Pursuant to the Boulder Canyon Project Act (43 U.S.C. 617; Pub. L. 70–642, 45 Stat. 1057), all diversion of mainstream Colorado River water must be in accordance with a Colorado River water entitlement. The Consolidated Decree of the United States Supreme Court in Arizona v. California, 547 U.S. 150 (2006) requires the Secretary of the Interior to account for all diversions of mainstream Colorado River water along the lower Colorado River, including water drawn from the mainstream by underground pumping. To meet the water entitlement and accounting obligations, an inventory of wells and river pumps is required along the lower Colorado River, and the gathering of specific information concerning these wells. Title of Collection: Lower Colorado River Well Inventory. OMB Control Number: 1006–0014. Form Numbers: Form LC–25. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Well and river-pump owners and operators along the lower Colorado River in Arizona, California, and Nevada. Each diverter (including well pumpers) must be identified and their diversion locations and water use determined. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 150. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 150. Estimated Completion Time per Respondent: An average of 20 minutes is required to interview individual well and river-pump owners or operators. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 50 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: These data are collected only once for each well or river-pump owner or operator as long as changes in water use, or other changes that would impact contractual or administrative requirements, are not made. A respondent may request that the data for its well or river pump be updated after the initial inventory. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: None. An agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The authority for this action is the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Karl Stock, Acting Regional Director, Lower Colorado Basin.
