AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:08 Dec 12, 2016 Jkt 241001 This Challenge seeks to identify new or improved sensors, devices, or test kits to test for arsenic in water within natural and engineered systems. Solutions must improve on the current arsenic measurement methods. Areas of needed improvement include: performance, ease of use, reduction in hazardous waste production, data interpretation, and cost. This is Stage 1 of a planned two-stage Challenge, with the second stage consisting of a prototype demonstration and a larger prize purse. The Bureau of Reclamation is the Seeker for this Challenge. DATES: Listed below are the specific dates pertaining to this prize competition: 1. Submission period begins on December 13, 2016. 2. Submission period ends on March 13, 2017. 3. Judging period ends on May 12, 2017. 4. Winners announced by June 1, 2017. SUMMARY: The Arsenic Sensor Challenge—Stage 1 Prize Competition will be posted on the following crowdsourcing platforms where Solvers can register for this prize competition: 1. The Water Pavilion located at the InnoCentive Challenge Center: https:// www.innocentive.com/ar/challenge/ browse. 2. U.S. Federal Government Challenge Platform: www.Challenge.gov. InnoCentive, Inc. is administering this challenge under a challenge support services contract with the Bureau of ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 89971 Reclamation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is announcing the following prize competition in compliance with 15 U.S.C. 3719, Prize Competitions. Prize Competition Summary: Measuring arsenic in the environment and in drinking water is important for protecting human health. Drinking water and wastewater treatment facilities are subject to arsenic regulations in order to limit human exposure and environmental contamination. Privately-owned drinking water wells are tested for arsenic in order to prevent exposure. Contaminated site cleanup requires screening to know where arsenic contamination occurs. Regulatory compliance includes collecting and analyzing samples using approved methods with results available days to weeks later. While current analytical methods are suitable for ensuring regulatory compliance, there is a need for rapid, low-cost monitoring of arsenic that would benefit water treatment plant operations, wastewater monitoring, contaminated site remediation, private well owners, scientific research, and other interested parties. Routine arsenic monitoring can identify changes in process performance and improve operations. Rapid, on-site monitoring of arsenic in the field can help identify hot spots for more targeted sampling and remediation. Potential barriers to the widespread implementation of on-site arsenic monitoring include the generation of hazardous waste, the unreliability of analytical methods that rely on color charts, the high level of operator effort required to conduct monitoring, and the cost of online analyzers. Collectively, Reclamation and our collaborators hope to stimulate innovation in water sensing E:\FR\FM\13DEN1.SGM 13DEN1
