    ''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.
      ''(a) The President shall appoint an 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.

        ''(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

    filled in the same manner in which the original appointment was
    made.

      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

      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;

      of the various Federal agencies with direct water resources
      management responsibility, including but not limited to the

    Sec. 384. Extension of time for payment of charges accrued prior to
        March 2, 1924, and January 1, 1925
 
-STATUTE-
      (a) The Secretary of the Interior is authorized and empowered, in
    his discretion, to defer the dates of payments of any charges,
    rentals, and penalties which have accrued prior to the 2d day of
    March, 1924, under the Act of June 17, 1902 (32 Stat. 388), and
    amendatory and supplemental acts or prior to that date, as against
    water users on any irrigation project being constructed or operated
    and maintained under the direction of the Commissioner of Indian
    Affairs, as may, in his judgment, be necessary in or concerning any
    irrigation project existing on May 9, 1924, under said act:
    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
    this section, any penalty provided by the law in effect on May 9,
    1924, shall thereupon attach from the date of such default.
      (b) Where an individual water user, or individual applicant for a
    water right under a Federal irrigation project constructed or being
    constructed under the Act of June 17, 1902 (32 Stat. 388), or any
    act amendatory thereof or supplementary thereto, makes application
    prior to January 1, 1925, alleging that he will be unable to make
    the payments as required in subsection (a) of this section, the
    Secretary of the Interior is authorized in his discretion prior to
    March 1, 1925, to add such accrued and unpaid charges to the
    construction charge of the land of such water user or applicant,
    and to distribute such accumulated charges equally over each of 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
    such extension is necessary.

      The Secretary of the Interior, giving due consideration to the
    temporary nature of the requirements therefor, is authorized to
    make such provision as he deems to be necessary and in the public
    interest for the education of dependents of persons employed on the

    be cast upon the facilities of the public-school districts serving
    the areas in which construction is being undertaken, and to pay for
    the same from any funds available for the construction of said
    projects: Provided, That the Secretary of the Interior shall enter
    into cooperative arrangements with local school districts wherein
    such features are situated to contribute toward covering the cost
    of furnishing the educational services required for such
    dependents, or for the operation by those school districts of

    Sec. 390. Utilization of dams and reservoir projects for irrigation
        purposes; additional construction; necessity of authorization;

-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.

-HEAD-
    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.

    such equitable reallocation of reservoir storage capacities among
    the purposes served by the project as may be necessary due to
    sedimentation, and not limited to the term of years which may be
    prescribed in any lease agreement or other agreement with the
    Government, but the enjoyment of such right will remain subject to
    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
    connection with such operation.

    (a) Development of detailed plan of demonstration projects;
        requisite features of plan
      During phase I, the Bureau, in consultation with the High Plains
    States and other Reclamation Act States and other appropriate
    departments and agencies of the United States, including the United
    States Geological Survey, shall develop a detailed plan of
    demonstration projects the purpose of which is to determine whether
    various recharge technologies may be applied to diverse geologic
    and hydrologic conditions represented in the High Plains States and
    other Reclamation Act States. In the preparation and development of
    such plan, the Bureau shall make maximum use of data, planning
    studies and other technical resources and assistance available from
    State and local entities: Provided, That contributions of such
    technical resources and assistance may be counted as part of the
    inkind services or other State contribution, but shall otherwise be
    provided without compensation to the State or local entity.  This
    plan shall contain the selection of not less than a total of twelve
    demonstration project sites in High Plains States and not less than
    a total of nine demonstration project sites in other Reclamation
    Act States. Demonstration project sites shall be confined to areas
    having a declining water table, an available surface water supply,
    and a high probability of physical, chemical, and economic
    feasibility for recharge of the groundwater reservoir.  The plan
    shall provide for demonstration of the application of recharge
    technology and the selection of water sources, determination of
    necessary physical works and the operation of water replacement
    systems, formulation of a monitoring program, identification of any
    economic, legal, intergovernmental, and environmental issues and
    projection of planning problems associated with such systems, and
    recommendation of legislative and administrative actions as may be
    necessary to carry out phase II.
    (b) Recommendation of demonstration projects
      During phase I the Bureau is authorized and directed to recommend
    demonstration projects to be designed, constructed, and operated
    during phase II.
    (c) Preliminary selection of projects
      Within six months, after the enactment of an appropriation Act to
    carry out phase I, the Secretary shall make a preliminary selection
    of projects to receive further planning and development and shall
    initiate such further planning and development for those selected
    projects.

-STATUTE-
    (a) General authority; Federal and non-Federal cost shares
      The Secretary is authorized to participate with appropriate
    Federal, State, regional, and local authorities in studies to
    determine the feasibility of water reclamation and reuse projects
    recommended for such study pursuant to section 390h-1 of this
    title.  The Federal share of the costs of such feasibility studies
    shall not exceed 50 per centum of the total, except that the
    Secretary may increase the Federal share of the costs of such
    feasibility study if the Secretary determines, based upon a
    demonstration of financial hardship on the part of the non-Federal
    participant, that the non-Federal participant is unable to
    contribute at least 50 per centum of the costs of such study.  The
    Secretary may accept as part of the non-Federal cost share the
    contribution of such in-kind services by the non-Federal
    participant that the Secretary determines will contribute
    substantially toward the conduct and completion of the study.
    (b) Federal share considered project costs; reimbursement
      The Federal share of feasibility studies, including those
    described in sections 390h-4 and 390h-6 through 390h-8 of this
    title, shall be considered as project costs and shall be reimbursed
    in accordance with the Federal reclamation laws, if the project
    studied is implemented.
    (c) Matters to be considered
      In addition to the requirements of other Federal laws,
    feasibility studies conducted by the Secretary or the non-Federal
    project sponsor under sections 390h to 390h-15 of this title shall
    consider, among other things -
        (1) near- and long-term water demand and supplies in the study
      area;
        (2) all potential uses for reclaimed water;
        (3) at least two alternative measures or technologies available
      for water reclamation, distribution, and reuse for the project
      under consideration;
        (4) public health and environmental quality issues associated
      with use of reclaimed water;
        (5) whether development of the water reclamation and reuse
      measures under study would -
          (A) reduce, postpone, or eliminate development of new or
        expanded water supplies,
          (B) reduce or eliminate the use of existing diversions from
        natural watercourses or withdrawals from aquifers, or
          (C) reduce the demand on existing Federal water supply
        facilities;
        (6) the market or dedicated use for reclaimed water in the
      project's service area; and
        (7) the financial capability of the non-Federal project sponsor
      to fund its proportionate share of the project's construction
      costs on an annual basis.

