TITLE 33 - NAVIGATION AND NAVIGABLE WATERS

CHAPTER 15 - FLOOD CONTROL

-HEAD-

Sec. 701-1. Declaration of policy of 1944 act

-STATUTE-

In connection with the exercise of jurisdiction over the rivers

of the Nation through the construction of works of improvement, for

navigation or flood control, as herein authorized, it is declared

to be the policy of the Congress to recognize the interests and

rights of the States in determining the development of the

watersheds within their borders and likewise their interests and

rights in water utilization and control, as herein authorized to

preserve and protect to the fullest possible extent established and

potential uses, for all purposes, of the waters of the Nation's

rivers; to facilitate the consideration of projects on a basis of

comprehensive and coordinated development; and to limit the

authorization and construction of navigation works to those in

which a substantial benefit to navigation will be realized

therefrom and which can be operated consistently with appropriate

and economic use of the waters of such rivers by other users.

In conformity with this policy:

(a) Plans, proposals, or reports of the Chief of Engineers,

Department of the Army, for any works of improvement for navigation

or flood control not heretofore or herein authorized, shall be

submitted to the Congress only upon compliance with the provisions

of this paragraph (a). Investigations which form the basis of any

such plans, proposals, or reports shall be conducted in such a

manner as to give to the affected State or States, during the

course of the investigations, information developed by the

investigations and also opportunity for consultation regarding

plans and proposals, and, to the extent deemed practicable by the

Chief of Engineers, opportunity to cooperate in the investigations.

If such investigations in whole or part are concerned with the use

or control of waters arising west of the ninety-seventh meridian,

the Chief of Engineers shall give to the Secretary of the Interior,

during the course of the investigations, information developed by

the investigations and also opportunity for consultation regarding

plans and proposals, and to the extent deemed practicable by the

Chief of Engineers, opportunity to cooperate in the investigations.

The relations of the Chief of Engineers with any State under this

paragraph (a) shall be with the Governor of the State or such

official or agency of the State as the Governor may designate. The

term "affected State or States" shall include those in which the

works or any part thereof are proposed to be located; those which

in whole or part are both within the drainage basin involved and

situated in a State lying wholly or in part west of the

ninety-eighth meridian; and such of those which are east of the

ninety-eighth meridian as, in the judgment of the Chief of

Engineers, will be substantially affected. Such plans, proposals,

or reports and related investigations shall be made to the end,

among other things, of facilitating the coordination of plans for

the construction and operation of the proposed works with other

plans involving the waters which would be used or controlled by

such proposed works. Each report submitting any such plans or

proposals to the Congress shall set out therein, among other

things, the relationship between the plans for construction and

operation of the proposed works and the plans, if any, submitted by

the affected States and by the Secretary of the Interior. The Chief

of Engineers shall transmit a copy of his proposed report to each

affected State, and, in case the plans or proposals covered by the

report are concerned with the use or control of waters which rise

in whole or in part west of the ninety-seventh meridian, to the

Secretary of the Interior. Within 30 days from the date of receipt

of said proposed report, the written views and recommendations of

each affected State and of the Secretary of the Interior may be

submitted to the Chief of Engineers. The Secretary of the Army

shall transmit to the Congress, with such comments and

recommendations as he deems appropriate, the proposed report

together with the submitted views and recommendations of affected

States and of the Secretary of the Interior. The Secretary of the

Army may prepare and make said transmittal any time following said

30-day period. The letter of transmittal and its attachments shall

be printed as a House or Senate document.

(b) The use for navigation, in connection with the operation and

maintenance of such works herein authorized for construction, of

waters arising in States lying wholly or partly west of the

ninety-eighth meridian shall be only such use as does not conflict

with any beneficial consumptive use, present or future, in States

lying wholly or partly west of the ninety-eighth meridian, of such

waters for domestic, municipal, stock water, irrigation, mining, or

industrial purposes.

(c) The Secretary of the Interior, in making investigations of

and reports on works for irrigation and purposes incidental thereto

shall, in relation to an affected State or States (as defined in

paragraph (a) of this section), and to the Secretary of the Army,

be subject to the same provisions regarding investigations, plans,

proposals, and reports as prescribed in paragraph (a) of this

section for the Chief of Engineers and the Secretary of the Army.

