SEC. 2032. PROJECT PLANNING.

  (a) Objectives.--
          (1) Flood control, navigation, and hurricane and storm damage 
        reduction projects.--The Federal objective of any study of the 
        feasibility of a water resources project carried out by the 
        Secretary for flood damage reduction, navigation, or hurricane 
        and storm damage reduction shall be to maximize the net 
        national economic development benefits associated with the 
        project, consistent with protecting the Nation's environment.
          (2) Ecosystem restoration projects.--The Federal objective of 
        any study of the feasibility of a water resources project for 
        ecosystem restoration carried out by the Secretary shall be to 
        maximize the net national ecosystem restoration benefits 
        associated with the project, consistent with national economic 
        development.
          (3) Projects with multiple purposes.--In the case of a study 
        that includes multiple project purposes, the primary and other 
        project purposes shall be evaluated, based on the relevant 
        Federal objective identified under paragraphs (1) and (2).
          (4) Selection of project alternatives.--
                  (A) In general.--Notwithstanding the Federal 
                objectives identified in this subsection, the Secretary 
                may select a project alternative that does not maximize 
                net benefits if there is an overriding reason based 
                upon other Federal, State, local, or international 
                concerns.
                  (B) Flood damage reduction, navigation, and hurricane 
                storm damage reduction projects.--With respect to a 
                water resources project described in paragraph (1), an 
                overriding reason for selecting a plan other than the 
                plan that maximizes national economic development 
                benefits may be if the Secretary determines, and the 
                non-Federal interest concurs, that an alternative plan 
                is feasible and achieves the project purposes while 
                providing greater ecosystem restoration benefits.
                  (C) Ecosystem restoration projects.--With respect to 
                a water resources project described in paragraph (2), 
                an overriding reason for selecting a plan other than 
                the plan that maximizes national ecosystem restoration 
                benefits may be if the Secretary determines, and the 
                non-Federal interest concurs, that an alternative is 
                feasible and achieves the project purpose while 
                providing greater economic development benefits.
  (b) Identifying Additional Benefits and Projects.--
          (1) Primarily economic benefits.--In conducting a study of 
        the feasibility of a project where the primary benefits are 
        expected to be economic, the Secretary may identify ecosystem 
        restoration benefits that may be achieved in the study area 
        and, after obtaining the participation of a non-Federal 
        interest, may study and recommend construction of a separate 
        project or separable project element to achieve those benefits.
          (2) Primarily ecosystem restoration benefits.--In conducting 
        a study of the feasibility of a project where the primary 
        benefits are expected to be associated with ecosystem 
        restoration, the Secretary may identify economic benefits that 
        may be achieved in the study area and, after obtaining the 
        participation of a non-Federal interest, may study and 
        recommend construction of a separate project or separable 
        project element to achieve those benefits.
          (3) Rules applicable to identified separate projects and 
        elements.--Any separate project or separable element identified 
        under paragraph (1) or (2) and recommended for construction 
        shall not be considered integral to the underlying project 
        under study and, if authorized, shall be subject to a separate 
        partnership agreement, unless a non-Federal interest agrees to 
        share in the cost of both projects or separable elements.
  (c) Calculation of Benefits and Costs for Flood Damage Reduction 
Projects.--A feasibility study for a project for flood damage reduction 
shall include, as part of the calculation of benefits and costs--
          (1) a calculation of the residual risk of flooding following 
        completion of the proposed project;
          (2) a calculation of any upstream or downstream impacts of 
        the proposed project; and
          (3) calculations to ensure that the benefits and costs 
        associated with structural and nonstructural alternatives are 
        evaluated in an equitable manner.

SEC. 2033. INDEPENDENT PEER REVIEW.

                         Purpose of Legislation

    The Water Resources Development Act of 2003 includes 
project authorizations, modifications, deauthorizations, 
studies, and policy initiatives for the Army Corps of 
Engineers' Civil Works Program--the nation's largest water 
resources program. Throughout its five titles, the bill 
authorizes and directs the Corps to carry out various studies, 
projects, and programs relating to navigation, flood damage 
reduction, shoreline protection, dam safety, water supply, 
recreation, environmental restoration and protection.

                  Background and Need for Legislation

    The Water Resources Development Act of 2003 demonstrates 
the continuing commitment of the Committee on Transportation 
and Infrastructure to the Nation's water resources 
infrastructure, and a regular authorization schedule for the 
Civil Works Program of the Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), 
which was instituted by the Water Resources Development Act of 
1986. The Committee believes that passage of the Water 
Resources Development Act of 2003 is vitally important to 
fulfill commitments to non-Federal sponsors, to be responsive 
to new and emerging water resources needs, and to fine-tune the 
Corps' missions and responsibilities.

Value of the Civil Works Program

    The Committee recognizes the value of the Corps and the 
Corps' Civil Works missions to the Nation and the critical 
importance of maintaining these vital contributions. Over the 
years, the Corps has maintained flexibility in its Civil Works 
missions to meet the changing needs of the Nation. The Corps 
has an impressive history of helping to meet the Nation's water 
resources needs. For over 175 years, the Corps has supported 
navigation needs by maintaining and improving the Nation's 
waterways in 41 States. The Corps also maintains 300 commercial 
harbors, through which pass over 2 billion tons of cargo a 
year, and with more than 13 million American jobs dependent on 
our import and export trade, these ports are vital to our 
economic security. The ports and waterways maintained by the 
Corps also play a vital role in national defense.
    Corps flood damage reduction efforts range from small, 
local protection projects (levees or non-structural flood 
damage reduction measures) to major dams. Today, most Corps 
constructed flood protection projects are owned by sponsoring 
cities, towns, and agricultural districts, but the Corps 
continues to maintain and operate 383 dams and reservoirs for 
flood damage reduction. During the 10 years from 1991 through 
2000 the United States suffered $45 billion in property damage 
from floods. During that same period, however, Corps flood 
damage reduction measures prevented more than $208 billion in 
damage--82% of the damage that would have occurred if the 
protection was absent.
    Legislation passed in 1990 established environmental 
protection as one of the primary missions of the Corps--along 
with navigation and flood damage reduction. Since that time, 
ecosystem restoration projects have grown increasingly popular 
throughout the country, resulting in over $1.3 billion in 
Federal support for environmental activities. The Corps has 
provided leadership on large-scale ecosystem restoration 
projects, including restoring the hydrologic regime for the 
Everglades in Florida and addressing wetland losses of 
catastrophic proportion in Coastal Louisiana. In addition, the 
Corps carries out environmental and natural resource management 
programs at its projects, manages thousands of square miles of 
forest and wildlife habitat, monitors water quality at its 
dams, and in some cases restores the environment at projects 
built in earlier days.
    As the Corps program continues to evolve in service to the 
Nation, the Committee notes with interest the efforts of the 
Chief of Engineers to encourage a more holistic approach to 
water resources management. An increased emphasis on watershed 
and basin-wide planning, conducted in conjunction with State 
and local governments and non-public stakeholders, can lead to 
a more sustainable use of water resources that integrates water 
development, protection, and restoration. The Corps can play a 
particularly important role in facilitating planning when the 
issues affecting water resources concern multiple 
jurisdictions. The Corps is encouraged to pursue efforts to 
improve coordination and cooperation in the development of 
recommended approaches to address water resources problems and 
formulating plans to solve these problems.

Corps of Engineers Planning Process

    In recent years, there has been some controversy regarding 
the planning process used by the Corps of Engineers to develop 
water resources projects. The Civil Works program of the Corps 
of Engineers is an approximately $4.5 billion annual program. 
Of that amount, between $135 and $145 million is spent annually 
to study water resources needs, determine if there is a Federal 
interest in meeting those needs, and develop recommendations 
for water resources projects that are technically sound, 
environmentally acceptable, and economically justified.
    For certain small projects, Congress has authorized the 
Corps to participate in the development and construction under 
continuing authorities. The Federal participation in these 
small projects is limited to between $500,000 and $7 million 
per project, depending on the project type. For all other 
projects, the Corps must first receive authorization from 
Congress to proceed with a study, either by statute or, if the 
Corps previously has conducted a study in the same geographic 
area, in the form of a Committee resolution.
    Once authorized, a water resources study begins with a 
reconnaissance study. The reconnaissance phase is a relatively 
quick examination of the problem (generally costing no more 
than $100,000) during which the Corps of Engineers determines 
if there is a Federal interest and a potentially feasible 
project. Currently, there are 40 ongoing reconnaissance 
studies. If, based on the reconnaissance study, the Corps 
determines there is a potentially feasible water resources 
project, the Corps may seek the participation of a non-Federal 
interest willing to share in 50 percent of the study costs (for 
studies for projects other than inland navigation) and proceed 
to a full feasibility study. A feasibilitystudy is generally 
expected to take about 2 years. However, due to the complexity of the 
issues, controversy over proposed solutions, and budget constraints, 
feasibility studies often take longer than 2 years and in rare cases 
may take in excess of 15 years. Currently, there are 210 ongoing 
feasibility studies.
    To ensure that a project is technically sound, 
environmentally acceptable, and economically justified, the 
Corps must conduct a study in accordance with applicable laws, 
regulations, and policy, including the 1983 Principles and 
Guidelines issued by the Water Resources Council, Engineering 
Regulations issued by the Corps of Engineers (and most recently 
comprehensively revised in 1999), and other guidance 
periodically issued by the Chief of Engineers. Studies that 
result in a report of the Chief of Engineers recommending a 
water resources project are submitted to Congress for 
authorization. Other than projects constructed under continuing 
authorities, the Corps may not proceed to construction of a 
project until it is specifically authorized.
    All Corps of Engineers projects manage water resources in 
some fashion. In many cases, there may be competing demands on 
those water resources, leading to controversy and even 
opposition to a proposed project by some constituencies. In 
some cases, project opponents have carried out or obtained a 
careful review of a study for a Corps project and have 
uncovered examples of projects that do not comply with 
applicable guidance. In particular, there have been three 
projects where close scrutiny revealed that the projected 
benefits of the project might not exceed the projected costs, 
notwithstanding the requirement that most water resources 
projects be economically justified. (The requirement for 
economic justification does not apply to environmental 
projects; under the Water Resources Development Act of 1990, 
the benefits of environmental projects are deemed to be equal 
to their costs).
    Two of these three projects, the Chesapeake and Delaware 
Canal and the Delaware River Deepening, were already authorized 
by Congress at the time questions were raised about the project 
economics. In the case of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, 
the project has been suspended. In the case of the Delaware 
River Deepening, notwithstanding mathematical errors made by 
the Corps in its original economic analysis, further analysis 
has demonstrated that the project remains economically 
justified and the project is continuing. In the case of the 
third project, the Upper Mississippi River Locks and Dams, 
questions were raised regarding the models to be used to 
analyze projected demand for barge traffic on the river before 
the study had been completed. The Corps of Engineers is 
continuing with this ongoing study and expects to make 
recommendations to Congress next year that will be economically 
justified.
    The problems with the economic analyses of these three 
projects has led to a call for the improvement of the Corps' 
process for developing water resources projects. The Committee 
believes that the Corps of Engineers employs experts in their 
fields who provide a tremendous service to the Nation. The 
Committee also holds these professionals to the highest 
standards and expects all work products generated by the Corps 
of Engineers to be able to withstand any level of scrutiny. 
Accordingly, this bill provides the Chief of Engineers with 
tools to ensure that project studies are carried out using high 
quality methods, models, and analyses. At the same time, the 
Committee also recognizes that many disputes over water 
resources projects are policy disputes. Accordingly, the bill 
also ensures that changes to the project planning process will 
not lead to delays in project delivery and provides the Chief 
of Engineers with tools to resolve policy disputes and minimize 
delays.

                   TITLE I--WATER RESOURCES PROJECTS

Section 1001. Project authorizations

    This section authorizes projects for water resources 
development and conservation to be carried out substantially in 
accordance with the reports of the Chief of Engineers cited for 
each project, except as otherwise provided.
    (1) American River Watershed, California.--
    The American River watershed lies northeast of Sacramento. 
It covers approximately 2,100 square miles and includes 
portions of Placer, El Dorado, and Sacramento Counties. Runoff 
from the American River drainage basin flows through Folsom 
Reservoir and passes through Sacramento in a channel controlled 
by a system of levees. The Folsom Dam and Reservoir are located 
about 29 miles upstream of Sacramento and are part of the 
Federal Central Valley Project (CVP), one of California's major 
water delivery systems.
    Problems and Opportunities Identified in Study: Numerous 
floods, most notably in 1986 and 1997, underscore the continued 
high risk of catastrophic flooding in Sacramento. Currently, 
Sacramento has a 1-in-85 chance of flooding in any year. In 
1996 and 1999, Congress authorized improvements to the levees 
on the American River and modifications to the Folsom Dam to 
reduce this flood risk. Once these projects are completed, the 
risk of flooding will decrease to about a 1-in-164 chance in 
any one year.Even with improvements already authorized, flood 
protection will fall short of the community goal of reducing the risk 
of flooding to a 1-in-200 chance of catastrophic flooding in a given 
year.
    The combination of mining, development, flood plain 
constrictions (including bridges, levees, diversions, and the 
parkway system), dam construction, and flow modifications over 
the past 150 years has altered the physical processes that 
sustain the Lower American River ecosystem and have thereby 
contributed to its degradation. These changes will likely 
continue, further reducing riparian, wildlife, and related 
habitat values along the lower river. In addition, the 
construction of Folsom Dam has cut off most of the spawning 
areas historically used by the river's migratory steelhead 
trout and salmon. There are opportunities to restore lost 
resources through modification and replanting of remnant 
floodplain terraces. Lower American River in-stream habitat 
could be altered to improve fish spawning and rearing 
conditions, thus increasing the viability of salmon and 
steelhead populations.
    Alternative Plans Considered: Eight primary flood damage 
reduction alternatives were evaluated, not including the no-
action alternative. Four different downstream levee 
modifications were evaluated to address increases in objective 
releases from Folsom Dam and three Folsom Dam enlargement 
alternatives were evaluated to address increases in flood 
storage capacity at Folsom Dam. One alternative that addressed 
increased flood damage reduction through a new upstream 
detention dam was included for informational purposes.
    The study also considered 26 measures in formulating 
ecosystem restoration alternatives for the lower American 
River. From these measures, five alternatives were evaluated.
    Description of Recommended Plan: The recommended plan 
consists of raising the height of Folsom Dam by 7 feet. The 
raise would include a combination of raising the concrete 
monolith and embankments and adding a 3.5-foot parapet wall, 
replacing the spillway radial gates, modifying the spillway 
bridge piers, and replacing the spillway bridge. With these 
modifications the top-of-flood-pool elevation at Folsom 
Reservoir would be increased from an elevation of 474 to 482 
feet above mean sea level and flood control storage capacity 
would be increased by 95,000 acre-feet. Significant work at 
Folsom Dam to address dam safety is avoided by also including 
modifications to the spillway at L. L. Anderson Dam. The L. L. 
Anderson Dam is owned by Placer County Water Agency and 
controls French Meadows Reservoir that is located on the Middle 
Fork of the American River. By including measures to widen the 
L. L. Anderson Dam spillway, the probable maximum flood inflows 
to Folsom Dam would be lowered, thereby avoiding more costly 
dam safety work at Folsom Dam. The recommended flood damage 
reduction improvements would remedy the existing safety 
deficiency at Folsom Dam and reduce the annual probability of 
flooding in Sacramento from an estimated 1-in-164 chance to a 
1-in-213 chance in any year.
    The recommended plan also includes ecosystem restoration 
components that would provide for approximately 620 acres of 
wildlife habitat including wetlands, riparian, and native 
vegetation at the Woodlake and Bushy Lake sites along the lower 
American River parkway. In addition, temperature control 
shutters for the inlets to the Folsom Dam penstocks would be 
mechanized to better regulate the American River water 
temperature to increase native salmon and steelhead populations 
downstream of the dam.
    Physical Data on Project Features:
    (a) Raise Folsom Dam.
    (1) Replace Existing Spillway Gates. All eight spillway 
radial gates at Folsom Dam would be replaced with larger gates. 
The new gates would be approximately 66 feet high, 16 feet 
taller than the gates under the without-project condition. The 
top-of-gate elevation would be 484 feet.
    (2) Modify Spillway Bridge Piers. The piers would be raised 
and extended downstream to anchor the new larger radial gates. 
Additionally, the piers would be strengthened by installing 
post-tensioned tendons to anchor the piers to the mass concrete 
of the overflow section.
    (3) Replace Spillway Bridge. The existing eight-span 
spillway bridge would require replacement.
    (4) Raise Concrete Dam. The concrete portions of Folsom Dam 
including the spillway area would be raised to accommodate the 
higher flood control pool. The raise would be accomplished 
through a combination of raising the dam crest and spillway 
bridge deck, and constructing a short crest/parapet wall. The 
new top-of-dam elevation in the concrete section would be 487.5 
feet (top of crest/parapet wall), and the top of the roadway 
and bridge deck would be 487.0 feet elevation.
    (5) Extend Stilling Basin. Extension of the spillway 
stilling basin and side walls by approximately 60 feet is 
required to ensure proper stilling basin function and adequate 
energy dissipation of the larger flows and higher heads of the 
new design flood and probable maximum flood.
    (6) Construct Temporary Construction Bridge. A temporary 
construction bridge approximately \1/4\ mile in length may be 
constructed downstream of the left wing dam to mitigate short-
term traffic effects during construction of the dam 
modifications. The bridge would be aligned to provide an 
alternate route of transportation across the American River to 
ensure that no conflicts occur with existing Folsom Dam 
operations. The Secretary is authorized to construct a 
permanent bridge, in lieu of a temporary construction bridge, 
if the additional costs of such a bridge, in excess of the $36 
million provided in the recommended plan for the temporary 
construction bridge, are provided by other entities, including 
State and local governments and other Federal agencies.
    (7) Widen L. L. Anderson Dam Spillway. L. L. Anderson Dam 
(French Meadows Reservoir) spillway would be widened so that 
Folsom Dam would safely pass the probable maximum flood.
    (8) Mitigation. Mitigation for project construction 
includes approximately 82.6 acres of oak woodland/blue oak-gray 
pine woodland, 10.3 acres of riparian woodland and 0.3 acre of 
seasonal wetland habitat. In addition, an adaptive management 
plan would be implemented by the non-Federal sponsor to 
mitigate unforeseen effects on vegetation and wildlife due to 
the enlarged flood pool from 474 to 482 feet elevation.
    (b) Ecosystem Restoration.
    (1) Woodlake. The restoration plan at this 283-acre site 
includes the eradication of nonnative invasive plant species; 
modification of flood plain terraces to increase frequency of 
natural flooding; seeding to reestablish native grasslands; and 
grading to appropriate flood plain elevations and planting 
reconstructed areas with riparian forest oak woodland, and oak 
savanna plant species.
    (2) Bushy Lake Restoration Site. The 347-acre Bushy Lake 
site is upstream from Woodlake. The conceptual restoration plan 
includes the eradication of nonnative invasive plant species 
and the construction of a pump and delivery system and 
meandering channel to carry local drainage water to Bushy Lake. 
The new channels would be planted with emergent wetland plant 
species. Restoration also includes the creation of an ephemeral 
channel to convey flows from the lake to the river; terracing 
steep banks; and planting riparian forest, oak woodland, and 
oak savanna plant species on newly graded site areas.
    (3) Folsom Dam Temperature Shutter Mechanization. Folsom 
Dam restricts salmon and steelhead life cycles to the 23-mile 
Lower American River precluding the fish from migrating to 
their upstream natal spawning grounds. Cold water is necessary 
to sustain existing spawning and rearing salmon and steelhead 
populations below the dam. To manage Lower American River water 
temperature, cold water from varying depths in Folsom Lake is 
withdrawn via shutters located at different elevations on the 
penstock inlet. The restoration feature would modify and 
automate the temperature shutters to allow for the flexibility 
and timeliness needed to optimize management of the coldwater 
pool to sustain the downstream fishery.
    Views of States, Non-Federal Interests and Other Countries: 
The State of California and the Sacramento Area Flood Control 
Agency (SAFCA) both support a high level of flood protection 
for Sacramento and support improvement of the American River 
ecosystem. They are willing to cost share and perform other 
sponsor duties.
    Views of Federal and Regional Agencies: Agencies commenting 
on the draft report either support or are neutral to the 
proposed project. In its Coordination Act Report, the U.S. Fish 
and Wildlife Service has provided recommendations on avoidance 
of, and compensation for, environmental impacts directly 
related to raising Folsom Dam. The Service is neutral towards 
the Folsom Dam raise plan and supports the Woodlake, Bushy 
Lake, and Folsom Dam temperature shutter modification plans.