        (3) which amends its contract for the purpose of conforming to
      the provisions of this subchapter.
    (b) Amendment of existing contracts
      Any district which has an existing contract with the Secretary as
    of October 12, 1982, which does not enter into an amendment of such
    contract as specified in subsection (a) of this section shall be
    subject to Federal reclamation law in effect immediately prior to

    recipient may elect to be subject to the provisions of this
    subchapter by executing an irrevocable election in a form approved
    by the Secretary to comply with this subchapter.  The district

    recipient, for the credit of the United States, the additional
    charges required by this subchapter and assignable to the recipient
    making the election.
    (d) Consent of non-Federal party

      Notwithstanding any extension of time of any recordable contract
    as provided in section 390ii(e) of this title, lands under
    recordable contract shall be eligible to receive irrigation water

    (a) Price adequate to recover charges
      The price of irrigation water delivered by the Secretary pursuant
    to a contract or an amendment to a contract with a district, as

    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
      of this title.

    (a) Implementation of program by non-Federal recipients
      The Secretary shall, pursuant to his authorities under otherwise
    existing Federal reclamation law, encourage the full consideration
    and incorporation of prudent and responsible water conservation
    measures in the operations of non-Federal recipients of irrigation
    water from Federal reclamation projects, where such measures are
    shown to be economically feasible for such non-Federal recipients.
    (b) Development of plan
      Each district that has entered into a repayment contract or water
    service contract pursuant to Federal reclamation law or the Water
    Supply Act of 1958, as amended (43 U.S.C. 390b), shall develop a
    water conservation plan which shall contain definite goals,
    appropriate water conservation measures, and a time schedule for
    meeting the water conservation objectives.
    (c) Coordination of ongoing programs; full public participation
      The Secretary is authorized and directed to enter into
    memorandums of agreement with those Federal agencies having
    capability to assist in implementing water conservation measures to
    assure coordination of ongoing programs.  Such memorandums should
    provide for involvement of non-Federal entities such as States,
    Indian tribes, and water user organizations to assure full public
    participation in water conservation efforts.

    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.

        (a) the maximum amount of any loan to be made to the
      organization and the time and method of making the same available
      to the organization.  Said loan shall not exceed the lesser of
      (1) two-thirds of the maximum allowable estimated total project
      cost as determined by section 422b(f) of this title, or (2) the
      estimated total cost of the project minus the contribution of the
      local organization as provided in section 422d(b) of this title
      and the amount of the grant approved;
        (b) the maximum amount of any grant to be accorded the
      organization.  Said grant shall not exceed the sum of the
      following: (1) the costs of investigations, surveys, and
      engineering and other services necessary to the preparation of
      proposals and plans for the project allocable to fish and
      wildlife enhancement or public recreation; (2) one-half the costs
      of acquiring lands or interests therein to serve exclusively the
      purposes of fish and wildlife enhancement or public recreation,
      plus the costs of acquiring joint use lands and interests therein
      properly allocable to fish and wildlife enhancement and public
      recreation; (3) one-half the costs of basic public outdoor
      recreation facilities or facilities serving fish and wildlife
      enhancement purposes exclusively; (4) one-half the costs of
      construction of joint use facilities properly allocable to fish
      and wildlife enhancement or public recreation; (5) that portion
      of the estimated cost of constructing the project which, if it
      were constructed as a Federal reclamation project, would be
      properly allocable to functions, other than recreation and fish
      and wildlife enhancement and flood control, which are
      nonreimbursable under general provisions of law applicable to
      such projects; and (6) that portion of the estimated cost of
      constructing the project which is allocable to flood control and
      which would be nonreimbursable under general provisions of law
      applicable to projects constructed by the Secretary of the Army.
      (FOOTNOTE 1)
       (FOOTNOTE 1) So in original.  The period probably should be a
    semicolon.

      lent to it in not more than forty years from the date when the
      principal benefits of the project first become available; (2)
      interest, as determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, as of
      the beginning of the fiscal year in which the contract is
      executed, on the basis of the average market yields on
      outstanding marketable obligations of the United States with
      remaining periods of maturity comparable to the applicable
      reimbursement period of the project, adjusted to the nearest
      one-eighth of 1 percent on the unamortized balance of any portion
      of the loan -
          (A) which is attributable to furnishing irrigation benefits
        in each particular year to land held in private ownership by a
        qualified recipient or by a limited recipient, as such terms
        are defined in section 390bb of this title, in excess of three
        hundred and twenty irrigable acres; or,
          (B) which is allocated to domestic, industrial, or municipal
        water supply, commercial power, fish and wildlife enhancement,
        or public recreation except that portion of such allocation
        attributable to furnishing benefits to a facility operated by
        an agency of the United States, which portion shall bear no
        interest. (FOOTNOTE 1)
        (d) provision for operation of the project, if a grant
      predicated upon its performance of nonreimbursable functions is
      made, in accordance with regulations with respect thereto
      prescribed by the head of the Federal department or agency
      primarily concerned with those functions and, in the event of
      noncompliance with such regulations, for operation by the United
      States or for repayment to the United States of the amount of any
      such grant;
        (e) such provisions as the Secretary shall deem necessary or
      proper to provide assurance of and security for prompt repayment
      of the loan and interest as aforesaid.  The liability of the
      United States under any contract entered into pursuant to this
      subchapter shall be contingent upon the availability of
      appropriations to carry out the same, and every such contract
      shall so recite; and
        (f) provisions conforming to the preference requirements
      contained in the proviso to section 485h(c) of this title, if the
      project produces electric power for sale.

    contract covering the land so excluded or to the irrigation
    district affected; which in turn shall be charged with the
    responsibility of making suitable adjustment with the landowners
    involved.  Should all the irrigable lands of a water-right
    applicant be excluded from the project as permanently unproductive,
    and no exchange be made as provided in said section, the total
    construction charges paid before May 25, 1926, less any accrued
    charges on account of operation and maintenance, shall be refunded

      The payment of all construction charges against said areas
    temporarily unproductive shall remain suspended until the Secretary
    of the Interior shall declare them to be possessed of sufficient
    productive power properly to be placed in a paying class, whereupon
    payment of construction charges against such areas shall be resumed
    or shall begin, as the case may be.  Any payments made on such
    areas shall be credited to the unpaid balance of the construction
    charge on the productive area of each unit.  Such credit shall be
    applied on and after April 23, 1930, which shall not be construed
    to require revision of accounts adjusted before April 23, 1930,
    under the provisions of this section as originally enacted.  While
    said lands so classified as temporarily unproductive and the
    construction charges against them are suspended, water for
    irrigation purposes may be furnished upon payment of the usual
    operation and maintenance charges, or such other charges as may be
    fixed by the Secretary of the Interior the advance payment of which
    may be required, in the discretion of the said Secretary. Should
    said lands temporarily classed as unproductive, or any of them, in
    the future be found by the Secretary of the Interior to be
    permanently unproductive, the charges against them shall be charged
    off as a permanent loss to the reclamation fund and they shall
    thereupon be treated in the same manner as other permanently
    unproductive lands as provided in sections 423 to 423g and 610 of
    this title except that no refund shall be made of the construction
    charges paid on such unproductive areas and applied as a credit on
    productive areas as herein authorized.

