I. Abstract Pursuant to the Boulder Canyon Project Act (Public Law 70–642, 45 Stat. 1057), all diversions of mainstream Colorado River water must be in accordance with a Colorado River water entitlement. The Consolidated Decree of the United States Supreme Court in Arizona v. California, 547 U.S. 150 (2006) requires the Secretary of the Interior to account for all diversions of mainstream Colorado River water along the lower Colorado River, including water drawn from the mainstream by underground pumping. To meet the water entitlement and accounting obligations, an inventory of wells and river pumps is required along the lower Colorado River, and the gathering of specific information concerning these wells.

Respondents: Well and river-pump owners and operators along the lower Colorado River in Arizona, California, and Nevada. Each diverter (including well pumpers) must be identified and their diversion locations and water use determined. Estimated Completion Time: An average of 20 minutes is required to interview individual well and riverpump owners or operators. Estimated Annual Total Number of Respondents: 300.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks OMB approval under the PRA 
for revisions to the National Agriculture Workers Survey (NAWS)--an 
employment-based survey of the demographic, employment, and health 
characteristics of hired crop farm workers, including workers brought 
to farms by labor intermediaries. In addition, point of contact 
information is obtained from farms. Interviews are conducted three 
times per year, in order to account for the seasonality of agricultural 
production and employment. This information collection has been 
classified as a revision, because the ETA seeks approval to add new 
questions to the NAWS on farm workers' education and training program 
participation; digital information devices access and use; acute, 
preventive, and dental health care utilization; living quarters 
location in relation to production agriculture; and housing type. 
Proposed changes also include: temporarily discontinuing questions on 
occupational injuries, musculoskeletal problems, and potential exposure 
to pesticides that have fulfilled their current purpose; deleting 17 
other questions that either had too few responses to be useful for 
analysis, would be redundant with the addition of proposed questions, 
or are no longer valid; and modifying the stem and/or response options 
of six (6) questions to make them more useful. Wagner-Peyser Act 
section 15 authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 49l-
2(a).
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1205-0453. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on August 31, 2015; however, the DOL notes that existing 
information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a 
month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements 
would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive 
information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the 
Federal Register on June 26, 2015 (80 FR 36853).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section by September 30, 2015. In order to help ensure 
appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 
1205-0453. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
