SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 SUMMARY: I. Abstract This request is for a revision and extension of a currently approved information collection. NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey (Coast Survey) is the nation’s nautical VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:07 Mar 22, 2022 Jkt 256001 chartmaker, maintaining and updating over a thousand charts covering the 3.5 million square nautical miles of coastal waters in the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone and the Great Lakes. The marine transportation system relies on charting accuracy and precision to keep navigation safe and coastal communities protected from environmental disasters at sea. Coast Survey also writes and publishes the United States Coast Pilot® (Coast Pilot), a series of ten nautical books that supplement nautical charts with essential marine information that cannot be shown graphically on the charts and are not readily available elsewhere. Subjects include, but are not limited to, channel descriptions, anchorages, bridge and cable clearances, tides and tidal currents, prominent features, pilotage, towage, weather, ice conditions, wharf descriptions, dangers, routes, traffic separation schemes, small craft facilities and Federal Regulations applicable to navigation. The marine environment and shorelines are constantly changing. NOAA makes every effort to update information portrayed in charts and described in the Coast Pilot. Sources of information include, but are not limited to: Pilot associations, shipping companies, towboat operators, state marine authorities, city marine authorities, local port authorities, marine operators, hydrographic research vessels, naval vessels, Coast Guard cutters, merchant vessels, fishing vessels, pleasure boats, U.S. Power Squadron Units, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Units, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The purpose of NOAA’s Nautical Discrepancy and Data Reporting System is to offer formal, standardized instruments for recommending changes, corrections, and updates to nautical charts and the Coast Pilot, and to monitor and document the accepted changes. Coast Survey solicits information through the Aimed Stakeholder Interaction and Survey Tool (ASSIST) (https:// www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/customerservice/assist/). This collection also includes a Citizen Science component, which allows boating groups or individuals to submit reports to update the charts. The Citizen Science component to the collection benefits Coast Survey by allowing the public to ‘‘adopt’’ a product or part of a product and provide annual data updates that directly affect that product or products. Data obtained through Citizen Science reports may be used to update certain U.S. nautical charts and the Coast Pilot. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Nautical Data Branch (NDB) receives numerous potential construction notifications in the form of USACE-issued Public Notices, Permit Applications, and Permits, which could include a proposal or authorization to dredge and/or construct, remove, or abandon structures. NDB vets these Public Notices, Permit Applications, or Permits for the potential of a charting action and registers them into a database. To facilitate the ability of NDB to learn the status of USACE-permitted projects and to obtain as-built and/or survey data associated with the completion of these projects, Coast Survey is proposing to add three Project Status Report Forms to the collection. The solicitation forms, titled Permit/ Public Notice Status Report, Artificial Reef/Mariculture Status Report, and Submerged Pipeline Status Report Form, provide a standardized method for reporting project statuses to the Nautical Data Branch and provide special instructions regarding the submission of digital as-builts and/or survey data. Upon receipt of the forms, NDB may register the forms, along with the USACE Permit and any as-built data, into the Marine Chart Division’s (MCD) internal database in support of potential updates to the applicable NOAA nautical chart(s). These forms provide an effective way for permittees to notify MCD of the status of their permitted projects and help MCD garner pertinent data necessary for chart application. This mode of data delivery facilitates the ability of NDB to capture complete, more efficient, registration-ready source packages that require less frequent correspondence with the permittee prior to source registration. This process is instrumental in accelerating the availability of important, and/or possibly critical, nautical data to the cartographic production branches for charting action. The title of this collection is also being updated from Nautical Discrepancy Reporting System to Nautical Discrepancy and Data Reporting System. II. Method of Collection Respondents can submit discrepancy reports electronically through the ASSIST website or by telephone (888– 990–6622). Status Report Forms: Every month, NDB mails customized versions of the previously mentioned status report forms to a different batch of permittees, requesting information on the completion status of their permitted projects. If a permittee would like to notify the Marine Chart Division (MCD) E:\FR\FM\23MRN1.SGM 23MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 56 / Wednesday, March 23, 2022 / Notices of the completion of their project before receiving a customized version of a status report form from NDB, blank status report forms can be acquired from the Coast Survey website, or the forms may be emailed by NDB to the permittee upon request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for a revision and extension of a currently 
