(a) Establishment, consultation, revision

The Council shall establish, after such consultation with other

interested entities, both Federal and non-Federal, as the Council

may find appropriate, and with the approval of the President,

principles, standards, and procedures for Federal participants in

the preparation of comprehensive regional or river basin plans and

for the formulation and evaluation of Federal water and related

land resources projects. Such procedures may include provision for

Council revision of plans for Federal projects intended to be

proposed in any plan or revision thereof being prepared by a river

basin planning commission.

(b) Economic evaluation; primary criterion

The Council shall develop standards and criteria for economic

evaluation of water resource projects. For the purpose of those

standards and criteria, the primary direct navigation benefits of a

water resource project are defined as the product of the savings to

shippers using the waterway and the estimated traffic that would

use the waterway. "Savings to shippers" means the difference

between (1) the freight rates or charges prevailing at the time of

the study for the movement by the alternative means, and (2) those

which would be charged on the proposed waterway. Estimated traffic

that would use the waterway will be based on those freight rates,

taking into account projections of the economic growth of the area.

reservoir system within certain river basins and conveyance and

purification facilities through cooperation of Secretary of the

Army and government agencies; financial participation of States

Congress hereby recognizes that assuring adequate supplies of

water for the great metropolitan centers of the United States has

become a problem of such magnitude that the welfare and prosperity

of this country require the Federal Government to assist in the

solution of water supply problems. Therefore, the Secretary of the

Army, acting through the Chief of Engineers, is authorized to

cooperate with Federal, State, and local agencies in preparing

plans in accordance with the Water Resources Planning Act [42

U.S.C. 1962 et seq.] to meet the long-range water needs of the

northeastern United States. This plan may provide for the

construction, operation, and maintenance by the United States of

(1) a system of major reservoirs to be located within those river

basins of the northeastern United States which drain into the

Chesapeake Bay, those that drain into the Atlantic Ocean north of

the Chesapeake Bay, those that drain into Lake Ontario, and those

that drain into the Saint Lawrence River, (2) major conveyance

facilities by which water may be exchanged between these river

basins to the extent found desirable in the national interest, and

(3) major purification facilities. Such plans shall provide for

appropriate financial participation by the States, political

subdivisions thereof, and other local interests.

(b) Construction, operation, and maintenance of reservoirs and

conveyance and purification facilities

The Secretary of the Army, acting through the Chief of Engineers,

shall construct, operate, and maintain those reservoirs, conveyance

facilities, and purification facilities, which are recommended in

the plan prepared in accordance with subsection (a) of this

section, and which are specifically authorized by law enacted after

October 27, 1965.

(c) Reservoirs as components of river basin and water supply plans

Each reservoir included in the plan authorized by this section

shall be considered as a component of a comprehensive plan for the

optimum development of the river basin in which it is situated, as

well as a component of the plan established in accordance with this

section.

-HEAD-

Sec. 1962d-5a. Reimbursement to States

-STATUTE-

(a) Combination of reimbursement of installation costs and

reduction in contributions; single project limitation

The Secretary of the Army, acting through the Chief of Engineers,

may, when he determines it to be in the public interest, enter into

agreements providing for reimbursement to States or political

subdivisions thereof for work to be performed by such non-Federal

public bodies at water resources development projects authorized

for construction under the Secretary of the Army and the

supervision of the Chief of Engineers. Such agreements may provide

for reimbursement of installation costs incurred by such entities

or an equivalent reduction in the contributions they would

otherwise be required to make, or in appropriate cases, for a

combination thereof. The amount of Federal reimbursement, including

reductions in contributions, for a single project shall not exceed

$5,000,000 or 1 percent of the total project cost, whichever is

greater; except that the amount of actual Federal reimbursement,

including reductions in contributions, for such project may not

exceed $5,000,000 in any fiscal year.