-STATUTE-
      Settlers who have unpatented entries under any of the public land
    laws embracing lands which have been eliminated from the project,
    or whose entries under water rights have been so reduced that the
    remaining area is insufficient to support a family, shall be
    entitled to exchange their entries for other public lands within
    the same project or any other existing Federal reclamation project,
    with credit under the homestead laws for residence, improvement,
    and cultivation made or performed by them upon their original
    entries and with credit upon the new entry for any construction
    charges paid upon or in connection with the original entry:
    Provided, That when satisfactory final proof has been made on the
    original entry it shall not be necessary to submit final proof upon
    the lieu entry.  Any entryman whose entry or farm unit is reduced
    by the elimination of permanently unproductive land shall be
    entitled to enter an equal amount of available public land on the
    same project contiguous to or in the vicinity of the farm unit
    reduced by elimination, with all credits in this section
    hereinbefore specified in lieu of the lands eliminated.  Owners of
    private lands so eliminated from the project may, subject to the
    approval of the Secretary of the Interior, and free from all
    encumbrances, relinquish and convey to the United States lands so
    owned and held by them, not exceeding an area of one hundred and
    sixty acres, and select an equal area of vacant public land within
    the irrigable area of the same or any other Federal reclamation
    project, with credit upon the construction costs of the lands
    selected to the extent and in the amount paid upon or in connection
    with their relinquished lands, and the Secretary of the Interior is
    authorized to revise and consolidate farm units, so far as this may
    be made necessary or advisable, with a view to carrying out the
    provisions of this section: Provided further, That the rights
    extended under this section shall not be assignable: And provided
    further, That in administering the provisions of this section and
    section 423a of this title, the Secretary of the Interior shall
    take into consideration the rights and interests of lien holders,
    as to him may seem just and equitable: Provided further, That where
    two entrymen apply for the same farm unit under the exchange
    provisions of this section, only one whom (FOOTNOTE 1) is an
    ex-service man, as defined by section 438 (FOOTNOTE 2) of this

    Sec. 423d. Amendment of existing water right contracts by Secretary
        of the Interior
 
-STATUTE-
      The Secretary of the Interior is authorized, in his discretion,
    to amend any existing water-right contract to the extent necessary
    to carry out the provisions of sections 423 to 423g and 610 of this
    title, upon request of the holder of such contract.  The Secretary
    of the Interior, as a condition precedent to the amendment of any
    existing water-right contract, shall require the execution of a
    contract by a water-users' association or irrigation district
    whereby such association or irrigation district shall be required
    to pay to the United States, without regard to default in the
    payment of charges against any individual farm unit or tract of
    irrigable land, the entire charges against all productive lands
    remaining in the project after the permanently unproductive lands
    shall have been eliminated and the charges against temporarily
    unproductive areas shall have been suspended in the manner and to
    the extent authorized and directed by sections 423 to 423g and 610
    of this title.
      The Secretary is authorized, in his discretion, upon request of
    individual water users or districts, and upon performance of the
    condition precedent above set forth, to amend any existing
    water-right contract to provide for increase in the time for
    payment of construction charges, which have not been accrued, to
    the extent that may be necessary under the conditions in each case,
    subject to the limitation that there shall be allowed for repayment
    not more than forty years from the date the first payment matured
    under the original contract, and also to extend the time for
    payment of operation and maintenance or water-rental charges due
    and unpaid for such period as in his judgment may be necessary not
    exceeding five years, the charges so extended to bear interest
    payable annually at the rate of 6 per centum per annum until paid,
    and to contract for the payment of the construction charges then
    due and unpaid within such term of years as the Secretary may find
    to be necessary, with interest payable annually at the rate of 6
    per centum per annum until paid.
      The Secretary of the Interior is authorized to complete and
    execute the supplemental contract, being negotiated on May 25,
    1926, and which had, on that date, been approved as to form by the
    Secretary, between the United States and the Belle Fourche
    Irrigation District and at the expiration of said supplemental
    contract to enter into a permanent contract on behalf of the United
    States with said District in accordance with the terms of said
    supplemental contract.

        States; limitations on sale of land
 
-STATUTE-
      No water shall be delivered upon the completion of any new
    project or new division of a project until a contract or contracts
    in form approved by the Secretary of the Interior shall have been
    made with an irrigation district or irrigation districts organized
    under State law providing for payment by the district or districts
    of the cost of constructing, operating, and maintaining the works
    during the time they are in control of the United States, such cost
    of constructing to be repaid within such terms of years as the
    Secretary may find to be necessary, in any event not more than
    forty years from the date of public notice hereinafter referred to,
    and the execution of said contract or contracts shall have been
    confirmed by a decree of a court of competent jurisdiction.  Prior
    to or in connection with the settlement and development of each of
    these projects, the Secretary of the Interior is authorized in his
    discretion to enter into agreement with the proper authorities of
    the State or States wherein said projects or divisions are located
    whereby such State or States shall cooperate with the United States
    in promoting the settlement of the projects or divisions after
    completion and in the securing and selecting of settlers.  Such
    contract or contracts with irrigation districts hereinbefore
    referred to shall further provide that all irrigable land held in
    private ownership by any one owner in excess of one hundred and
    sixty irrigable acres shall be appraised in a manner to be
    prescribed by the Secretary of the Interior and the sale prices
    thereof fixed by the Secretary on the basis of its actual bona fide
    value at the date of appraisal without reference to the proposed
    construction of the irrigation works; and that no such excess lands
    so held shall receive water from any project or division if the
    owners thereof shall refuse to execute valid recordable contracts
    for the sale of such lands under terms and conditions satisfactory
    to the Secretary of the Interior and at prices not to exceed those
    fixed by the Secretary of the Interior; and that until one-half the
    construction charges against said lands shall have been fully paid
    no sale of any such lands shall carry the right to receive water
    unless and until the purchase price involved in such sale is
    approved by the Secretary of the Interior and that upon proof of
    fraudulent representation as to the true consideration involved in
    such sales the Secretary of the Interior is authorized to cancel
    the water right attaching to the land involved in such fraudulent
    sales: Provided, however, That if excess land is acquired by
    foreclosure or other process of law, by conveyance in satisfaction
    of mortgages, by inheritance, or by devise, water therefor may be
    furnished temporarily for a period not exceeding five years from
    the effective date of such acquisition, delivery of water
    thereafter ceasing until the transfer thereof to a landowner duly
    qualified to secure water therefor: Provided further, That the
    operation and maintenance charges on account of lands in said
    projects and divisions shall be paid annually in advance not later
    than March 1. It shall be the duty of the Secretary of the Interior
    to give public notice when water is actually available, and the
    operation and maintenance charges payable to the United States for
    the first year after such public notice shall be transferred to and
    paid as a part of the construction payment.

    project under the Act of June 17, 1902, and the desert-land
    entryman has been or may be directly or indirectly hindered,

    prevented from complying with the desert-land law shall not be
    computed in determining the time within which such entryman has
    been or may be required to make improvements or reclaim the land
    embraced within any such desert-land entry: Provided, That if after

    any such entryman shall begin to run from the date of notice of
    such abandonment of the project and the restoration to the public

    shall be allowed for all expenditures and improvements theretofore
    made on any such desert-land entry of which proof has been or may
    be filed; but if the reclamation project is carried to completion
    so as to make available a water supply for the land embraced in any
    such desert-land entry the entryman shall thereupon comply with all
    the provisions of the aforesaid action (FOOTNOTE 1) of June 17,
    1902, and shall relinquish within a reasonable time after notice as
    the Secretary may prescribe and not less than two years all land
    embraced within his desert-land entry in excess of one farm unit,
    as determined by the Secretary of the Interior, and as to such
    retained farm unit he shall be entitled to make final proof and
    obtain patent upon compliance with the regulations of said
    Secretary applicable to the remainder of the irrigable land of the
    project and with the terms of payment prescribed in said Act of
    June 17, 1902, and not otherwise.  But nothing herein contained

    right and reclaims the land embraced in his entry to accept the
    conditions of said reclamation Act.
       (FOOTNOTE 1) So in original.  Probably should be ''Act''.

