Background and Brief Description The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is requesting a three-year Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) clearance for a new information collection request (ICR) titled ‘‘Biomonitoring of Great Lakes Populations Program III.’’ ATSDR awarded funds to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WIDHS) to conduct this information collection under cooperative agreement #NU61TS000269–01–00. The purpose of the current program is to evaluate body burden levels of legacy and emerging contaminants in susceptible Great Lakes populations in the Milwaukee Estuary Area of Concern (AOC) in Wisconsin, an area that has not been previously covered by Great Lakes Biomonitoring Programs I and II. The Great Lakes Basin has suffered decades of pollution and ecosystem damage. Many chemicals persist in Great Lakes waters and sediments, as well as in wildlife. These chemicals can build up in the aquatic food chain, and eating contaminated fish is a known route of human exposure. In 2016, ATSDR initiated the Biomonitoring of Great Lakes Populations Program III to provide additional public health information to supplement the previous cooperative agreement programs CDC– RFA–TS10–1001 ‘‘Biomonitoring of Great Lakes Populations’’ (hereafter referred to as ‘‘Program I,’’ OMB Control Number 0923–0044) and CDC–RFA– TS13–1302 ‘‘Biomonitoring of Great Lakes Populations—II’’ (hereafter referred to as ‘‘Program II,’’ OMB Control Number 0923–0052) initiated in FY2010 and FY2013, respectively. WIDHS received funding for the current program. WIDHS will recruit and enroll two subpopulations of adults in the Milwaukee Bay Estuary Area of Concern (AOC) who are known to eat fish from the Milwaukee River Basin and Lake Michigan. This study will not include pregnant women. The target populations are: (1) Licensed anglers living in proximity to PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the Milwaukee Estuary AOC and (2) Burmese immigrants and their descendants who are known to eat a substantial amount of fish from this area. WIDHS study staff will work closely with local refugee and citizen support organizations on participant recruitment. The aims of the information collection in this surveillance project are: 1. Assess levels of contaminants (metals, polychlorinated biphenyls, chlorinated pesticides, perfluorinated compounds, and polyaromatic hydrocarbons) in blood and urine of residents who consume fish from contaminated areas that had not been studied in previous Programs I and II; 2. Use the project findings to inform public health officials and offer guidance on public health actions to reduce exposure to Great Lakes contaminants. This applied public health program aims to measure contaminants in biological samples (blood and urine) from people who may be at high risk of chemical exposure in the Great Lakes area. These measurements will provide a baseline for current and future restoration activities. The results will be compared to available national estimates, such as those reported by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). Respondents will be screened for eligibility and consent will be obtained. Participants who consent will respond to a questionnaire and participate in clinic visits for body measurements and biological specimen collection (blood, urine, and hair). Their blood will be tested for polychlorinated biphenyls, metals, perfluorinated compounds, persistent pesticides, and lipids. Urine will be tested for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and creatinine. The hair samples (optional) will be saved for a later analysis. Respondents will also be interviewed. They will be asked about demographic and lifestyle factors, hobbies, health conditions that may affect fish consumption and fishing habits, and types of jobs which can contribute to chemical exposure. Some dietary questions will be asked with a focus on consumption of Great Lakes fish. Participation in the study is voluntary. The estimated annualized burden for the program averaged over the three-year study period is a maximum of 225 hours. There is no cost to respondents other than their time spent in the study.

Proposed Project

    Biomonitoring of Great Lakes Populations Program III--New--Agency 
for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR).

Background and Brief Description

    The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is 
requesting a three-year Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) clearance for a 
new information collection request (ICR) titled ``Biomonitoring of 
Great Lakes Populations Program III.'' ATSDR awarded funds to the 
Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WIDHS) to conduct this 
information collection under cooperative agreement #NU61TS000269-01-00. 
The purpose of the current program is to evaluate body burden levels of 
legacy and emerging contaminants in susceptible Great Lakes populations 
in the Milwaukee Estuary Area of Concern (AOC) in Wisconsin, an area 
that has not been previously covered by Great Lakes Biomonitoring 
Programs I and II.
    The Great Lakes Basin has suffered decades of pollution and 
ecosystem damage. Many chemicals persist in Great Lakes waters and 
sediments, as well as in wildlife. These chemicals can build up in the 
aquatic food chain, and eating contaminated fish is a known route of 
human exposure. In 2016, ATSDR initiated the Biomonitoring of Great 
Lakes Populations Program III to provide additional public health 
information to supplement the previous cooperative agreement programs 
CDC-RFA-TS10-1001 ``Biomonitoring of Great Lakes Populations'' 
(hereafter referred to as ``Program I,'' OMB Control Number 0923-0044) 
and CDC-RFA-TS13-1302 ``Biomonitoring of Great Lakes Populations--II'' 
(hereafter referred to as ``Program II,'' OMB Control Number 0923-0052) 
initiated in FY2010 and FY2013, respectively.
    WIDHS received funding for the current program. WIDHS will recruit 
and enroll two subpopulations of adults in the Milwaukee Bay Estuary 
Area of Concern (AOC) who are known to eat fish from the Milwaukee 
River Basin and Lake Michigan. This study will not include pregnant 
women.
    The target populations are: (1) Licensed anglers living in

their descendants who are known to eat a substantial amount of fish 
from this area. WIDHS study staff will work closely with local refugee

    The aims of the information collection in this surveillance project 
are:
    1. Assess levels of contaminants (metals, polychlorinated

will provide a baseline for current and future restoration activities. 
The results will be compared to available national estimates, such as

(NHANES).
    Respondents will be screened for eligibility and consent will be

participate in clinic visits for body measurements and biological 
specimen collection (blood, urine, and hair). Their blood will be 
tested for polychlorinated biphenyls, metals, perfluorinated compounds, 
persistent pesticides, and lipids. Urine will be tested for polycyclic

be saved for a later analysis.
    Respondents will also be interviewed. They will be asked about 
demographic and lifestyle factors, hobbies, health conditions that may 
affect fish consumption and fishing habits, and types of jobs which can 
contribute to chemical exposure. Some dietary questions will be asked 
with a focus on consumption of Great Lakes fish.
