The telephone number for the Docket Center is 202–566–1744. For additional information about EPA’s public docket, visit www.epa.gov/ dockets. Abstract: The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) Amendments of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–182) authorized the creation of the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF; the Fund) program in each state and Puerto Rico to assist public water systems to finance the costs of infrastructure needed to achieve or maintain compliance with SDWA requirements and to protect public health. Section 1452 authorizes the Administrator of the EPA to award PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 capitalization grants to the states and Puerto Rico which, in turn, provide lowcost loans and other types of assistance to eligible drinking water systems. States can also reserve a portion of their grants to conduct various set-aside activities. The information collection activities will occur primarily at the program level through the (1) Capitalization Grant Application and Agreement/State Intended Use Plan; (2) Biennial Report; (3) Annual Audit; (4) Assistance Application Review; and (5) DWSRF National Information Management System and the Projects & Benefits Reporting System. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Entities affected by this action are states and local governments. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Required to obtain or retain a benefit per the Safe Drinking Water Act Section 1452(g)(1). Estimated number of respondents: 1,035 (total). Frequency of response: Varies by requirement (i.e., quarterly, semiannually and annually). Total estimated burden: 88,881 hours (average per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $4,884,591 (average per year), which is solely for labor cost. Changes in the Estimates: There is a net decrease of 180,916 hours in annual respondent burden hours from the previous ICR. This is partially attributable to the previous ICR’s inclusion of burden hours from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) signed by the President on February 17, 2009. ARRA’s additional $2 billion in funding for assistance agreements resulted in approximately twice the normal number of applications for assistance in 2009. There is also a net decrease in local respondent burden hours from the previous ICR, which included application preparation and submission burden hours for localities. This is a state need/requirement, not federal, and thus it is excluded from this ICR. Some of the decrease is offset by this ICR’s inclusion of local burden for public awareness activities.
