SUBCHAPTER I - PROGRAMS DOWNSTREAM FROM IMPERIAL DAM

-HEAD-

Sec. 1571. Water quality improvement

-STATUTE-

(a) Authority to proceed with program

The Secretary of the Interior, hereinafter referred to as the

"Secretary", is authorized and directed to proceed with a program

of works of improvement for the enhancement and protection of the

quality of water available in the Colorado River for use in the

United States and the Republic of Mexico, and to enable the United

States to comply with its obligations under the agreement with

Mexico of August 30, 1973 (Minute No. 242 of the International

Boundary and Water Commission, United States and Mexico), concluded

pursuant to the Treaty of February 3, 1944 (TS 994), in accordance

with the provisions of this chapter.

(b) Desalting complexes and plants

(1) The Secretary is authorized to construct, operate, and

maintain a desalting complex, including (1) a desalting plant to

reduce the salinity of drain water from the Wellton-Mohawk division

of the Gila project, Arizona (hereinafter referred to as the

division), including a pretreatment plant for settling, softening,

and filtration of the drain water to be desalted; (2) the necessary

appurtenant works including the intake pumping plant system,

product waterline, power transmission facilities, and permanent

operating facilities; (3) the necessary extension in the United

States and Mexico of the existing bypass drain to carry the reject

stream from the desalting plant and other drainage waters to the

Santa Clara Slough in Mexico, with the part in Mexico, subject to

arrangements made pursuant to subsection (d) of this section; (4)

replacement of the metal flume in the existing main outlet drain

extension with a concrete siphon; (5) reduction of the quantity of

irrigation return flows through acquisition of lands to reduce the

size of the division, and irrigation efficiency improvements to

minimize return flows; (6) acquire on behalf of the United States

such lands or interest in lands in the Painted Rock Reservoir as

may be necessary to operate the project in accordance with the

obligations of Minute No. 242, and (7) all associated facilities

including roads, railroad spur, and transmission lines.

(2)(A) The desalting plant shall be designed to treat

approximately one hundred and twenty-nine million gallons a day of

drain water using advanced technology commercially available. The

plant shall effect recovery initially of not less than 70 per

centum of the drain water as product water, and shall effect

reduction of not less than 90 per centum of the dissolved solids in

the feed water. The Secretary shall use sources of electric power

supply for the desalting complex that will not diminish the supply

of power to preference customers from Federal power systems

operated by the Secretary.

(B) The Secretary is authorized to use electrical power and

energy available from the Navajo Generating Station which is in

excess of the Central Arizona Project pumping requirements for the

purpose of supplying power and energy requirements of the desalting

plant and protective pumping well field constructed pursuant to

this subchapter: Provided, That revenues credited to the Lower

Colorado River Basin Development Fund shall not be diminished below

those amounts which would have accrued had the power been marketed

at the rate determined by the Secretary of Energy for the sale of

power from the Navajo Generating Station to utilities and public

entities, as a result of the use of power and energy for the

desalting, protective pumping works, and other uses authorized by

law, and that power and energy from the Navajo Generating Station

shall be used first to meet the pumping requirements of the Central

Arizona Project and after those needs have been met, for the

desalting and protective pumping facilities constructed pursuant to

this subchapter, and finally for other uses: Provided further, That

prior to obtaining power from the Navajo Generating Station under

the authority of this subsection, the Secretary shall complete an

analysis of alternative sources of supply, including but not

limited to the possibility of developing an agreement with the

Republic of Mexico whereby the United States (or a non-Federal

entity) would enter into contractual arrangements with Mexico for a

sufficient supply of power to operate the desalting plant, the

regulatory pumping fields and appurtenant facilities.

(C) Effective October 1, 1979, and to such extent and in such

amounts as are provided in advance in appropriation Acts, the

Secretary of the Interior is authorized to purchase supplemental

power and energy as required for the purposes of supplying the

power and energy requirements of the desalting plant and protective

pumping well field.

(c) Replacement water studies

Replacement of the reject stream from the desalting plant,

Colorado River waters used for the mitigation of fish and wildlife

habitat losses and of any Wellton-Mohawk drainage water bypassed to

the Santa Clara Slough to accomplish essential operation except at

such times when there exists surplus water of the Colorado River

under the terms of the Mexican Water Treaty of 1944, is recognized

as a national obligation as provided in section 1512 of this title.