(b) Agreement provisions; termination of agreement for failure to

commence work

Agreements entered into pursuant to this section shall (1) fully

describe the work to be accomplished by the non-Federal public

body, and be accompanied by an engineering plan if necessary

therefor; (2) specify the manner in which such work shall be

carried out; (3) provide for necessary review of design and plans,

and inspection of the work by the Chief of Engineers or his

designee; (4) state the basis on which the amount of reimbursement

shall be determined; (5) state that such reimbursement shall be

dependent upon the appropriation of funds applicable thereto or

funds available therefor, and shall not take precedence over other

pending projects of higher priority for improvements; and (6)

specify that reimbursement or credit for non-Federal installation

expenditures shall apply only to work undertaken on Federal

projects after project authorization and execution of the

agreement, and does not apply retroactively to past non-Federal

work. Each such agreement shall expire three years after the date

on which it is executed if the work to be undertaken by the

non-Federal public body has not commenced before the expiration of

that period. The time allowed for completion of the work will be

determined by the Secretary of the Army, acting through the Chief

of Engineers, and stated in the agreement.

(c) Certification of performance

No reimbursement shall be made, and no expenditure shall be

credited, pursuant to this section, unless and until the Chief of

Engineers or his designee, has certified that the work for which

reimbursement or credit is requested has been performed in

accordance with the agreement.

(d) Beach erosion control projects

Reimbursement for work commenced by non-Federal public bodies no

later than one year after August 13, 1968, to carry out or assist

in carrying out projects for beach erosion control, may be made in

accordance with the provisions of section 426f of title 33.

Reimbursement for such work may, as an alternative, be made in

accordance with the provisions of this section, provided that

agreement required herein shall have been executed prior to

commencement of the work. Expenditures for projects for beach

erosion control commenced by non-Federal public bodies subsequent

to one year after August 13, 1968, may be reimbursed by the

Secretary of the Army, acting through the Chief of Engineers, only

in accordance with the provisions of this section.

(e) Prohibition of construction for Federal assumption of

responsibilities of non-Federal bodies or for Federal liability

for unnecessary or inapplicable project work of such bodies

This section shall not be construed (1) as authorizing the United

States to assume any responsibilities placed upon a non-Federal

body by the conditions of project authorization, or (2) as

committing the United States to reimburse non-Federal interests if

the Federal project is not undertaken or is modified so as to make

the work performed by the non-Federal Public body no longer

applicable.

(f) Allotment limitation for any fiscal year; specific project

reimbursement authorizations

The Secretary of the Army is authorized to allot from any

appropriations hereafter made for civil works, not to exceed

$10,000,000 for any one fiscal year to carry out the provisions of

this section. This limitation does not include specific project

authorizations providing for reimbursement.

(a) Cooperation of non-Federal interest

After December 31, 1970, the construction of any water resources

project, or an acceptable separable element thereof, by the

Secretary of the Army, acting through the Chief of Engineers, or by

a non-Federal interest where such interest will be reimbursed for

such construction under the provisions of section 1962d-5a of this

title or under any other provision of law, shall not be commenced

until each non-Federal interest has entered into a written

agreement with the Secretary of the Army to furnish its required

cooperation for the project or the appropriate element of the

project, as the case may be; except that no such agreement shall be

required if the Secretary determines that the administrative costs

associated with negotiating, executing, or administering the

agreement would exceed the amount of the contribution required from

the non-Federal interest and are less than $25,000. In any such

agreement entered into by a State, or a body politic of the State

which derives its powers from the State constitution, or a

governmental entity created by the State legislature, the agreement

may reflect that it does not obligate future appropriations for

such performance and payment when obligating future appropriations

would be inconsistent with constitutional or statutory limitations

of the State or a political subdivision of the State.

(b) Definition of non-Federal interest

A non-Federal interest shall be a legally constituted public body

with full authority and capability to perform the terms of its

agreement and to pay damages, if necessary, in the event of failure

to perform.

(c) Enforcement; jurisdiction

Every agreement entered into pursuant to this section shall be

enforcible in the appropriate district court of the United States.

(d) Nonperformance of terms of agreement by non-Federal interest;

notice; reasonable opportunity for performance; performance by

Chief of Engineers

After commencement of construction of a project, the Chief of

Engineers may undertake performance of those items of cooperation

necessary to the functioning of the project for its purposes, if he

has first notified the non-Federal interest of its failure to

perform the terms of its agreement and has given such interest a

reasonable time after such notification to so perform.

(e) Effective date

This section shall not apply to any project the construction of

which was commenced before January 1, 1972, or to the assurances

"(1) The Secretary may require compliance with any requirements

pertaining to cooperation by non-Federal interests in carrying out

any water resources project authorized before, on, or after the

date of enactment of this Act [Nov. 17, 1986].

