Notice of Lodging of Stipulation and Order Under the Clean Water Act, 39335-39336 [E8-15534]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 132 / Wednesday, July 9, 2008 / Notices approved under the OMB Control Number 1010–0149. However, in connection with this subpart, MMS believes that the burden hour requirements in the proposed NTL are in addition to the currently approved paperwork burden under those requirements. With regard to the OCS Pipelines section of this NTL, MMS has the authority to collect the information requested under 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart J, Pipelines and Pipeline Rightsof-Way. The OMB has already approved the collection of pipeline information under OMB Control Number 1010–0050. Emergency NTLs were issued relating to this same subject—structural damage caused by hurricanes—in 2003 after Hurricane Lili, in 2004 after Hurricane Ivan, and in 2005 after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Due to the nature of these incidents and their increasing occurrences, immediately after Hurricane Ivan, proposed rulemaking was started to require lessees to submit to MMS information about structure damage on the OCS due to natural phenomena, e.g., hurricanes, earthquakes. The final rule is currently in the surnaming process and OMB has issued Regulation Identifier Number 1010–AD18. We will protect information from respondents considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2) and under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection. No items of a sensitive nature are collected. Responses are mandatory. Frequency: Monthly; and as specified in the NTL. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 130 Federal OCS oil and gas lessees. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The currently approved annual reporting burden for this collection is 26,880 hours. The following chart details the individual components and respective hour burden estimates of this ICR. In calculating the burdens, we assumed that respondents perform certain requirements in the normal course of their activities. We consider these to be usual and customary and took that into account in estimating the burden. Reporting requirement Hour burden Prepare and submit to MMS: (1) List of impacted OCS structures, (2) timetable for inspections, and (3) inspection plan for each listed platform describing work to determine condition of structure ................................................................................................ Submit amendments to list and inspection plans ................................................................................................................................ Submit report to MMS describing detected damage that may adversely affect structural integrity, including assessment of ability to withstand anticipated environmental storm conditions, and any remediation plans ................................................................... Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have identified no non-hour cost burdens for this collection. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated to respond. Comments: Before submitting an ICR to OMB, PRA section 3506(c)(2)(A) requires each agency jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES ‘‘* * * to provide notice * * * and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information * * *’’. Agencies must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to perform its duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Agencies must also estimate the nonhour cost burdens to respondents or recordkeepers resulting from the collection of information. Therefore, if VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:15 Jul 08, 2008 Jkt 214001 you have costs to generate, maintain, and disclose this information, you should comment and provide your total capital and startup cost components or annual operation, maintenance, and purchase of service components. You should describe the methods you use to estimate major cost factors, including system and technology acquisition, expected useful life of capital equipment, discount rate(s), and the period over which you incur costs. Capital and startup costs include, among other items, computers and software you purchase to prepare for collecting information, monitoring, and record storage facilities. You should not include estimates for equipment or services purchased: (i) Before October 1, 1995; (ii) to comply with requirements not associated with the information collection; (iii) for reasons other than to provide information or keep records for the Government; or (iv) as part of customary and usual business or private practices. We will summarize written responses to this notice and address them in our submission for OMB approval. As a result of your comments, we will make any necessary adjustments to the burden in our submission to OMB. Public Comment Procedures: Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39335 12 12 120 personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time.