Studies to identify feasible measures to provide adequate

replacement water shall be completed not later than June 30, 1980.

Said studies shall be limited to potential sources within the

States of Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, and those

portions of Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming which are within the natural

drainage basin of the Colorado River. Measures found necessary to

replace the reject stream from the desalting plant, Colorado River

waters used for the mitigation of fish and wildlife habitat losses

and any Wellton-Mohawk drainage bypassed to the Santa Clara Slough

to accomplish essential operations may be undertaken independently

of the national obligation set forth in section 1512 of this title.

(d) Advancement of funds for that portion of bypass drain within

Mexico

The Secretary is hereby authorized to advance funds to the United

States section, International Boundary and Water Commission (IBWC),

for construction, operation, and maintenance by Mexico pursuant to

Minute No. 242 of that portion of the bypass drain within Mexico.

Such funds shall be transferred to an appropriate Mexican agency,

under arrangements to be concluded by the IBWC providing for the

construction, operation, and maintenance of such facility by

Mexico.

(e) Desalted water exchange

Any desalted water not needed for the purposes of this subchapter

may be exchanged at prices and under terms and conditions

satisfactory to the Secretary and the proceeds therefrom shall be

deposited in the General Fund of the Treasury. The city of Yuma,

Arizona, shall have first right of refusal to any such water.

(f) Return flow reduction

For the purpose of reducing the return flows from the division to

one hundred and seventy-five thousand acre-feet or less, annually,

the Secretary is authorized to:

(1) Accelerate the cooperative program of Irrigation Management

Services with the Wellton-Mohawk Irrigation and Drainage

District, hereinafter referred to as the district, for the

purpose of improving irrigation efficiency. The district shall

bear its share of the cost of such program as determined by the

Secretary.

(2) Acquire by purchase or through eminent domain or exchange,

to the extent determined by him to be appropriate, lands or

interests in lands to reduce the existing seventy-five thousand

developed and undeveloped irrigable acres authorized by the Act

of July 30, 1947 (61 Stat. 628), known as the Gila

Reauthorization Act [43 U.S.C. 613 et seq.]. The initial

reduction in irrigable acreage shall be limited to approximately

ten thousand acres. If the Secretary determines that the

irrigable acreage of the division must be reduced below

sixty-five thousand acres of irrigable lands to carry out the

purpose of this section, the Secretary is authorized, with the

consent of the district, to acquire additional lands, as may be

deemed by him to be appropriate.

(g) Disposal of acquired lands

The Secretary is authorized to dispose of the acquired lands and

interests therein on terms and conditions satisfactory to him and

meeting the objective of this chapter.

(h) Assistance to water users for installation of system

improvements

The Secretary is authorized, either in conjunction with or in

lieu of land acquisition, to assist water users in the division in

installing system improvements, such as ditch lining, change of

field layouts, automatic equipment, sprinkler systems and bubbler

systems, as a means of increasing irrigation efficiencies:

Provided, however, That all costs associated with the improvements

authorized herein and allocated to the water users on the basis of

benefits received, as determined by the Secretary, shall be

reimbursed to the United States in amounts and on terms and

conditions satisfactory to the Secretary.

(i) Contract amendment

The Secretary is authorized to amend the contract between the

United States and the district dated March 4, 1952, as amended, to

provide that -

(1) the portion of the existing repayment obligation owing to

the United States allocable to irrigable acreage eliminated from

the division for the purposes of this subchapter, as determined

by the Secretary, shall be nonreimbursable; and

(2) if deemed appropriate by the Secretary, the district shall

be given credit against its outstanding repayment obligation to

offset any increase in operation and maintenance assessments per

acre which may result from the district's decreased operation and

maintenance base, all as determined by the Secretary.

(j) Acquisition of land for storage

The Secretary is authorized to acquire through the Corps of

Engineers fee title to, or other necessary interests in, additional

lands above the Painted Rock Dam in Arizona that are required for

the temporary storage capacity needed to permit operation of the

dam and reservoir in times of serious flooding in accordance with

the obligations of the United States under Minute No. 242. No funds

shall be expended for acquisition of land or interests therein

until it is finally determined by a Federal court of competent

jurisdiction that the Corps of Engineers presently lacks legal

authority to use said lands for this purpose. Nothing contained in

this subchapter nor any action taken pursuant to it shall be deemed

to be a recognition or admission of any obligation to the owners of

such land on the part of the United States or a limitation or

deficiency in the rights or powers of the United States with

respect to such lands or the operation of the reservoir.

