4594, provided that:

"SEC. 3001. SHORT TITLE.

"This title may be cited as the 'Western Water Policy Review Act

of 1992'.

"SEC. 3002. CONGRESSIONAL FINDINGS.

"The Congress finds that -

"(1) the Nation needs an adequate water supply for all states

[States] at a reasonable cost;

"(2) the demands on the Nation's finite water supply are

increasing;

"(3) coordination on both the Federal level and the local level

is needed to achieve water policy objectives;

"(4) not less than fourteen agencies of the Federal Government

are currently charged with functions relating to the oversight of

water policy;

"(5) the diverse authority over Federal water policy has

resulted in unclear goals and an inefficient handling of the

Nation's water policy;

"(6) the conflict between competing goals and objectives by

Federal, State, and local agencies as well as by private water

users is particularly acute in the nineteen Western States which

have arid climates which include the seventeen reclamation

States, Hawaii, and Alaska;

"(7) the appropriations doctrine of water allocation which

characterizes most western water management regimes varies from

State to State, and results in many instances in increased

competition for limited resources;

"(8) the Federal Government has recognized and continues to

recognize the primary jurisdiction of the several States over the

allocation, priority, and use of water resources of the States,

except to the extent such jurisdiction has been preempted in

whole or in part by the Federal Government, including, but not

limited to, express or implied Federal reserved water rights

either for itself or for the benefit of Indian Tribes, and that

the Federal Government will, in exercising its authorities,

comply with applicable State laws;

"(9) the Federal Government recognizes its trust

responsibilities to protect Indian water rights and assist Tribes

in the wise use of those resources;

"(10) Federal agencies, such as the Bureau of Reclamation, have

had, and will continue to have major responsibilities in

assisting States in the wise management and allocation of scarce

water resources; and

"(11) the Secretary of the Interior, given his responsibilities

for management of public land, trust responsibilities for

Indians, administration of the reclamation program,

investigations and reviews into ground water resources through

the Geologic Survey [now United States Geological Survey], and

the Secretary of the Army, given his responsibilities for flood

control, water supply, hydroelectric power, recreation, and fish

and wildlife enhancement, have the resources to assist in a

comprehensive review, in consultation with appropriate officials

from the nineteen Western States, into the problems and potential

solutions facing the nineteen Western States and the Federal

Government in the increasing competition for the scarce water

resources of the Western States.

"SEC. 3003. PRESIDENTIAL REVIEW.

"(a) The President is directed to undertake a comprehensive

review of Federal activities in the nineteen Western States which

directly or indirectly affect the allocation and use of water

resources, whether surface or subsurface, and to submit a report on

the President's findings, together with recommendations, if any, to

the Committees on Energy and Natural Resources, Environment and

Public Works and Appropriations of the Senate and the Committees on

Natural Resources [now Resources], Public Works and Transportation

[now Transportation and Infrastructure], Merchant Marine and

Fisheries and Appropriations of the House of Representatives.

"(b) Such report shall be submitted within three years from the

date of enactment of this Act [Oct. 30, 1992].

"(c) In conducting the review and preparing the report, the

President is directed to consult with the Advisory Commission

established under section 3004 of this title, and may request the

Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of the Army or other

Federal officials or the Commission to undertake such studies or

other analyses as the President determines would assist in the

review.

"(d) The President shall consult periodically with the

Commission, and upon the request of the President, the heads of

other Federal agencies are directed to cooperate with and assist

the Commission in its activities.

"SEC. 3004. THE ADVISORY COMMISSION.

(hereafter in this title referred to as the 'Commission') to assist

in the preparation and review of the report required under this

title.

"(b) The Commission shall be composed of eighteen members as

follows:

"(1) Ten members appointed by the President including:

by the Western Governors Association; and

"(D) at least one representative chosen from a list submitted

by Tribal governments located in the Western States.

