Abstract: Congress passed the Beaches Environmental Assessment and Coastal Health (BEACH) Act in October 2000 to amend the Clean Water Act, in part by adding section 406, ‘‘Coastal Recreation Water Monitoring and Notification.’’ Section 406(b) authorizes EPA to make grants to States and local governments to develop and implement programs for monitoring and public notification for coastal recreation waters adjacent to beaches or similar points of access that are used by the public, if the State or local government satisfies the requirements of the BEACH Act. Several of these requirements require a grant recipient to collect and submit information to EPA as a condition for receiving the grant. Section 406(b) requires a grant recipient to provide the factors that the state or local government uses to prioritize funds and a list of waters for which the grant funds will be used. Section 406(b) also requires that a grant recipient’s program be consistent with the performance requirements set by EPA under section 406(a); EPA needs information from the grant recipients to determine if the monitoring and notification programs are consistent with these criteria. On July 19, 2002, EPA published the National Beach Guidance and Required Performance Criteria for Grants (67 FR 47540). Section 406(b) also requires that a grant E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1 cprice-sewell on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES 69634 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 224 / Wednesday, November 19, 2008 / Notices recipient submit a report to EPA that describes the data collected as part of a monitoring and notification program and the actions taken to notify the public when water quality standards are exceeded. Section 406(c) requires a grant recipient to identify lists of coastal recreation waters, processes for States to delegate to local governments the responsibility for implementing a monitoring and notification program, and the content of the monitoring and notification program. The information covered by this ICR is required of States and local governments that seek to obtain BEACH Act funding. It allows EPA to properly review State and local governments’ monitoring and notification programs to determine if they are eligible for BEACH Act grant funding. This information also enables EPA to fulfill its obligations to make this information available to the public as required by sections 406(e) and (g). Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 2,374 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; 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: Environmental and public health agencies in coastal and Great Lakes states, territories and authorized tribes. Estimated Number of Respondents: 40. Frequency of Response: Annual. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 94,947. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $11,928,370, includes $3,938,760 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: The annual operation and maintenance costs increased by $188,760. This is because the estimated number of beaches monitored by grant recipients increased from 3,472 (estimated from EPA’s 2003 National List of Beaches) to 3,647 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:14 Nov 18, 2008 Jkt 217001 (estimated from the 2007 National Beaches Survey), a 5.0% increase.

    Abstract: Congress passed the Beaches Environmental Assessment and 
Coastal Health (BEACH) Act in October 2000 to amend the Clean Water 
Act, in part by adding section 406, ``Coastal Recreation Water 
Monitoring and Notification.'' Section 406(b) authorizes EPA to make 
grants to States and local governments to develop and implement 
programs for monitoring and public notification for coastal recreation 
waters adjacent to beaches or similar points of access that are used by 
the public, if the State or local government satisfies the requirements 
of the BEACH Act.
    Several of these requirements require a grant recipient to collect 
and submit information to EPA as a condition for receiving the grant. 
Section 406(b) requires a grant recipient to provide the factors that 
the state or local government uses to prioritize funds and a list of 
waters for which the grant funds will be used. Section 406(b) also 
requires that a grant recipient's program be consistent with the 
performance requirements set by EPA under section 406(a); EPA needs 
information from the grant recipients to determine if the monitoring 
and notification programs are consistent with these criteria. On July 
19, 2002, EPA published the National Beach Guidance and Required 
Performance Criteria for Grants (67 FR 47540). Section 406(b) also 
requires that a grant

[[Page 69634]]

recipient submit a report to EPA that describes the data collected as 
part of a monitoring and notification program and the actions taken to 
notify the public when water quality standards are exceeded. Section 
406(c) requires a grant recipient to identify lists of coastal 
recreation waters, processes for States to delegate to local 
governments the responsibility for implementing a monitoring and 
notification program, and the content of the monitoring and 
notification program.
    The information covered by this ICR is required of States and local 
governments that seek to obtain BEACH Act funding. It allows EPA to 
properly review State and local governments' monitoring and 
notification programs to determine if they are eligible for BEACH Act 
grant funding. This information also enables EPA to fulfill its 
obligations to make this information available to the public as 
required by sections 406(e) and (g).
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 2,374 
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; 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: Environmental and public health 
agencies in coastal and Great Lakes states, territories and authorized 
tribes.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 40.
    Frequency of Response: Annual.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 94,947.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $11,928,370, includes $3,938,760 
annualized capital or O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: The annual operation and maintenance 
costs increased by $188,760. This is because the estimated number of 
beaches monitored by grant recipients increased from 3,472 (estimated 
from EPA's 2003 National List of Beaches) to 3,647 (estimated from the 
2007 National Beaches Survey), a 5.0% increase.
