Abstract: The USGS is authorized under SECURE Water Act Section 9508 to assist state water resource agencies with improving their water use data collection activities. USGS has implemented the Water Use Data and Research program (WUDR), to work with state water agencies in gathering and analyzing their data, and assists this effort via cooperative agreements. WUDR will be used to improve the collection and reporting of water-use categories by state agencies, including categories of water use that were previously discontinued due to limited resources. This collection will also be used in reports to Congress on water resources in the nation. The total authorized funding in FY18 for the Water Use Data and Research Program is $1,500,000; total program authorization is $12,500,000 for a period of five years. Cooperative agreements will be announced and awarded as part of a competitive process that will be guided, annually, by a technical committee whose members will include representatives from the stakeholder community as well as USGS. Water Use Data and Research Program funds will be coordinated with a single agency in each State. Collaboration and coordination with USGS personnel will be required as part of the WUDR program. Data must be stored electronically and made available in machine readable formats that can be incorporated into USGS databases. Additionally, methods used for data collection (estimated values, coefficients, etc.) and a description of data quality assurance and control must be provided to the USGS. Title of Collection: USGS Water Use Data and Research Program. OMB Control Number: 1028–0118. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State water-resource agencies that collect water-use data. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: The WUDR program estimates that 30 respondents will read the Program Announcement, 14 respondents will submit applications, and 12 respondents will submit semiannual progress reports and a final technical report. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 14 applications, 24 progress reports, and 12 final technical reports.

Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 974 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory to be eligible to receive funding. Frequency of Collection: Program Announcements are published annually. Proposals are submitted annually by State water-resource agencies wishing to compete for funding as related to the annual Program Announcement. State water-resource agencies that receive a cooperative agreement must submit semi-annual progress reports and a final technical report. Total Estimated Annual Non-hour Burden Cost: None. An agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
