Abstract The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is responsible for approximately 6.5 million acres of land which directly support Reclamation’s Federal water projects in the 17 western states. Individuals or entities wanting to use Reclamation’s lands, facilities, or waterbodies must submit an application to gain permission for such uses. Examples of such uses are: —Agricultural uses such as grazing and farming; —commercial or organized recreation and sporting activities; VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Nov 13, 2014 Jkt 235001 —other commercial activities such as ‘‘guiding and outfitting’’ and ‘‘filming and photography;’’ and —resource exploration and extraction, including sand and gravel removal and timber harvesting. Reclamation reviews applications to determine whether granting individual use authorizations is compatible with Reclamation’s present or future uses of the lands, facilities, or waterbodies. When we find a proposed use compatible, we advise the applicant of the estimated administrative costs and estimated application processing time. In addition to the administrative costs, we require the applicant to pay a use fee based on a valuation or by competitive bidding. If the application is for construction of a bridge, building, or other significant construction project, Reclamation may require that all plans and specifications be signed and sealed by a licensed professional engineer. OMB Control Number: 1006–0003. Title: Bureau of Reclamation Use Authorization Application. Form Number: Form 7–2540. Frequency: Each time a use authorization is requested. Respondents: Individuals, corporations, companies, and State and local entities who want to sue Reclamation lands, facilities, or waterbodies. Estimated Annual Total Number of Respondents: 175.