-STATUTE-
    (a) Credits to entryman
      If an entryman making an exchange under the provisions of this
    subchapter becomes the direct obligor for payment to the United
    States of irrigation construction charges for his lieu farm unit or
    undertakes a contract under which the equivalent, in whole or in
    part, of such charges is returned to the United States, the
    Secretary, to the extent to which such charges upon the original
    farm unit or the equivalent thereof have actually been paid to the
    United States or to an irrigation district or other form of
    organization under contract with the United States, may give him
    credit for such charges upon the lieu unit.
    (b) Credits to district; reduction of costs
      If an irrigation district or other form of organization within
    the boundaries of which is located the lieu farm unit of an
    entryman making an exchange under the provisions of this subchapter
    is or becomes the direct obligor for payment to the United States
    of irrigation construction charges or undertakes or has undertaken
    a contract under which the equivalent, in whole or in part, of such
    charges is returned to the United States, the Secretary may, to the
    extent to which it gives credit to the entryman for such charges or
    the equivalent thereof actually paid upon the original farm unit,
    give the district or other form of organization credit for payment
    of such charges.  Upon the making of an exchange pursuant to the
    provisions of this subchapter, the Secretary may reduce (i) the
    reimbursable construction costs of the project or division thereof
    upon which the original farm unit was located by the amount of such
    costs which were properly assignable to the original farm unit and
    which were not then due and payable, and (ii) the reimbursable
    construction costs of the project or division thereof upon which
    the lieu farm unit is located by the amount of credit which might
    be given under the provisions of this section.
    (c) Extension of benefits to districts
      In any case in which the benefits of this subchapter are extended
    to an assignee of an unpatented farm unit or to a resident owner of
    private lands, as provided in subsection (b) of section 451a of
    this title, an appropriate extension of benefits may also be made
    to an irrigation district or other form of organization under
    subsection (b) of this section.

    provided in this subchapter, the Secretary may cancel and release,
    in whole or in part, any and all charges or liens against the
    entryman or against the relinquished farm unit which are within his
    administrative jurisdiction.  In administering the provisions of
    this subsection the Secretary shall take into consideration other
    charges and liens and the rights and interests of other lien
    holders as to him may seem just and equitable.
      (b) An entryman making an exchange under the provisions of this
    subchapter may be given credit by the Secretary upon any land
    development charges made by the United States in connection with
    the lieu farm unit for any such charges paid to the United States
    in connection with the original unit.  A resident owner making an
    exchange under the provisions of this subchapter may, to the
    extent, to which he or, in the case of a widow, widower, heir, or

    farm unit; such credit may also be applied in the manner and
    circumstances provided in section 451b of this title upon
    irrigation construction charges for or properly assignable to his

-STATUTE-
      In connection with any repayment contract or other form of
    obligation, existing on August 4, 1939, to pay construction
    charges, providing for repayment on the basis of a definite period,
    the Secretary is authorized, upon request by the water users
    involved or their duly authorized representatives for amendment
    under this section of said contract or other form of obligation,
    and if in the Secretary's judgement such amendment is both
    practicable and in keeping with the general purpose of this
    subchapter, to amend said contract or other form of obligation so
    as to provide that the construction charges remaining unaccrued on
    the date of the amendment, or any later date agreed upon, shall be
    spread in definite annual installments on the basis of a longer
    definite period fixed in each case by the Secretary: Provided, That
    for any construction charges said longer period shall not exceed
    forty years, exclusive of 1931 and subsequent years to the extent
    of moratoria or deferments of construction charges due and payable
    for such years effected pursuant to Acts of Congress, from the date
    when the first installment of said construction charges become due
    and payable under the original obligation to pay said construction
    charges and in no event shall the unexpired part of said longer
    period exceed double the number of remaining years, as of the date
    of the amendment made pursuant to this subchapter, in which
    installments of said construction charges would become due and
    payable under said existing repayment contract or other form of
    obligation to pay construction charges.

        determination of undue burden; conditions; supplemental

-STATUTE-
      (a) The authority granted in section 485b of this title for
    modification of existing repayment contracts or other forms of
    obligations to pay construction charges shall continue through
    December 31, 1960.
      (b) The Secretary is authorized, subject to the provisions of
    this subsection to defer the time for the payment of such part of
    any installments of construction charges under any repayment
    contract or other form of obligation as he deems necessary to
    adjust such installments to amounts within the probable ability of
    the water users to pay.  Any such deferment shall be effected only
    after findings by the Secretary that the installments under
    consideration probably cannot be paid on their due date without
    undue burden on the water users, considering the various factors
    which in the Secretary's judgment bear on the ability of the water
    users so to pay.
      The Secretary may effect the deferments hereunder subject to such
    conditions and provisions relating to the operation and maintenance
    of the project involved as he deems to be in the interest of the
    United States. If, however, any deferments would affect
    installments to accrue more than twelve months after the action of
    deferment, they shall be effected only by a formal supplemental
    contract.  Such a contract shall provide by its terms that, it
    being only an interim solution of the repayment problems dealt with
    therein, its terms are not, in themselves, to be construed as a
    criterion of the terms of any amendatory contract that may be
    negotiated and that any such amendatory contract must be approved
    by the Congress unless it does not lengthen the repayment period
    for the project in question beyond that permitted by the laws
    applicable to that project, involves no reduction in the total
    amount payable by the water users, and is not in other respects
    less advantageous to the Government than the existing contract
    arrangements.  The Secretary shall report to the Congress all
    deferments granted under this subsection.

    each year to be made to the United States shall become due and
    payable on such date or dates, not exceeding two, in each year as
    the Secretary determines will be substantially contemporaneous with
    the time or times in each year when water users receive crop
    returns and (2) if the contract be with an organization, that
    assessments or levies for the purpose of obtaining moneys
    sufficient to meet the organization's payments under said contract
    shall be made and shall become due and payable within a certain
    period or periods of time prior to the date or dates on which the
    organization's payments to the United States are due and payable,
    said period or periods of time to be agreed upon in each said
    contract.