    Description of Non-Federal Implementation Costs: For the 
flood damage reduction features the non-Federal sponsors will 
provide 5 percent of the initial construction cost in cash 
during construction, and all required lands, easements, rights-
of-way, relocations, and disposal areas. Additionally, the non-
Federal sponsor will provide any additional cash amount 
required to produce a total non-Federal contribution of at 
least 35 percent of the total flood damage reduction project 
cost. The Reclamation Board and SAFCA are the prospective non-
Federal sponsors for the proposed flood damage reduction 
project features. For the flood damage reduction project 
features, the Federal share of project costs would be about 
$86,900,000 and the non-Federal share would be about 
$46,200,000. For the environmental restoration features the 
non-Federal sponsor will provide 35 percent of the initial 
construction cost allocated to these features. Included in this 
35 percent are all required lands, easements, rights-of-way, 
relocations, and disposal areas. Additionally, the non-Federal 
sponsor will provide any additional cash amount required to 
produce a total non-Federal contribution of at least 35 percent 
of the total environmental restoration project cost. SAFCA is 
the prospective non-Federal sponsor for the proposed 
environmental restoration project features. For the 
environmental restoration project features, the Federal share 
of project costs would be about $18,400,000 and the non-Federal 
share would be about $9,900,000. All dam safety costs have been 
allocated to the Bureau of Reclamation, although it is 
acknowledged that the non-Federal sponsor for the original 
Folsom Dam project may be required to share in 15 percent of 
the dam safety costs in accordance with the cost sharing in 
effect at the time of initial construction of the project.

    Description of Non-Federal O&M; Cost: Operation and 
maintenance costs are for the additional amount above the 
existing, without-project O&M; cost. Operation, maintenance, 
repair, replacement, and rehabilitation (OMRR&R;) costs of 
improvement features would normally be the responsibility of 
the non-Federal sponsor. However, since Folsom Dam is owned and 
operated by the Federal government, the OMRR&R; would continue 
to be performed by the Bureau of Reclamation, but a cost-
sharing agreement would be negotiated between the non-Federal 
sponsors and Bureau of Reclamation to pay the portion of the 
OMRR&R; costs related to the new flood control features. For the 
ecosystem restoration components of the selected plan, OMRR&R; 
of the project will be the responsibility of the non-Federal 
sponsor, SAFCA. Estimated annual OMRR&R; cost for ecosystem 
restoration include activities to operate and maintain the 
mechanized temperature control shutters on Folsom Dam in 
addition to landscape maintenance activities on the Bushy Lake 
and Woodlake sites that include the application of herbicides 
and excavation of seed banks to eradicate non-native invasive 
plant species, the replacement of wetland and riparian plant 
species during the period of plant community establishment, and 
other adaptive management activities that may be deemed 
necessary to ensure the successful restoration of riverine 
habitat on these two sites.

    NED plan recommended--No. It was determined that the 
545,000 acre-foot upstream detention, flood control-only dam 
originally studied in the 1991 American River Watershed 
feasibility report would continue to provide greater net 
National Economic Development (NED) benefits than the 
recommended plan. The first cost of the NED plan would be about 
$777 million. The average annual cost would be $64.1 million 
and the average annual flood damage reduction benefits would be 
approximately $71 million. Because an upstream detention dam 
would reduce flood storage requirements at Folsom Dam, this 
alternative would also generate substantial water resource-
related benefits. These additional benefits were estimated at 
$12 million in the 1996 American River Supplemental Information 
Report. Although this estimate has not been updated, it is 
likely that the net benefits of an upstream detention dam would 
exceed those of any other alternative presented and thus would 
remain the NED Plan. Consequently, the 545,000 acre-foot 
upstream detention flood-control-only dam was identified as the 
NED plan. However, the non-Federal sponsors have selected the 
recommended plan as their preferred alternative since the 
recommended plan is smaller and less comprehensive, is of 
lesser cost than the NED Plan, and provides the highest net 
flood damage reduction benefits compared to all Folsom Dam 
enlargement and downstream levee modification alternatives 
considered.
    Direct Beneficiaries: Immediate beneficiaries include the 
City and County of Sacramento and commercial, public, 
industrial, and residential development within the flood plain 
and surrounding urbanized areas that rely upon the public 
facilities in the study area. The larger Sacramento community 
is a beneficiary of more viable fish and wildlife habitat 
within the metropolitan area.
    Relationship to Other Plans: The recommended plan is 
compatible with other water resources development projects in 
the study area. These include the North Area Local Project, 
Common Features project, Folsom Dam Modifications project, and 
recently authorized Lower American River flood control 
improvements.
    (a) Rebuilding or replacing the Folsom Dam spillway bridge 
would negate the need for a planned reconstruction or major 
overhaul of the bridge by the Bureau. Also, construction of 
new, larger spillway gates would negate the need for the 
currently on-going Folsom modifications project to replace 
gates. This would result in a cost savings to the Federal 
project of about $38 million.
    (b) Section 101 of the Water Resources Development Act of 
1999 also directed that the Folsom Dam Flood Management Plan be 
updated to take advantage of improved weather forecasting. 
Three possible scenarios were developed to illustrate the 
possible impacts of the addition of prerelease to the without-
project condition damages. The first scenario is that advance 
release would not occur, possibly because of currently 
unanticipated problems. The second or most likely scenario 
anticipates that advance release could create 100,000 acre-feet 
of additional flood space. The third scenario of advance 
release could create 140,000 acre-feet of additional flood 
space.

    (2) Pine Flat Dam and Reservoir, California.--
    Location of Study Area: The project area is located at Pine 
Flat Dam on the Kings River in central California, 25 miles 
east of Fresno.
    Problems and Opportunities Identified in Study: The 
construction of Pine Flat Dam on the Kings River has altered 
the natural hydraulics and temperatures of the river, affected 
the vegetation, restricted native coldwater fish movements, 
which resulted in the decline of the fishery, affected fish and 
wildlife resources and aquatic wetland habitats, and further 
accelerated the decline of the riverine ecosystem habitat.
    Due to the design and operation of Pine Flat Dam, the 
reservoir can experience a significant increase in water 
temperature at certain times of the year. When there is 
adequate water, water temperatures are well within the optimal 
range for the survival of both coldwater and warmwater fish. In 
low-water years, however, the availability of coldwater habitat 
for native fisheries in the reservoir and lower Kings River can 
decrease dramatically.
    Water release from Pine Flat Lake influence the fishery 
downstream in the lower Kings River. During dry and below 
average precipitation years, with below average carryover 
storage, the coldwater reserves may be depleted from the 
reservoir by late summer and early fall, causing water 
temperatures in the reservoir and lower Kings River to exceed 
levels acceptable for coldwater fish growth and survival. In 
addition, low instream flows can adversely affect food supply, 
spatial habitat, and access to shaded riverine aquatic (SRA) 
habitat, and provide favorable habitat for nonnative warmwater 
fishery growth, which further declines the native coldwater 
fishery survival rate. Finally, various land use activities 
have resulted in some loss of riparian, SRA, and oak-woodland 
habitat, which has depleted the food source to the associated 
wildlife and special-status species along the river.
    Alternative Plans Considered: The eight alternative plans 
included: (1) No action; (2) constructing a multilevel intake 
structure on the upstream face of the dam to manage the 
temperature of downstream water releases to preserve the 
coldwater in the reservoir and promote downstream water 
temperatures suitable to sustain the native coldwater fishery 
throughout the year; (3) reestablishing historic floodplain 
riparian, SRA, and wildlife habitat at Byrd Slough along the 
Kings River immediately south of the Friant-Kern Canal siphon; 
and (4) a combination of alternatives 2 and 3.
    Description of Recommended Plan: The recommended plan, 
alternative 4, will include a multilevel intake structure on 
the upstream face of Pine Flat Dam. This structure would allow 
for temperature-controlled releases through the power plant at 
the base of the dam. The plan would also include the 
restoration of 143.5 acres of historic floodplain, shaded 
riverine aquatic habitat, and wildlife habitat at Byrd Slough 
along the Kings River.
    Physical Data on Project Features: (a) Multilevel Intake 
Structure: A multilevel intake structure would be constructed 
on the upstream face of Pine Flat Dam. This multilevel intake 
structure would consist of three separate steel (space frame) 
structures which extend from elevation 953.46 feet, mean sea 
level (msl), downward to elevation 616.5 feet, msl. The three 
separate steel structures would fit over the three existing 
power penstock intakes. Each of the three structures would have 
three port openings and gates. There would be a hoist and cable 
unit (including a motor) for each of the nine openings. The 
three port openings would be 25 feet high and 42 feet wide and 
would be staggered at seven different elevations that would 
permit selective withdrawal of water from a wide range of 
levels in the reservoir.
    Steel gates measuring 27 feet high by 44 feet wide would be 
constructed to close off each of the new port openings. One 
gate on all three of the structures would be at the same 
elevation, and two gates on each of the structures would be at 
different elevations. The gates would open in the downward 
direction and would sit in a structural channel when completely 
open. This design would take the gate loadings off the hoist 
cable. Cladding would be placed on the space frame to enclose 
each of the structures. Steel plates would be put on the bottom 
of each of the space frame structures to prevent water from 
leaking into each structure. A trash rack would be placed on 
the front face of each of the structures to prevent any large 
debris from entering the port openings and to protect the 
structure.
    (b) Byrd Slough Habitat Restoration: About 143.5 acres of 
Fresno County land downstream of the dam and immediately south 
of the Friant-Kern Canal siphon would be acquired by 
conservation easement to reestablish riparian and SRA habitat 
for fish and wildlife along the Kings River. The restoration 
work would involve repairing perimeter fences to exclude cattle 
from the restoration area, installing revegetation signs at the 
fishing access parking area, planting restoration species (250 
plants per acre), designing an irrigation system to the planted 
areas, and installing wildlife habitat enhancement structures. 
In order of priority, these structures could include brush 
piles, bluebird boxes, bat boxes, raptor perches, wood duck 
boxes, and/or songbird perches.
    Views of States, Non-Federal Interests and Other Countries: 
The sponsor, Kings River Conservation District, has continued 
to express support for the project, understands the cost 
sharing requirements during preconstruction engineering and 
design and is prepared to execute a cost sharing agreement upon 
completion of the feasibility study.
    Views of Federal and Regional Agencies: The Kings River 
Conservation District strongly supports the recommended multi-
level intake structure and the Byrd Slough Habitat Restoration 
plan. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service supports the 
recommended plan as indicated in its findings in the 
Coordination Act Report. EPA is not adverse to the project as 
stated in their review of the draft report.
    Status of NEPA Document: The final Environmental Impact 
Statement and the Environmental Impact Report were completed 
December 2001.
    Estimated Implementation Costs: (October 2002 price levels)

                    ____________________________________________________
      Total.............................................         $58,000

    Description of Non-Federal O&M; Costs: The operation, 
maintenance, repair, replacement, and rehabilitation costs for 
the multilevel intake structure consist of routine maintenance 
and replacement of parts over the life of the project. The 
OMRR&R; costs for the Byrd Slough Habitat area include 
monitoring and periodic maintenance of fencing.
    Estimated Effects: Construction of the multi-level intake 
structure would adversely affect about 2.07 acres of 
agricultural land/chenopod scrub vegetation at the staging 
area. These effects would be temporary (approximately 24 
months). Wildlife may experience temporary disturbance and/or 
displacement due to construction noise and activity. The 
operation and maintenance of the multi-level structure would 
not adversely affect vegetation or wildlife. The Friant-Kern 
Canal riparian restoration site would improve conditions for 
vegetation and wildlife recovery.
    Project life: 50 years.
    The National Ecosystem Restoration plan was recommended.
    Direct Beneficiaries: The long-term benefit is an increase 
in the survival of coldwater species in the lower Kings River 
downstream from Pine Flat Dam.
    Relationship to Other Plans: The Pine Flat Dam Fish and 
Wildlife Habitat Restoration Project is related to the Pine 
Flat Turbine Bypass Project, for which physical construction 
was completed in April 2003. The turbine bypass improves the 
flexibility of the multi-level intake structure by allowing 
release of water when the power plant turbines are not 
operating, thus providing cooler water than would be available 
from the flood control sluiceways. The multi-level intake 
structure allows the release of water from higher reservoir 
elevations early in the year, thus conserving cold water that 
can be released in the fall when lower water temperatures are 
most beneficial for the downstream fishery.
    Cumulative Funds Expended to Date on Previous/Related 
Projects: Funds in the amount of $4,961,000 (Federal) have been 
expended on Pine Flat 1135 Turbine Bypass for the total project 
to date. Construction is complete except for project closeout. 
Project closeout should be completed by January 2004.
    Current Status of Chief of Engineers Report: Signed July

