Download as PDF daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 18554 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 82 / Friday, April 27, 2018 / Notices ‘‘certified applicators’’ or by persons under the direct supervision of certified applicators. This ICR addresses instances in which registrants of certain pesticide products are required to perform specific paperwork activities, such as training and recordkeeping, as a condition of the pesticide registration (e.g., registrants of pesticide products that assert claims to inactivate Bacillus anthracis (anthrax) spores). To become a certified applicator, a person must meet certain standards of competency through completion of a certification program or test. Authorized agencies administer certified applicator programs within their jurisdictions, but each agency’s certification plan must be approved by EPA before it can be implemented. In areas where no authorized agency has jurisdiction, EPA may administer a certification program directly. This ICR also addresses how registrants of certain pesticide products are expected to perform specific, special paperwork activities, such as training and recordkeeping, in order to comply with the terms and conditions of the pesticide registration (e.g., registrants of anthrax-related pesticide products that assert claims to inactivate Bacillus anthracis spores). Paperwork activities associated with the use of such products are conveyed specifically as a condition of the registration. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average, per response type, as follows: 4,409 hours—annual reporting of authorized agencies on certification programs; 184 hours for completing certification application forms in Indian country; 73 hours for optional training—private applicator in Indian country; 2,412 hours RUP application recordkeeping—commercial applicators in the Federal plan; 1,371,638 hours RUP application records—commercial applicators under authorized agencies; 96 hours RUP sales recordkeeping—dealers in Indian country to prepare and maintain required annual RUP use records; 16 hours for dealerships to report or change their dealership information; 50 hours for registrants of anthrax-related products to prepare and conduct training activities; and 37 hours for registrants of anthrax-related products to keep records. Burden is defined in 5 CFR 1320.3(b). The ICR, which is available in the docket along with other related materials, provides a detailed explanation of the collection activities and the burden estimate that is only briefly summarized here: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:18 Apr 26, 2018 Jkt 244001 Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are pesticide applicators, administration of certification programs by States/Tribal lead agencies (authorized agencies), individuals or entities engaged in activities related to the registration of a pesticide product, and RUP dealers (only for EPA administered programs). Estimated total number of potential respondents: Per response type, average annual respondents are: 57 authorized agencies report on certification programs; 1,085 applicants complete a certification form under the Federal plan; 6 private applicators complete the optional training under the Federal plan; 778 commercial applicators keep records of RUP applications under the Federal plan; 442,464 commercial applicators keep records of RUP application under authorized agencies’ plan; 49 dealers of RUPs keep records of RUP transactions in Indian country; 16 dealerships report or change their dealership information; two registrants of anthrax-related products prepare and conduct training activities; and two registrants of anthrax-related products keep records. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: Varies. Estimated total annual burden hours: 1,378,914.92 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $53,026,275.92. This includes an estimated burden cost of $53,026,275.92 and an estimated cost of $0 for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. III. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval? There is an increase of 58,660.92 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase reflects EPA’s updating of burden estimates, addition of a recentlyimplemented optional, voluntary offering, and a change in the number of entities whose certification programs are directly overseen by EPA. The burden changes are the result of both adjustments and program changes. IV. What is the next step in the process for this ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. EPA will issue another Federal Register document pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 comments to OMB. If you have any questions about this ICR or the approval process, please contact the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Dated: April 17, 2018.

ACTION: Notice of proposed issuance of NPDES General Permit and request for public comment. AGENCY: The Director, Office of Water and Watersheds, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 10, is proposing to issue a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) General Permits for Hydroelectric Facilities discharging to waters within the State of Idaho (Permit No. IDG360000). As proposed, the hydroelectric general permit would protect surface waters from discharges of oil, grease and alterations to pH from facility and equipment outfalls and minimize the impacts of the cooling water intake structures to fish and aquatic organisms. DATES: Comments must be received by June 11, 2018. ADDRESSES: Comments on the draft General Permit should be sent to Director, Office of Water and Watersheds; USEPA Region 10; 1200 Sixth Avenue, Suite 155, OWW–191; daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:18 Apr 26, 2018 Jkt 244001 18555 Seattle, WA 98101 and may also be submitted by fax to (206) 553–1280 or electronically to keenan.dru@epa.gov. Comments on the draft 401Certification should be sent to Loren Moore, Idaho Department of Environmental Quality, 1410 N. Hilton, Boise, Idaho 83706 or electronically to Loren.Moore@deq.idaho.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Permit documents may be found on the EPA Region 10 website at: https:// www.epa.gov/npdes-permits/draftnpdes-general-permit-hydroelectricgenerating-facilities-idaho. Copies of the draft general permit and Fact Sheet are also available upon request. Requests may be made to Audrey Washington at (206) 553–0523 or to Dru Keenan at (206) 553–1219. Requests may also be electronically mailed to: Washington.audrey@epa.gov, or keenan.dru@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 401 of the CWA, compliance with Endangered Species Act, Essential Fish Habitat, Paperwork Reduction Act, and other requirements are discussed in the Fact Sheet to the proposed permit. I. General Information AGENCY: As proposed, the hydroelectric general permit would authorize five types of discharges from hydroelectric facilities: Equipment related cooling water, equipment and floor drain water, certain maintenance related waters, maintenance-related water during flood/ high water events and backwash strainer water, and combinations of the preceding discharges. The general permit establishes notification requirements, permit eligibility requirements, effluent limitations, standards, prohibitions, best management practice plans, and impingement and entrainment prevention plans per 316(b) of the CWA. A description of the basis for the conditions and requirements of the draft general permit is given in the Fact Sheet. Owners and/or operators of hydroelectric generating facilities with these discharges, including those facilities currently authorized to discharge under individual permits, are eligible to apply for coverage. Facilities will receive a written notification from the EPA whether permit coverage and authorization to discharge under the general permit is approved. The general permit does not cover new sources as defined under 40 CFR 122.2. II. Other Legal Requirements This action is not a significant regulatory action and was therefore not submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review under Executive Orders 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review.