      In connection with any contract, relating to construction

    the Secretary is authorized to require such provisions as he deems
    proper to secure the adoption of proper accounting, to protect the
    condition of project works and to provide for the proper use
    thereof, and to protect project lands against deterioration due to
    improper use of water.  Any such contract shall require advance
    payment of adequate operation and maintenance charges.  The
    Secretary is further authorized, in his discretion, to require such
    provisions as he deems proper to penalize delinquencies in payments
    of construction charges or operation and maintenance charges:
    Provided, That in any event there shall be penalties imposed on
    account of delinquencies of not less than one-half of 1 per centum
    per month of the delinquent charge from and after the date when
    such charge becomes due and payable: Provided further, That any
    such contract shall require that no water shall be delivered to
    lands or parties which are in arrears in the advance payment of
    operation and maintenance or toll charges, or to lands or parties
    which are in arrears for more than twelve months in the payment of
    construction charges due from such lands or parties to the United
    States or to the organization in which the lands or parties are
    included, or to any lands or parties included in an organization
    which is in arrears in the advance payment of operation and
    maintenance or toll charges or in arrears more than twelve months
    in the payment of construction charges due from such organization
    to the United States.

    Sec. 485f. Negotiation of equitable contracts by Secretary
 
-STATUTE-
    (a) Existing project contract unit
      The Secretary is authorized and directed to investigate the
    repayment problems of any existing project contract unit in
    connection with which, in his judgment, a contract under section
    485b or 485c (FOOTNOTE 1) of this title would not be practicable
    nor provide an economically sound adjustment, and to negotiate a
    contract which, in his judgment, both would provide fair and
    equitable treatment of the repayment problems involved and would be
    in keeping with the general purpose of this subchapter.
       (FOOTNOTE 1) See References in Text note below.
    (b) New projects or projects under construction; public lands;
        development periods
      For any project, division of a project, development unit of a
    project, or supplemental works on a project, under construction on
    August 4, 1939, or for which appropriations had been made, and in
    connection with which a repayment contract had not been executed,
    allocations of costs may be made in accordance with the provisions
    of section 485h of this title and a repayment contract may be
    negotiated, in the discretion of the Secretary, (1) pursuant to the
    authority of subsection (a) of this section or (2) in accordance,
    as near as may be, with the provisions in section 485h(d) or
    485h(e) of this title.  In connection with any such project,
    division, or development unit, on which the majority of the lands
    involved are public lands of the United States, the Secretary,
    prior to entering into a repayment contract, may fix a development
    period for each irrigation block, if any, of not to exceed ten
    years from and including the first year in which water is delivered
    for the lands in said block: Provided, That in the event a
    development period is fixed prior to execution of a repayment
    contract, execution thereof shall be a condition precedent to
    delivery of water after the close of the development period.
    During any such development period water shall be delivered to the
    lands in the irrigation block involved only on a toll-charge basis,
    at a charge per annum per acre-foot to be fixed by the Secretary
    each year and to be collected in advance of delivery of water.
    Pending negotiation and execution of a repayment contract for any
    other such project, division, or development unit, water may be
    delivered for a period of not more than five years from August 4,
    1939, on the same toll-charge basis.  Any such toll charges
    collected and which the Secretary determines to be in excess of the
    cost of operation and maintenance during the toll-charge period
    shall be credited to the construction cost of the project in the
    manner determined by the Secretary.
    (c) Report of proposed contracts to Congress; approval; amendment
        after approval
      The Secretary from time to time shall report to the Congress on
    any proposed contracts negotiated pursuant to the authority of
    subsection (a) or (b)(1) of this section, and he may execute any
    such contract on behalf of the United States only after approval
    thereof has been given by Act of Congress. Contracts, so approved,
    however, may be amended from time to time by mutual agreement and
    without further approval by Congress if such amendments are within
    the scope of authority granted prior to or after April 24, 1945, to
    the Secretary under any Act, except that amendments providing for
    repayment of construction charges in a period of years longer than
    authorized by this subchapter, as it may be amended, shall be
    effective only when approved by Congress.

    Sec. 485g. Classification of lands
 
-STATUTE-
    (a) Generally
      The Secretary is authorized and directed in the manner
    hereinafter provided to classify or to reclassify, from time to
    time but not more often than at five-year intervals, as to
    irrigability and productivity those lands which have been, are, or
    may be included within any project.
    (b) Necessity for request
      No classification or reclassification pursuant to the authority
    of this subchapter shall be undertaken unless a request therefor,
    by an organization or duly authorized representatives of the water
    users, in the form required by subsection (c) of this section has
    been made of the Secretary. The Secretary shall plan the
    classification work, undertaken pursuant to the authority of this
    section, in such manner as in his judgment will result in the most
    expeditious completion of the work.
    (c) Furnishing data
      In any request made to the Secretary for a land classification or
    reclassification under this section, the organization or
    representatives of the water users shall furnish a list of those
    lands which are considered to be of comparatively low productivity
    or to be nonproductive, and of those lands which are considered to
    be of greater or lesser productivity than indicated by existing
    classifications, if any, made pursuant to the Federal reclamation
    laws, and shall furnish also such data relating thereto as the
    Secretary by regulation may require.
    (d) Primary determination
      Upon receipt of any such request the Secretary shall make a
    preliminary determination whether the requested land classification
    or reclassification probably is justified by reason of the
    conditions of the lands involved and other pertinent conditions of
    the project, including its contractual relations with the United
    States.
    (e) Probable justification
      If the Secretary finds probable justification and if the advance
    to the United States hereinafter required is made, he shall
    undertake as soon as practicable the classification or
    reclassification of the lands listed in the request, and of any
    other lands which have been, are, or may be included within the
    project involved and which in his judgment should be classified or
    reclassified.
    (f) Expenses
      One-half of the expense involved in any classification work
    undertaken pursuant to this section shall be charged to operation
    and maintenance administration nonreimbursable; and one-half shall
    be paid in advance by the organization involved.  On determining
    probable justification for the requested classification or
    reclassification as provided in this section, the Secretary shall
    estimate the cost of the work involved and shall submit a statement
    of the estimated cost to said organization.  Said organization,
    before commencement of the work, shall advance to the United States
    one-half of the amount set forth in said statement and also shall
    advance one-half of the amount of supplementary estimates of costs
    which the Secretary may find it necessary to make from time to time
    during the progress of the work; and said amounts shall be and
    remain available for expenditure by the Secretary for the purposes
    for which they are advanced, until the work is completed or
    abandoned.  After completion or abandonment of the work, the
    Secretary, shall determine the actual costs thereof; and said
    organization shall pay any additional amount required to make its
    total payments hereunder equal to one-half of the actual cost or
    shall be credited with any amount by which advances made by it
    exceed one-half of said actual cost, as the case may be.
    (g) Classification as prerequisite to contract
      If in the judgment of the Secretary a classification or
    reclassification pursuant to the provisions of this section is a
    necessary preliminary to entering into a contract under section
    485b or 485c (FOOTNOTE 1) of this title, he may require the same as