    (3) South Platte River, Denver, Colorado.--
    Location of the Study Area: The project is located on the 
Zuni/Sun Valley Reach of the South Platte River, between 8th 
Avenue and Lakewood Gulch.
    Problems and Opportunities Identified in Study: The City 
and County of Denver has accomplished much towards restoring 
the environmental assets of Denver's South Platte River 
corridor. Only the Zuni to Sun Valley reach, which includes the 
Zuni Power Plant and the Sun Valley housing development, 
remains in a severely degraded condition. A low head Fabridam 
that is used to store water for cooling purposes by the Zuni 
Power Plant dominates this area by backing up water for over 
one mile and blocking upstream movement of aquatic organisms to 
an additional 13 miles of river habitat. Ecosystem problems 
include restricted fish mobility (100 percent blockage during 
low river flows); low dissolved oxygen levels upstream of the 
Fabridam; harmful sediment deposition in areas downstream of 
the Fabridam following periodic flushing of sediment trapped 
above the dam; no protective cover for aquatic species 
downstream of the dam; minimal riparian habitat; virtually no 
wetland habitat; extremely low stream flow depth to width 
ratios; elevated stream temperatures from power plant 
discharged water and from stagnant upstream pools heated by 
sunlight; bank stabilization problems caused by the Fabridam 
backwater; elimination of wildlife mobility due to the presence 
of the Fabridam, significant invasion by non-native plant 
species; minimal river accessconstraining recreational use of 
the river corridor; and safety problems due to steep banks and deep 
pools behind the dam.
    Opportunities exist to restore this last river reach in 
metropolitan Denver, resulting in unrestricted mobility through 
aquatic, riparian, and terrestrial habitat and substantial 
increases in wetlands and quality aquatic habitat. Once the 
Fabridam is removed and aquatic and riparian habitat is 
restored, an unobstructed South Platte greenway will exist 
through the entire 35-mile reach from Chatfield Dam through the 
Denver metropolitan area.
    Weir Gulch, a west bank tributary entering the South Platte 
River a few thousand feet upstream of the Fabridam, also 
presents significant opportunity for restoration and 
reconnection of aquatic and riparian habitat with the South 
Platte River.
    Alternative Plans Considered: Measures considered included 
re-vegetation, bank modifications, Weir Gulch restoration, 
removal of the Fabridam, development of a low flow channel, and 
no action. Also, the potential for abandonment of the dam was 
considered at some future point in time; however, the power 
plant, which relies on the dam for necessary cooling water, is 
expected to operate indefinitely into the future. Combinations 
of these measures were evaluated for cost-effectiveness and 
``best buy'' (incremental analysis) using the Institute for 
Water Resources IWR-Plan model to define the National Ecosystem 
Restoration plan.
    Description of Recommended Plan: The recommended plan is 
the National Ecosystem Restoration (NER) plan. This plan 
consists of the removal of the Fabridam, construction of a 250 
cfs low flow channel, site utility relocations, and full site 
restoration including bank modifications, revegetation with 
native plants, and Weir Gulch restoration. With removal of the 
Fabridam, a new alternative cooling water supply (a within-
channel infiltration gallery system) will be constructed to 
allow continued operation of the Zuni Power Plant.
    Physical Data on Project Features: The recommended NER plan 
will restore 15 acres of fish and wildlife habitats along one 
mile of the stream corridor of the South Platte River. Bank 
modifications will include removal of existing riprap, 
stripping of vegetation, excavation of soil material, and use 
of excavated west bank soil material to build out and stabilize 
the east bank. A 250 cfs low flow channel excavated into the 
channel will concentrate flows in a slight meandering pattern, 
creating aquatic and wetland habitat through the formation of 
riffles, pools and bars. The stream corridor throughout the 
project area will be fully vegetated with native species. Weir 
Gulch restoration will consist of clearing, grading and 
revegetation for approximately 600 feet upstream from its 
mouth.
    Views of States, Non-Federal Interests and Other Countries: 
This project is strongly supported locally by the Greenway 
Foundation, Urban Drainage and Flood Control District, and the 
City and County of Denver, the study's non-Federal sponsor. A 
letter from the State of Colorado Division of Wildlife dated 
March 9, 2001, and a letter from the Denver Board of Water 
Commissioners dated 20 February 2001 provided extensive support 
for this project, including support for the removal of the 
Fabridam and for the established goals for restoration of the 
South Platte River downstream of 8th Avenue to Lakewood Gulch. 
There is broad community support for South Platte River 
restoration, as reflected in letters of concurrence from the 
Colorado Historical Society and support from nongovernmental 
organizations, including the Audubon Society and Sierra Club. 
Approximately 40 letters of support have been received from 
agencies, organizations, and other interested parties. A State 
of Colorado letter dated December 2, 2002, had a few minor 
concerns that have been formally addressed by the Omaha 
District in a letter dated February 25, 2003.
    Views of Federal and Regional Agencies: The U.S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service letter dated February 14, 2001, states 
directly that the proposed project would not negatively impact 
any threatened and endangered species. The Environmental 
Protection Agency provided two letters, dated March 15, 2001, 
and February 26, 2003, supporting the project.
    Status of NEPA Document: The Finding of No Significant 
Impact under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 was 
signed on August 7, 2002, following public review, which ended 
on February 8, 2002. No opposing or negative responses were 
encountered or submitted.
    Estimated Implementation Costs: (October 2002 price level)

Federal: Corps of Engineers--Environmental Restoration..     $11,698,000
Non-Federal.............................................       6,299,000
                    --------------------------------------------------------
                    ____________________________________________________
      Total First Cost..................................     $17,997,000
    Description of Non-Federal Implementation Costs: The City 
and County of Denver will be responsible for acquiring all real 
estate necessary for project construction, including relocation 
of all utilities, as well as construction of the infiltration 
gallery and acquisition of all consumptive water rights. In 
accordance with report recommendations, the Federal government 
will execute and/or reimburse the non-Federal sponsor for all 
activities that exceed their 35% total project cost obligation.
    Estimated Annual O&M; Costs: (October 2002 price level) Non-
Federal Sponsor will be responsible for all operation, 
maintenance, replacement, repair, and rehabilitation (OMRR&R;) 
costs, estimated at approximately $20,000.
    Description of Non-Federal O&M; Costs: At the end of the 
monitoring period, and upon receipt of the OMRR&R; manual, the 
local sponsor will assume normal operation and maintenance 
responsibility for the project. Future operation and 
maintenance requirements will be funded entirely by the local 
sponsor.
    Estimated Effects: The recommended NER plan will restore 15 
acres of fish and wildlife habitats along one mile of the 
stream corridor of the South Platte River. A morenatural flow 
regime will be restored by removal of the Fabridam. Negative downstream 
impacts associated with sediment flushing at the Fabridam every 3-4 
months will be eliminated. The project area will experience improved 
water temperatures and water quality, a significant increase in native 
plants and fish habitat, a decrease in non-native plants and noxious 
weeds, and a net gain of approximately 3 acres of wetland. A productive 
and biologically diverse fish and wildlife community, including 
migratory waterfowl and fish-eating birds, riparian songbirds and 
mammals, and native fish, will develop. Unrestricted movement by mobile 
aquatic and riparian species will be possible along a 35-mile reach of 
the South Platte River, since restoration of river reaches both 
upstream and downstream of the proposed project through Denver has 
previously been completed by local interests.
    Benefit-Cost Ratio: Not applicable. Single purpose 
ecosystem restoration plans are formulated and evaluated in 
terms of their net contributions to increases in ecosystem 
value, expressed in non-monetary units. The Denver County Reach 
project contributes to national ecosystem restoration.
    NED plan recommended? No. The National Ecosystem 
Restoration plan is recommended.
    Direct Beneficiaries: Fish and wildlife using the South 
Platte River and the residents of the Denver metropolitan area 
and the rest of the nation will benefit from the improved fish 
and wildlife habitat quality and quantity.
    Relationship to Other Plans: The City and County of Denver 
has spent over $35 million of local funds on numerous projects 
upstream and downstream of Denver County Reach to create a more 
environmentally sound South Platte River through metropolitan 
Denver. As the last major river restoration project in 
metropolitan Denver, the proposed Denver County Reach project 
completes the transformation of the South Platte River from one 
long-abused as solely a means of providing storm drainage and a 
water delivery system for residential, agricultural and 
commercial interests to a river corridor recognized as having 
great environmental value. The project location is upstream and 
contiguous to the Colfax Reach Project, being carried out under 
section 1135 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1986.
    Cumulative Funds Expended to Date on Previous/Related 
Projects: Over $35 million on South Platte River restoration 
efforts within metropolitan Denver.
    Current Status of Chief of Engineers Report: Signed on May 
16, 2003.
    (4) Morganza to the Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana.--
    Location of Study Area: The study is located in south 
Louisiana between the Mississippi and Atchafalaya Rivers. Bayou 
Lafourche forms the western study boundary and Bayou du Large 
and Louisiana Highway 311 form the eastern boundary. The 
eastern and western boundaries form an apex at Thibodaux, 
Louisiana. The southern boundary is the Gulf of Mexico.
    Problems and Opportunities Identified in Study: Hurricanes 
and tropical storms cause widespread flooding of residential 
and commercial property in the study area. Residential 
communities, commercial and agricultural developments, and 
industries in the study area are generally located along 
alluvial ridges at elevations ranging from 4 or 5 feet to less 
than 1 foot above sea level. The Terrebonne Levee and 
Conservation District maintains about 20 miles of forced 
drainage levees in various communities, including flood control 
structures and drainage pumping stations. The existing levees 
have a maximum elevation of 7 feet above sea level and protect 
against weak tidal and rainfall events, but not hurricanes. 
Following Hurricane Andrew in 1992, Terrebonne Parish residents 
qualified for more than $23 million in FEMA claim settlements. 
Hurricane Andrew caused an estimated $55 million in losses to 
crops and other uninsured property in Terrebonne Parish alone, 
destroying over 360 homes and damaging about 2,900 more. Over 
90 percent of the damage occurred in Terrebonne Parish south of 
Houma, with up to 6 feet of water in residential and commercial 
structures.
    Alternative Plans Considered: Eight alternative plans were 
evaluated. A preliminary screening focused detailed efforts on 
the plans that provided the most benefit. Two structural 
alternatives and various non-structural alternatives were 
evaluated in detail. The structural alternatives, known as the 
Reconnaissance and the Highway 57 Alignments, involved raising 
existing levees and constructing new levees to provide reliable 
protection against 
50-, 85-, 100- and 500-year flood frequency events. The 
structural plans included earthen levees, sector-gated 
floodgate structures, and environmental water control 
structures to maintain tidal ebb and flow. The non-structural 
plans involved relocating, purchasing and elevating structures.
    Description of Recommended Plan: The recommended plan is 
the 100-year Highway 57 Alignment. Features include 
approximately 72 miles of earthen levees with 12 sector-gated 
floodgate structures, 12 environmental water-control 
structures, road closure structures, numerous pipeline 
relocations, several minor pump station discharge realignments 
and other minor features.
    Physical Data on Project Features: The recommended plan 
would protect Terrebonne Parish against storm events with a one 
percent and greater chance of exceedence. In general, many 
existing levees will be raised approximately three to seven 
feet and widened with an impervious earthen material excavated 
from nearby borrow sites. The floodgates and road closure 
structures will provide a reliable and efficient means to close 
vulnerable gaps in the levee system. A total of six pump 
station discharge pipes will be relocated to maintain interior 
drainage. Numerous oilfield pipelines will either be relocated 
over the levee or buried below the levee.
    Views of States, Non-Federal Interests and Other Countries: 
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development 
(lead sponsor), Terrebonne Parish, City of Houma, Terrebonne 
Levee and Conservation District, and 
Congressionalrepresentatives strongly support the project. The sponsor 
has indicated a strong desire to cost-share in the design and 
construction of this project.
    Views of Federal and Regional Agencies: The U.S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service (USFWS) and Environmental Protection Agency 
(EPA) raised concerns about induced floodplain development 
resulting from the Federal project that may have cumulative 
environmental effects on aquatic and terrestrial resources. 
However, these concerns are not significant enough to prevent 
this project from proceeding. Development is still regulated by 
the existing permit process. The project will mitigate for all 
direct adverse impacts resulting from construction. The Corps 
will continue to coordinate with NMFS, USFWS and EPA to ensure 
that adequate compensatory mitigation is provided.
    Status of NEPA Document: The Final Programmatic 
Environmental Impact Statement and Feasibility Report was filed 
with the EPA on April 26, 2002.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Direct Beneficiaries: This project will directly benefit 
the residents and businesses of Terrebonne Parish, and help 
preserve the Louisiana ecosystem.
    Relationship to Other Plans: This plan is consistent with 
the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act 
program and other coastal restoration projects in the study 
area.
    Cumulative Funds Expended to Date on Previous/Related 
Project(s): Approximately $6.6 million has been expended since 
January 2000 for dual preliminary engineering and design 
efforts on the detailed design of the Houma Navigation Canal 
Lock and Reach G-1 levee contract of the Morganza project.
    Credit for in-kind services: The Secretary also is directed 
to credit toward the non-Federal share the cost of work carried 
out by the non-Federal interest for interim flood protection 
after March 31, 1989, if integral to the project. This is 
consistent with the supplemental report of the Chief of 
Engineers issued July 22, 2003, under which the State of 
Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development may 
design, construct, and manage the construction of several 
project features at an estimated cost of $113,851,000 as in-
kind services in lieu of part or all of the cash portion of the 
non-Federal cost share. The features that may be designed, 
constructed, or managed during construction by the sponsor with 
in-kind services include:
           A 56-foot-wide floodgate on Bayou Pointe au 
        Chien;
           A 56-foot-wide floodgate on Bush Canal;
           A 14-foot-high and 12-mile-long levee from 
        the Bayou Pointe au Chien floodgate to Humble Canal 
        floodgate, and the structures therein;
           A 14-foot-high and 6.5-mile-long levee from 
        Bayou Petite Caillou floodgate to the Bush Canal 
        floodgate, and the structures therein; and
           A 14-foot-high and 3-mile-long levee from 
        the Bush Canal floodgate to the Bayou Terrebonne 
        floodgate, and the structures therein.
    All features to be designed and implemented through in-kind 
services must be integral to the project. Any credit afforded 
to the sponsor for approved in-kind services will be auditable, 
allowable, and allocable to the project and will be limited to 
the lesser of the Corps' estimate of the value of the work 
allocable to the project had the Corps performed the work, or 
the actual costs incurred by the sponsor.
    Current Status of Chief of Engineers Report: Signed August 
23, 2002. A supplemental Chief of Engineers Report addressing 
the sponsor's request for credit for in-kind services was 
signed on July 22, 2003.
    (5) Smith Island, Maryland.--
    Location of the Study Area: The project is located in 
Chesapeake Bay on Smith Island, Somerset County, Maryland, 
which is 12 miles west of Crisfield, Maryland, 95 miles south 
of Baltimore. The island straddles the Maryland-Virginia state 
line, but all of the project features are in Maryland. The Non-
Federal sponsors are Somerset County and the State of Maryland 
Departments of the Environment and Natural Resources.
    Problems and Opportunities Identified in Study: Smith 
Island is part of a chain of islands that form the border 
between Chesapeake Bay and Tangier Sound, and is comprised of 
97 percent emergent wetlands. The study area is within the 
largest contiguous submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) bed in 
the Bay. Although SAV coverages have been rebounding for more 
than a decade throughout the Bay, the Tangier Sound area has 
seen continual decreases in coverage. There are many factors 
that determine whether or not SAV flourishes, some factors are 
local and some are larger-scale. SAV experts have determined 
that the likely overriding factor in the study area is the 
effect of erosion. As the landmasses that make up Smith Island 
erode, it allows increased wave and current action into 
shallow-water areas that were previously protected, quiescent, 
and suitable for SAV growth. The eroded material also adds 
turbidity and nutrients to the water column that further 
inhibit SAV colonization and growth. Additionally, the 
landmasses themselves are extremely high quality emergent 
wetlands. These wetlands are even more valuable than most since 
they are part of a remote island with little human disruption. 
In its entirety, Smith Island has lost over 3,300 acres of 
wetlands in the last 150 years, and, in the identified project 
areas alone, it lost almost 2,400 acres of SAV between 1992 and 
1998.
    Alternative Plans Considered: Investigations during this 
study involved understanding and quantifying the impact of the 
ongoing process of erosion on habitat degradation. It was 
determined that the tremendous loss of SAV around parts of 
Smith Island could be stopped and, to an extent, reversed by 
protecting and restoring lost wetlands in the Martin National 
Wildlife Refuge. A number of structural means were investigated 
including stone revetment, groins, non-traditional bulkheads 
and walls, proprietary erosion control measures, artificial 
beach nourishment, breakwaters/sills, and geotextile 
breakwaters. The study team concluded that the most cost-
effective and reliable way to accomplish this was to construct 
offshore, segmented breakwaters to protect or recreate 
strategic areas along the coastline of the Refuge. In many 
areas, the breakwaters would be back-filled using borrow 
material from the Chesapeake Bay bottom west of the Island. 
This back-fill would create additional wetland habitat and 
greatly increase the effectiveness of the structures. Four main 
areas of analysis were identified in the reconnaissance effort 
and were carried through the feasibility process, the Western 
Shoreline, Fog Point Cove, Back Cove and Terrapin Sand Cove. 
Each of these areas has been seriously degraded over time due 
to erosion. Of the four, no plan at Terrapin Sand Cove was 
recommended for implementation due to the exorbitant cost. 
Plans at the other three areas that form the recommended 
project are estimated to protect 216 acres of wetlands and 504 
acres of SAV over a 50-year life span, while at the same time 
creating 24 acres of wetlands and 1,440 acres of SAV habitat. 
Minimal adverse impacts are anticipated as a result of 
construction including temporary and localized turbidity and 
impacts related to offshore borrow sites, if utilized. The 
project will require 68,000 cubic yards of material for back-
fill.
    Recommended Plan: The selected plan includes construction 
of segmented offshore breakwaters located from 30 to 100 feet 
offshore, depending upon water depth and shoreline 
configuration. The breakwaters would have a top elevation of 
+3.5 feet MLLW. Areas behind the breakwaters would be 
backfilled and wetlands enhanced through plantings. The 
following four components are included in the plan:

    (6) Corpus Christi Ship Channel, Corpus Christi, Texas.--
    Location of Study Area: The Corpus Christi Ship Channel 
(CCSC) provides deep-water access from the Gulf of Mexico to 
the Port of Corpus Christi, via Aransas Pass, through Redfish 
Bay and Corpus Christi Bay. Access points include the La Quinta 
Channel, the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW), and the Rincon 
Canal.
    Problems and Opportunities Identified in Study: The CCSC 
was the first waterway in Texas to be completed to a depth of 
45 feet. This channel ranks fifth in the Nation for tonnage 
shipped on deep-draft vessels, and in Texas only the Houston 
Ship Channel handles more tonnage. Since the completion of the 
45-foot project, the size of ships using the waterway has 
steadily increased so that many vessels currently have to be 
light-loaded to traverse the waterway. The current channel 
depth also requires that large crude carriers remain offshore 
and transfer their cargo into smaller crude tankers for the 
remainder of the voyage. Widening the Upper Bay reach and 
installing barge lanes would increase the safety factor for 
this area and would reduce the shipping delays for the project, 
especially since shipping trends indicate a movement toward the 
use of larger vessels. Development of the La Quinta extension 
would allow benefits to be achieved while enhancing the economy 
of the region.
    Alternative Plans Considered: A general screening process 
was first used to determine which structural plan would result 
in the objective of providing safe and efficient navigation at 
the least cost while minimizing environmental impacts. A total 
of 23 alternatives were initially evaluated for more detailed 
consideration. These alternatives included widening portions of 
the CCSC, deepening the CCSC, construction of barge lanes, 
deepening of the La Quinta Channel, and extending the La Quinta 
Channel. The reporting officers recommend a plan to modify the 
existing projects for Corpus Christi and La Quinta channels and 
provide ecosystem restoration to areas near the navigation 
channel.
    Description of Selected Plan: Based on the economic, 
engineering, and environmental factors considered, the 
recommended plan consists of the following improvements:
    (a) Deepen the CCSC from Viola Turning Basin to the end of 
the jetties in the Gulf of Mexico (approximately 34 miles) to 
-52 feet mean low tide (MLT); deepen the remainder of the 
channel into the Gulf of Mexico (approximately 2 miles) to -54 
feet MLT; and widen the Upper Bay and Lower Bay reaches 
(approximately 20 miles) to 530 feet.
    (b) Construct barge shelves (channels) 200-foot-wide and 
12-foot-deep MLT on both sides of the CCSC from it's junction 
with the La Quinta Channel to the entrance of the Inner Harbor 
(approximately 10 miles).
    (c) Extend the La Quinta Channel approximately 1.4 miles 
beyond its current limit at a depth of -39 feet MLT. The 
channel will measure 400 feet wide and include a second turning 
basin. The turning basin will be constructed at the end of the 
proposed channel extension with a diameter of 1200 feet, to a 
depth of -39 feet, MLT. The existing La Quinta Channel will 
remain at the existing 45-foot depth. The creation of 15 acres 
of sea grass adjacent to the La Quinta extension will mitigate 
for project impacts to approximately 5 acres of sea grass.
    (d) Construct two ecosystem restoration features, including 
rock breakwaters and geo-tubes to protect 1,200 acres of an 
existing high quality, complex wetland ecosystem that is 
comprised of a valuable mix of subtidal habitat, salt marsh, 
blue-green algae flats, sand flats and associated uplands. 
Additionally, protect 40 acres of highly productive sea grass. 
Both components are adjacent to the CCSC in the Lower Bay reach 
of the channel.
    Physical Data on Project Features: Deepening of the CCSC to 
-52 feet will allow vessels with deeper draft to access port 
facilities without first lightering/lightening theirloads. 
Widening of the CCSC will allow for two-way traffic in the channel, 
increasing safety and reducing delays. Barge lanes will allow the 
smaller, slower barges to transit the bay without the increased concern 
of collisions with larger ships. This will reduce delays and increase 
safety. Extension of the La Quinta Channel will allow benefits to be 
achieved while enhancing the economy of the region. Ecosystem 
restoration components will protect and enhance several important 
habitats including estuarine marsh, submerged aquatic vegetation, and 
endangered species habitat.
    Views of States, Non-Federal Interests and Other Countries: 
The selected beneficial use plan is the least costly plan that 
is implementable and has the support of the State and Federal 
resource agencies. The non-Federal sponsor for the existing 
project, the Port of Corpus Christi Authority, has actively 
participated throughout the planning process. The Port of 
Corpus Christi Authority is supportive of the selected plan and 
has indicated an interest in beginning construction as soon as 
possible. There are no known significant issues.
    Views of Federal and Regional Agencies: Extensive 
coordination was performed with the State and Federal resource 
agencies through the development of a Regulatory Agency 
Coordination Team. No outstanding issues remain.
    States of NEPA Document: The Final Feasibility Report and 
Final Environmental Impact Statement were filed in the Federal 
Register on April 18, 2003.
    Estimated Implementation Costs: Based on October 2002 
prices, the estimated total first cost of the project are about 
$153,808,000 with the Federal cost of $73,554,000 and a non-
Federal cost of $80,254,000. This total first cost includes 
about $128,658,000 for cost-shared general navigation features; 
$7,852,000 for lands, easements, rights-of-way, and 
relocations; $13,016,000 for non-Federal share of deep draft 
utility relocations; and $4,282,000 for two cost-shared 
ecosystem restoration features. Total project implementation 
costs of approximately $203,480,000 include total project cost, 
plus $49,672,000 in non-Federal costs associated with dredging 
of berthing areas and development of other local service 
facilities.
    Description of Non-Federal Implementation Costs: The non-
Federal share of the first cost for navigation features is 
$78,755,000, and for ecosystem restoration is $1,499,000.
    Estimated Annual O&M; Costs: The incremental annual cost for 
operation and maintenance (O&M;) of the recommended plan is 
estimated at $2,247,000. In accordance with Section 101(b) of 
the Water Resources Development Act of 1986, the non-Federal 
interest will be responsible for 50 percent of the costs 
attributable to maintenance dredging to a depth in excess of 
-45 feet below MLT. Annual O&M; costs for the CCSC are estimated 
to be $1,670,000. Annual O&M; costs for the barge shelves are 
expected to be $27,000. Annual O&M; costs for the La Quinta 
extension are expected to be $550,000.
    Description of Non-Federal O&M; Cost: The non-Federal 
sponsor will cost-share O&M; for the CCSC at the same ratio as 
construction for the increment below 45 feet in depth. O&M; for 
the barge shelves, and La Quinta extension will be paid 100% by 
the Federal interest. The non-Federal sponsor will also be 
responsible for 100% of O&M; costs associated with mitigation 
and ecosystem restoration.

    (7) Matagorda Bay, Texas.--
    Location of Study Area: The Gulf Intracoastal Waterway 
(GIWW) parallels the Gulf of Mexico's coastline from 
Brownsville, at the southern tip of Texas, to St. Marks, 
Florida. The man-made channel is maintained by the U.S. Army 
Corps of Engineers at a minimum bottom width of 125 feet and a 
minimum depth of 12 feet. This shallow draft channel is an 
integral part of the total inland transportation system of the 
United States. The GIWW is a necessary link in the 
transportation network that moves commodities throughout the 
United States, as well as foreign markets. The Matagorda Bay 
reach of the GIWW extends from Channel Mile 454 to 473, a 
distance of about 19 miles.The GIWW leaves the landlocked 
portion on the eastern side of Matagorda Bay near Mile 454 and turns in 
a southwesterly direction before turning west and running parallel to 
Matagorda Peninsula. At Mile 471, the GIWW intersects with the deep-
draft Matagorda Ship Channel (MSC). The GIWW enters the landlocked 
portion again at Port O'Connor near Mile 473.
    Problems and Opportunities Identified in Study: The 
proximity of the GIWW to the natural pass of Pass Cavallo and 
the construction of the jettied entrance channel and deep-draft 
MSC has created maintenance dredging problems and a navigation 
hazard. The influences of the natural and man-made channels 
have created a dangerous crosscurrent at the intersection with 
the GIWW. One-way traffic has been self-imposed from mile 
marker 469 to the Port O'Connor jetties at mile 473. To the 
south of the GIWW is Sundown Island, a National Audubon Society 
bird sanctuary. To the north is the dredged material placement 
site for the maintenance dredging operations. This has 
effectively limited the ability of barge traffic to maneuver to 
compensate for the crosscurrents and shoaling. The Feasibility 
Report offers an opportunity to relocate and widen the existing 
channel to avoid the strong crosscurrents and allow for safe 
two-way vessel passage.
    Alternative Plans Considered: The process for this study 
began with several alternative solutions that were considered 
reasonable and practical for the Matagorda Bay reach of the 
GIWW. Additional alternatives and changes to current 
alternatives were added as the study progressed. The non-
structural and structural alternative plans were presented and 
developed to the level of detail needed to evaluate each plan 
alternative. The ultimate goal of the study was to identify the 
National Economic Development Plan and the selected plan. Non-
structural alternatives, other than no-action, included the 
utilization of alternate modes of transportation such as the 
use of rail, truck, ocean-going barge, or combinations of these 
alternatives. The typical ratio of tonnage per movement between 
rail and inland barges is about 15 to 1, and with truck the 
ratio is about 60 to 1. Another non-structural alternative of 
additional tugs to assist barges across the high-current area 
was considered but eliminated because the alternative did not 
fully address the problems. Structural alternatives included 
dredging exchange outlets across the Matagorda barrier island 
to reduce the strong currents at the MSC, or realigning the 
existing route to avoid the existing current.
    Description of Selected Plan: The selected plan involves a 
Southern Realignment utilizing the existing GIWW route on the 
eastward end for approximately 3.9 miles before turning 
westward. The alignment is approximately 6,000 feet north of 
and parallel to the existing route. As the channel approaches 
the MSC, it is aligned towards the north, approximately 7,500 
feet from the existing GIWW at its farthest point. The channel 
intersects the MSC approximately 6,000 feet north of the 
existing GIWW. The alignment then reconnects with the existing 
GIWW just before entering the jetties at Port O'Connor. A flare 
at the intersection allows the tows to realign in the GIWW 
before passing through the jetties. The total length of this 
alignment is 13 miles and divided into three reaches. Reach 1 
is from station 0+00 to 160+00. Reach 2 is from 160+00 to 
452+00. Reach 3 is from 452+00 to 704+59. The proposed channel 
depth is 12 feet, plus 2 feet of overdepth and 2 feet of 
advanced maintenance. The bottom width remains at 125 feet from 
station 0+00 to 550+00. It continues westward to station 703+00 
with an average bottom width of 300 feet. The Southern 
Realignment results in 2.5 million cubic yards of dredged 
material and avoids impacts to oyster reefs. Future maintenance 
dredging is estimated at 77,000 cubic yards per year.
    Physical Data on Project Features:
    (a) Several ecosystem restoration features and beneficial 
use of dredged material features are included in the selected 
placement plan.
    (b) The area south of the shoreline east of Palacios Point 
is suitable for marsh creation using the material dredged from 
Reach 1. The water depth near the shoreline quickly drops to 2 
feet and increases to 5 feet approximately 700 feet from the 
water's edge. The bottom sediment is sandy clay with large 
amounts of shell material, although no live oysters were 
present. Some 7,000 feet east of Palacios Point, soil 
conditions and water depths are considered more suitable for 
establishment of oyster beds, therefore this would represent 
the limit of the marsh. The sandy clay material has sufficient 
bearing strength to easily support a geotextile tube that would 
be used as the perimeter levee of the marsh site. A marsh 
between 58 and 78 acres would be sufficient to contain the 
dredged material from Reach 1.
    (c) For Reach 3, an acceptable marsh creation site was 
found in the bay, south of Broad Bayou and north of Port 
O'Connor. The area along the shore is prime habitat for oyster 
beds and sea grass is plentiful. However, some 900 feet from 
shore the depth of water is 4 feet and varies between 4 feet 
and 5 feet for approximately another 1,500 feet farther from 
shore. Maintaining this distance from shore ensures that the 
marsh avoids impacting this habitat. Approximately 108 acres of 
marsh can be created from the dredged material. The foundation 
material in this area is a silty sand with considerable shell 
fragments. The bearing capacity is easily sufficient for the 
geotextile tube that would be required to achieve the necessary 
levee height.
    (d) Sundown Island in Matagorda Bay is situated 
approximately one mile southeast of the intersection of the 
existing GIWW and the MSC. This island was created entirely 
from dredged material and consists of 60 acres, not including 
an existing bird island of 16 acres enclosed by one 8-foot-high 
geotextile tube on the east end of the island. The site is a 
designated National Audubon Sanctuary (NAS) and serves as a 
nesting site for several endangered and threatened species. Due 
to the strong currents in the area, the island undergoes severe 
erosion. The NAS has requested that dredged material be placed 
on the perimeter of the island to offset the effects of erosion 
and help preserve the site. This existing bird island has a 
remaining capacity that can utilize the more sandy material 
from the western portion of Reach 3. An additional levee can be 
constructed off the north shore of Sundown Island, using 8-
foot-high tubes. Thenorthwestern leg of the existing bird 
island's tube can serve as one of the boundaries in the new enclosure. 
With geotextile tubes placed out to distances of between 450 and 700 
feet, in water depths suitable for avoiding stacking of tubes, an 
additional 31 acres would provide a storage capacity of 414,752 cubic 
yards of material. It will be necessary to construct a 2-foot berm 
under the tube's scour pad to raise the levee height in the deeper 
water. The western portion of Reach 3 consists of, on average, 74.3% 
loose sand. There is sufficient suitable sandy material for both the 
placement at Sundown Island and at Port O'Connor beach.
    (e) The beach at Port O'Connor was originally constructed 
as a beneficial use site using material dredged from the GIWW. 
The area north of the existing geotextile tube jetty that 
extends from the beach has experienced some erosion. This area 
could benefit from placement of the sandy material from 
dredging the western portion of Reach 3. The area would extend 
from the shore to approximately 300 to 400 feet into the water. 
The sand quality of this material, mostly between 37% and 14% 
fines, is sufficient for this purpose. The material could be 
pumped onto the beach from an average depth of between -2 feet 
and +1 feet (MLLW). This restoration could yield a disposal 
capacity for approximately 200,000 cubic yards of dredged 
material. The use of this beach as a beneficial use site may be 
considered once or twice during the 50-year maintenance dredge 
plan.
    (f) The application of ecosystem restoration and beneficial 
uses of dredged material for both new work and maintenance 
material for the selected plan is summarized below.
    --In Reach 1, dredged material would be used to create a 
10-acre marsh at Palacios Point. The remainder of the material 
would be deposited in the offshore surf zone. Material from 
each 10-year maintenance-dredging event would be used to create 
an additional 25-acre marsh at Palacios Point.
    --For Reach 2, all of the new work and maintenance material 
would be placed in the offshore surf zone.
    --In Reach 3, new work material would be used to create a 
20-acre marsh at Port O'Connor, nourish the Port O'Connor 
beach, provide material to Sundown Island, and offshore 
placement in the surf zone. Maintenance material from each 3-
year dredging event would be used to create an additional 20-
acre marsh at Port O'Connor for the first 21 years or 7 cycles. 
After 21 years, the maintenance material would be placed 
offshore in the surf zone.
    Views of States, Non-Federal Interests and Other Countries: 
The non-Federal sponsor for the existing navigation project, 
the Port of Corpus Christi Authority, has actively participated 
throughout the planning process. The Port of Corpus Christi 
Authority is supportive of the selected plan and has indicated 
an interest in beginning construction as soon as possible. 
There are no known significant issues.
    Views of Federal and Regional Agencies: The local sponsor 
for the existing navigation project, the Texas Department of 
Transportation, has actively participated throughout the 
planning process. Their primary concern has been about the 
potential interruption of navigational traffic on the waterway 
and the economic impacts to the region and to the State. The 
Texas Department of Transportation supports the Matagorda Bay 
Re-Route and the continuation of shallow draft navigation of 
the State's coastal waters. Extensive coordination was 
performed with the State and Federal resource agencies through 
the development of the NED plan and no outstanding issues 
remain.
    Status of NEPA Document: The Final Feasibility Report and 
Final Environmental Assessment have been approved by all 
necessary Environmental Agencies. An Environmental Impact 
Statement was not required for this report.
    Estimated Implementation Costs: At October 2002 prices, the 
estimated total project cost is $14,515,000. Fifty percent of 
the project cost is from general revenues and fifty percent is 
derived from the Inland Waterway Trust Fund.
    Description of Non-Federal Implementation Costs: One-half 
of project costs will come from the Inland Waterway Trust Fund.
    Estimated Annual O&M; Costs: Annual operation and 
maintenance costs for the GIWW across Matagorda Bay are 
estimated to be $630,000.
    Description of Non-Federal O&M; Cost: There are no non-
Federal costs.