(k) Transfer of funds

To the extent desirable to carry out subsections (f)(1) and (h)

of this section, the Secretary may transfer funds to the Secretary

of Agriculture as may be required for technical assistance to

farmers, conduct of research and demonstrations, and such related

investigations as are required to achieve higher on-farm irrigation

efficiencies.

(l) Nonreimbursable costs

feasibility report and final environmental statement dated February

10, 1984. Prior to initiation of construction of stage I of the

Lower Gunnison Basin unit, or of a portion of stage I, the

Secretary shall enter into contracts through which the non-Federal

entities owning, operating, and maintaining the water distribution

systems, or portions thereof, in the Uncompahgre Valley, singly or

in concert, will assume the obligations specified in subsection

(b)(2) of this section relating to the continued operation and

maintenance of the unit's facilities.

(5) Portions of the McElmo Creek unit, Colorado, as components of

the Dolores participating project, Colorado River Storage project,

authorized by Public Law 90-537 [43 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.] and Public

Law 84-485 [43 U.S.C. 620 et seq.], consisting of all measures and

all necessary appurtenant and associated works to reduce seepage

only from the Towaoc-Highline combined canal, Rocky Ford laterals,

Lone Pine lateral, and Upper Hermana lateral, and consisting of

measures to replace incidental fish and wildlife values foregone.

The Dolores participating project shall have salinity control as a

project purpose insofar as these specific facilities are concerned:

Provided, That the costs of construction and replacement of these

specific facilities shall be allocated by the Secretary to salinity

control and irrigation only after consultation with the State of

Colorado, the Montezuma Valley Irrigation District, Colorado, and

the Dolores Water Conservancy District, Colorado: And provided

further, That such allocation of costs to salinity control will

include only the separable and specific costs of these specific

facilities and will not include any joint costs of any other

facilities of the Dolores participating project. Repayment of costs

allocated to salinity control shall be subject to this chapter.

Repayment of costs allocated to irrigation shall be subject to the

Acts which authorized the Dolores participating project, the

Reclamation Act of 1902, and Acts amendatory and supplementary

thereto. Prior to initiation of construction of these specific

facilities, or a portion thereof, the Secretary shall enter into

contracts through which the non-Federal entities owning, operating,

and maintaining the water distribution systems, or portions

thereof, in the Montezuma Valley, singly or in concert, will assume

the obligations specified in subsection (b)(2) of this section

relating to the continued operation and maintenance of the unit's

facilities.

(6) A basinwide salinity control program that the Secretary,

acting through the Bureau of Reclamation, shall implement. The

Secretary may carry out the purposes of this paragraph directly, or

may make grants, commitments for grants, or advances of funds to

non-Federal entities under such terms and conditions as the

Secretary may require. Such program shall consist of cost-effective

measures and associated works to reduce salinity from saline

springs, leaking wells, irrigation sources, industrial sources,

erosion of public and private land, or other sources that the

Secretary considers appropriate. Such program shall provide for the

mitigation of incidental fish and wildlife values that are lost as

a result of the measures and associated works. The Secretary shall

submit a planning report concerning the program established under

this paragraph to the appropriate committees of Congress. The

Secretary may not expend funds for any implementation measure under

the program established under this paragraph before the expiration

of a 30-day period beginning on the date on which the Secretary

submits such report.

(b) Implementation of authorized units

In implementing the units authorized to be constructed pursuant

to subsection (a) of this section, the Secretary shall carry out

the following directions:

(1) As reports are completed describing final implementation

plans for the unit, or any portion thereof, authorized by

paragraph (5) of subsection (a) of this section, and prior to

expenditure of funds for related construction activities, the

Secretary shall submit such reports to the appropriate committees

of the Congress and to the governors of the Colorado River Basin

States.

