``SEC. 4. ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION.

    ``In General.--In order to further the purposes of this 
Act, there is hereby authorized to be appropriated $10 million 
under the provisions of section 323 of the FY 1999 Interior 
Appropriations Act (P.L. 105-277) for Clackamas County, Oregon, 
for watershed restoration near the Bull Run Management Unit.''.

                         Purpose of the Measure

    The purpose of S. 2691 is to provide for further 
protections for the watershed of the Little Sandy River as part 
of the Bull Run Watershed Management Unit, near Portland, 
Oregon.

                          Background and Need

    The Little Sandy River lies adjacent to the Bull Run 
Watershed, which is the primary municipal water supply for the 
City of Portland, Oregon. The Bull Run Watershed Management 
Unit was established by Congress in 1977, creating a management 
partnership between the Forest Service and the city of Portland 
for the review of issues which may affect water quality and 
quantity. Additional protection was given to the Bull run 
Watershed by the Northwest Forest Plan in 1993, restricting all 
timber harvests in sensitive areas. Neither of these actions 
extended a satisfactory level of protection to the nearby 
Little Sandy Watershed. The Oregon Resources and Conservation 
Act of 1996 provided temporary protection for the Little Sandy 
Watershed. S. 2691 would expand the boundary of the Bull Run 
Watershed Management Unit to include the southern portion of 
the Little Sandy. This would add approximately 2,900 acres to 
the Bull Run Watershed Management Unit, resulting in a total of 
approximately 98,272 acres permanently protected as watershed 
for the city of Portland.
    Population growth in and around the city of Portland and 
heightened awareness of water quality issues have increased the 
public's interest in the preservation of the Little Sandy 
Watershed. The legislation is needed to expand the size of the 
Bull Run Watershed Management Unit and provide permanent 
protection to the Little Sandy River. In so doing, the city of 
Portland's protected watershed will be increased in size to 
help meet growing demand for drinking water within the city.

                          Legislative History

    S. 2691 was introduced on June 7, 2000 by Senator Wyden and 
referred to the Committee on Energy on Natural Resources. The 
Subcommittee on Forests and Public Land Management held a 
hearing on S. 2691 on July 20, 2000. At the business meeting on 
September 20, 2000, the Committee on Energy and Natural 
Resources ordered S. 2692 reported favorably with an amendment.

            Committee Recommendation and Tabulation of Votes

    The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, in 
open business session on September 20, 2000, by a voice vote of 
a quorum present, recommends that the Senate pass S. 2691 if 
amended as described herein.

                          Committee Amendment

    During the consideration of S. 2691, the Committee adopted 
an amendment offered by Mr. Wyden and Mr. Smith which added two 
sections to the bill.
    The first of these, section 3, requires the Secretaries of 
Agriculture and Interior to complete an administrative land 
reclassification such that Oregon and California Railroad lands 
(O&C; lands) that are within the affected area would become 
public domain lands and other public domain lands would become 
O&C; lands for purposes of distribution of O&C; receipts.
    The second, section 4, authorizes funds for watershed 
restoration activities near the Bull Run Management Unit.

                      Section-by-Section Analysis

    Section 1 amends Public Law 95-200 (16 U.S.C. 482b note) by 
striking section 1 and inserting new text that includes an 
additional portion of the Little Sandy River watershed in the 
Bull Run Watershed Management Unit of Oregon, including 
appropriate reference to a map depicting the new boundary, as 
well as conforming and technical amendments.
    Section 2 amends Public Law 95-200 (16 U.S.C. 482b note) by 
striking paragraph (1) of section 2(b) and inserts new text to 
prohibit harvesting of trees in the unit as depicted in section 
1. The section also makes conforming and technical amendments 
to the OregonResource Conservation Act of 1996 and the Omnibus 
Parks and Public Lands Management Act of 1996. The section also 
clarifies that there is no effect on any water rights by the Act.
    Section 3 requires the Secretaries of Agriculture and 
Interior to complete an administrative land reclassification 
such that Oregon and California Railroad lands (O&C; lands) that 
are within the affective area would become public domain lands 
and other public domain lands would become O&C; lands for 
purposes of distribution of O&C; receipts.
    Section 4 authorizes funds for watershed restoration 
activities near the Bull Run Management Unit.

                    Cost and Budgetary Consideration

    The Congressional Budget Office estimate of the costs of 
this measure has been requested but was not available at the 
time the report was filed. When the report is available, the 
Chairman will request it be printed in the Congressional Record 
for the advice of the Senate.

                      Regulatory Impact Evaluation

    In compliance with paragraph 12 of rule XXVI of the 
Standing Rules of the Senate, change in existing law made by 
bill S. 2691, as ordered reported, are shown as follows:
    The bill is not a regulatory measure in the sense of 
imposing government-established standards or significant 
economic responsibilities on private individuals and 
businesses.
    No personal information would be collected in administering 
the program. Therefore, there would be no impact on personal 
privacy.
    Little, if any, additional paperwork would result from the 
enactment of S. 2691, as ordered reported.