    (8) Riverside Oxbow, Fort Worth, Texas.--
    Location of Study Area: The study area is located within 
the corporate limits of Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas.
    Problems and Opportunities Identified in Study: The 
Riverside Oxbow and surrounding area has experienced both 
direct and indirect environmental degradation as a result of 
the construction and implementation of Benbrook Lake, Eagle 
Mountain Lake, Lake Worth, the Fort Worth Floodway project, and 
subsequent flood control projects and development activities. 
According to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service 
(1985), the indirect downstream effects of large flood control 
projects and reservoir construction on natural bottomland 
ecosystems are often more destructive, albeit not as immediate, 
as the direct impacts. Adverse impacts observed downstream 
include: (1) An unnatural bottomland hydro-period causing major 
vegetational changes toward more xeric species as a result of 
the reduction in flooding; (2) the reduction of associated 
nutrient inputs to downstream bottomlands; (3) the loss of 
aquatic flora and fauna; (4) the loss of bank-stabilizing 
vegetation as a result of excessive bed and bank scour from 
irregular reservoir releases; (5) disruption of normal feeding 
and spawning cycles of fish which use floodplains; (6) 
elimination of high flows into bottomlands which prevents the 
input of bottomland nutrients into the aquatic system; and (7) 
potential negative effects to plant communities as a result of 
prolonged water releases during the growing season.
    Alternative Plans Considered: Alternatives investigated in 
detail included three plans; the no-action, the National 
Ecosystem Restoration (NER) Plan and the Locally Preferred Plan 
(LPP).
    Description of Recommended Plan: The Recommended Plan is 
the locally preferred plan (LPP). In total, the recommended 
plan would restore ecosystem values on 512.2 acres of 
floodplain lands, approximately 2 miles of Oxbow river channel, 
56.5 acres of wetlands, and 112 acres of uplands. It would also 
provide 25,700 feet of mixed surface linear recreation trails.
    Physical Data on Project Features: The Recommended Plan 
consists of reestablishing flows through the old West Fork of 
the Trinity River Oxbow including replacing the existing Beach 
Street Bridge; creation of 69.6 acres of emergent wetlands, 
open water, and vegetative fringe habitat; habitat improvement 
of 179.7 acres of existing forested areas, including 
establishment of a 150-foot-wide riparian buffer along the West 
Fork from Riverside Drive to East 1st Street; establishment of 
a buffer of native grasses and forbs on approximately 45.6 
acres of land; reforestation of roughly 66.9 acres using a 
variety of native hard and soft mast trees and shrubs; 
preservation and habitat improvements to approximately 206.9 
acres of native floodplain grassland; and eradication of 80 
acres of invasive species and reestablishment of native species 
and creek bed protection on 112 acres within the Tandy Hills 
Nature Preserve. The plan also includes compatible linear 
recreation along a 9,000-feet by 10-feet wide concrete trail 
including one vehicular bridge, 1,400 feet of crushed agregate 
trail, 7,600 feet of wood mulch equestrian trail, three 
observation areas, a new Gateway Park entrance road and bridge 
and other associated facilities (access points, parking lot, 
and restroom facilities), and 7,743 feet of crushed agregate 
trail and associated facilities (access points and parking lot) 
in the Tandy Hill Nature Preserve.
    Views of States, Non-Federal Interests and Other Countries: 
The Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) is the local 
sponsor. The TRWD strongly supports the project and will fund 
the local share of the project.
    Views of Federal and Regional Agencies: The U.S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department 
support the recommended plan as it would have substantial 
positive benefits to fish and wildlife resources of the project 
area. There are no outstanding issues.
    Status of NEPA Document: The Final Environmental Assessment 
has been included as part of the Final Feasibility Report, 
dated May 2003. These documents were released for public review 
and comment on April 14, 2003, and minor comments were received 
by the close of the public comment period on May 14, 2003.
    Estimated Implementation Costs of Recommended LPP Plan: The 
estimated first cost for construction of the recommended 
project is $22,198,000 (October 2002 price level), with a 
Federal cost of $9,178,500 and a non-Federal cost of 
$13,019,500.

     Description of Non-Federal Implementation Costs: Non-
Federal implementation costs for the Recommended Plan consist 
primarily of the cost related to the acquisition of lands, 
easements, rights-of-way, relocations and disposals (LERRDs), 
and additional local features (ALF). The estimated cost of the 
LERRDS is $11.8 million. Non-Federal cash for the NER is 
approximately $581,000, and for the LPP, approximately 
$1,222,500.
    Estimated Annual O&M; Costs: There are no Federal annual 
operation and maintenance costs. The local sponsor, the Tarrant 
Regional Water District will be responsible for all operation 
and maintenance costs for the NER plan estimated at $72,500 
annually, and for the LPP, approximately $87,500 annually.
    Description of Non-Federal O&M; Costs: Operation and 
maintenance responsibilities include mowing, trash collection 
and, as needed, replacements or rehabilitation of any of its 
components.

    (9) Deep Creek, Chesapeake, Virginia.--
    Location of the Study Area: The Norfolk District Corps of 
Engineers operates a Federally owned highway bridge over which 
U.S. Route 17 (George Washington Highway) crosses the Dismal 
Swamp Canal (DSC), a part of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway 
(AIWW). The bridge was constructed in 1934 and is located in 
the community of Deep Creek in the city of Chesapeake, 
Virginia. Chesapeake is part of the large metropolitan area of 
Hampton Roads, at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. The city is 
located in southeastern Virginia, approximately 150 miles 
southeast of Washington, D.C. The non-Federal sponsor is the 
City of Chesapeake, VA.
    Problems and Opportunities Identified in Study: The 
existing Deep Creek Bridge is a two lane, single-leaf Bascule 
Bridge that was constructed in 1934 at a cost of $64,000. The 
bridge is now outdated and while structurally sound it is 
functionally obsolete in that it does not conform to existing 
standards for traffic load limits and roadway geometry. Traffic 
congestion and delays are commonplace. Potential adverse 
impacts to vessel traffic on the AIWW could result due to 
malfunction of the bridge, which has been used for almost twice 
its originally estimated useful life. The city of Chesapeake 
operates and maintains four moveable highway bridges over 
navigable waterways, has experience in operating to meet the 
needs of navigation, and is willing to take over operation and 
maintenance of the improved bridge.
    In a letter dated March 21, 1996, the city of Chesapeake 
requested that the Norfolk District consider the need for and 
feasibility of modifying or replacing this structure in 
conjunction with City and Commonwealth of Virginia plans to 
improve the road system in this area. The City has already 
begun improvements to the area's roadways, and the Commonwealth 
is currently contracting the design for a 10-mile stretch of 
U.S. Route 17 improvements from the North Carolina line to the 
proposed Dominion Boulevard. These improvements are needed to 
accommodate the rapidly increasing development in this area of 
Chesapeake. The sponsor's letter also stated that, the City 
would assume ownership and subsequent operation and maintenance 
of a replacement bridge.
    Alternative Plans Considered: The possible solutions 
examined in the feasibility study included: (1) Abandonment of 
the existing bridge in favor of relocating highways; (2) 
abandonment of the waterway; (3) rerouting the waterway to 
consolidate or minimizehighway crossings; (4) bridge 
replacement with adequate structures that will accommodate existing and 
future traffic conditions and minimize delays for highway uses and 
navigation traffic; and (5) continued use of the existing low-level 
bridge. Bridge replacements included high-level fixed-span bridges, 
low-level bridges, and tunnels under the Dismal Swamp Canal.
    Description of the Recommended Plan: The recommended plan, 
which is the National Economic Development (NED) plan, consists 
of replacing the existing bridge with a 5-lane, low-level, 
split-leaf, pit bascule bridge aligned south of and parallel to 
the existing bridge's centerline, and approach roadways.
    (a) Structural:
    (1) The selected plan consists of a separate 2-lane leaf 
(eastbound) and 3-lane leaf (westbound). The eastbound leaf 
would be 75 feet long, 40 feet wide, and have two vehicle lanes 
and a pedestrian sidewalk. The westbound lane would have 3 
vehicle lanes and be approximately 48 feet wide. The two spans 
would be separated by a space of approximately 1.5 feet. The 
new deck elevation would be at approximately 16.9 feet National 
Geodetic Vertical Datum, which is approximately 5.5 to 7 feet 
above average ground elevation in the vicinity and over one 
foot higher than the existing bridge deck. The roadway 
centerline would be approximately 100 feet south of the 
existing bridge centerline.
    (2) Approach Roadways--The higher deck would require 
modifications to the approach roads on either side of the 
bridge to tie into existing road elevations on Cedar Road and 
Old Mill Road, as well as tying into the intersecting portions 
of George Washington Highway and Route 17. The recommended 
south parallel alignment was developed for a 5-lane roadway 
width. This south alternative alignment is less likely to 
disturb existing utilities. The provision of a fifth lane 
allows smooth traffic movement at the intersection without 
unreasonable stacking of traffic onto the bridge. In 
particular, the fifth lane will provide a dedicated through 
lane to Old Mill Road and a left turn lane for southbound 
traffic on Mill Creek Parkway. These movements are projected to 
increase substantially over the life of the project. The 
location of the proposed south alignment was set to allow 
continued operation of the existing bridge during new bridge 
construction. The approach roadway design speed for this 
alignment is 35 mph.
    (3) Lands, easements, rights-of-way, and relocations--
Property impacts resulting from the horizontal and vertical 
alignment changes require the acquisition of rights-of-way, the 
demolition of three commercial buildings, and the relocation of 
businesses in two of those buildings. This alignment will not 
require relocation of major utilities as the preponderance of 
these utilities is located north of the existing bridge.
    (b) Environmental Features: There would be no net loss of 
aquatic habitat resulting from the relocation of the fender 
system in the canal or from any activities associated with 
construction of the replacement bridge. Loss of wetland and 
aquatic habitat (estimated at less than one-tenth of an acre) 
will be mitigated on existing lands at a 2-1 ratio. Water 
quality would be disturbed temporarily during construction but 
would return to normal after completion of the project.
    The selected plan described above is a design refinement of 
the bridge described in the Feasibility Report, which consisted 
of a 5-lane, low-level, fast acting (Scherzer rolling lift), 
single-leaf bascule bridge located south of and parallel to the 
existing bridge. The design change resulted from ongoing 
coordination by the Project Delivery Team including two design 
charrettes to refine the bridge design and roadway tie-ins. The 
results of these efforts are provided in an Addendum to the 
Feasibility Report dated April 23, 2002. The refined design has 
several advantages over the initial design presented in the 
feasibility report including improving the sequence of 
construction, provides a better alignment which reduces real 
estate needs and impacts to adjacent properties, and allows 
better maintenance of traffic during construction. The new 
design does not change the estimated OMRR&R; costs. The new 
design involves both cost savings and increased costs for 
various project features. There is a net increase in cost; 
estimated first costs are $21.8 million for the split-leaf 
bridge design compared to $21.5 million for the single leaf 
design (after updating to October 2001 price levels and 
applying a discount rate of 6.125%). The increase is largely 
due to increased work resulting from additional information on 
site conditions and to increases in materials costs. These 
costs would be associated with any bridge plans; therefore, the 
new design remains the NED plan.
    The plan initially preferred by the non-Federal sponsor was 
a four-lane bridge. However, the studies have shown that in 
addition to providing greater overall benefits the addition of 
the fifth lane provides for a through lane to Old Mill Road and 
a left turn lane for southbound traffic on Mill Creek Parkway. 
These improvements allow for smooth traffic flow without 
backing traffic onto the bridge. The sponsor concurred with the 
selection of the NED plan.
    Views of States, Non-Federal Interests and Other Countries: 
The Commonwealth of Virginia, Department of Environmental 
Quality, responded by letter dated August 20, 2001. This letter 
forwarded a copy of the Commonwealth's January 29, 2001, 
comments on the draft report, which stated they had no 
objection to the project as long as it is constructed in 
accordance with all applicable State and Federal laws and 
regulations. There were no additional comments.
    Views of Federal and Regional Agencies: The U.S. Department 
of the Interior (DOI), Office of the Secretary, responded by 
letter dated August 8, 2001. DOI had no comments to offer and 
did not object to the proposed project. The Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA), Region 3 and Department of 
Transportation, responded by phone conversation on February 26, 
2002, and August 21, 2001, respectively, that each had no 
comments to offer.
    Status of NEPA Document: Because there were no significant 
issues affecting the natural and human environment, an 
Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant 
Impact (FONSI) were prepared for this project. The FONSI was 
signed by the Norfolk District Engineer on April 25, 2001. The 
final Feasibility Report and EAwith the signed FONSI were 
circulated for State and agency review on July 10, 2001. The State and 
Agency review period ended on August 9, 2001.

