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: Facilities that manufacture carbon black, cyanide chemicals, ethylene, and spandex. Estimated Number of Respondents: 72.

ACTION: Notice of public comment period. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is announcing a 30-day public comment period for the draft document titled, ‘‘BASINS 4.0 Climate Assessment Tool (CAT): Supporting Documentation and Users Manual’’ (EPA/600/R–08/088). The document was prepared by the National Center for Environmental Assessment within EPA’s Office of Research and Development. The Office of Research and Development, in partnership with EPA’s Office of Water, recently developed a Climate Assessment Tool (CAT) for the Office of Water’s BASINS 4.0 watershed modeling system. BASINS CAT provides a flexible set of capabilities for creating user-defined climate change scenarios for assessing the influence of climate variability and change on water quantity and quality using the Hydrologic Simulation Program— FORTRAN (HSPF) watershed model. This report provides documentation and technical user support including a discussion of tool capabilities with hands-on tutorials demonstrating the application of BASINS CAT to a range of problems. BASINS 4.0 (with the BASINS CAT) can be downloaded from EPA’s BASINS Web site at http:// www.epa.gov/waterscience/basins/ b3webdwn.htm.