"(2) In addition to the ten members appointed by the President,

twelve Members from the United States Congress shall serve as ex

officio members of the Commission. For the United States Senate:

the Chairmen and the Ranking Minority Members of the Committees

on Energy and Natural Resources, and Appropriations, and the

Subcommittee of the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources

which has jurisdiction over the Bureau of Reclamation. For the

United States House of Representatives: the Chairman [Chairmen]

and Ranking Minority Members of the Committees on Natural

Resources [now Resources], Public Works and Transportation [now

Transportation and Infrastructure], and Appropriations.

"(c) The President shall appoint one member of the Commission to

serve as Chairman.

"(d) Any vacancy which may occur on the Commission shall be

necessary expenses incurred by them in the performance of their

duties.

"SEC. 3005. DUTIES OF THE COMMISSION.

"The Commission shall -

"(1) review present and anticipated water resource problems

affecting the nineteen Western States, making such projections of

water supply requirements as may be necessary and identifying

alternative ways of meeting these requirements - giving

considerations, among other things, to conservation and more

efficient use of existing supplies, innovations to encourage the

most beneficial use of water and recent technological advances;

"(2) examine the current and proposed Federal programs

affecting such States and recommend to the President whether they

should be continued or adopted and, if so, how they should be

managed for the next twenty years, including the possible

reorganization or consolidation of the current water resources

development and management agencies;

"(3) review the problems of rural communities relating to water

supply, potable water treatment, and wastewater treatment;

"(4) review the need and opportunities for additional storage

or other arrangements to augment existing water supplies

including, but not limited to, conservation;

"(6) review the legal regime governing the development and use

of water and the respective roles of both the Federal Government

and the States over the allocation and use of water, including an

examination of riparian zones, appropriation and mixed systems,

market transfers, administrative allocations, ground water

management, interbasin transfers, recordation of rights,

Federal-State relations including the various doctrines of

Federal reserved water rights (including Indian water rights and

the development in several States of the concept of a public

trust doctrine); and

"(7) review the activities, authorities, and responsibilities

of the various Federal agencies with direct water resources

management responsibility, including but not limited to the

Bureau of Reclamation, the Department of the Army, and those

agencies whose decisions would impact on water resource

each Western State to designate a representative to work closely

with the Commission and its staff in matters pertaining to this

title.

Provided, That no payment shall be deferred under this section in

any particular case beyond March 1, 1927: Provided, That upon such

adjustment being made, any penalties or interest which may have

accrued in connection with such unpaid construction and operation

and maintenance charges shall be canceled, and in lieu thereof the

amount so due, and the payment of which is hereby extended, shall

draw interest at the rate of 5 per centum per annum, paid annually

from the time said amount became due to date of payment: And

provided further, That in case the principal and interest herein

provided for are not paid in the manner and at the time provided by

Secretary of the Interior is authorized in his discretion prior to

March 1, 1925, to add such accrued and unpaid charges to the

subsequent years, beginning with the year 1925, or, in the

discretion of the Secretary, distribute a total of one-fourth over

the first half of the remaining years of the 20-year period

beginning with the year 1925, and three-fourths over the second

half of such period, so as to complete the payment during the

remaining years of the 20-year period of payment of the original

construction charge: Provided, That upon such adjustment being

made, any penalties or interest which may have accrued in

connection with such unpaid construction and operation and

maintenance charges shall be canceled, and in lieu thereof the

amount so due, and the payment of which is extended, shall draw

interest at the rate of 5 per centum per annum, paid annually from

the time said amount became due to the date of payment: Provided

further, That the applicant for the extension shall first show to

the satisfaction of the Secretary of the Interior detailed

statement of his assets and liabilities and probable inability to

make payment at the time required in subsection (a) of this

section: And provided further, That in case the principal and

interest herein provided for are not paid in the manner and at the

time provided by this section, any penalty provided by law, prior

to May 9, 1924, shall thereupon attach from the date of such

default: And provided further, That similar relief in whole or in

part may be extended by the Secretary of the Interior to a legally

organized group of water users of a project, upon presentation of a

sufficient number of individual showings made in accordance with

the foregoing proviso to satisfy the Secretary of the Interior that

Sec. 390. Utilization of dams and reservoir projects for irrigation

purposes; additional construction; necessity of authorization;

