Abstract: This ICR covers the usage of TANAs with members of the impacted community in order to determine how the community is receiving technical information about a Superfund remedial or removal site; whether the community requires additional assistance in order to understand and respond to siterelated technical information; and whether there are organizations in the community that are interested or involved in site-related issues and capable of acting as an appropriate conduit for technical assistance services to the affected community. Given the specific nature of the TANA, 8 to 10 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:09 Sep 18, 2018 Jkt 244001 persons will be interviewed per site, with an estimated total of 80 persons being interviewed per year (8 sites). Responses to the collection of information are voluntary and the names of respondents will be protected by the Privacy Act. The TANA will help ensure the community’s needs for technical information assistance are defined as early in the remedial/removal process as possible and enable meaningful community involvement in the Superfund decision-making process. Additionally, the TANA process produces a blueprint for designing a coordinated effort to meet the community’s needs for additional technical assistance while minimizing the overlap of services provided.

SIC Codes are OSHA’s Standard Industrial Classification System used to identify different groups. Local/state governments are categorized as Division J: Public Administration, Major Group 95: Administration of Environmental Quality, subgroup 9511: Air and Water Resource and Solid Waste Management. The other respondents, community members, do not have a SIC Code as they do not constitute an industry. Respondent’s obligation to respond: voluntary. Estimated number of respondents: 80 (per year).

    Pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, EPA is soliciting 
comments and information to enable it to: (i) Evaluate whether the 
proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper 
performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the

the Agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions

The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and 
approval. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice 
to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to 
submit additional comments to OMB.
    Abstract: This ICR covers the usage of TANAs with members of the 
impacted community in order to determine how the community is receiving 
technical information about a Superfund remedial or removal site; 
whether the community requires additional assistance in order to 
understand and respond to site-related technical information; and 
whether there are organizations in the community that are interested or 
involved in site-related issues and capable of acting as an appropriate 
conduit for technical assistance services to the affected community. 
Given the specific nature of the TANA, 8 to 10 persons will be 
interviewed per site, with an estimated total of 80 persons being 
interviewed per year (8 sites). Responses to the collection of 
information are voluntary and the names of respondents will be 
protected by the Privacy Act. The TANA will help ensure the community's 
needs for technical information assistance are defined as early in the 
remedial/removal process as possible and enable meaningful community 
involvement in the Superfund decision-making process. Additionally, the 
TANA process produces a blueprint for designing a coordinated effort to 
meet the community's needs for additional technical assistance while 
minimizing the overlap of services provided.
    Form numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Respondents to this ICR are local/
state government officials, potentially-responsible party (PRP) 
representatives, community organizations, businesses and individuals 
who may be impacted by a Superfund site or a removal action lasting 120 
days or longer. These community members voluntarily participate in 
community involvement activities throughout the remedial phase of the 
Superfund process. SIC Codes are OSHA's Standard Industrial 
Classification System used to identify different groups. Local/state 
governments are categorized as Division J: Public Administration, Major 
Group 95: Administration of Environmental Quality, subgroup 9511: Air 
and Water Resource and Solid Waste Management. The other respondents, 
community members, do not have a SIC Code as they do not constitute an 
industry.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: voluntary.
    Estimated number of respondents: 80 (per year).
    Frequency of response: Once during the remediation of the Site. 
Each TANA interview is expected to last approximately one hour in 
duration.
    Total estimated burden: 80 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 
CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $1,860 (per year), includes $0 annualized 
capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: A reduction in the total estimated respondent 
burden is expected when compared with the ICR currently approved by 
OMB.
