No facsimiles (faxes) will be accepted. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Additional information concerning the Draft General Permit may be obtained between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays from Nathan Chien, U.S. EPA Region 1, Water Division, 5 Post Office Square, Suite 100, Mail Code 06–1, Boston, MA 02109–3912; telephone: 617–918–1649; email: Chien.Nathan@ epa.gov. The Draft General Permit is based on an administrative record available for review at U.S. EPA Region 1, Water Division, 5 Post Office Square, Suite 100, Boston, Massachusetts 02109–3912. A reasonable fee may be charged for copying requests. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Public Comment Information: Interested persons may submit written comments on the Draft General Permit to EPA Region 1 at the address listed above. In reaching a final decision on this Draft General Permit, the Regional Administrator will respond to all significant comments and make responses available to the public at EPA’s Boston office. All comments must be postmarked or delivered by the close of the public comment period. General Information: The Draft General Permit includes effluent limitations and requirements for CAAP facilities and related dischargers based on technology and/or water quality considerations of the unique discharges from these facilities. The effluent limits established in the Draft General Permit ensure that the surface water quality standards of the receiving water(s) will be attained and/or maintained. Obtaining Authorization: To obtain coverage under the Draft General Permit, facilities meeting the eligibility requirements outlined in Part 4 of this General Permit may submit a notice of intent (NOI) in accordance with 40 CFR 122.28(b)(2)(i) & (ii). The contents of the NOI shall include at a minimum, the legal name and address of the owner or operator, the facility name and address, type of facility or discharges, the receiving stream(s) and be signed by the operator in accordance with the signatory requirements of 40 CFR 122.22. Alternately, based on 40 CFR 122.28(b)(2)(vi), the Director may notify a discharger that it is covered by a general permit, even if the discharger has not submitted an NOI to be covered. EPA has determined that the 14 facilities identified in Part 1 of the Fact Sheet all meet the eligibility requirements for coverage under the Draft General Permit and may be VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:05 May 08, 2020 Jkt 250001 authorized to discharge under the General Permit by this type of notification. Other Legal Requirements: In accordance with the Endangered Species Act (ESA), EPA has updated the provisions and necessary actions and documentation related to potential impacts to endangered species from sites seeking coverage under the Draft General Permit. Concurrently with the public notice of the Draft General Permit, EPA has submitted a letter to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries) summarizing the results of EPA’s assessment of the potential effects to endangered and threatened species and their critical habitats as a result of EPA’s issuance of the Draft General Permit. In this document, EPA has preliminarily concluded that the proposed issuance of the Draft General Permit is not likely to adversely affect the shortnose sturgeon, Atlantic sturgeon, or designated critical habitat for Atlantic sturgeon, as well as coastal protected whales and sea turtles and the North Atlantic right whale critical habitat. EPA has requested that NOAA Fisheries review this submittal and inform EPA whether it concurs with this preliminary finding. In the Fact Sheet accompanying the Draft AQUAGP, EPA has preliminarily concluded that the Draft AQUAGP will have ‘‘no effect’’ on endangered species under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The reason for this determination is because each NOI submission must assess site specific endangered species impacts using USFWS’ Information, Planning, and Conservation (IPaC) website, available at https://ecos.fws.gov/ipac/. By using this website, the applicant can either make a determination of impacts or if there are questions, seek input from the USFWS directly. Since each NOI is individually screened prior to submission, EPA has tentatively determined that the Draft AQUAGP will have ‘‘no effect.’’ EPA requests that USFWS review this submittal and inform EPA whether it concurs with this preliminary finding. Under the 1996 Amendments (Pub. L. 104–267) to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. (1998)), EPA is required to consult with NOAA Fisheries if EPA’s actions or proposed actions that it funds, permits or undertakes ‘‘may adversely impact any essential fish habitat’’ (EFH). 16 U.S.C. 1855(b). In the Fact Sheet accompanying the Draft AQUAGP, EPA notes that the general permit action minimizes adverse effects to aquatic organisms, including PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 those with designated EFH in the receiving waters, including Atlantic salmon and the life stages of a number of coastal EFH designated species. EPA has made the determination that additional mitigation is not warranted under Section 305(b)(2) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act and has provided this determination to NOAA Fisheries for their review. National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA): Facilities which adversely affect properties listed or eligible for listing in the National Registry of Historic Places under the NHPA are not authorized to discharge under the Draft General Permit. Based on the nature and location of the discharges, EPA has determined that the 14 facilities eligible for authorization under the Draft General Permit do not have the potential to affect a property that is either listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Authority: This action is being taken under the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq. Dated: May 4, 2020. Dennis Deziel, Regional Administrator.

1,000; consumer surveys, qualitative: 50; stakeholder surveys, 
quantitative: 800; stakeholder surveys, qualitative: 50.
    Estimated average hours per response: Consumer surveys,

    General description of report: The Board uses this collection to 
seek input from users or potential users of the Board's publications, 
resources, and conference materials to understand their interests and 
needs; to inform decisions concerning content, design, and 
dissemination strategies; to gauge public awareness of the Board's 
publications, resources, and conferences; and to assess the 
effectiveness of the Board's communications with various respondents.
    The surveys in this collection are used to gather qualitative and 
quantitative information directly from users or potential users of 
Board publications, resources, and conference materials, such as 
consumers (consumer surveys) and stakeholders (stakeholder surveys). 
Stakeholders may include, but are not limited to, nonprofits, community 
development organizations, consumer groups, conference attendees, 
financial institutions and other financial companies offering consumer 
financial products and services, other for profit companies, state or 
local agencies, and researchers from academic, government, policy, and 
other institutions.
    The frequency of the survey and content of the questions will vary 
as needs arise for feedback on different resources and from different 
audiences.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR 1378 is authorized 
by sections 2A and 12A of the Federal Reserve Act (FRA). Section 2A of 
the FRA requires that the Board and the Federal Open Market Committee 
(FOMC) ``maintain long run growth of the monetary and credit aggregates 
commensurate with the economy's long run potential to increase 
production, so as to promote effectively the goals of the maximum 
employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates.'' 
Under section 12A of the FRA, the FOMC is required to implement 
regulations relating to the open market operations conducted by Federal 
Reserve Banks ``with a view to accommodating commerce and business and 
with regard to their bearing upon the general credit situation of the 
country.'' The information collection under the FR 1378 is used to 
fulfill these obligations.
    In addition, the Board is responsible for implementing and drafting 
regulations and interpretations for various consumer protection laws. 
The information obtained from the FR 1378 may be used in support of the 
Board's development and implementation of regulatory provisions for 
these laws. Therefore, depending on the survey questions asked, the FR 
1378 may be authorized pursuant to the Board's authority under one or 
more of those consumer protection statutes.
