(e) Alteration of an EPA or other form prescribed in this Regulation except as authorized herein;

(f) When limitations are imposed by this Regulation upon the use of a grant clause, form procedure, or any other grant action, the imposition of lesser or greater limitations; or

(g) When a policy, procedure, method or practice of administering or conducting grant actions is prescribed by this Regulation,

Requests for deviations from this Regulation shall be submitted as far in advance as the exigencies of the situation will permit. Where the deviation would involve more than a unique special situation, e.g., will affect grantees as a class, concurrence in the request for deviation by the appropriate Assistant or Regional Administrator(s) will be additionally required. Each request for a deviation shall contain as a minimum:

(a) Identification of the section of this Regulation from which a deviation is sought;

(b) A full description of the deviation and the circumstances in which it will be used;

(c) A description of the intended effect of the deviation;

(d) A statement as to whether the deviation has been requested previously, and if so, circumstances of the previous request;

(e) The name of the grantee and identification of the grant affected, including the dollar value; and

(f) Detailed reasons supporting the request, including any pertinent background information which will contribute to a fuller understanding of the deviation sought. $ 30.1001–3 Approval of deviation.

Deviations from this Regulation will be authorized only when essential to effect necessary grant actions or where special circumstances make such deviations clearly in the best interests of the Government. Such deviations may be approved only by the Director of the Grants Administration Division or his duly authorized representative, and a copy of such written approval shall be retained in the grant file.

GRANTS $ 35.200 Purpose.

These provisions establish and codify policies and procedures for grants to planning agencies for the development of comprehensive water pollution control and abatement plans for basins. These provisions supplement the EPA general grant regulations (40 CFR Part 30). $ 35.201 Authority.

These provisions for water quality planning grants are issued under section 3(c) of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as amended, 33 U.S.C. 1153(c). $ 35.202 Definitions.

As used herein, the following words and terms shall have the meaning set forth below: $ 35.202–1 Administrative expenses.

Approved allowable costs incurred for the development of a water pollution control comprehensive basin plan pursuant to $ 35.225. $ 35.202–2 Basin.

A planning area. A basin includes, but is not limited to, rivers and their tributaries, streams, coastal waters, sounds, estuaries, bays, lakes, and portions thereof as well as lands drained thereby, and discrete deposits of subsurface water. 8 35.202–3 State.

A State, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam. $ 35.2054 Grant limitations.

Water quality management planning grants shall be subject to the following limitations:

(a) No grant may exceed 50 per centum of the administrative expenses of the planning agency.

(b) No project period may exceed 3 years, beginning with the project commencement date approved at the time of initial grant award. $ 35.210 Eligibility.

To be eligible for a water quality management planning grant, a planning agency must:

(a) Be designated by the Governor of the State or (where the basin includes

portions of more than one State) by the majority of Governors of the States, as the agency having primary responsibility for water quality planning in the basin.

(b) Be an entity of government legally constituted or authorized under the laws of the State or States in which the basin for which it has planning responsibility is located. $ 35.215 Application requirements.

An application for a water quality management planning grant shall be submitted in accordance with 40 CFR 30.301 through 30.301-5 to the appropriate Regional Administrator and shall:

(a) Include a letter from the Governor or, when more than one State is involved, the majority of Governors of the States, designating the applicant as the planning agency having primary responsibility for water quality planning in the basin.

(b) Include a work plan which con. tains the following information:

(1) Explanation of the need for the planning study.

(2) Description of the objectives and scope of the study.

(3) Background information on the basin and the water pollution problem in the basin.

(4) Description of the manner in which the planning study will be conducted and the methodology to be used.

(5) Description of the action to be taken by agencies other than the applicant participating in the study.

(6) Schedule of work to be accomplished.

(7) Detailed cost and resource budget.

(8) Identification of anticipated subagreements.

(c) Indicate the applicant's capability, including all necessary resources, powers, authority, and jurisdiction to develop a water pollution control comprehensive basin plan.

(d) Provide for the continuing participation of public and private State, interstate, local, and (where appropriate) international officials and interests in the basin throughout the planning process.

(e) Give assurance that the planning program will develop recommendations for maintaining and improving water quality standards in the basin in accordance with the requirements of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act.