In the event a submission of views and recommendations, made by an

affected State or by the Secretary of the Army pursuant to said

provisions, sets forth objections to the plans or proposals covered

by the report of the Secretary of the Interior, the proposed works

shall not be deemed authorized except upon approval by an Act of

Congress; and section 485h(a) of title 43 and section 590z-1(a) of

title 16 are amended accordingly.

-STATUTE-

It is recognized that destructive floods upon the rivers of the

United States, upsetting orderly processes and causing loss of life

and property, including the erosion of lands, and impairing and

obstructing navigation, highways, railroads, and other channels of

commerce between the States, constitute a menace to national

welfare; that it is the sense of Congress that flood control on

navigable waters or their tributaries is a proper activity of the

Federal Government in cooperation with States, their political

subdivisions, and localities thereof; that investigations and

improvements of rivers and other waterways, including watersheds

thereof, for flood-control purposes are in the interest of the

general welfare; that the Federal Government should improve or

participate in the improvement of navigable waters or their

tributaries, including watersheds thereof, for flood-control

purposes if the benefits to whomsoever they may accrue are in

excess of the estimated costs, and if the lives and social security

of people are otherwise adversely affected.

restoration of any flood control work threatened or destroyed by

flood, including the strengthening, raising, extending, or other

modification thereof as may be necessary in the discretion of the

Chief of Engineers for the adequate functioning of the work for

flood control, or in implementation of nonstructural alternatives

to the repair or restoration of such flood control work if

requested by the non-Federal sponsor; in the emergency protection

of federally authorized hurricane or shore protection being

threatened when in the discretion of the Chief of Engineers such

protection is warranted to protect against imminent and substantial

loss to life and property; in the repair and restoration of any

federally authorized hurricane or shore protective structure

damaged or destroyed by wind, wave, or water action of other than

an ordinary nature when in the discretion of the Chief of Engineers

such repair and restoration is warranted for the adequate

functioning of the structure for hurricane or shore protection. The

emergency fund may also be expended for emergency dredging for

restoration of authorized project depths for Federal navigable

channels and waterways made necessary by flood, drought,

earthquake, or other natural disasters. In any case in which the

Chief of Engineers is otherwise performing work under this section

in an area for which the Governor of the affected State has

requested a determination that an emergency exists or a declaration

that a major disaster exists under the Disaster Relief and

Emergency Assistance Act [42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq.], the Chief of

Engineers is further authorized to perform on public and private

lands and waters for a period of ten days following the Governor's

request any emergency work made necessary by such emergency or

disaster which is essential for the preservation of life and

property, including, but not limited to, channel clearance,

emergency shore protection, clearance and removal of debris and

wreckage endangering public health and safety, and temporary

restoration of essential public facilities and services. The Chief

of Engineers, in the exercise of his discretion, is further

authorized to provide emergency supplies of clean water, on such

terms as he determines to be advisable, to any locality which he

agreement with such farmer, rancher, or political subdivision for

the construction of such well.

(2) The Secretary, upon a written request for assistance under

this paragraph made by any farmer, rancher, or political

subdivision within a distressed area, and after a determination by

the Secretary that as a result of the drought such farmer, rancher,

or political subdivision has an inadequate supply of water and

water cannot be obtained by such farmer, rancher, or political

subdivision, the Secretary may transport water to such farmer,

rancher, or political subdivision by methods which include, but are

not limited to, small-diameter emergency water lines and tank

trucks, until such time as the Secretary determines that an

adequate supply of water is available to such farmer, rancher, or

political subdivision.

(3)(A) Any agreement entered into by the Secretary pursuant to

paragraph (1) of this subsection shall require the farmer, rancher,

or political subdivision for whom the well is constructed to pay to

the United States the reasonable cost of such construction, with

interest, over such number of years, not to exceed thirty, as the

Secretary deems appropriate. The rate of interest shall be that

rate which the Secretary determines would apply if the amount to be

repaid was a loan made pursuant to section 636(b)(2) of title 15.

