    Title: U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous 
Materials Safety Administration 811 Awareness Survey.
    OMB Control Number: Pending.
    Type of Request: New information collection.
    Abstract: PHMSA is conducting a survey of awareness of 811 as the 
national ``Call Before You Dig'' toll-free telephone number, the 
importance of calling 811 before beginning an excavation project and 
the extent to which the newly-released PHMSA PSA is effective in 
raising awareness about this topic. This data is necessary to measure 
the effectiveness of the PSA campaign and plan future educational and 
outreach efforts.
    Affected Public: All.
    Estimated number of responses: 1,000.
    Estimated annual burden hours: 120.
    Frequency of collection: One time collection.
    Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including 
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology. A comment to OMB is most effective if OMB 
receives it within 30 days of the date of this notice's publication in 
the Federal Register.

    Authority:  The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C.