approved information collection.
    NOAA's Office of Coast Survey (Coast Survey) is the nation's 
nautical chartmaker, maintaining and updating over a thousand charts 
covering the 3.5 million square nautical miles of coastal waters in the 
U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone and the Great Lakes. The marine 
transportation system relies on charting accuracy and precision to keep 
navigation safe and coastal communities protected from environmental 
disasters at sea.
    Coast Survey also writes and publishes the United States Coast 
Pilot[supreg] (Coast Pilot), a series of ten nautical books that 
supplement nautical charts with essential marine information that 
cannot be shown graphically on the charts and are not readily available 
elsewhere. Subjects include, but are not limited to, channel 
descriptions, anchorages, bridge and cable clearances, tides and tidal 
currents, prominent features, pilotage, towage, weather, ice 
conditions, wharf descriptions, dangers, routes, traffic separation 
schemes, small craft facilities and Federal Regulations applicable to 
navigation.
    The marine environment and shorelines are constantly changing. NOAA 
makes every effort to update information portrayed in charts and 
described in the Coast Pilot. Sources of information include, but are 
not limited to: Pilot associations, shipping companies, towboat 
operators, state marine authorities, city marine authorities, local 
port authorities, marine operators, hydrographic research vessels, 
naval vessels, Coast Guard cutters, merchant vessels, fishing vessels, 
pleasure boats, U.S. Power Squadron Units, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary 
Units, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
    The purpose of NOAA's Nautical Discrepancy and Data Reporting 
System is to offer formal, standardized instruments for recommending 
changes, corrections, and updates to nautical charts and the Coast 
Pilot, and to monitor and document the accepted changes. Coast Survey 
solicits information through the Aimed Stakeholder Interaction and 
Survey Tool (ASSIST) (https://www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/customer-service/assist/).
    This collection also includes a Citizen Science component, which 
allows boating groups or individuals to submit reports to update the 
charts. The Citizen Science component to the collection benefits Coast 
Survey by allowing the public to ``adopt'' a product or part of a 
product and provide annual data updates that directly affect that 
product or products. Data obtained through Citizen Science reports may 
be used to update certain U.S. nautical charts and the Coast Pilot.
    The Nautical Data Branch (NDB) receives numerous potential 
construction notifications in the form of USACE-issued Public Notices, 
Permit Applications, and Permits, which could include a proposal or 
authorization to dredge and/or construct, remove, or abandon 
structures. NDB vets these Public Notices, Permit Applications, or 
Permits for the potential of a charting action and registers them into 
a database. To facilitate the ability of NDB to learn the status of 
USACE-permitted projects and to obtain as-built and/or survey data 
associated with the completion of these projects, Coast Survey is 
proposing to add three Project Status Report Forms to the collection. 
The solicitation forms, titled Permit/Public Notice Status Report, 
Artificial Reef/Mariculture Status Report, and Submerged Pipeline 
Status Report Form, provide a standardized method for reporting project 
statuses to the Nautical Data Branch and provide special instructions 
regarding the submission of digital as-builts and/or survey data. Upon 
receipt of the forms, NDB may register the forms, along with the USACE 
Permit and any as-built data, into the Marine Chart Division's (MCD) 
internal database in support of potential updates to the applicable 
NOAA nautical chart(s).
    These forms provide an effective way for permittees to notify MCD 
of the status of their permitted projects and help MCD garner pertinent 
data necessary for chart application. This mode of data delivery 
facilitates the ability of NDB to capture complete, more efficient, 
registration-ready source packages that require less frequent 
correspondence with the permittee prior to source registration. This 
process is instrumental in accelerating the availability of important, 
and/or possibly critical, nautical data to the cartographic production 
branches for charting action.
    The title of this collection is also being updated from Nautical 
Discrepancy Reporting System to Nautical Discrepancy and Data Reporting 
System.

II. Method of Collection

    Respondents can submit discrepancy reports electronically through 
the ASSIST website or by telephone (888-990-6622).
    Status Report Forms: Every month, NDB mails customized versions of 
the previously mentioned status report forms to a different batch of 
permittees, requesting information on the completion status of their 
permitted projects. If a permittee would like to notify the Marine 
Chart Division (MCD)

[[Page 16463]]

of the completion of their project before receiving a customized 
version of a status report form from NDB, blank status report forms can 
be acquired from the Coast Survey website, or the forms may be emailed 
by NDB to the permittee upon request.
    After completion, respondents can submit the Status Report Forms, 
and provide any associated as-built/survey data, to NDB by mail or via 
email.
