Abstract: In 1993, EPA began compiling information on fish advisories provided by the states in its biannual 305(b) Water Quality Inventory Reports. In 1994, EPA’s Office of Water began conducting a voluntary annual Fish Program Survey to obtain the most up-to-date information on fish advisories. This information is collected under the authority of section 104 of the Clean Water Act, which provides for the collection of information to be used to protect human health and the environment. The advisory information collected identifies the waterbody under advisory, the fish or shellfish species and size ranges included in the advisory, the chemical contaminants and residue levels causing the advisory to be issued, the waterbody type (river, lake, estuary, coastal waters), and the target populations to whom the advisory is directed. The results of the survey are shared with states, territories, tribes, other federal agencies, and the public through an online database. The responses to the survey are voluntary and the information requested is part of the state/tribal public record associated with the advisories. No confidential business information is requested. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Administrators of Public Health and Environmental Quality Programs in state and tribal governments (NAICS 92312/SIC 9431 and NAICS 92411/SIC 9511). Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary, (Clean Water Act, Section 104). Estimated number of respondents: 100 states, territories and tribes. Frequency of response: Annual. Total estimated burden: 2,468 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $110,517.20 (per year), which includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 Jul 19, 2018 Jkt 244001 Changes in the estimates: There is an increase of 584 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. The increase is due to revised hourly burden estimates based on input from three states and the addition of two new activities to increase communication, engagement, information sharing and support between the EPA and the states, territories and tribes.