-STATUTE-
    (a) Findings of Secretary
      No expenditures for the construction of any new project, new
    division of a project, or new supplemental works on a project shall
    be made, nor shall estimates be submitted therefor, by the
    Secretary until after he has made an investigation thereof and has
    submitted to the President and to the Congress his report and
    findings on -
        (1) the engineering feasibility of the proposed construction;
        (2) the estimated cost of the proposed construction;
        (3) the part of the estimated cost which can properly be
      allocated to irrigation and probably be repaid by the water
      users;
        (4) the part of the estimated cost which can properly be
      allocated to power and probably be returned to the United States
      in net power revenues;
        (5) the part of the estimated cost which can properly be
      allocated to municipal water supply or other miscellaneous
      purposes and probably be returned to the United States.
    If the proposed construction is found by the Secretary to have
    engineering feasibility and if the repayable and returnable
    allocations to irrigation, power, and municipal water supply or
    other miscellaneous purposes found by the Secretary to be proper,
    together with any allocation to flood control or navigation made
    under subsection (b) of this section, equal the total estimated
    cost of construction as determined by the Secretary, then the new
    project, new division of a project, or supplemental works on a
    project, covered by his findings, shall be deemed authorized and
    may be undertaken by the Secretary. If all such allocations do not
    equal said total estimated cost, then said new project, new
    division, or new supplemental works may be undertaken by the
    Secretary only after provision therefor has been made by Act of
    Congress enacted after the Secretary has submitted to the President
    and the Congress the report and findings involved.
    (b) Allocation of part of cost to flood control or navigation
      In connection with any new project, new division of a project, or
    supplemental works on a project there may be allocated to flood
    control or navigation the part of said total estimated cost which
    the Secretary may find to be proper.  Items for any such
    allocations made in connection with projects which may be
    undertaken pursuant to subsection (a) of this section shall be
    included in the estimates of appropriations submitted by the
    Secretary for said projects, and funds for such portions of the
    projects shall not become available except as directly appropriated
    or allotted to the Department of the Interior. In connection with
    the making of such an allocation, the Secretary shall consult with
    the Chief of Engineers and the Secretary of the Army, and may
    perform any of the necessary investigations or studies under a
    cooperative agreement with the Secretary of the Army. In the event
    of such an allocation the Secretary of the Interior shall operate
    the project for purposes of flood control or navigation, to the
    extent justified by said allocation therefor.
    (c) Furnishing water to municipalities; sale of electric power;
        lease of power privileges
      The Secretary is authorized to enter into contracts to furnish
    water for municipal water supply or miscellaneous purposes:
    Provided, That any such contract either (1) shall require repayment
    to the United States, over a period of not to exceed forty years
    from the year in which water is first delivered for the use of the
    contracting party, with interest not exceeding the rate of 3 1/2
    per centum per annum if the Secretary determines an interest charge
    to be proper, of an appropriate share as determined by the
    Secretary of that part of the construction costs allocated by him
    to municipal water supply or other miscellaneous purposes; or (2)
    shall be for such periods, not to exceed forty years, and at such
    rates as in the Secretary's judgment will produce revenues at least
    sufficient to cover an appropriate share of the annual operation
    and maintenance cost and an appropriate share of such fixed charges
    as the Secretary deems proper, and shall require the payment of
    said rates each year in advance of delivery of water for said
    year.  Any sale of electric power or lease of power privileges,
    made by the Secretary in connection with the operation of any
    project or division of a project, shall be for such periods, not to
    exceed forty years, and at such rates as in his judgment will
    produce power revenues at least sufficient to cover an appropriate
    share of the annual operation and maintenance cost, interest on an
    appropriate share of the construction investment at not less than 3
    per centum per annum, and such other fixed charges as the Secretary
    deems proper: Provided further, That in said sales or leases
    preference shall be given to municipalities and other public
    corporations or agencies; and also to cooperatives and other
    nonprofit organizations financed in whole or in part by loans made
    pursuant to the Rural Electrification Act of 1936 (7 U.S.C. 901 et
    seq.).  Nothing in this subsection shall be applicable to
    provisions in existing contracts, made pursuant to law, for the use
    of power and miscellaneous revenues of a project for the benefit of
    users of water from such project.  The provisions of this
    subsection respecting the terms of sales of electric power and
    leases of power privileges shall be in addition and alternative to
    any authority in existing laws relating to particular projects.  No
    contract relating to municipal water supply or miscellaneous
    purposes or to electric power or power privileges shall be made
    unless, in the judgment of the Secretary, it will not impair the
    efficiency of the project for irrigation purposes.
    (d) Delivery of water for irrigation; repayment contract
        prerequisites
      No water may be delivered for irrigation of lands in connection
    with any new project, new division of a project, or supplemental
    works on a project until an organization, satisfactory in form and
    powers to the Secretary, has entered into a repayment contract with
    the United States, in a form satisfactory to the Secretary,
    providing among other things -
        (1) That the Secretary may fix a development period for each
      irrigation block, if any, of not to exceed ten years from and
      including the first calendar year in which water is delivered for
      the lands in said block; and that during the development period
      water shall be delivered to the lands in the irrigation block
      involved at a charge per annum per acre-foot, or other charge, to
      be fixed by the Secretary each year and to be paid in advance of
      delivery of water: Provided, That where the lands included in an
      irrigation block are for the most part lands owned by the United
      States, the Secretary, prior to execution of a repayment
      contract, may fix a development period, but in such case
      execution of such a contract shall be a condition precedent to
      delivery of water after the close of the development period:
      Provided further, That when the Secretary, by contract or by
      notice given thereunder, shall have fixed a development period of
      less than ten years, and at any time thereafter but before
      commencement of the repayment period conditions arise which in
      the judgment of the Secretary would have justified the fixing of
      a longer period, he may amend such contract or notice to extend
      such development period to a date not to exceed ten years from
      its commencement, and in a case where no development period was
      provided, he may amend such contract within the same limits:
      Provided further, That when the Secretary shall have deferred the
      payment of all or any part of any installments of construction
      charges under any repayment contract pursuant to the authority of
      the Act of September 21, 1959 (73 Stat. 584), he may, at any time
      prior to the due date prescribed for the first installment not
      reduced by such deferment, and by agreement with the contracting
      organization, terminate the supplemental contract by which such
      deferment was effected, credit the construction payments made,
      and exercise the authority granted in this section.  After the
      close of the development period, any such charges collected and
      which the Secretary determines to be in excess of the cost of the
      operation and maintenance during the development period shall be
      credited to the construction cost of the project in the manner
      determined by the Secretary.
        (2) That the part of the construction costs allocated by the
      Secretary to irrigation shall be included in a general repayment
      obligation of the organization; and that the organization may
      vary its distribution of construction charges in a manner that
      takes into account the productivity of the various classes of
      lands and the benefits accruing to the lands by reason of the
      construction: Provided, That no distribution of construction
      charges over the lands included in the organization shall in any
      manner be deemed to relieve the organization or any party or any
      land therein of the organization's general obligation to the
      United States.
        (3) That the general repayment obligation of the organization
      shall be spread in annual installments, of the number and amounts
      fixed by the Secretary, over a period of not more than 40 years,
      exclusive of any development period fixed under paragraph (1) of
      this subsection, for any project contract unit or, if the project
      contract unit be divided into two or more irrigation blocks, for
      any such block, or as near to said period of not more than forty
      years as is consistent with the adoption and operation of a
      variable payment formula which, being based on full repayment
      within such period under average conditions, permits variance in
      the required annual payments in the light of economic factors
      pertinent to the ability of the organization to pay.
        (4) That the first annual installment for any project contract
      unit, or for any irrigation block, as the case may be, shall
      accrue, on the date fixed by the Secretary, in the year after the
      last year of the development period or, if there be not
      development period, in the calendar year after the Secretary
      announces that the construction contemplated in the repayment
      contract is substantially completed or is advanced to a point
      where delivery of water can be made to substantially all of the
      lands in said unit or block to be irrigated; and if there be no
      development period fixed, that prior to and including the year in
      which the Secretary makes said announcement water shall be
      delivered only on the toll charge basis hereinbefore provided for
      development periods.
    (e) Contracts to furnish water
      In lieu of entering into a repayment contract pursuant to the
    provisions of subsection (d) of this section to cover that part of
    the cost of the construction of works connected with water supply
    and allocated to irrigation, the Secretary, in his discretion, may
    enter into either short- or long-term contracts to furnish water
    for irrigation purposes.  Each such contract shall be for such
    period, not to exceed forty years, and at such rates as in the
    Secretary's judgment will produce revenues at least sufficient to
    cover an appropriate share of the annual operation and maintenance
    cost and an appropriate share of such fixed charges as the
    Secretary deems proper, due consideration being given to that part
    of the cost of construction of works connected with water supply
    and allocated to irrigation; and shall require payment of said
    rates each year in advance of delivery of water for said year.  In
    the event such contracts are made for furnishing water for
    irrigation purposes, the costs of any irrigation water distribution
    works constructed by the United States in connection with the new
    project, new division of a project, or supplemental works on a
    project, shall be covered by a repayment contract entered into
    pursuant to subsection (d) of this section.
    (f) Public participation
      No less than sixty days before entering into or amending any
    repayment contract or any contract for the delivery of irrigation
    water (except any contract for the delivery of surplus or interim
    irrigation water whose duration is for one year or less) the
    Secretary shall -
        (1) publish notice of the proposed contract or amendment in
      newspapers of general circulation in the affected area and shall
      make reasonable efforts to otherwise notify interested parties
      which may be affected by such contract or amendment, together
      with information indicating to whom comments or inquiries
      concerning the proposed actions can be addressed; and
        (2) provide an opportunity for submission of written data,
      views and arguments, and shall consider all substantive comments
      so received.

