Abstract: Discharge Monitoring Report-Quality Assurance (DMR–QA) study program participation is mandatory for major and selected minor National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit holders in accordance with Clean Water Act Section 308. The DMR–QA study program is designed to evaluate the analytic ability of the laboratories that perform chemical, microbiological and whole effluent toxicity (WET) analyses required in the NPDES permits for reporting results in Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMR). Under DMR–QA, the permit holder is responsible for having their in-house and/or contract laboratories perform proficiency tests and submit results for grading by proficiency test (PT) providers. Graded results are transmitted by either the permittee or PT provider to the appropriate federal or ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4335 state NPDES regulatory authority. Permit holders are responsible for submitting corrective action reports to the appropriate regulatory authority when results are unsatisfactory. Form Numbers: EPA Form 6400–01. Respondents/Affected Entities: Major and selected minor permit holders under the Clean Water Act’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). Respondent’s Obligation To Respond: Mandatory under Clean Water Act Section 308(a). Estimated Number of Respondents: 5,700 (total). Frequency of Response: Annually, On occasion. Total Estimated Burden: 37,620 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b) Total Estimated Cost: $5,113,983 (per year), includes $3,194,052 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 1,259 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase in burden hours can be attributed to an increase in discretionary selection of minor permit holders for participation by state coordinators. Labor costs were revised upward due to market changes and inflation. Non-labor costs for obtaining proficiency test samples also increased. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.