(B) The Secretary shall not construct any well pursuant to this

subsection unless the farmer, rancher, or political subdivision for

whom the well is being constructed has obtained, prior to

construction, all necessary State and local permits.

CHAPTER 15 - FLOOD CONTROL

-HEAD-

Sec. 701r-1. Utilization of public roads

-STATUTE-

(a) Definitions

When used in this section -

(1) The term "Agency" means the Corps of Engineers, United

States Army or the Bureau of Reclamation, United States

Department of the Interior, whichever has jurisdiction over the

project concerned.

(2) The term "head of the Agency concerned" means the Chief of

Engineers or the Commissioner, Bureau of Reclamation, or their

respective designees.

(3) The term "water resources projects to be constructed in the

future" includes all projects not yet actually under

construction, and, to the extent of work remaining to be

completed, includes projects presently under construction where

road relocations or identifiable components thereof are not

complete as of the date of this section.

(4) The term "time of the taking" is the date of the relocation

agreement, the date of the filing of a condemnation proceeding,

or a date agreed upon between the parties as the date of taking.

(b) Improvement, reconstruction, and maintenance

Whenever, in connection with the construction of any authorized

flood control, navigation, irrigation, or multiple purpose project

for the development of water resources, the head of the Agency

concerned determines it to be in the public interest to utilize

existing public roads as a means of providing access to such

projects during construction, such Agency may improve, reconstruct,

and maintain such roads and may contract with the local authority

having jurisdiction over the roads to accomplish the necessary

work. The accomplishment of such work of improvement may be carried

out with or without obtaining any interest in the land on which the

road is located in accordance with mutual agreement between the

parties: Provided, (1) That the head of the Agency concerned

determines that such work would result in a saving in Federal cost

as opposed to the cost of providing a new access road at Federal

expense, (2) that, at the completion of construction, the head of

the Agency concerned will, if necessary, restore the road to at

least as good condition as prior to the beginning of utilization

for access during construction, and (3) that, at the completion of

construction, the responsibility of the Agency for improvement,

reconstruction, and maintenance shall cease.

(c) Replacement roads; construction to higher standards

For water resources projects to be constructed in the future,

when the taking by the Federal Government of an existing public

road necessitates replacement, the substitute provided will, as

nearly as practicable, serve in the same manner and reasonably as

well as the existing road. The head of the agency concerned is

authorized to construct such substitute roads to the design

standards which the State or owning political division would use in

constructing a new road under similar conditions of geography and

under similar traffic loads (present and projected). In any case

where a State or political subdivision thereof requests that such a

substitute road be constructed to a higher standard than that

provided for in the preceding provisions of this subsection, and

pays, prior to commencement of such construction, the additional

costs involved due to such higher standard, such agency head is

authorized to construct such road to such higher standard. Federal

costs under the provisions of this subsection shall be part of the

nonreimbursable project costs.

located, for roads of the same classification as the road being

replaced. The traffic existing at the time of the taking shall be

used in the determination of the classification."

subsec. (b) redesignated (c).

Subsec. (c). Pub. L. 87-874 redesignated former subsec. (b) as

(c), substituted construction authority to head of the agency

concerned for authority to Chief of Engineers, provided that where

State standards do not exist, those of the owning political

division in which the road is located shall be used, that where a

State or political subdivision requests a substitute road to be

constructed to a higher standard than provided in this subsection,

and pays the additional costs, the Agency head is authorized to so

construct the road, and that the Federal costs under this

subsection shall be part of the nonreimbursable costs.

Sec. 702a. Adoption of 1927 project; execution; creation of board;

