Abstract: The USEPA Office of Research and Development is investigating public values for options of salmon recovery in the Willamette Watershed in western Oregon. These values will be estimated via a willingness to pay mail survey instrument. Two anadromous fish species in the Willamette watershed are federally listed as threatened species; Spring Chinook, and Winter steelhead. The survey focuses on two attributes of recovery for these fish: The recovery status; and the time to recovery. A choice experiment framework is used with statistically designed tradeoff questions, where recovery options are posed as increases in a yearly household tax. The choice experiment is designed to allow independent isolation of the value of recovery and of time to recovery. A few additional questions to further understand the motivations for respondent choices, their river-related recreation behavior, and their attitudes towards wild origin versus hatchery origin fish are also included. Limited sociodemographic questions are included to gauge how well the sample respondents represent the target population. The survey will be fielded to Oregon residents. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Individuals. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary. Estimated number of respondents: 1,000 (total). Frequency of response: Once. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Oct 29, 2014 Jkt 235001 Total estimated burden: 500 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $8,620 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: This is a new collection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 13, 2005, the final Cross-Media 
Electronic Reporting Rule (CROMERR) was published in the Federal 
Register (70 FR 59848) and codified as part 3 of title 40 of the CFR. 
CROMERR establishes electronic reporting as an acceptable regulatory 
alternative to paper reporting and establishes requirements to assure 
that electronic documents are as legally dependable as their paper 
counterparts. Subpart D of CROMERR requires that state, tribal or local 
government agencies that receive, or wish to begin receiving, 
electronic reports under their EPA-authorized programs must apply to 
EPA for a revision or modification of those programs and obtain EPA 
approval. Subpart D provides standards for such approvals based on 
consideration of the electronic document receiving systems that the 
state, tribe, or local government will use to implement the electronic 
reporting. Additionally, Sec.  3.1000(b) through (e) of 40 CFR part 3, 
subpart D provides special procedures for program revisions and 
modifications to allow electronic reporting, to be used at the option 
of the state, tribe or local government in place of procedures 
available under existing program-specific authorization regulations. An 
application submitted under the subpart D procedures must show that the 
state, tribe or local government has sufficient legal authority to 
implement the electronic reporting components of the programs covered 
by the application and will use electronic document receiving systems 
that meet the applicable subpart D requirements.
    On June 13, 2014, the Indiana Department of Environmental 
Management (IDEM) submitted an application titled ``Indiana Electronic 
Sample Entry Verify (eSE) System'' for revision of its EPA-authorized 
Part 142 program under title 40 CFR. EPA reviewed IDEM's request to 
revise its EPA-authorized program and, based on this review, EPA 
determined that the application met the standards for approval of 
authorized program revision set out in 40 CFR part 3, subpart D. In 
accordance with 40 CFR 3.1000(d), this notice of EPA's decision to 
approve Indiana's request to revise its Part 142--National Primary 
Drinking Water Regulations Implementation program to allow electronic 
reporting under 40 CFR part 141 is being published in the Federal 
Register. IDEM was notified of EPA's determination to approve its