                        Executive Communications

    On September 20, 2000, the Committee on Energy and Natural 
Resources requested legislative reports from the Department of 
Interior and the Office of management and Budget setting forth 
executive views on the bill. These reports had not been 
received at the time the report on S. 2691 was filed. When the 
reports become available, the Chairman will request that they 
be printed in the Congressional Record for the advice of the 
Senate.
    The testimony provided by the Department of Agriculture at 
the Subcommittee hearing follows:

   Statement of Paul Brouha, Associate Deputy Chief, Forest Service, 
                       Department of Agriculture

    Mr. Chairman and Members of the Subcommittee, thank you for 
the opportunity to discuss the Administration's views 
concerning S. 2691, a bill to provide further protection for 
the watershed of the Little Sandy River as part of the Bull Run 
Watershed Management Unit, Oregon. I am Paul Brouha Associate 
Deputy Chief of the Forest Service.
    S. 2691, if enacted, would add approximately 2,900 acres to 
the Bull run Watershed Management Unit. If enacted, timber 
harvest activities and general public access into this 
additional portion of the Little Sandy River watershed would be 
prohibited. The Administration does not feel this additional 
protection for the Little Sandy River watershed is warranted 
and, therefore, does not support this bill.
    The majority of the Little Sandy River watershed is already 
within the Bull Run Watershed Management Unit. The 
Administration believes that the 1994 northwest forest plan 
amendments (NWFP) provide sufficient protection for the health 
of the Little Sandy River watershed and preservation of future 
options. Specifically, the Little Sandy River watershed is 
designated a Tier 2 Key watershed in the NWFP. This designation 
emphasizes high water quality, as well as fish and watershed 
restoration. The NWFP, with its extensive system of late-
successional and riparian reserves, watershed restoration, and 
other components of the aquatic conservation strategy, proves 
for a very high level of water quality protection.
    The NWFP provides for a scientifically based, ecosystem 
approach for management of federal lands. It is based on 
landscape-level scientific analysis, and considers the 
interrelationships of all the forest's resources in its 
implementation. The NWFP is designed to aid in the recovery of 
species listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and is an 
integral part of recovery plans for all listed species, 
including the Northern Spotted Owl and the Lower Columbia River 
winter steelhead and Chinook salmon, fish stocks in the Sandy 
River Basin that are currently listed under the ESA. Portland 
General Electric has already committed to providing fish 
passage around their facility and restoring anadromous fish 
habitat in the Little Sandy. National Marine Fisheries Service 
has accepted the NWFP as an integral part of the recovery plan 
for the ESA listed fish in the Sandy River Basin.
    The Point of diversion for Portland's Bureau of Water Works 
is above the confluence of the Little Sandy and Bull Run 
Rivers. A water supply option study conducted by the City of 
Portland in 1992 dismissed the option of developing the Little 
Sandy as a municipal water source because of issues related to 
water rights, cost of development, limited capacity, and 
impacts to a variety of resources. A Regional Water Supply Plan 
completed in 1996 by 27 water providers also dismissed the 
option of the Little Sandy Basin as a water supply source at 
the time but advocated protection. Therefore, it is unlikely 
that the water of the Little Sandy will ever be used as a 
municipal water source because of other available sources, the 
limited amount of water in the Little Sandy, the uncertainty of 
water rights, and the high costs of development. In addition, 
if municipal water rights were ever obtained for the Little 
Sandy River, the requirement under ESA to maintain instream 
water flows for the recovery of federally listed fish would 
restrict water depletion even for municipal use.
    The Oregon Resources Conservation Act of 1996 (Division B 
of P.L. 104-208) directed the Secretary of Agriculture to study 
the portion of the Little Sandy River watershed within the Bull 
Run Watershed Management Unit. The Forest Service in 
consultation with the City of Portland, a private citizen-based 
Provincial Advisory Committee, and other interested parties, 
completed the study. It was submitted on June 15, 1998, by the 
Secretary to the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, 
and Forestry, the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural 
Resources, the House Committee on Resources and the House 
Committee on Agriculture. The study recommended that the area 
continue to be managed under the direction of the NWFP. The 
reasons cited by the study are as follows:
           The Little Sandy River has not been and 
        currently is not planned to be used to provide drinking 
        water; and
           The waters of the Little Sandy River may be 
        needed to provide for the needs of fish species being 
        considered for listing under the ESA.
    Since that time, both Chinook salmon and winter steelhead 
in the Sandy River Basin were listed under the ESA.
    There are many environmental safeguards already in place 
for the Little Sandy River and other sensitive watersheds in 
the Pacific Northwest. For these reasons we feel that S. 1691 
is unnecessary.
    This concludes my testimony. I would be happy to answer any 
questions that you may have.