scope of authority; appropriation

-STATUTE-

The project for the flood control of the Mississippi River in its

alluvial valley and for its improvement from the Head of Passes to

Cape Girardeau, Missouri, in accordance with the engineering plan

set forth and recommended in the report submitted by the Chief of

Engineers to the Secretary of the Army dated December 1, 1927, and

printed in House Document Numbered 90, Seventieth Congress, first

session, is adopted and authorized to be prosecuted under the

direction of the Secretary of the Army and the supervision of the

Chief of Engineers: Provided, That a board to consist of the Chief

of Engineers, the president of the Mississippi River Commission,

and a civil engineer chosen from civil life to be appointed by the

President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, whose

compensation shall be fixed by the President and be paid out of the

appropriations made to carry on this project, is created; and such

board is authorized and directed to consider the engineering

differences between the adopted project and the plans recommended

by the Mississippi River Commission in its special report dated

November 28, 1927, and after such study and such further surveys as

may be necessary, to recommend to the President such action as it

may deem necessary to be taken in respect to such engineering

differences and the decision of the President upon all

recommendations or questions submitted to him by such board shall

be followed in carrying out the project herein adopted. The board

shall not have any power or authority in respect to such project

except as hereinbefore provided. Such project and the changes

therein, if any, shall be executed in accordance with the

provisions of section 702h of this title. Such surveys shall be

made between Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Cape Girardeau, Missouri,

as the board may deem necessary to enable it to ascertain and

determine the best method of securing flood relief in addition to

levees, before any flood-control works other than levees and

revetments are undertaken on that portion of the river: Provided,

That all diversion works and outlets constructed under the

provisions of sections 702a, 702b to 702d, 702e to 702g, 702h,

702i, 702j, 702k, 702l, 702m and 704 of this title shall be built

in a manner and of a character which will fully and amply protect

the adjacent lands: Provided further, That pending completion of

any floodway, spillway, or diversion channel, the areas within the

same shall be given the same degree of protection as is afforded by

levees on the west side of the river contiguous to the levee at the

head of said floodway, but nothing herein shall prevent, postpone,

delay, or in anywise interfere with the execution of that part of

the project on the east side of the river, including raising,

strengthening, and enlarging the levees on the east side of the

river. The sum of $325,000,000 is authorized to be appropriated for

this purpose.

All unexpended balances of appropriations prior to May 15, 1928,

made for prosecuting work of flood control on the Mississippi River

in accordance with the provisions of section 702 of this title, are

made available for expenditure under the provisions of sections

702a, 702b to 702d, 702e to 702g, 702h, 702i, 702j, 702k, 702l, and

interests as provided in section 702d of this title, and may lease

such lands: Provided, That 25 per centum of all moneys received and

deposited in the Treasury of the United States during any fiscal

year on account of such leases shall be paid, at the end of such

year, by the Secretary of the Treasury to the State in which such

property is situated, to be expended as the State legislature may

prescribe for the benefit of the public schools and public roads of

the county or counties in which such property is situated: Provided

further, That when such property is situated in more than one State

or county the distributive share to each from the proceeds of such

property shall be proportional to its area therein: Provided

further, That no part of the appropriations herein or heretofore

authorized for said Morganza and Eudora floodways and extension

shall be used for any other purpose.

Sec. 702b. Local contribution toward cost of flood control work

-STATUTE-

It is declared to be the sense of Congress that the principle of

local contribution toward the cost of flood control work, which has

been incorporated in all previous national legislation on the

subject, is sound, as recognizing the special interest of the local

population in its own protection, and as a means of preventing

inordinate requests for unjustified items of work having no

material national interest. As a full compliance with this

principle in view of the great expenditure estimated at

approximately $292,000,000, prior to May 15, 1928, made by the

local interests in the alluvial valley of the Mississippi River for

protection against the floods of that river; in view of the extent

of national concern in the control of these floods in the interests

of national prosperity, the flow of interstate commerce, and the

movement of the United States mails; and, in view of the gigantic

scale of the project, involving flood waters of a volume and

flowing from a drainage area largely outside the States most

affected, and far exceeding those of any other river in the United

States, no local contribution to the project herein adopted is

required.

proceedings; floodage rights

-STATUTE-

Except when authorized by the Secretary of the Army upon the

recommendation of the Chief of Engineers, no money appropriated

under authority of sections 702a and 702g of this title shall be

expended on the construction of any item of the project until the

States or levee districts have given assurances satisfactory to the

Secretary of the Army that they will (a) maintain all flood-control

works after their completion, except controlling and regulating

spillway structures, including special relief levees; maintenance

includes normally such matters as cutting grass, removal of weeds,

local drainage, and minor repairs of main river levees; (b) agree

to accept land turned over to them under the provisions of section

702d of this title; (c) provide without cost to the United States,

all rights-of-way for levee foundations and levees on the main stem

of the Mississippi River between Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and the

Head of Passes.

