Consent is given to join the United States as a defendant in any

river system or other source, or (2) for the administration of such

rights, where it appears that the United States is the owner of or

is in the process of acquiring water rights by appropriation under

State law, by purchase, by exchange, or otherwise, and the United

States is a necessary party to such suit. The United States, when a

party to any such suit, shall (1) be deemed to have waived any

right to plead that the State laws are inapplicable or that the

United States is not amenable thereto by reason of its sovereignty,

and (2) shall be subject to the judgments, orders, and decrees of

the court having jurisdiction, and may obtain review thereof, in

the same manner and to the same extent as a private individual

under like circumstances: Provided, That no judgment for costs

shall be entered against the United States in any such suit.

(b) Service of summons

Summons or other process in any such suit shall be served upon

the Attorney General or his designated representative.

(c) Joinder in suits involving use of interstate streams by State

Nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing the

Supreme Court of the United States involving the right of States to

the use of the water of any interstate stream.
