Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 46988 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 194 / Tuesday, October 10, 2017 / Notices must be submitted by the state/tribe to EPA to request assumption and must be sufficient to enable EPA to undertake a thorough analysis of the state/tribal program. Once the required information and documents are submitted and EPA has a complete assumption request package, the statutory time clock for EPA’s decision to either approve or disapprove the state/tribe’s assumption request starts. The information contained in the assumption request submission is provided to the Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service and to the public for review and comment. States/tribes with assumed programs must be able to issue permits that assure compliance with all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, including the 404(b)(1) Guidelines. Sufficient information must be provided in the application so that states/tribes and federal agencies reviewing the permit can evaluate, avoid, minimize and compensate for any anticipated impacts resulting from the proposed project. EPA’s assumption regulations establish required elements that must be included in the state/tribe’s permit application, so that sufficient information is available to make a thorough analysis of anticipated impacts. (40 CFR 233.30). These minimum information requirements generally reflect the information that must be submitted when applying for a section 404 permit from the Army Corps of Engineers. EPA has an oversight role for assumed 404 permitting programs to ensure that state/tribal programs comply with applicable requirements and that state/ tribal permit decisions adequately consider, avoid, minimize and compensate for anticipated impacts. States/tribes must evaluate their programs annually and submit the results in a report to EPA. EPA’s assumption regulations establish minimum requirements for the annual report (40 CFR 233.52). The information included in the state/ tribe’s assumption request and the information included in a permit application is made available for public review and comment. The information included in the annual report to EPA is made available to the public. EPA does not make any assurances of confidentiality for this information. (CWA section 404(h); CWA section 404(j); 40 CFR 230.10, 233.20, 233.21, 233.34, and 233.50; and 33 CFR 325) Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: States/ tribes requesting assumption of the CWA section 404 permit program; states/tribes with approved assumed VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Oct 06, 2017 Jkt 244001 programs; and permit applicants in states/tribes with assumed programs. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Required to obtain or retain a benefit (40 CFR 233). Estimated number of respondents: 2 states/tribes requesting program assumption; 11,900 permit applications; and 4 states/tribes that will submit an annual report. Frequency of response: Once for states/tribes to request assumption; annually for states/tribes submitting the annual report; and once for permit applicants when requesting a permit. Total estimated burden: 119,707 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: Costs to states for assumed Section 404 permit programs will vary widely by state and permit, however there are no capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 28,747 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase reflects an increase in hours spent reviewing each permit. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.