apportionment of cost; limitation

-STATUTE-

On and after December 22, 1944, whenever the Secretary of the

Army determines, upon recommendation by the Secretary of the

Interior that any dam and reservoir project operated under the

direction of the Secretary of the Army may be utilized for

irrigation purposes, the Secretary of the Interior is authorized to

construct, operate, and maintain, under the provisions of the

Federal reclamation laws (Act of June 17, 1902, 32 Stat. 388, and

Acts amendatory thereof or supplementary thereto), such additional

works in connection therewith as he may deem necessary for

irrigation purposes. Such irrigation works may be undertaken only

after a report and findings thereon have been made by the Secretary

of the Interior as provided in said Federal reclamation laws and

after subsequent specific authorization of the Congress by an

authorization Act; and, within the limits of the water users'

repayment ability such report may be predicated on the allocation

to irrigation of an appropriate portion of the cost of structures

and facilities used for irrigation and other purposes. Dams and

reservoirs operated under the direction of the Secretary of the

Army may be utilized after December 22, 1944, for irrigation

purposes only in conformity with the provisions of this section,

but the foregoing requirement shall not prejudice lawful uses now

existing: Provided, That this section shall not apply to any dam or

reservoir heretofore constructed in whole or in part by the Army

engineers, which provides conservation storage of water for

irrigation purposes. In the case of any reservoir project

constructed and operated by the Corps of Engineers, the Secretary

of the Army is authorized to allocate water which was allocated in

the project purpose for municipal and industrial water supply and

which is not under contract for delivery, for such periods as he

may deem reasonable, for the interim use for irrigation purposes of

such storage until such storage is required for municipal and

industrial water supply. No contracts for the interim use of such

storage shall be entered into which would significantly affect

then-existing uses of such storage.

Sec. 390b. Development of water supplies for domestic, municipal,

industrial, and other purposes

-STATUTE-

(a) Declaration of policy

It is declared to be the policy of the Congress to recognize the

primary responsibilities of the States and local interests in

developing water supplies for domestic, municipal, industrial, and

other purposes and that the Federal Government should participate

and cooperate with States and local interests in developing such

water supplies in connection with the construction, maintenance,

and operation of Federal navigation, flood control, irrigation, or

multiple purpose projects.

