The Susquehanna River, with its streams and tributaries, is the largest river system lying entirely within the United States that drains into the Atlantic Ocean. Water from the Susquehanna River is used for drinking, manufacturing, agriculture, and power generation, and also provides habitat for fish and opportunities for outdoor recreation. Stormwater runoff and excess nutrients and sediment have increased algae, decreased fish health, and have resulted in closed beaches due to bacteria. As a result of these and other events, water managers in the Susquehanna River Basin are reviewing private citizens’ river uses, perceptions, and the economic value of improved water quality. USGS economists will conduct an economic survey of private households in Pennsylvania to help local decision makers achieve this review. These values will be estimated via a mail survey instrument. The primary goal of conducting this valuation study is to improve the way in which communities frame the choice regarding the allocation of scarce resources and to clarify the trade-offs between alternative outcomes. No such prior analysis has been conducted in the Susquehanna River Basin. The information collection process will be conducted by scientists and staff in the Social and Economic Analysis Branch of the USGS, and partnering researchers in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at Colorado State University. This information collection will be conducted through an online survey with an optional paper survey. Letters and postcards will be mailed to potential respondents to encourage participation in the survey. We will protect information from respondents considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, ‘‘Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection.’’ Responses are voluntary. No questions of a ‘‘sensitive’’ nature are asked. Frequency of Collection: One time only. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 2,500. Estimated Time per Response: 2 minutes to review instructions, 13 minutes to complete survey. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 625 hours.

values for changes in water quality within the Susquehanna River Basin 
located in Pennsylvania. The Susquehanna River, with its streams and 
tributaries, is the largest river system lying entirely within the 
United States that drains into the Atlantic Ocean. Water from the 
Susquehanna River is used for drinking, manufacturing, agriculture, and 
power generation, and also provides habitat for fish and opportunities 
for outdoor recreation. Stormwater runoff and excess nutrients and 
sediment have increased algae, decreased fish health, and have resulted 
in closed beaches due to bacteria. As a result of these and other

private citizens' river uses, perceptions, and the economic value of 
improved water quality. USGS economists will conduct an economic survey

instrument. The primary goal of conducting this valuation study is to 
improve the way in which communities frame the choice regarding the
