SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Diversions, Return Flow, and Consumptive Use of Colorado River Water in the Lower Colorado River Basin. OMB No.: 1006–0015. Form No.: LC–72, 72A, 72B. Abstract: Reclamation delivers Colorado River water to water users for diversion and beneficial consumptive use in the States of Arizona, California, and Nevada. The Consolidated Decree of the United States Supreme Court in the case of Arizona v. California, et al., entered March 27, 2006, (547 U.S. 150 (2006)), requires the Secretary of the Interior to prepare and maintain complete, detailed, and accurate records of diversions of water, return flow, and consumptive use and make these records available at least annually. This information is needed to ensure that a State or a water user within a State does not exceed its authorized use of Colorado River water. Water users are obligated by provisions in their water delivery contracts to provide Reclamation information on diversions and return flows. Reclamation determines the consumptive use by subtracting return flow from diversions or by other engineering means. Without the information collected, Reclamation could not comply with the order of the United States Supreme Court to prepare and maintain detailed and accurate records of diversions, return flow, and consumptive use. Responses are required to obtain a benefit. Description of respondents: The respondents will include the Lower Basin States (Arizona, California, and Nevada), local and tribal entities, water districts, and individuals that use Colorado River water. Frequency: Monthly, annually, or otherwise as determined by the Secretary of the Interior. Estimated Total Number of Respondents: 54. Estimated Total Number of Annual Responses: 330. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 290.