(b) Storage in reservoir projects; agreements for payment of cost

of construction or modification of projects

In carrying out the policy set forth in this section, it is

provided that storage may be included in any reservoir project

surveyed, planned, constructed or to be planned, surveyed and/or

constructed by the Corps of Engineers or the Bureau of Reclamation

to impound water for present or anticipated future demand or need

for municipal or industrial water, and the reasonable value thereof

may be taken into account in estimating the economic value of the

entire project: Provided, That the cost of any construction or

modification authorized under the provisions of this section shall

be determined on the basis that all authorized purposes served by

the project shall share equitably in the benefits of multiple

purpose construction, as determined by the Secretary of the Army or

the Secretary of the Interior, as the case may be: Provided

further, That before construction or modification of any project

including water supply provisions for present demand is initiated,

State or local interests shall agree to pay for the cost of such

provisions in accordance with the provisions of this section: And

provided further, That (1) for Corps of Engineers projects, not to

exceed 30 percent of the total estimated cost of any project may be

allocated to anticipated future demands, and, (2) for Bureau of

Reclamation projects, not to exceed 30 per centum of the total

estimated cost of any project may be allocated to anticipated

future demands where State or local interests give reasonable

assurances, and there is reasonable evidence, that such demands for

the use of such storage will be made within a period of time which

will permit paying out the costs allocated to water supply within

the life of the project: And provided further, That for Corps of

Engineers projects, the Secretary of the Army may permit the full

non-Federal contribution to be made, without interest, during

construction of the project, or, with interest, over a period of

not more than thirty years from the date of completion, with

repayment contracts providing for recalculation of the interest

rate at, five-year intervals, and for Bureau of Reclamation

projects, the entire amount of the construction costs, including

interest during construction, allocated to water supply shall be

repaid within the life of the project but in no event to exceed

fifty years after the project is first used for the storage of

water for water supply purposes, except that (1) no payment need be

made with respect to storage for future water supply until such

supply is first used, and (2) no interest shall be charged on such

cost until such supply is first used, but in no case shall the

interest-free period exceed ten years. For Corps of Engineers

projects, all annual operation, maintenance, and replacement costs

for municipal and industrial water supply storage under the

provisions of this section shall be reimbursed from State or local

interests on an annual basis. For Corps of Engineers projects, any

repayment by a State or local interest shall be made with interest

at a rate to be determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, taking

into consideration the average market yields on outstanding

marketable obligations of the United States with remaining periods

to maturity comparable to the reimbursement period, during the

month preceding the fiscal year in which costs for the construction

of the project are first incurred (or, when a recalculation is

made), plus a premium of one-eighth of one percentage point for

transaction costs. For Bureau of Reclamation projects, the interest

rate used for purposes of computing interest during construction

and interest on the unpaid balance shall be determined by the

Secretary of the Treasury, as of the beginning of the fiscal year

in which construction is initiated, on the basis of the computed

average interest rate payable by the Treasury upon its outstanding

marketable public obligations, which are neither due nor callable

for redemption for fifteen years from date of issue. The provisions

of this subsection insofar as they relate to the Bureau of

Reclamation and the Secretary of the Interior shall be alternative

to and not a substitute for the provisions of the Reclamation

Projects Act of 1939 (53 Stat. 1187) [43 U.S.C. 485 et seq.]

relating to the same subject.

(c) Application to other laws

The provisions of this section shall not be construed to modify

the provisions of section 701-1 of title 33 and section 390 of this

title, as amended and extended, or the provisions of sections 372

and 383 of this title.

(d) Approval of Congress of modifications of reservoir projects

Modifications of a reservoir project heretofore authorized,

surveyed, planned, or constructed to include storage as provided in

subsection (b) of this section which would seriously affect the

purposes for which the project was authorized, surveyed, planned,

or constructed, or which would involve major structural or

operational changes shall be made only upon the approval of

Congress as now provided by law.

performance of its obligations prescribed in such lease agreement

or agreement executed in reference thereto. Such obligations will

include continued payment of annual operation and maintenance costs

allocated to water supply. In addition, local interests shall bear

the costs allocated to the water supply of any necessary

reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement of project features

which may be required to continue satisfactory operation of the

project. Any affected local interest may utilize such facility so

long as it is operated by the Government. In the event that the

Government concludes that it can no longer usefully and

economically maintain and operate such facility, the responsible

department or agency of the Government is authorized to negotiate a

contract with the affected local interest under which the local

interest may continue to operate such part of the facility as is

necessary for utilization of the storage space allocated to it,

under terms which will protect the public interest and provided

that the Government is effectively absolved from all liability in

Sec. 390ii. Disposition of excess lands

-STATUTE-

(a) Disposal of lands in excess of ownership limitations within

reasonable time

Irrigation water made available in the operation of reclamation

project facilities may not be delivered for use in the irrigation

of lands held in excess of the ownership limitations imposed by

Federal reclamation law, including this subchapter, unless and

until the owners thereof shall have executed a recordable contract

with the Secretary, in accordance with the terms and conditions

required by Federal reclamation law, requiring the disposal of

their interest in such excess lands within a reasonable time to be

established by the Secretary. In the case of recordable contracts

entered into prior to October 12, 1982, such reasonable time shall

not exceed ten years after the recordable contract is executed by

the Secretary. In the case of recordable contracts entered into

after October 12, 1982, except as provided in section 390rr of this

title, such reasonable time shall not exceed five years after the

recordable contract is executed by the Secretary.

