The Clean Water Act authorizes states [tribes] to assume the section 404 permit program for discharges of dredged or fill material into certain waters of the U.S. Implementing regulations establish specific information that must be submitted to EPA when a state/tribe requests program assumption and while administering the program. There are three types of information collected for different needs. The three parts are: 1) Information needed for EPA to review and approve state or tribal requests to assume the program; 2) information needed from permit applicants for reviewing and processing the permit application; and 3) information the state or tribe must submit to EPA in their annual report summarizing program administration.

There is an increase of 99,174 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. There are several reasons for this increase: 1) a small increase in the estimated hours to assume a program based on information provided by Michigan and New Jersey; 2) recent changes to policy addressing endangered species and historic preservation requiring; 3) including burden to State-assumed programs of permit review and to permittees; and 4) a small increase in the estimated hours for permit review by Michigan and New Jersey and for completing the annual report by Michigan. The estimated number of permits per state has been reduced based on data provided by New Jersey and Michigan.