    (c) Environmental Quality--There are no major or long-term 
adverse environmental effects that would result from the 
implementation of the selected plan. Water quality would be 
temporarily disturbed during the construction phase of the 
project but would return to normal once construction is 
completed.
    Petroleum contamination was discovered east of the existing 
bridge. The site will be remediated by the City and verified 
clean under all Federal and State standards prior to the 
government's purchase of that real estate and before 
commencement of any construction activities associated with 
that area.
    (d) Regional Economic Development Effects--The regional 
economic development account indicates that there is a positive 
impact of the NED plan on employment and income in the regional 
economy from construction and operation, maintenance, 
replacement, repair, and rehabilitation activities. The 
construction and subsequent operation and maintenance of the 
new bridge would provide regional gains in output, earnings, 
and employment.
    In addition, there would be both positive and negative 
impacts associated with the new bridge on businesses located 
along the improved roadway. Such impacts are related to 
parking, visibility, access, traffic flow, and location.
    (e) Other Social Effects--The most significant negative 
social effect would be the displacement of businesses that 
would be necessary with all of the alternatives, except for a 
replacement of the existing structure with another two-lane 
bridge in the same location. The 5-lane bridge on the southern 
alignment would require the demolition of three commercial 
buildings and the relocation of two businesses.
    Some short-term disruption of the internal traffic patterns 
within the community may occur during construction of the new 
bridge, the approach improvement, and removal of the old 
bridge. The long-term provision to the community of increased 
safety and improved traffic flow would help to offset this 
temporary effect.
    Direct Beneficiaries: Highway users.
    Relationship to Other Plans: The recommended plan is 
commensurate with the connecting roadways and will improve 
traffic flow and reduce delays in the heavily congested area at 
peak traffic hours. In addition, navigation along the AIWW will 
not be adversely impacted.
    Cumulative Funds Expended to Date on Previous/Related 
Projects: In excess of an estimated $15,000,000 has been 
expended on the Norfolk District project for the Atlantic 
Intracoastal Waterway between Norfolk, VA, and the St. John's 
River, FL.
    Current Status of Chief of Engineers Report: A final Chief 
of Engineers report was signed on March 3, 2003.

Section 1007. Small projects for shoreline protection

    Directs the Secretary to study and carry out a project 
under section 3 of the Act entitled ``An Act authorizing the 
Federal participation in the cost of protecting the shores of 
publicly owned property,'' approved August 13, 1946, at Nelson 
Lagoon, Alaska.

Section 1008. Small projects for snagging and sediment removal

    Directs the Secretary to study and carry out a project 
under section 2 of the Flood Control Act of August 28, 1937 at 
Kowawese Unique Area and Hudson River, New Windsor, New York.

                      TITLE II--GENERAL PROVISIONS

Section 2001. Annual passes for recreation

    Amends section 208(c)(4) of the Water Resources Development 
Act of 1996 to extend the authority for alternative annual 
passes to December 31, 2004.

Section 2002. Non-Federal contributions

    Amends section 103 of the Water Resources Development Act 
of 1986 by placing a prohibition on the solicitation of excess 
contributions from the non-Federal sponsor for water resources 
development projects. This provision does not affect the 
ability of non-Federal interest to make additional 
contributions in order to implement a project as provided in 
section 903(c) of the Water Resources Development Act of 1986.

Section 2003. Harbor cost sharing

    Amends sections 101 and 214 of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 1986 by striking ``45 feet'' each place it 
appears and inserting ``53 feet'' and provides that such 
amendments shall only apply to the project, or separable 
element thereof, on which a contract for physical construction 
has not been awarded before the date of enactment of this Act.

Section 2004. Funding to process permits

    Amends section 214 of the Water Resources Development Act 
of 2000 to extend the period of funding to process permits to 
2005.

Section 2005. National Shoreline Erosion Control Development and 
        Demonstration Program

    Amends sections 5(a) and 5(b)(1)(A) of the Act entitled 
``An Act authorizing Federal participation in the cost of 
protecting the shores of publicly owned property'', to extend 
the program to 10 years and to continue the planning, design, 
and construction phase to 6 years, provide for cost-sharing, 
allow removal of some projects, and to increase the 
authorization level from $21,000,000 to $31,000,000.

Section 2006. Written agreement for water resources projects

    This section amends section 221(a) of the Flood Control Act 
of 1970, to rename project cooperation agreements as 
partnership agreements, allow District Engineers to enter into 
partnership agreements, and to include a provision for 
liquidated damages. This section also amends section 912(b) of 
the Water Resources Development Act of 1986 to eliminate civil 
penalties in partnership agreements and allow the use of 
liquidated damages instead. The purpose of this section is to 
encourage a new culture of partnership among the Corps of 
Engineers and its non-Federal project sponsors, and to 
substantially increase the efficiency of Corps project 
implementation.
    The Water Resources Development Act of 1986 significantly 
increased the roles and responsibilities of project sponsors. 
Non-Federal interests were required to act in cohort and 
partnership with the Federal Government in carrying out 
projects. Non-Federal interests found themselves responsible 
for providing a substantial portion of the cost of the project.
    As a result of the Water Resources Development Act of 1986, 
project cooperation agreements (PCAs) required under Section 
221 of the Flood Control Act of 1970 and Section 912 of the 
Water Resources Development Act of 1986 assumed significant 
importance in defining non-Federal responsibilities for 
providing items of local cooperation. Unfortunately, since 
1986, the administration of PCAs has evolved into a layered 
bureaucracy that frustrates non-Federal interests and 
unnecessarily slows progress toward ultimate project 
construction.
    Non-Federal interests frequently express concern that PCAs 
serve only the interests of the Federal government and often 
impose binding conditions on them that are inconsistent with 
their non-Federal constitutional powers, creating an 
adversarial atmosphere of mistrust that frustrates the 
essential partnership needed for effective project 
implementation. Non-Federal project partners also find 
frustration in the multiple layers of review and approval 
imposed upon the execution of PCAs within the Department of the 
Army. Projects are delayed for long periods, some for years, 
awaiting approval and execution of the project agreement.
    This section adopts a structure under which the Assistant 
Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) develops broad policy to 
govern the content of partnership agreements to comply with law 
and policy; the Chief of Engineers provides specific policy 
guidelines governing the content of these agreements; and 
District Commanders review and execute partnership agreements. 
These changes reflect favorably on the capability of 
Divisionsand Districts to accomplish as much review and approval as 
possible. The Committee does not expect all partnership agreements to 
undergo a Washington level review. However, agreements that address 
novel issues may continue to be reviewed and the Chief of Engineers or 
the Assistant Secretary may choose to audit a representative sample of 
partnership agreements to ensure compliance with law and policy.
    Through these changes, the Committee expects to address the 
concerns of non-Federal interests, improve efficiency by 
streamlining the process for approving partnership agreements, 
and to foster a culture of true partnerships that will improve 
projects and their implementation.

Section 2007. Assistance for remediation, restoration, and reuse

    Authorizes the Secretary to provide assessment, planning, 
and design assistance to State and local governments for 
remediation, environmental restoration, and reuse of areas that 
will contribute to improvement in water quality or to 
conservation of water and related resources. The non-Federal 
share is 50%. Authorizes $30,000,000 a year for fiscal years 
2004-2008. Under the authority provided by this section, the 
Secretary may help the city of Norwich, Connecticut, carry out 
an environmental assessment of the Seders property at Norwich 
Harbor, Connecticut.

Section 2008. Compilation of laws

    Directs the Secretary to produce a compilation of water 
resources development laws enacted after November 8, 1966, and 
before January 1, 2004. The Committee included similar language 
in the Water Resources Development Act of 1986, which the 
Secretary has not implemented. The Committee strongly supports 
public availability and consolidation of laws related to water 
resources development, and expects the Secretary to promptly 
comply with this section using existing, internal resources.

Section 2009. Dredged material disposal

    Amends section 217 of the Water Resources Development Act 
of 1996 to ensure that the Secretary has the authority to 
address dredged material disposal on a regional, as well as a 
project-by-project basis, and may combine funding from separate 
projects to do so.

Section 2010. Wetlands mitigation

    Requires the Secretary, to the maximum extent practicable 
and where appropriate, to give preference for use of wetlands 
mitigation banks that meet certain criteria, when carrying out 
wetlands mitigation for a water resources project. Nothing in 
this section affects the responsibility of the Corps of 
Engineers to apply the guidelines developed under section 
404(b)(1) of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act.

Section 2011. Remote and subsistence harbors

    Allows the Secretary to recommend a project for harbor and 
navigation improvements without the need to demonstrate that 
the project is justified solely by national economic 
development benefits if (1) the community served by the project 
is at least 70 miles from the nearest surface accessible 
commercial port with no direct rail or highway link to another 
serviceable community or located in the Commonwealth of Puerto 
Rico, Guam, the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, or 
American Samoa; (2) the harbor is economically critical such 
that over 80 percent of the goods transported would be consumed 
within the community served by the harbor and navigation 
improvement; and (3) the long term viability of the community 
is dependent on the harbor, including access to resources and 
facilities designed to protect public health and safety.

Section 2012. Beneficial uses of dredged material

    Amends section 204 of the Water Resources Development Act 
of 1992 to allow cost-sharing of the use of dredged material at 
any water resources project (not just aquatic ecosystem 
restoration projects), to allow nonprofit entities to serve as 
the non-Federal interest for a project under specified 
conditions, to increase the authorization of appropriations to 
$30,000,000 annually, and to allow the Secretary to develop 
regional sediment management plans at full Federal expense. 
Also allows the Secretary to use this dredged material to carry 
out, at full Federal expense, aquatic ecosystem restoration 
projects located in a disadvantaged community if the project 
cost is not greater than $750,000, not to exceed a total of 
$3,000,000 in any fiscal year. Directs the Secretary to give 
priority to beneficial use projects in the vicinity of Smith 
Point Park Pavilion and TWA Flight 800 Memorial, Brookhaven, 
New York, and Morehead City, North Carolina.

Section 2013. Cost sharing provisions for certain areas

    Amends section 1156 of the Water Resources Development Act 
of 1986 to increase from $250,000 to $500,000 the exemption 
from cost-sharing for the initial costs of studies and projects 
in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the 
Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, United States 
Virgin Islands and on land in the State of Alaska conveyed to 
an Alaska Native Village Corporation under the Alaskan Native 
Claims Settlement Act.

Section 2014. Revision of project partnership agreement

    Directs the Secretary to revise the partnership agreement 
for the project to take into account the change in Federal 
participation in the project, when Congress increases the 
authorization ceiling for a project.

Section 2015. Cost sharing

    Provides that in any case in which Congress increases the 
maximum amount of Federal funds that may be allocated for a 
project or increases the total cost of a project, such increase 
shall not affect any cost-sharing requirement applicable to the 
project.

Section 2016. Credit for work performed before cooperation agreement

    Requires the Secretary to enter into an agreement with a 
non-Federal sponsor for the performance of work eligible for 
credit against the non-Federal sponsor's costs, thereby 
ensuring that Federal standards for the construction of public 
works will apply to these projects.

Section 2017. Recreation user fee revenues

    Amends section 225 of the Water Resources Development Act 
of 1999 to make permanent the provision of law that allows the 
Secretary to retain recreation user fee revenues for use at 
Corps recreation facilities.

Section 2018. Expedited actions for emergency flood damage reduction

    Directs the Secretary to expedite planning, design, and 
construction of a project for flood damage reduction for an 
area that, within the preceding 5 years, has been subject to 
flooding that resulted in the loss of life and caused damage 
sufficient to warrant a declaration of a major disaster by the 
President under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and 
Emergency Assistance Act.

Section 2019. Watershed and river basin assessments

    Amends section 729(f)(1) of the Water Resources Development 
Act of 1986 to provide a 75% Federal share for watershed and 
river basin assessments carried out under that section to 
encourage States and local governments to engage in regional 
planning. This section also adds Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, 
California, to the list of priority basins in section 729(d).

Section 2020. Tribal Partnership Program

    Amends section 203 of the Water Resources Development Act 
of 2000 to make Oklahoma tribes eligible for assistance under 
the Tribal Partnership Program.

Section 2021. Treatment of certain separable elements

    Authorizes the Secretary, during construction of a project, 
to identify opportunities to achieve benefits relating to a 
primary mission of the Corps as a separable project element, 
and carry out that separable element at full Federal expense, 
up to the lesser of $1 million or 3% of project costs, if that 
element would be carried out more cost-effectively in 
conjunction with the ongoing project and can be carried out 
within existing authorization levels.

Section 2022. Prosecution of work

    Authorizes the use of continuing contracts by the Corps of 
Engineers.

Section 2023. Wildfire firefighting

    Adds the Secretary to the existing list of Federal agencies 
authorized to enter into contracts with State and local 
governmental entities, including local fire districts, for 
procurement of services in the presuppression, detection, and 
suppression of fires on any units within their jurisdiction.

Section 2024. Credit for non-construction services

    The Committee has included language in the bill that 
provides generic authority to the Secretary to allow, under 
certain conditions, credit toward the non-Federal share of 
project costs for design and management work performed by a 
non-Federal interest that is compatible with and necessary to 
implement the project. This authority does not apply to 
construction. The Committee has received numerous requests from 
proponents of specific projects to allow non-Federal interests 
to obtain credit for work they perform that advances the 
project. Where a non-Federal interest has an established 
capability, it can often accomplish work faster and at less 
cost than if undertaken by the Corps of Engineers, thus freeing 
the Corps to expedite other aspects of the project. While 
requests for credit have received favorable consideration in 
this legislation and prior water resources legislation, the 
Committee concluded that a general provision allowing credit 
under specified conditions would minimize the need for future 
project-specific provisions and, at the same time, assure 
consistency in considering future proposals for credit. The 
authority to approve such credit applies to any authorized 
water resources development project, regardless of the date of 
project authorization, provided the limitations of this section 
are applied.
    Several limitations are included in this provision to 
assure compatibility with the project, control costs, and 
safeguard the Federal interest. The credit amount cannot exceed 
the non-Federal share of project costs; and allowing credit 
does not obviate the normal requirement that the non-Federal 
interest provide necessary lands, easements, rights-of-way and 
dredged material disposal area. Furthermore, the value of the 
credited amount cannot exceed the Secretary's determination of 
actual and reasonable costs of materials or in-kind services 
that are provided by the non-Federal interest. The non-Federal 
interest may, however, provide such materials and services with 
in-house capabilities or through consultants or other third-
party entities. Finally, while prior approval from the 
Secretary is not required, the non-Federal interest shall not 
be allowed credit for materials and services that are not 
determined by the Secretary to be compatible with and necessary 
for the project.

Section 2025. Technical assistance

    Authorizes the Secretary, upon request of a governmental 
agency or non-Federal interests, to provide technical 
assistance at Federal expense. This assistance may include 
hydrologic, economic and environmental data and analyses and 
may not exceed $5,000,000 a year. This authority will allow the 
Corps of Engineers to participate with State and local 
governments in watershed planning, instead of maintaining a 
narrow focus on individual project areas. Of the amount 
authorized, $2 million may be used for cooperative agreements 
with nonprofit entities to provide assistance to rural and 
small communities. The Committee notes that State rural water 
associations have the capability to carry out these activities. 
Assistance under this section to State rural water associations 
may be combined with assistance provided under the Farm 
Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 and other authorities 
to maximize the ability to provide watershed technical 
assistance to rural and small communities.

Section 2026. Centers of specialized planning expertise

    This section authorizes the Secretary to establish regional 
offices to enhance capabilities of the districts of the Army 
Corps of Engineers and provide technical and managerial 
assistance to district engineers for project planning, 
development, and implementation.
    The Committee supports the Corps of Engineers' continuing 
efforts to transform into an agency that can meet the Nation's 
water resources needs in the 21st Century. The strengthening of 
the Corps planning capabilities is one of the cornerstones of 
this transformation. The Committee endorses the rigorous 
training curriculum the Corps has developed to ensure that 
Corps planners are highly qualified to formulate and evaluate 
project proposals. In cooperation with major universities, the 
Corps has sponsored staff pursuing graduate degrees in water 
resources planning, and has re-instituted the Planning 
Associates Program to ensure an effective planning workforce. 
The Committee also urges the Corps to train planners in multi-
stakeholder planning emphasizing negotiation, consensus 
building, and dispute resolution.
    The Corps should continue the initiatives to improve the 
models used in project evaluations, to strengthen economic 
analysis and the assessment of environmental benefits, and to 
intensify organizational commitments to objective and thorough 
reviews, ensuring that the concept becomes integral to the 
culture of project planning. This section supports the effort 
of the Corps to establish regional centers of expertise that 
will provide state-of-the-art planning expertise for highly 
specialized missions.

Section 2027. Coordination and scheduling of Federal, State, and local 
        actions

    This section authorizes the Secretary to assist in 
consolidation and streamlining of all agency environmental 
assessments, project review, and issuance of permits for the 
construction of non-Federal water supply, wastewater, flood 
control, environmental restoration, and navigation projects 
that require the Secretary's approval, if reimbursed by the 
non-Federal interest. Under this section, if the Secretary is 
responsible for reviewing and issuing an approval for a non-
Federal project, the Secretary may provide a coordinating role 
to facilitate other necessary reviews and approvals. This 
provision is based on the Corps' existing authority under 
section 205 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1986 to 
coordinate Federal, State, and local reviews for non-Federal 
navigation projects.