(b) Continued delivery of irrigation water to lands held in excess

of ownership limitations

Lands held in excess of the ownership limitations imposed by

Federal reclamation law, including this subchapter, which, on

October 12, 1982, are, or are capable of, receiving delivery of

irrigation water made available by the operation of existing

reclamation project facilities may receive such deliveries only -

(1) if the disposal of the owner's interest in such lands is

required by an existing recordable contract with the Secretary,

or

(2) if the owners of such lands have requested that a

recordable contract be executed by the Secretary.

(c) Amendment of existing recordable contracts

Recordable contracts existing on October 12, 1982, shall be

amended at the request of the landowner to conform with the

ownership limitations contained in this subchapter: Provided, That

the time period for disposal of excess lands specified in the

existing recordable contract shall not be extended except as

provided in subsection (e) of this section.

(d) Power of attorney requirement in contracts; exercise of power

by Secretary

Any recordable contract covering excess lands sales shall provide

that a power of attorney shall vest in the Secretary to sell any

excess lands not disposed of by the owners thereof within the

period of time specified in the recordable contract. In the

exercise of that power, the Secretary shall sell such lands through

an impartial selection process only to qualified purchasers

according to such reasonable rules and regulations as the Secretary

may establish: Provided, That the Secretary shall recover for the

owner the fair market value of the land unrelated to irrigation

water deliveries plus the fair market value of improvements

thereon.

(e) Extension of time for disposal of excess lands

In the event that the owner of any lands in excess of the

ownership limitations of Federal reclamation law has heretofore

entered into a recordable contract with the Secretary for the

disposition of such excess lands and has been prevented from

disposing of them because the Secretary may have withheld the

processing or approval of the disposition of the lands (whether he

may have been compelled to do so by court order or for other

reasons), the period of time for the disposal of such lands by the

owner thereof pursuant to the contract shall be extended from the

date on which the Secretary again commences the processing or the

approval of the disposition of such lands for a period which shall

be equal to the remaining period of time under the recordable

contract for the disposal thereof by the owner at the time the

decision of the Secretary to withhold the processing or approval of

such disposition first became effective.

(f) Eligibility of excess lands for irrigation water after

disposition

Excess lands which have been or may be disposed of in compliance

with Federal reclamation law, including this subchapter, shall not

be considered eligible to receive irrigation water unless -

(1) they are held by nonexcess owners; and

(2) in the case of disposals made after October 12, 1982, their

title is burdened by a covenant prohibiting their sale, for a

period of ten years after their original disposal to comply with

Federal reclamation law, including this subchapter, for values

exceeding the sum of the value of newly added improvements and

the value of the land as increased by market appreciation

unrelated to the delivery of irrigation water. Upon expiration of

the terms of such covenant, the title to such lands shall be

freed of the burden of any limitations on subsequent sale values

which might otherwise be imposed by the operation of section 423e

SUBCHAPTER IV - CONSTRUCTION OF SMALL PROJECTS

-HEAD-

Sec. 422d. Contents of proposals

-STATUTE-

(a) Plans and estimates; review by States; allocation of capital

costs

Any proposal with respect to the construction of a project which

has not theretofore been authorized for construction under the

Federal reclamation laws shall set forth, among other things, a

plan and estimated cost in detail comparable to those included in

preauthorization reports required for a Federal reclamation

project; shall have been submitted for review by the States of the

drainage basin in which the project is located in like manner as

provided in section 701-1(c) of title 33, except that the review

may be limited to the State or States in which the project is

located if the proposal is one solely for rehabilitation and

betterment of an existing project; and shall include a proposed

allocation of capital costs to functions such that costs for

facilities used for a single purpose shall be allocated to that

purpose and costs for facilities used for more than one purpose

shall be so allocated among the purposes served that each purpose

will share equitably in the costs of such joint facilities. The

costs of means and measures to prevent loss of and damage to fish

and wildlife resources shall be considered as project costs and

allocated as may be appropriate among project functions.

