Measures Template. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 33 hours per response. 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: State environmental and health agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 52. Frequency of Response: Annual. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 1,716. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $820,287, includes $748,257 annualized capital or O&M costs, and $72,030 labor costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 149,215 hours per year in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease in burden is due to a decrease in the number of items being reported. The burden estimates were considerably greater in the current ICR because it included an additional 146,719 hours annually and $0.24 million annually to allow nine states to complete the source water assessments. yshivers on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES Dated: May 28, 2008.

    Abstract: Section 1453(a)(3) of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) 
required States to submit a Source Water Assessment Program within 18 
months after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published 
its State Source Water Assessment and Protection Programs Guidance: 
Final Guidance. Upon EPA approval of their programs, States conducted 
source water assessments of their public water systems. State 
assessments were required to be completed three and a half years after 
approval of a state's program; the assessment program is therefore 
complete relative to the SDWA requirements. The burden and cost 
associated with all of the assessment was accounted for in three 
previous information collection requests (EPA ICR Nos. 1816.01, 
1816.02, and 1816.03).
    The 2006-2011 EPA Strategic Plan incorporates a source water 
contamination prevention measure to describe the voluntary source water 
protection (SWP) actions taken at the local or regional level based on 
the results of completed source water assessments. EPA's strategic

information is being collected under EPA's Office of Water National 
Program Guidance and the State Grant Performance Measures Template.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 33 
hours per response. 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: State environmental and health 
agencies.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 52.

    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 1,716.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $820,287, includes $748,257 annualized 
capital or O&M costs, and $72,030 labor costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 149,215 hours per 
year in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB 
Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease in burden is due to a 
decrease in the number of items being reported. The burden estimates 
were considerably greater in the current ICR because it included an 
additional 146,719 hours annually and $0.24 million annually to allow 
nine states to complete the source water assessments.