(2) Non-Federal entities shall be required by the Secretary to

contract for the long-term operation and maintenance of canal and

lateral systems constructed pursuant to activities provided for

in subsection (a) of this section: Provided, That the Secretary

shall reimburse such non-Federal entities for the costs of such

operation and maintenance to the extent the costs exceed the

expenses that would have been incurred by them in the thorough

and timely operation and maintenance of their canal and lateral

systems absent the construction of a unit, said expenses to be

determined by the Secretary after consultation with the involved

non-Federal entities. The operation and maintenance for which

non-Federal entities shall be responsible shall include such

repairing and replacing of a unit's facilities as are associated

with normal annual maintenance activities in order to keep such

facilities in a condition which will assure maximum reduction of

salinity inflow to the Colorado River. These non-Federal entities

shall not be responsible, nor incur any costs, for the

replacement of a unit's facilities, including measures to replace

incidental fish and wildlife values foregone. The term

replacement shall be defined for the purposes of this subchapter

as a major modification or reconstruction of a completed unit, or

portion thereof, which is necessitated, through no fault of the

non-Federal entity or entities operating and maintaining a unit,

by design or construction inadequacies or by normal limits on the

useful life of a facility. The Secretary is authorized to provide

continuing technical assistance to non-Federal entities to assure

the effective and efficient operation and maintenance of a unit's

facilities.

this title, as follows:

(1) In recognition of Federal responsibility for the Colorado

River as an interstate stream and for international comity with

Mexico, Federal ownership of the lands of the Colorado River Basin

from which most of the dissolved salts originate, and the policy

embodied in the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of

1972 (86 Stat. 816) [33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.], 75 per centum of the

total costs of construction, operation, maintenance, and

including 70 per centum of the total costs of the associated

measures to replace incidental fish and wildlife values foregone,

shall be nonreimbursable. The total costs remaining after these

allocations shall be reimbursable as provided for in paragraphs

(2), (3), (4), and (5),(!1) of subsection (a) of this section (!2)

(2) The reimbursable portion of the total costs shall be

allocated between the Upper Colorado River Basin Fund established

by section 5(a) of the Colorado River Storage Project Act (70 Stat.

107) [43 U.S.C. 620d(a)] and the Lower Colorado River Basin

Development Fund established by section 1543(a) of this title,

after consultation with the Advisory Council created in section

1594(a) of this title and consideration of the following items:

(i) benefits to be derived in each basin from the use of water

of improved quality and the use of works for improved water

management;

(ii) causes of salinity; and

(iii) availability of revenues in the Lower Colorado River

Basin Development Fund and increased revenues to the Upper

Colorado River Basin Fund made available under section 620d(d)(5)

of this title: Provided, That costs allocated to the Upper

Colorado River Basin Fund under this paragraph (2) shall not

exceed 15 per centum of the costs allocated to the Upper Colorado

River Basin Fund and the Lower Colorado River Basin Development

Fund.

(3) Costs of construction and replacement of each unit or

separable feature thereof authorized by sections (!3) 1592(a)(1),

(2), and (3) of this title and costs of construction of measures to

basin and to the lower basin under subsection (a)(2) of this

section shall be repaid within a fifty-year period or within a

period equal to the estimated life of the unit, separable feature

thereof, or replacement, whichever is less, without interest from

the date such unit, separable feature, or replacement is determined

by the Secretary to be in operation.

(4)(i) Costs of construction and replacement of each unit or

separable feature thereof authorized by paragraphs (4) through (6)

of section 1592 (!4) of this title, costs of construction of

measures to replace incidental fish and wildlife values foregone,

such unit, separable feature thereof, replacement, or on-farm

measure is determined by the Secretary or the Secretary of

Agriculture to be in operation.

(iii) Costs allocated to the lower basin shall be repaid without

interest as such costs are incurred to the extent that money is

available from the Lower Colorado River Basin development fund to

repay costs allocated to the lower basin. If in any fiscal year the

money available from the Lower Colorado River Basin development

fund for such repayment is insufficient to repay the costs

allocated to the lower basin, as provided in the preceding

sentence, the deficiency shall be repaid with interest as soon as

money becomes available in the fund for repayment of those costs.

(iv) The interest rates used pursuant to this chapter shall be

determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, taking into

consideration 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

October 30, 1984, for costs outstanding at that date, or, in the

case of costs incurred subsequent to October 30, 1984, during the

month preceding the fiscal year in which the costs are incurred.
