Abstract: Section 1414 (c)(3)(A) of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) requires that each state (a term that includes states, commonwealths and territories) that has primary enforcement authority under the Safe Drinking Water Act shall prepare, make readily available to the public, and submit to the Administrator of EPA, an annual report of violations of national primary drinking water regulations in the state. These Annual State Public Water System Compliance Reports are to include violations of maximum contaminant levels, treatment requirements, variances and exemptions, and monitoring requirements determined to be significant by the Administrator after consultation with the states. To minimize a state’s burden in preparing its annual statutorily-required report, EPA issued guidance that explains what Section 1414(c)(3)(A) requires and VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:55 Jan 15, 2014 Jkt 232001 provides model language and reporting templates. Fifty-five states (including Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Navajo Nation) currently have primary enforcement authority under the Safe Drinking Water Act. The Navajo Nation was approved for primacy on December 6, 2000. Currently the State of Wyoming and the District of Columbia neither have primary enforcement authority nor are they seeking primary authority, so the number of 55 states is unlikely to change over the next three years of this ICR. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: State, local and/or tribal governments. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory under Section 1414 (c)(3)(A) of the Safe Drinking Water Act. Estimated number of respondents: 55 (total). Frequency of response: Annual. Total estimated burden: 4,400 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $317,684.95 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. Abstract: This information collection is an application from State, local, or tribal agencies (S/L/Ts) for delegation of regulations developed under section 112 of the Clean Air Act. The five options for delegation are straight delegation, rule adjustment, rule substitution, equivalency by permit, or state program approval. The information is needed and used to determine if the entity submitting an application has met the criteria established in 40 CFR part 63 subpart E. This information is necessary for the EPA Administrator to determine the acceptability of approving S/L/T’s rules, requirements, or programs in lieu of the Federal section 112 rules or programs. The collection of information is authorized under 42 U.S.C. 7401– 7671q. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are S/ L/Ts participating in this voluntary program. These government establishments are classified as Air and Water Resource and Solid Waste Management Programs under Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code 9511 and North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code 92411. No industries under any SIC or NAICS codes will be included among respondents. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary. Estimated number of respondents: 119 S/L/Ts for maximum achievable control technology standards and 95 S/ L/Ts for area source standards per year. Frequency of response: One time per delegation request. Total estimated burden: 29,489 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: About $1,502,300. This includes an estimated VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:55 Jan 15, 2014 Jkt 232001 labor burden cost of $1,500,000 and an estimated cost of $2,300 for operation and maintenance costs resulting from photocopying and postage expenses. Changes in Estimates: Preliminary results indicate a decrease of 7,618 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to: (1) A decrease in the number of MACT standard promulgations compared to last period, (2) a decrease in the number of area source standard promulgations compared to last period and (3) a decrease in the number of S/ L/Ts taking area source delegation compared to last period. We are still in the process of reviewing the key assumptions in the ICR that will affect the overall burden estimate. These include the number of delegation activities expected to occur during the upcoming collection period, the delegation options most likely to be used by the delegated S/L/Ts, and the burden associated with each of the options. Depending on the outcome of this review, there could be changes in the overall burden estimates. Dated: January 9, 2014. Kevin Culligan, Acting Director, Sector Policies and Program Division.
