Abstract The America the Beautiful—National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Pass Program covers recreation opportunities on public lands managed by four Department of the Interior agencies—the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the Bureau of Reclamation—and by the Department of Agriculture’s U.S. Forest Service. The passes provide visitors an affordable and convenient way to access Federal recreation lands. The pass program’s proceeds are used to improve and enhance visitor recreation services. Two of the available passes—Interagency Access Pass and Interagency Senior Pass—require documentation and are the bases for this information collection. The Interagency Access Pass is a free, lifetime pass issued to citizens or residents who are domiciled in the United States, regardless of age, and who have a medical determination and documentation of permanent disability. You can obtain an Access Pass in person, with proper documentation, from a participating Federal recreation site or office. Access Passes may also be obtained via mail order. Mail-order applicants for the Access Pass must submit a completed application, proof of residency, and documentation of permanent disability, and pay the document processing fee of $10 to obtain a pass through the mail. If a person arrives at a recreation site and claims eligibility for the Interagency Access Pass, but cannot produce any documentation, that person must read, sign, and date a Statement of Disability Form in the presence of the agency officer issuing the Interagency Access Pass. If the applicant cannot read and/ or sign the form, someone else may read, date, and sign the statement on his/her behalf in the applicant’s presence and in the presence of the agency officer issuing the Interagency Access Pass. The Interagency Senior Pass is a lifetime pass issued to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are 62 years or older. There is a $10 fee for the Senior Pass. You can buy a Senior Pass in person from a participating Federal recreation site or office, online or by mail order. There is an additional document processing fee of $10 to obtain a Senior Pass online or through the mail. Online and mail-order applicants must submit a completed application and proof of residency and age, and pay $20 for the pass fee and processing fee.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Bureau of Reclamation, in collaboration with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, State of Colorado Department of Natural Resources Dam Safety Branch, and various water irrigation districts that operate Federal canals, is seeking new ideas for costeffective ways to prevent rodents from burrowing into the earthen embankments of dams, canals, and levees. These burrows cause seepage paths in the embankment system which can lead to structural failures that endanger water supplies, and cause property damage and loss of life. Many of the more traditional and ‘‘intuitive’’ methods have been tried with little success to date. We are hoping the Solver community can dig deeper than the rodents to find creative and effective solutions to this Challenge.

I. Abstract

    The America the Beautiful--National Parks and Federal Recreation 
Lands Pass Program covers recreation opportunities on public lands 
managed by four Department of the Interior agencies--the National Park 
Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and 
the Bureau of Reclamation--and by the Department of Agriculture's U.S. 
Forest Service. The passes provide visitors an affordable and 
convenient way to access Federal recreation lands. The pass program's 
proceeds are used to improve and enhance visitor recreation services. 
Two of the available passes--Interagency Access Pass and Interagency 
Senior Pass--require documentation and are the bases for this 
information collection.
    The Interagency Access Pass is a free, lifetime pass issued to 
citizens or residents who are domiciled in the United States, 
regardless of age, and who have a medical determination and 
documentation of permanent disability. You can obtain an Access Pass in 
person, with proper documentation, from a participating Federal 
recreation site or office. Access Passes may also be obtained via mail 
order. Mail-order applicants for the Access Pass must submit a 
completed application, proof of residency, and documentation of 
permanent disability, and pay the document processing fee of $10 to 
obtain a pass through the mail.
    If a person arrives at a recreation site and claims eligibility for 
the Interagency Access Pass, but cannot produce any documentation, that 
person must read, sign, and date a Statement of Disability Form in the 
presence of the agency officer issuing the Interagency Access Pass. If 
the applicant cannot read and/or sign the form, someone else may read, 
date, and sign the statement on his/her behalf in the applicant's 
presence and in the presence of the agency officer issuing the 
Interagency Access Pass.
    The Interagency Senior Pass is a lifetime pass issued to U.S. 
citizens or permanent residents who are 62 years or older. There is a 
$10 fee for the Senior Pass. You can buy a Senior Pass in person from a 
participating Federal recreation site or office, online or by mail 
order. There is an additional document processing fee of $10 to obtain