Section 2028. Project streamlining

    This section authorizes the Secretary to coordinate and 
expedite environmental reviews of proposed water resources 
projects with schedules and early dispute resolution to 
streamline project studies. To achieve this, this section 
directs the Secretary to develop and implement a coordinated 
review process under which all environmental reviews, analyses, 
opinions, permits, licenses, and approvals would be completed 
within a period of time established by the Secretary, in 
cooperation with the agencies participating in the coordinated 
environmental review process. Participation by non-Federal 
agencies is voluntary. If deadlines are not met, this section 
requires the Secretary to notify the Committee, as well as the 
Committee on Environment and Public Works of the Senate, the 
Council on Environmental Quality, and the agency, Indian tribe, 
or non-Federal interest involved in the failure to meet the 
deadline. This section also requires the participating agency, 
Indian tribe, or non-Federal interest that has failed to meet a 
deadline to prepare a report explaining the reasons for the 
failure and what remedial actions will be taken. This report is 
to be submitted to the Secretary, the Committee, the Committee 
on Environment and Public Works of the Senate, and the Council 
on Environmental Quality.
    Under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), 
the Corps of Engineers is the lead Federal agency for the water 
resources projects that it carries out. As such, the Corps of 
Engineers is responsible for defining the purpose and need for 
the proposed water resources project and for determining which 
alternatives for carrying out the project are reasonable and 
may be reasonably anticipated to meet project purposes and 
needs. As the lead Federal agency, the Corps of Engineers also 
has authority under the NEPA regulations issued by the Council 
on Environmental Quality to bring other Federal agencies with 
jurisdiction over the project into the project development 
process early, to resolve issues and disputes in a timely 
fashion. Unfortunately, the Corps of Engineers does not 
regularly use this authority and other Federal agencies often 
do not raise objections until a project study is nearly 
complete, leading to needless delay if the objections must be 
addressed through reformulation of the project. The Committee 
intends that the authority under this section to develop a 
coordinated review process for water resources projects be 
carried out in a fashion that is consistent with these NEPA 
authorities. Nothing in this section preempts or interferes 
with any obligation of the Corps of Engineers to comply with 
NEPA or the CEQ regulations implementing NEPA, or any other 
practice of seeking public comment, or any other power, 
jurisdiction, or authority with respect to carrying out a water 
resources project.
    Finally, this section directs the Chief of Engineers to 
establish benchmarks for determining the length of time it 
should take to complete various elements of a feasibility 
study. The Committee recognizes that not all projects are 
uniform and studies may takevarying lengths of time, depending 
on the scope and complexity. At the same time, much of what the Corps 
of Engineers does is not novel, and each project should not be 
developed as a completely new endeavor, as if no similar project had 
ever been developed before. Benchmarks established under this section 
are not binding, but should be used as a management tool to encourage 
efficiency at all Corps districts.

Section 2029. Lakes program

    Adds the following lakes to the list of lakes at which the 
Secretary is authorized to carry out programs for the removal 
of silt and other material under Section 602 of the Water 
Resources Development Act of 1986.
    (1) Kinkaid Lake, Jackson County, Illinois.
    (2) Rogers Pond, Franklin Township, New Jersey.
    (3) Greenwood Lake, New York.
    (4) Lake Rogers, North Carolina.

Section 2030. Mitigation for fish and wildlife losses

    This section amends section 906(a) of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 1986 to require completion of all mitigation 
no later than one fiscal year after completion of the project 
where such mitigation is not undertaken in advance or 
concurrently. This section also amends section 906(d) to 
identify the elements to be included in the specific mitigation 
plan that already is required under that section. The specific 
mitigation plan must include a description of the physical 
action to be undertaken. The plan also must include a 
description of the lands or interests in lands to be acquired 
for mitigation, and the basis for a determination that such 
lands are available. This description is not intended to be a 
description of the specific property interests. The Committee 
expects the mitigation plan to identify the quantity and type 
of lands needed, and include a determination that lands of such 
quantity and type are available for acquisition. The plan also 
must include the type, amount, and characteristics of the 
habitat to be restored. The plan must include success criteria 
based on replacement of lost functions and values of the 
habitat, including hydrologic and vegetative characteristics. 
Finally, if monitoring is necessary to determine success of the 
mitigation, the plan must include a plan for monitoring and to 
the extent practicable, identification of the entities 
responsible for monitoring. As monitoring is part of operation 
and maintenance of a project, in most cases the entity 
responsible for any monitoring will be the non-Federal sponsor. 
If such person is not identifiable at the time the mitigation 
plan is prepared under this section, such person must be 
identified in the partnership agreement entered into with the 
non-Federal interest.
    The Committee supports more specificity in Corps reporting 
documents concerning expected mitigation efforts. Such 
increased specificity will better inform the Congress, the non-
Federal sponsor, and the public as to planned mitigation 
efforts and the likely success of these efforts. This section 
also directs the Secretary to submit to Congress a report on 
the status of mitigation concurrent with the submission of 
reports on the status of project construction, as part of the 
President's budget submission.

Section 2031. Cooperative agreements

    Authorizes the Secretary to enter into cooperative 
agreements with nonprofit organizations to carry out wetlands 
restoration at authorized projects, limited to $1 million per 
project and $5 million per year.

Section 2032. Project planning

    Subsection (a) of this section establishes the Federal 
objective for economic, ecosystem restoration, and multi-
purpose projects. For economic projects (flood control, 
navigation, and hurricane and storm damage reduction) the 
Federal objective is to maximize net national economic 
development benefits, consistent with protecting the Nation's 
environment. This objective is consistent with the Economic and 
Environmental Principles and Guidelines for Water and Related 
Land Resources Implementation Studies, issued by the Water 
Resources Council in 1983.
    For ecosystem restoration projects the Federal objective is 
to maximize net national ecosystem restoration benefits 
associated with the project, consistent with net national 
economic development. This objective is consistent with 
existing Corps policy for identifying a National Ecosystem 
Restoration (NER) plan. The requirement that an NER plan be 
consistent with net national economic development does not 
change existing law under which the costs of ecosystem 
restoration are deemed to be equal to the benefits. Rather, 
this subsection codifies existing policy that requires the 
Corps of Engineers to develop NER plans that are cost-effective 
and justified incrementally such that additional increments 
added to the plan increase the nonmonetary values gained.
    For multi-purpose projects, each purpose shall be evaluated 
based on the relevant Federal objective, with the economic 
element meeting the objective for economic projects and the 
ecosystem restoration element meeting the objective for 
ecosystem restoration projects.
    Subsection (a) also authorizes the Secretary to select 
project alternatives that do not maximize net benefits 
associated with the primary project purpose if there is an 
overriding reason based on other Federal, State, local or 
international concerns. This flexibility also is found in the 
Principles and Guidelines, however, the Secretary rarely uses 
it. To encourage consideration of project alternatives that are 
feasible but may not maximize net benefits, this subsection 
specifically authorizes the Secretary to select an alternative 
for an economic project that the Secretary determines, and the 
non-Federal interest agrees, provides greater ecosystem 
restoration benefits. Similarly, this subsection specifically 
authorizes the Secretary to select an alternative for an 
ecosystem restoration project that the Secretary determines, 
and the non-Federal interest agrees, provides greater economic 
development benefits.
    Subsection (b) of this section authorizes the Secretary to 
study and identify additional benefits when formulating a water 
resources project beyond the primary project purpose. However, 
the scope of the study must still be consistent with the study 
authorization. In addition, the Secretary must obtain the 
willing participation of a cost-sharing non-Federal interest 
both for the expanded study, as well as any construction, if a 
separable project or project element is subsequently 
authorized. The Secretary may not require a non-Federal 
interest to participate as a cost-sharing partner in the study 
or construction of a separable project or project element as a 
condition of participation in a water resources project.
    Subsection (c) directs the Secretary to calculate residual 
flood risks and upstream or downstream impacts when studying a 
project for flood damage reduction, and requires equitable 
treatment of structural and nonstructural alternatives. This 
subsection also directs the Secretary to ensure that there is 
no bias when evaluating structural and nonstructural 
alternatives.

Section 2033. Independent peer review

    The Committee has considered carefully the views of 
interested parties on the application of peer review to Corps 
of Engineers studies and projects. There have been many calls 
for independent peer review as a means of ensuring that Federal 
agency decision-making is based on sound science and economics. 
These recommendations have been developed by agencies 
themselves, by scientific organizations such as the National 
Academy of Sciences, and by interest groups. In addition, the 
Office of Management and Budget recently has placed an 
increased emphasis on peer review.
    On March 5, 2003, the Subcommittee on Water Resources and 
the Environment held a hearing on ``Independent Peer Review of 
Products that Support Agency Decision-Making.'' The 
Subcommittee received testimony from the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency, the Department of the Interior, the U.S. 
Army Corps of Engineers, a representative of the National 
Research Council, a representative of waterways users (MARC 
2000), a representative of the American Enterprise Institute, a 
representative of American Rivers, and a representative of a 
consulting group that conducts peer reviews. This testimony 
disclosed that Federal agencies conduct peer reviews in 
different ways and view it as a useful tool appropriate for 
some, but not all circumstances. The testimony from other 
stakeholders disclosed divergent views over whether peer 
reviews of Corps of Engineers studies would be beneficial or 
harmful to water resources projects and how such reviews should 
be carried out.
    As a result, the Committee has proceeded cautiously on the 
issue of peer review of Corps of Engineers studies and has 
established in this section a peer review process that will 
apply to certain studies that are initiated within 4 years 
after the date of enactment of this section, as well as certain 
ongoing studies that are early in the study process. After four 
and a half years, the Chief of Engineers must submit a report 
to Congress on the experience with peer reviews under this 
section. This report will allow the Committee to evaluate the 
merits of peer review based on actual information and 
experience and determine if additional legislative action 
should be taken.
    Under the peer review process established under this 
section, the Chief of Engineers must subject a project study to 
independent peer review if the project has an estimated total 
cost of more than $50,000,000, at the time of the completion of 
the reconnaissance study. Some stakeholders have expressed 
concern that a monetary threshold is an arbitrary basis for 
determining what studies would benefit from peer review and 
could create additional delays and costs by subjecting to peer 
review studies that are routine or otherwise noncontroversial. 
Based on previous authorizations, the $50,000,000 cost 
threshold may include as many as 30% of project studies. 
However, a far smaller percentage of studies have been 
controversial, and even fewer studies have been found to have 
significant problems.
    To address these concerns, this section authorizes the 
Chief of Engineers to exempt certain studies from review. 
Specifically, the Chief of Engineers may exclude a study from 
review if the Chief determines that the study is for a project 
that is not controversial; has no more than negligible adverse 
impacts on scarce or unique cultural, historic, or tribal 
resources; has no substantial adverse impacts on fish and 
wildlife species and their habitat prior to implementation of 
mitigation measures; and has, before implementation of 
mitigation measures, no more than a negligible adverse impact 
on a species listed as endangered or threatened species under 
the Endangered Species Act of 1973, or the critical habitat of 
such species. By using the adjective ``substantial'' for 
determining the scope of the adverse impact on fish and 
wildlife species, the Committee intends to establish a 
threshold that is higher than the existing threshold of 
``significant'' impact used under the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 for determining whether an environmental 
impact statement is necessary. By using the phrase ``more than 
a negligible adverse impact'' for determining the scope of the 
impact on an endangered species, the Committee intends to 
establish a threshold that is higher than the existing 
threshold of ``likely affect'' used under section 7 of the 
Endangered Species Act of 1973 to trigger consultation. In 
addition, all studies for projects pursued under one of the 
Corps of Engineers' continuing authorities may be excluded from 
peer review.
    Other stakeholders have expressed concern that a monetary 
threshold may exclude a study from review that is below the 
cost threshold, but may benefit from a peer review. To address 
this issue, the Chief retains the discretion to subject any 
study to independent peer review that the Chief determines is 
controversial. In addition, the Governor of a State that would 
be affected by a project, and the head of a Federal or State 
agency that determines the project is likely to have a 
significant adverse impact on environmental, cultural, or other 
resources within the jurisdiction of the agency after the 
implementation of mitigation, may request that a project study 
be subject to peer review by an independent panel. A decision 
by the Chief of Engineers whether to agree to a request to peer 
review a study may be appealed to the Secretary of the Army.
    The Committee heard concerns from some stakeholders that 
peer reviews could have the unintended consequence of delaying 
a project study, because of the time neededto address any 
concerns raised by reviewers. To address this matter, this section 
gives the Chief of Engineers substantial discretion regarding when 
during the course of a study a peer review should take place. The Chief 
may initiate the peer review at any time following completion of the 
reconnaissance study for the project. As a result, a peer review under 
this section may be a review of the models and methods to be used to 
evaluate project alternatives, rather than a review of a completed 
analysis. If problems are discovered at this stage of the study, they 
may be corrected before significant time and resources are expended on 
using flawed models or methods to analyze project alternatives.
    Generally, a review shall take no longer than 180 days and 
shall not exceed $500,000, but the Chief is given the 
discretion to allow a longer period of time for the review and 
to waive the cost limitation. If a study is subject to review, 
and no review has yet taken place when one of the following 
milestones is reached, the Chief must consider whether to 
initiate the peer review at that time: (1) when the Corps 
identifies the conditions that will occur if the project is not 
built (the without project conditions), (2) when the array of 
alternatives to be considered is identified, and (3) when the 
preferred alternative is identified. If a review has already 
been initiated when one of these milestones is reached, the 
Chief has no obligation to consider any additional peer review. 
No matter when it is initiated, in all cases a peer review 
under this section must be completed no later than 90 days 
after the date a draft study is made available for public 
review.
    Under this section a peer review panel must be established 
by the National Academy of Sciences, a similar independent 
scientific technical advisory organization, or a non-profit 
organization that is free from conflicts of interest and has 
experience in establishing and administering peer review 
panels, pursuant to a contract with the Chief of Engineers. The 
members of the panels must be independent, free from conflict 
of interest and must represent a balance of expertise suitable 
for the review being conducted.
    A panel shall review a study for technical and scientific 
sufficiency and, consistent with the scope of the referral for 
review and the stage of the study at which the review takes 
place, shall assess the adequacy and acceptability of the 
economic and environmental methods, models, and analyses used 
in the study. The panel must provide timely written and oral 
comments, as requested, and must submit a report to the Chief 
of Engineers at the conclusion of the peer review. The Chief of 
Engineers must respond to the peer review report and both the 
report and the Chief's response must be made available to the 
public and transmitted to Congress.
    With this section, the Committee intends to provide the 
Chief of Engineers with a tool that will improve the Corps' 
planning process and result in a greater number of successful 
water resources projects. The Committee does not intend peer 
review to be used as a tool to delay or halt projects.

