UCMR 3 addresses the third group of 30 contaminants and was published in the Federal Register on May 2, 2012 (77 FR 26071). UCMR 3 ‘‘Assessment Monitoring’’ began in January 2013 and continues through December 2015 for all large systems (those systems serving 10,001 to 100,000 people) and very large systems (those systems serving more than 100,000 people), and for a nationally representative sample of 800 small systems (those systems serving 10,000 or fewer people). The ‘‘Screening Survey’’ began in January 2013 and continues through December 2015 for all very large systems, 320 randomlyselected large systems, and 480 randomly selected small systems. ‘‘PreScreen Testing’’ began in January 2013 and continues through December 2015 for a sample of 800 small, undisinfected ground water systems (those systems serving 1,000 or fewer people). This notice proposes renewal of the currently approved UCMR 3 ICR, (OMB Control No. 2040–0270), which covers the period 2012–2014. This ICR renewal accounts for activities conducted during 2015–2017. The complete five-year UCMR 3 period of 2012–2016 overlaps with the applicable ICR period only during 2015 and 2016. PWSs will only be involved in active monitoring during 2015 (i.e., one-third of this ICR period). This information collection does not require respondents to disclose confidential information. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Data associated with this ICR are collected and submitted by PWSs. States, territories and tribes with primacy to administer the regulatory program for PWSs under SDWA may participate in UCMR 3 implementation through a partnership agreement with EPA. These primacy agencies may sometimes conduct monitoring and maintain records. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory. The information collection is carried out per section 1445(a) of SDWA. Estimated number of respondents: There are approximately 6,351 respondents to UCMR 3, including 2,098 PWSs that will monitor during the ICR years of 2015–2017; and 56 states and primacy agents. Frequency of response: The frequency of responses varies based on the respondent type. PWSs and states have a different number of responses. PWSs served by surface water monitor for the UCMR contaminants four times during a 12-month period. PWSs served by VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 Mar 30, 2015 Jkt 235001 ground water monitor twice during a 12month period. The number of samples collected by PWSs also differs based on the size of the systems, and the number of entry points and distribution system sample points within each system. The total number of responses per respondent is 2.96 over the three ICR years of 2015–2017, or an average of 0.99 responses per respondent per year. Total estimated burden: EPA estimates the annual labor burden per respondent at 8.31 hours during the ICR years of 2015–2017 for states and PWSs. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: EPA estimates the total cost at $7.45 million per year during the ICR years of 2015–2017 for states and PWSs. The total costs include labor costs and laboratory analysis (nonlabor) costs. EPA pays for the analytical and sample shipping costs for small PWSs, and the Agency collects all the Pre-Screen Testing samples for all PWSs. Changes in Estimates: There is a decrease of 68,294 hours in the total estimated respondent burden for states and PWSs compared with the existing ICR. Respondents to this renewal ICR will incur a different burden than those responding to the original ICR for 2012– 2014 because: • Fewer PWSs participate during the ICR period of 2015–2017 than in 2012– 2014. Only one third of the systems monitor for UCMR 3 contaminants in 2015–2017; two-thirds of the systems have already monitored for UCMR 3 contaminants in 2012–2014. • The schedule of activities for PWSs differs. Some initial activities were conducted by all systems during the previous ICR period. These activities will not take place during the second ICR period of 2015–2017. • The schedule of activities differs for participating states. Management and support activities for states vary with the UCMR 3 monitoring schedule. States are expected to incur less burden during this second UCMR 3 ICR period of 2015–2017. Dated: March 20, 2015. Peter Grevatt, Director, Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water.