(b) Lands and water rights; ownership; financing

(1) Every such proposal shall include a showing that the

organization already holds or can acquire all lands and interests

in land (except public and other lands and interests in land owned

by the United States which are within the administrative

jurisdiction of the Secretary and subject to disposition by him)

and rights, pursuant to applicable State law, to the use of water

necessary for the successful construction, operation, and

maintenance of the project and that it is ready, able, and willing

to finance otherwise than by loan and grant of Federal funds such

portion of the cost of the project (which portion shall include all

costs of acquiring lands, interests in land, and rights to the use

of water), except as provided in section 422e(b)(2) of this title

as the Secretary shall have advised is proper in the circumstances.

(2) The Secretary shall require each organization to contribute

toward the cost of the project (other than by loan and/or grant of

Federal funds) an amount equal to 25 percent or more of the

allowable estimated cost of the project: Provided, That the

Secretary, at his discretion, may reduce the amount of such

contribution to the extent that he determines that the organization

is unable to secure financing from other sources under reasonable

terms and conditions, and shall include letters from lenders or

other written evidence in support of any funding of an applicant's

inability to secure such financing in any project proposal

transmitted to the Congress: Provided further, That under no

circumstances shall the Secretary reduce the amount of such

contribution to less than 10 percent of the allowable estimated

total project costs. In determining the amount of the contribution

as required by this paragraph, the Secretary shall credit toward

that amount the cost of investigations, surveys, engineering, and

other services necessary to the preparation of proposals and plans

for the project as required by the Secretary, and the costs of

lands and rights-of-way required for the project, and the $5,000

fee described in section 422c of this title. In determining the

allowable estimated cost of the project, the Secretary shall not

include the amount of grants accorded to the organization under

section 422e(b) of this title.

(c) Transmittal of findings and approval to Congress; certification

of soil survey; reservation of land

At such time as a project is found by the Secretary and the

Governor of the State in which it is located (or an appropriate

State agency designated by him) to be financially feasible, is

determined by the Secretary to constitute a reasonable risk under

the provisions of this subchapter, and is approved by the

Secretary, such findings and approval shall be transmitted to the

Congress. Each project proposal transmitted by the Secretary to the

Congress shall include a certification by the Secretary that an

adequate soil survey and land classification has been made, or that

the successful irrigability of those lands and their susceptibility

to sustained production of agricultural crops by means of

irrigation has been demonstrated in practice. Such proposal shall

also include an investigation of soil characteristics which might

result in toxic or hazardous irrigation return flows. The

Secretary, at the time of submitting the project proposal to

Congress or at the time of his determination that the requested

project constitutes a reasonable risk under the provisions of this

subchapter, may reserve from use or disposition inimical to the

project any lands and interests in land owned by the United States

which are within his administrative jurisdiction and subject to

disposition by him and which are required for use by the project.

Any such reservation shall expire at the end of two years unless

the contract provided for in section 422e of this title shall have

been executed.

(d) Amount of loan and/or grant; increase by Secretary

At the time of his submitting the project proposal to the

Congress, or at any subsequent time prior to completion of

construction of the project, including projects heretofore

approved, the Secretary may increase the amount of the requested

loan and/or grant to an amount within the maximum allowed by

section 422e(a) of this title, as amended by Pub. L. 94-181, to

compensate for increases in construction costs due to price

escalation.

(e) Appropriation; nonapplicability

No appropriation shall be made for financial participation in any

such project prior to sixty calendar days (which sixty days,

however, shall not include days on which either the House of

Representatives or the Senate is not in session because of an

adjournment of more than three calendar days to a day certain) from

the date on which the Secretary's findings and approval are

submitted to the Congress and then only if, within said sixty days,

neither the Committee on Natural Resources of the House of

Representatives nor the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources

of the Senate disapproves the project proposal by committee

resolution. The provisions of this subsection (e) shall not be

applicable to proposals made under section 422f of this title.

(f) Consideration of financial feasibility, emergency, or urgent

need; jurisdiction and control of project works and facilities

The Secretary shall give due consideration to financial

feasibility, emergency, or urgent need for the project. All project

works and facilities constructed under this subchapter shall remain

under the jurisdiction and control of the local contracting

organization subject to the terms of the repayment contract.