        component
 
-STATUTE-
      In administering subsections (d) and (e) of section 485h of this
    title, the Secretary of the Interior shall -
        (1) include in any long-term contract hereafter entered into
      under subsection (e) of section 485h of this title provision, if
      the other contracting party so requests, for renewal thereof
      under stated terms and conditions mutually agreeable to the
      parties.  Such terms and conditions shall provide for an increase
      or decrease in the charges set forth in the contract to reflect,
      among other things, increases or decreases in construction,
      operation, and maintenance costs and improvement or deterioration
      in the party's repayment capacity.  Any right of renewal shall be
      exercised within such reasonable time prior to the expiration of
      the contract as the parties shall have agreed upon and set forth
      therein;
        (2) include in any long-term contract hereafter entered into
      under subsection (e) of section 485h of this title with a
      contracting organization provision, if the organization so
      requests, for conversion of said contract, under stated terms and
      conditions mutually agreeable to the parties, to a contract under
      subsection (d) of section 485h of this title at such time as,
      account being taken of the amount credited to return by the
      organization as hereinafter provided, the remaining amount of
      construction cost which is properly assignable for ultimate
      return by it can probably be repaid to the United States within
      the term of a contract under subsection (d) of section 485h of
      this title;
        (3) credit each year to every party which has entered into or
      which shall enter into a long-term contract pursuant to
      subsection (e) of section 485h of this title so much of the
      amount paid by said party on or before the due date as is in
      excess of the share of the operation and maintenance costs of the
      project which the Secretary finds is properly chargeable to that
      party.  Credit for payments heretofore made under any such
      contract shall be established by the Secretary as soon after July
      2, 1956 as it is feasible for him to do so.  After the sum of

      In addition to the construction charge, every water-right

    each separate unit thereof, and such charge shall be made for each
    acre-foot of water delivered; but each acre of irrigable land,
    whether irrigated or not, shall be charged with a minimum operation
    and maintenance charge based upon the charge for delivery of not
    less than one acre-foot of water.  If the total amount of operation
    and maintenance charges and penalties collected for any one
    irrigation season on any project shall exceed the cost of operation
    and maintenance of the project during that irrigation season, the
    balance shall be applied to a reduction of the charge on the
    project for the next irrigation season, and any deficit incurred
    may likewise be added to the charge for the next irrigation season.

    projects governed by the Federal reclamation laws (Act of June 17,
    1902, 32 Stat. 388, and Acts amendatory thereof or supplementary
    thereto), shall be made only after the organizations concerned
    shall have obligated themselves for the return thereof, in
    installments fixed in accordance with their ability to pay, as
    determined by the Secretary of the Interior in the light of their
    outstanding repayment obligations, and which shall, to the fullest
    practicable extent, be scheduled for return with their construction
    charge installments or otherwise scheduled as he shall determine:
    Provided, That repayment of such loans made for small reclamation
    projects shall include interest in accordance with the provisions
    of said Small Reclamation Projects Act. No such determination of
    the Secretary of the Interior shall become effective until the

    defined in section 485a(d) of this title.  Such rehabilitation and
    betterment work may be performed by contract, by force-account, or,
    notwithstanding any other law and subject to such reasonable terms
    and conditions as the Secretary of the Interior shall deem
    appropriate for the protection of the United States, by contract
    entered into with the organization concerned whereby such
    organization shall perform such work.