No liability of any kind shall attach to or rest upon the United

States for any damage from or by floods or flood waters at any

place: Provided, however, That if in carrying out the purposes of

sections 702a, 702b to 702d, 702e to 702g, 702h, 702i, 702j, 702k,

702l, 702m, and 704 of this title it shall be found that upon any

stretch of the banks of the Mississippi River it is impracticable

to construct levees, either because such construction is not

economically justified or because such construction would

unreasonably restrict the flood channel, and lands in such stretch

of the river are subjected to overflow and damage which are not now

overflowed or damaged by reason of the construction of levees on

the opposite banks of the river it shall be the duty of the

Secretary of the Army and the Chief of Engineers to institute

proceedings on behalf of the United States Government to acquire

either the absolute ownership of the lands so subjected to overflow

and damage or floodage rights over such lands.

Sec. 702d. Flowage rights; condemnation proceedings; benefits to

property

-STATUTE-

The United States shall provide flowage rights for additional

destructive flood waters that will pass by reason of diversions

from the main channel of the Mississippi River: Provided, That in

all cases where the execution of the flood control plan herein

adopted results in benefits to property such benefits shall be

taken into consideration by way of reducing the amount of

compensation to be paid.

The Secretary of the Army may cause proceedings to be instituted

for the acquirement by condemnation of any lands, easements, or

rights of way which, in the opinion of the Secretary of the Army

and the Chief of Engineers, are needed in carrying out this

project, the said proceedings to be instituted in the United States

district court for the district in which the land, easement, or

right of way is located. In all such proceedings the practice,

pleadings, forms, and modes of proceedings shall conform as near as

may be to the practice, pleadings, forms, and proceedings existing

at the time in like causes in the courts of record of the State

within which such district court is held, any rule of the court to

the contrary notwithstanding. When the owner of any land, easement,

or right of way shall fix a price for the same which, in the

opinion of the Secretary of the Army is reasonable, he may purchase

the same at such price; and the Secretary of the Army is also

authorized to accept donations of lands, easements, and rights of

way required for this project. The provisions of sections 594 and

595 of this title are made applicable to the acquisition of lands,

easements, or rights of way needed for works of flood control:

It is the sense of Congress that the surveys of the Mississippi

River and its tributaries, authorized pursuant to the Act of

January 21, 1927 [ch. 47, 44 Stat. 1010], and House Document

Numbered 308, Sixty-ninth Congress, first session, be prosecuted as

speedily as practicable, and the Secretary of the Army, through the

Corps of Engineers, United States Army, is directed to prepare and

submit to Congress at the earliest practicable date projects for

flood control on all tributary streams of the Mississippi River

system subject to destructive floods which projects shall include:

The Red River and tributaries, the Yazoo River and tributaries, the

White River and tributaries, the Saint Francis River and

tributaries, the Arkansas River and tributaries, the Ohio River and

tributaries, the Missouri River and tributaries, and the Illinois

River and tributaries; and the reports thereon, in addition to the

surveys provided by said House Document 308, Sixty-ninth Congress,

first session, shall include the effect on the subject of further

flood control of the lower Mississippi River to be attained through

the control of the flood waters in the drainage basins of the

tributaries by the establishment of a reservoir system; the

benefits that will accrue to navigation and agriculture from the

prevention of erosion and siltage entering the stream; a

determination of the capacity of the soils of the district to

receive and hold waters from such reservoirs; the prospective

income from the disposal of reservoired waters; the extent to which

reservoired waters may be made available for public and private

uses; and inquiry as to the return flow of waters placed in the

soils from reservoirs, and as to their stabilizing effect on stream

flow as a means of preventing erosion, siltage, and improving

navigation: Provided, That before transmitting such reports to

Congress the same shall be presented to the Mississippi River

Commission, and its conclusions and recommendations thereon shall

be transmitted to Congress by the Secretary of the Army with his

report.

The sum of $5,000,000 is authorized to be used out of the

appropriation authorized in section 702a of this title, in addition