"(2) Whenever on the basis of any information available to the

Secretary, the Secretary finds that any non-Federal interest is not

providing cooperation required under subsection (a) [amending this

section], the Secretary shall issue an order requiring such

non-Federal interest to provide such cooperation. After notice and

opportunity for a hearing, if the Secretary finds that any person

is violating an order issued under this section [amending this

section], such person shall be subject to a civil penalty not to

exceed $10,000 per day of such violation, except that the total

amount of civil penalties for any violation shall not exceed

$50,000.

"(3) Non-Federal interests shall be liable for interest on any

payments required pursuant to section 221 of the Flood Control Act

to be charged on any such delinquent payment shall be at a rate, to

be determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, equal to 150

percent of the average bond equivalent rate of the thirteen-week

Treasury bills auctioned immediately prior to the date on which

such payment became delinquent, or auctioned immediately prior to

the beginning of each additional three-month period if the period

of delinquency exceeds three months.

"(4) The Secretary may request the Attorney General to bring a

civil action for appropriate relief, including permanent or

temporary injunction, for any violation of an order issued under

this section, to collect a civil penalty imposed under this

section, to recover any cost incurred by the Secretary in

undertaking performance of any item of cooperation under section

221(d) of the Flood Control Act of 1970 [subsec. (d) of this

(a) Congressional findings and declarations

The Congress finds and declares that -

(1) the Great Lakes are a most important natural resource to

the eight Great Lakes States and two Canadian provinces,

providing water supply for domestic and industrial use, clean

energy through hydropower production, an efficient transportation

mode for moving products into and out of the Great Lakes region,

and recreational uses for millions of United States and Canadian

citizens;

(2) the Great Lakes need to be carefully managed and protected

to meet current and future needs within the Great Lakes basin and

Canadian provinces;

(3) any new diversions of Great Lakes water for use outside of

the Great Lakes basin will have significant economic and

environmental impacts, adversely affecting the use of this

resource by the Great Lakes States and Canadian provinces; and

(4) four of the Great Lakes are international waters and are

defined as boundary waters in the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909

between the United States and Canada, and as such any new

diversion of Great Lakes water in the United States would affect

the relations of the Government of the United States with the

Government of Canada.

(b) Congressional declaration of purpose and policy

It is therefore declared to be the purpose and policy of the

Congress in this section -

(1) to take immediate action to protect the limited quantity of

water available from the Great Lakes system for use by the Great

Lakes States and in accordance with the Boundary Waters Treaty of

1909;

(2) to encourage the Great Lakes States, in consultation with

the Provinces of Ontario and Quebec, to develop and implement a

mechanism that provides a common conservation standard embodying

the principles of water conservation and resource improvement for

making decisions concerning the withdrawal and use of water from

the Great Lakes Basin;

(3) to prohibit any diversion of Great Lakes water by any

State, Federal agency, or private entity for use outside the

Great Lakes basin unless such diversion is approved by the

Governor of each of the Great Lakes States; and

(4) to prohibit any Federal agency from undertaking any studies

that would involve the transfer of Great Lakes water for any

purpose for use outside the Great Lakes basin.

(c) "Great Lakes State" defined

As used in this section, the term "Great Lakes State" means each

of the States of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio,

Pennsylvania, New York, and Wisconsin.

(d) Approval by Governors for diversion of water

No water shall be diverted or exported from any portion of the

Great Lakes within the United States, or from any tributary within

the United States of any of the Great Lakes, for use outside the

Great Lakes basin unless such diversion or export is approved by

the Governor of each of the Great Lake (!1) States.

(e) Approval of Governors for diversion studies

No Federal agency may undertake any study, or expend any Federal

funds to contract for any study, of the feasibility of diverting

water from any portion of the Great Lakes within the United States,

or from any tributary within the United States of any of the Great

Lakes, for use outside the Great Lakes basin, unless such study or

expenditure is approved by the Governor of each of the Great Lakes

States. The prohibition of the preceding sentence shall not apply

to any study or data collection effort performed by the Corps of

Engineers or other Federal agency under the direction of the

International Joint Commission in accordance with the Boundary

Waters Treaty of 1909.

(f) Previously authorized diversions

This section shall not apply to any diversion of water from any