    Sec. 508. Costs incurred in the modification of structures
 
-STATUTE-
    (a) Costs resulting from age and normal deterioration or lack of
        maintenance of structures
      Costs heretofore or hereafter incurred in the modification of
    structures under this subchapter, the cause of which results from
    age and normal deterioration of the structure or from
    nonperformance of reasonable and normal maintenance of the
    structure by the operating entity shall be considered as project
    costs and will be allocated to the purposes for which the structure
    was authorized initially to be constructed and will be reimbursable
    as provided by existing law.
    (b) Nonreimbursable costs resulting from new hydrologic or seismic
        data or changes in criteria
      With respect to the $100,000,000 authorized to be appropriated in
    the Reclamation Safety of Dams Act of 1978 (43 U.S.C. 509), costs
    heretofore or hereafter incurred in the modification of structures
    under this subchapter, the cause of which results from new
    hydrologic or seismic data or changes in state-of-the-art criteria
    deemed necessary for safety purposes shall be nonreimbursable and
    nonreturnable under the Federal Reclamation law.
    (c) Reimbursable costs resulting from new hydrologic or seismic
        data or changes in criteria
      With respect to the additional $650,000,000 authorized to be
    appropriated in The Reclamation Safety of Dams Act Amendments of
    1984, costs incurred in the modification of structures under this
    subchapter, the cause of which results from new hydrologic or
    seismic data or changes in state-of-the-art criteria deemed
    necessary for safety purposes, shall be reimbursed to the extent
    provided in this subsection.
        (1) Fifteen percent of such costs shall be allocated to the
      authorized purposes of the structure, except that in the case of
      Jackson Lake Dam, Minidoka Project, Idaho-Wyoming, such costs
      shall be allocated in accordance with the allocation of operation
      and maintenance charges.
        (2) Costs allocated to irrigation water service and capable of
      being repaid by the irrigation water users shall be reimbursed
      within 50 years of the year in which the work undertaken pursuant
      to this subchapter is substantially complete.  Costs allocated to
      irrigation water service which are beyond the water users'
      ability to pay shall be reimbursed in accordance with existing
      law.
        (3) Costs allocated to recreation or fish and wildlife
      enhancement shall be reimbursed in accordance with the Federal
      Water Project Recreation Act (79 Stat. 213), as amended (16
      U.S.C. 460l-12 et seq.).
        (4) Costs allocated to the purpose of municipal, industrial,
      and miscellaneous water service, commercial power, and the
      portion of recreation and fish and wildlife enhancement costs
      reimbursable under the Federal Water Project Recreation Act (16
      U.S.C. 460l-12 et seq.), shall be repaid within 50 years with
      interest.  The interest rate used 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
      applicable reimbursement period during the month preceding the
      fiscal year in which the costs are incurred.  To the extent that
      more than one interest rate is determined pursuant to the
      preceding sentence, the Secretary of the Treasury shall establish
      an interest rate at the weighted average of the rates so
      determined.
    (d) Contracts for return of costs
      The Secretary is authorized to negotiate appropriate contracts
    with project beneficiaries providing for the return of reimbursable
    costs under this subchapter: Provided, however, That no contract
    entered into pursuant to this subchapter shall be deemed to be a
    new or amended contract for the purposes of section 390cc(a) of
    this title.

      In carrying out the purposes of the Act of June 17, 1902 (32
    Stat. 388), and Acts amendatory thereof and supplementary thereto
    and known as the reclamation law, the Secretary of the Interior may

    whereby such irrigation district shall agree to pay the moneys
    required to be paid to the United States, and in such event
    water-right applications on the part of landowners and entrymen, in
    the discretion of the Secretary of the Interior, may be dispensed
    with.  In the event of such contract being made with an irrigation
    district, the Secretary of the Interior, in his discretion, may
    contract that the payments, both for the construction of irrigation
    works and for operation and maintenance, on the part of the
    district shall be made upon such dates as will best conform to the
    district and taxation laws of the respective States under which
    such irrigation districts shall be formed, and if he deem it
    advisable he may contract for such penalties or interest charges in
    case of delinquency in payments as he may deem proper and
    consistent with such State laws, notwithstanding the provisions of
    sections 471, 472, 475, 478 to 481, 492, 493, 494 to 497 and 499 of
    this title.  The Secretary of the Interior may accept a partial
    payment of the amount due from any district to the United States,
    providing such acceptance shall not constitute a waiver of the
    balance remaining due nor the interest or penalties, if any,
    accruing upon said balance: Provided, That no contract with an
    irrigation district under this section and sections 512 and 513 of
    this title shall be binding on the United States until the
    proceedings on the part of the district for the authorization of
    the execution of the contract with the United States shall have
    been confirmed by decree of a court of competent jurisdiction, or
    pending appellate action if ground for appeal be laid.

    for lands lying within any irrigation district with which the
    United States shall have contracted, by which the irrigation
    district agrees to make the payment of all charges for the building
    of irrigation works and for operation and maintenance, shall not
    reserve to the United States a lien for the payment of such
    charges; and where such a lien shall have been reserved in any
    patent or water-right certificate issued under said subchapter, the
    Secretary of the Interior is empowered to release such lien in such
    manner and form as may be deemed effective; and the Secretary of
    the Interior is further empowered to release liens in favor of the
    United States contained in water-right applications and to assent
    to the release of liens to secure reimbursement of moneys due to
    the United States pursuant to water-right applications running in
    favor of the water users' association and contained in stock
    subscription contracts to such associations, when the lands covered
    by such liens shall be subject to assessment and levy for the
    collection of all moneys due and to become due to the United States
    by irrigation districts formed pursuant to State law and with which
    the United States shall have entered into contract therefor:
    Provided, That no such lien so reserved to the United States in any
    patent or water-right certificate shall be released until the owner
    of the land covered by the lien shall consent in writing to the
    assessment, levy, and collection by such irrigation district of
    taxes against said land for the payment to the United States of the
    contract obligation: Provided further, That before any lien is
    released under this section the Secretary of the Interior shall
    file a written report finding that the contracting irrigation
    district is legally organized under the laws of the State in which
    its lands are located, with full power to enter into the contract
    and to collect by assessment and levy against the lands of the
    district the amount of the contract obligation.

-STATUTE-
      Whenever in carrying out the provisions of the reclamation law,
    storage or carrying capacity has been or may be provided in excess
    of the requirements of the lands to be irrigated under any project,
    the Secretary of the Interior, preserving a first right to lands
    and entrymen under the project, is authorized, upon such terms as
    he may determine to be just and equitable, to contract for the
    impounding, storage, and carriage of water to an extent not
    exceeding such excess capacity with irrigation systems operating
    under section 641 of this title, and individuals, corporations,
    associations, and irrigation districts organized for or engaged in
    furnishing or in distributing water for irrigation.  Water so
    impounded, stored, or carried under any such contract shall be for
    the purpose of distribution to individual water users by the party
    with whom the contract is made: Provided, however, That water so
    impounded, stored, or carried shall not be used otherwise than as
    prescribed by law as to lands held in private ownership within
    Government reclamation projects.  In fixing the charges under any
    such contract for impounding, storing, or carrying water for any
    irrigation system, corporation, association, district, or
    individual, as herein provided, the Secretary shall take into
    consideration the cost of construction and maintenance of the
    reservoir by which such water is to be impounded or stored and the
    canal by which it is to be carried, and such charges shall be just
    and equitable as to water users under the Government project.  No
    irrigation system, district, association, corporation, or
    individual so contracting shall make any charge for the storage,
    carriage, or delivery of such water in excess of the charge paid to
    the United States except to such extent as may be reasonably
    necessary to cover cost of carriage and delivery of such water
    through their works.