                           Additional Matters

    The water levels of the Great Lakes are cyclical, rising 
and falling as temperature and precipitation patterns naturally 
change over the years. Currently, the level of Lake Huron is in 
a low period, exposing muck and vegetation that can be both 
unhealthy and unsightly. This exposed lake bottom also can 
serve as a breeding ground for mosquitoes. The Committee is 
aware that some owners of property on Lake Huron, in Saginaw 
Bay, have tried to clean up this muck and vegetation. As a 
result of these beach maintenance activities, the Corps of 
Engineers has issued cease and desist orders and threatened 
some landowners with penalties under section 404 of the Clean 
Water Act and section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act. In 
fact, the Detroit District informed this Committee, ``[I]n an 
effort to keep such unauthorized work from spreading across the 
entire Saginaw Bay, we secured assistance from the US Attorneys 
Office to take action against three, randomly chosen parties,'' 
threatening criminal penalties.
    The Committee is concerned about how the Detroit District 
chose to address this situation. The Committee directs the 
Corps of Engineers to continue to examine its enforcement 
measures, and emphasize education and compliance assistance to 
carry out its regulatory responsibilities.
    The Committee is aware that in May 2003, the Secretary 
issued a regional permit concerning the leveling of sand. The 
Secretary has determined that certain other maintenance 
activities of these landowners are not regulated activities 
(such as mowing, debris removal, or other de minimis 
activities). Notwithstanding this progress, the Committee 
remains concerned about this issue. Where there are other beach 
maintenance activities that may be subject to regulation, the 
Committee directs the Corps of Engineers to work with the 
property owners to minimize the effects of such activities and 
bring them within the scope of a general or regional permit.
    In section 2027, discussed above, this legislation provides 
the Secretary with authority to coordinate Federal, State, and 
local approvals for certain water-related non-Federal projects. 
In section 2028, also discussed above, this legislation 
provides for a coordinated process for the review and approval 
of Corps of Engineers water resources projects. Under these 
sections, the Corps of Engineers is expected to demonstrate 
leadership and facilitate the coordination of the activities of 
many agencies. However, there are other projects that are not 
water projects and for which the Corps of Engineers must 
provide an approval, but is not the lead agency. For these 
projects, the Committee expects the Corps of Engineers to 
cooperate with other agencies and to help the lead agency 
streamline any necessary reviews and approvals. Unfortunately, 
the Committee is aware of circumstances where the Corps of 
Engineers has not done so.
    For example, where a permit application is subject to a 
rigorous and comprehensive State environmental review process 
that includes adjudicatory hearings, a parallel Federal process 
may be duplicative, time consuming and unnecessary. This is 
especially true in cases where a State environmental review 
process substantially meets or exceeds the scope of issues that 
would be reviewed under Federal law. In such cases, the Corps 
of Engineers should consider using existing, credible 
documentation and expeditiously conclude the environmental 
review of publicly noticed applications. For example, in the 
case of a permit application for a cement supply-loading 
terminal in Hudson, New York, the State of New York has 
conducted a 3-year comprehensive environmental review of the 
proposed project. The Corps' decision on the permit application 
could be based on the information provided in the State's 
review thus avoiding duplicative studies and expediting the 
decision.
    The Committee also is aware of a permit application that is 
pending for the Islander East Interstate Natural Pipeline from 
Connecticut to Long Island. After an extensive review, this 
project has received approval from the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission (FERC). The New England District of the 
Corps of Engineers, however, has said that it will use a 
different definition of the project purpose in its analysis of 
the project, even though FERC is the lead Federal agency for 
this project and extensively reviewed this issue during their 
approval process. The Corps' actions are contrary to the 
Committee's objective to streamline approvals of needed 
infrastructure. The Corps should defer to the project purpose 
as determined by the lead Federal agency, in this case FERC.
    Finally, the Committee also is aware of problems with an 
invasive aquatic species known as tamarisk, or salt cedar, that 
is using 2 to 4.5 million acre-feet of water in reservoirs on 
the West Coast. The Corps of Engineers has a great deal of 
expertise in aquatic plant control through its Aquatic Plant 
Control Research Program. The Committee encourages the Corps to 
look for opportunities to use this program to assist with the 
control of tamarisk.

                                 Washington, DC, September 3, 2003.
Hon. Don Young,
Chairman, Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 2557, the Water 
Resources Development Act of 2003.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Rachel 
Milberg.
            Sincerely,
                                       Douglas Holtz-Eakin,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.

H.R. 2557--Water Resources Development Act of 2003

    Summary: H.R. 2557 would authorize the Secretary of the 
Army, acting through the Army Corps of Engineers, to conduct 
water resource studies and undertake specified projects and 
programs for flood control, inland navigation, shoreline 
protection, and environmental restoration. The bill would 
authorize the Secretary to conduct studies on water resource 
needs and feasibility studies for specified projects and to 
convey ownership of certain federal properties. Finally, the 
bill would extend, terminate, or modify existing authorizations 
for various water projects and would authorize new programs to 
develop water resources and protect the environment.
    Assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, including 
adjustments for increases in anticipated inflation, CBO 
estimates that implementing H.R. 2557 would cost about $2.6 
billion over the 2004-2008 period and an additional $2.1 
billion over the 10 years after 2008. (Some construction costs 
and operations and maintenance would continue or occur after 
those first 15 years.) In addition, CBO estimates that enacting 
H.R. 2557 would increase direct spending by $17 million over 
the 2004-2008 period and by $32 million over the 2004-2013 
period.
    H.R. 2557 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA). 
Federal participation in water resources projects and programs 
authorized by this bill would benefit state, local, and tribal 
governments, and any costs incurred by those governments to 
comply with the conditions of this federal assistance would be 
voluntary.
    Estimated cost to the Federal Government: The estimated 
budgetary impact of H.R. 2557 is shown in the following table. 
The costs of this legislation fall within budget function 300 
(natural resources and the environment).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Basis of estimate: For this estimate, CBO assumes that H.R. 
2557 will be enacted near the beginning of fiscal year 2004 and 
that the necessary amounts will be appropriated for each fiscal 
year.

Spending subject to appropriation

    For new water projects specified in the bill, the Corps 
provided CBO with estimates of annual budget authority needed 
to meet design and construction schedules. CBO adjusted those 
estimates to reflect the impact of anticipated inflation during 
the time between project authorization and appropriation of 
construction costs. Estimated outlays are based on historical 
spending rates for Corps projects. For ongoing construction 
costs of previously authorized projects, the Corps received a 
2003 appropriation of $1.8 billion.
    H.R. 2557 would authorize new projects related to 
environmental restoration, shoreline protection, and 
navigation. Two of the larger projects that would be authorized 
by the bill include a project for hurricane and storm damage 
reduction in Louisiana with an estimated federal cost of $467 
million and a project to reduce flood damage and restore the 
environment in California with an estimated federal cost of 
$201 million. In addition, this bill would modify many existing 
Corps projects and programs by increasing the amounts 
authorized to be appropriated to construct or maintain them or 
by increasing the federal share of project costs. For example, 
section 2003 would authorize an increase in the federal share 
of the construction, operations, and maintenance of some 
deepwater navigation projects. CBO estimates that this 
provision would increase federal costs by about $70 million 
over the 2004-2008 period. In the 10-year period after 2008, 
however, the cost of this provision could increase by over $30 
million a year, subject to the availability of appropriated 
funds for deepwater navigation projects.
    H.R. 2557 also would withdraw the authority for the Corps 
to build over 30 projects authorized in previous legislation. 
Based on information from the Corps, however, CBO does not 
expect that the Corps would begin most of these projects over 
the next five years. Some do not have a local sponsor to pay 
nonfederal costs, others do not pass certain tests for economic 
viability, and still others do not pass certain tests for 
environmental protection. Consequently, CBO estimates that 
taking away the authority to build these projects would provide 
no significant savings over the next several years.

Direct spending

    CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 2557 would increase direct 
spending by $17 million over the 2004-2008 period and by about 
$3 million each year after 2008. Components of this cost are 
described below.
    Spending of Recreation Fees. Section 2017 would permanently 
authorize the Corps to retain and spend annual recreation fees 
collected in excess of $34 million a year. The Corps' authority 
to retain and spend those fees expired at the end of fiscal 
year 2002. CBO estimates that this extension would cost about 
$3 million a year.
    Rathbun Lake Project. Section 5046 would authorize the 
Secretary to convey a certain portion of the water supply 
storage capacity of Rathbun Lake to the Rathbun Regional Water 
Association. In exchange, the water association would fund, 
construct, operate, and maintain a regional visitor center 
complex on federal land at Rathbun Lake in Iowa. CBO estimates 
that enacting this section would cost about $2 million in 2004 
because the Corps would forgo receipts that the Rathbun 
Regional Water Association would otherwise have to pay for the 
unallocated water supply storage.
    Waurika Lake Project. Section 5076 would eliminate the 
obligation of the Waurika Project Master Conservancy District 
in Oklahoma to pay its outstanding debt related to the 
construction of a water conveyance project. Due to an 
accounting error, the Corps inadvertently undercharged the 
district for costs association with a land purchase related to 
the water project in the early 1980s. Under the terms of the 
construction contract, the district is required to pay all 
costs associated with building the project, including the full 
cost of the land purchases. CBO estimates that enacting this 
section would cost less than $200,000 a year over the 2004-2013 
period.
    Annual Passes for Recreation--Raystown Lake, Pennsylvania. 
Section 2001 would extend for one year a pilot project that 
allows the Corps to charge lower fees at its Raystown Lake 
recreation facility in Pennsylvania by one year. CBO estimates 
that extending the program until December 31, 2004, would cost 
less than $100,000 over the next two years.
    Funding to Process Permits. Section 2004 would extend the 
Corps' current authority for two more years to accept and spend 
funds contributed by private firms to expedite the evaluation 
of permit applications submitted to the Corps. CBO estimates 
that the Corps would accept and spend less than $500,000 during 
each year of this extension and that the net budgetary impact 
of this provision would be negligible.
    Elizabeth River Project. Section 3089 would eliminate the 
obligation of the city of Chesapeake, Virginia, to pay its 
outstanding debt to the federal government related to the 
construction of a navigation channel. Section 358 of the Water 
Resources Development Act of 1999 waived the city's obligation 
to repay its share of the cost of construction of the channel 
that remained unpaid as of September 30, 1999. That act, 
however, did not eliminate the city's responsibility to pay 
those amounts in arrears prior to September 30, 1999. CBO 
estimates that the cost of this additional debt forgiveness 
would be less than $500,000 in 2004.
    Cumberland River Basin Reservoirs. Section 5047 would 
authorize the Corps to continue to charge certain reservoir 
projects in Kentucky and Tennessee reduced rates on municipal 
and industrial water supply storage. CBO estimates that 
enacting this provision would result in a loss of about $25,000 
in receipts each year to the Corps.
    Various Land Conveyances. H.R. 2557 would authorize the 
Corps to convey certain lands in Kansas and Oregon. Section 
3098 would authorize the Corps to convey 7.4 acres to Geary 
County, Kansas, for the construction, operation, and 
maintenance of a fire station. In addition, section 5080 would 
authorize the Corps and the U.S. Forest Service to convey 
approximately three acres of land and buildings in Lowell, 
Oregon, to the Lowell School District. CBO estimates that those 
conveyances would have no significant impact on the federal 
budget.
    Intergovernmental and private-sector impact: H.R. 2557 
contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as 
defined in UMRA. Federal participation in water resources 
projects and programs authorized by this bill would benefit 
state, local, and tribal governments. Governments that choose 
to participate in those projects would incur costs to comply 
with the conditions of the federal assistance, including cost-
sharing requirements, but such costs would be voluntary. In 
addition, some state and local governments participating in 
ongoing water resources projects would benefit from provisions 
in the bill that would alter existing cost-sharing obligations. 
Many of those provisions would make it easier for nonfederal 
participants to meet their obligations by giving them credit 
for expenses they have already incurred or by expanding the 
types of expenditures counted as part of the nonfederal share.

        projects within a geographic region if appropriate, for 
        the acquisition, design, construction, management, or 
        operation of a dredged material processing, treatment, 
        contaminant reduction, or disposal facility (including 
        any facility used to demonstrate potential beneficial 
        uses of dredged material, which may include effective 
        sediment contaminant reduction technologies) using 
        funds provided in whole or in part by the Federal 
        Government. One or more of the parties of the agreement 
        may perform the acquisition, design, construction, 
        management, or operation of a dredged material 
        processing, treatment, or disposal facility. If 
        appropriate, the Secretary may combine portions of 
        separate construction or maintenance appropriations 
        from separate Federal projects with the appropriate 
        combined cost-sharing between the various projects when 
        the facility serves to manage dredged material from 
        multiple Federal projects located in the geographic 
        region of the facility.
          (2) Public financing.--
                  (A) Agreements.--
                          (i) Specified federal funding sources 
                        and cost sharing.--The cost-sharing 
                        agreement used shall clearly specify 
                        the Federal funding sources and 
                        combined cost-sharing when applicable 
                        to multiple Federal navigation projects 
                        and the responsibilities and risks of 
                        each of the parties related to present 
                        and future dredged material managed by 
                        the facility.
                          (ii) Management of sediments.--The 
                        cost-sharing agreement may include the 
                        management of sediments from the 
                        maintenance dredging of Federal 
                        navigation projects that do not have 
                        partnership agreements. The cost-
                        sharing agreement may allow the non-
                        Federal sponsor to receive reimbursable 
                        payments from the Federal Government 
                        for commitments made by the sponsor for 
                        disposal or placement capacity at 
                        dredged material treatment, processing, 
                        contaminant reduction, or disposal 
                        facilities.
                          (iii) Credit.--The cost-sharing 
                        agreement may allow costs incurred 
                        prior to execution of a partnership 
                        agreement for construction or the 
                        purchase of equipment or capacity for 
                        the project to be credited according to 
                        existing cost-sharing rules.
                  (B) Credit.--Nothing in this subsection 
                supersedes or modifies existing agreements 
                between the Federal Government and any non-
                Federal sponsors for the cost-sharing, 
                construction, and operation and maintenance of 
                Federal navigation projects. Subject to the 
                approval of the Secretary and in accordance 
                with existing laws, regulations, and policies, 
                a non-Federal public sponsor of a Federal 
                navigation project may seek credit for funds 
                provided in the acquisition, design, 
                construction, management, or operation of a 
                dredged material processing, treatment, or 
                disposal facility to the extent the facility is 
                used to manage dredged material from the

              SECTION 221 OF THE FLOOD CONTROL ACT OF 1970

  Sec. 221. (a) After the date of enactment of this Act, the 
construction of any water resources project, or an acceptable 
separable element thereof, by the Secretary of the Army, acting 
through the Chief of Engineers, or by a non-Federal interest 
where such interest will be reimbursed for such construction 
[under the provisions of section 215 of the Flood Control Act 
of 1968 or under any other] under any provision of law, shall 
not be commenced until each non-Federal interest has entered 
into a written partnership agreement with the [Secretary of the 
Army to furnish its required cooperation for] district engineer 
for the district in which the project will be carried out under 
which each party agrees to carry out its responsibilities and 
requirements for implementation or construction of the project; 
except that no such agreement shall be required if the 
Secretary determines that the administrative costs associated 
with negotiating, executing, or administering the agreement 
would exceed the amount of the contribution required from the 
non-Federal interest and are less than $25,000. Such agreement 
may include a provision for liquidated damages in the event of 
a failure of one or more parties to perform. In any such 
agreement entered into by a State, or a body politic of the 
State which derives its powers from the State constitution, or 
a governmental entity created by the State legislature, the 
agreement may reflect that it does not obligate future State 
legislative appropriations for such performance and payment 
when obligating future appropriations would be inconsistent 
with State constitutional or statutory limitations.

           *       *       *       *       *       *       *

  (e) Limitation.--Nothing in subsection (a) shall be construed 
as limiting the authority of the Secretary to ensure that a 
partnership agreement meets all requirements of law and 
policies of the Secretary in effect on the date of entry into 
the partnership agreement.
  [(e)] (f) This section shall not apply to any project the 
construction of which was commenced before January 1, 1972, or 
to the assurances for future demands required by the Water 
Supply Act of 1958, as amended.

percent of the cost of operation, maintenance, replacement, and 
rehabilitation of the project in accordance with section 103 of 
the Water Resources Development Act of 1986 (33 U.S.C. 2213).
  (e) Special Rule.--Construction of a project under subsection

ecologically related habitat the cost of which does not exceed 
$750,000 and which will be located in a disadvantaged community 
as determined by the Secretary may be carried out at Federal 
expense.
  (f) Determination of Construction Costs.--Costs associated 
with construction of a project under this section shall be 
limited solely to construction costs that are in excess of 
those costs necessary to carry out the dredging for 
construction, operation, or maintenance of the authorized 
navigation project in the most cost effective way, consistent

be appropriated $30,000,000 annually for projects under this 
section of which not more than $3,000,000 annually may be used 
for construction of projects described in subsection (e). Such 
sums shall remain available until expended.
  (j) Regional Sediment Management Planning.--In consultation 
with appropriate State and Federal agencies, the Secretary may 
develop, at Federal expense, plans for regional management of 
material dredged in conjunction with the construction, 
operation, or maintenance of navigation projects, including 
potential beneficial uses of dredged material for construction,

                        Committee Correspondence

                          House of Representatives,
                                    Committee on Resources,
                                 Washington, DC, September 4, 2003.
Hon. Don Young,
Chairman, Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure,
Rayburn HOB, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: I have reviewed H.R. 2557, the Water 
Resources Development Act of 2003, as ordered reported by the 
Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. I believe that 
the Committee on Resources has a substantial jurisdictional 
interest in many provisions of this important legislation 
affecting fish and wildlife, environmental review and 
coordination, ecosystem restoration and Native Americans.
    Recognizing that the House of Representatives has a 
dwindling number of legislative days left before the first 
session of 108th Congress ends, I will forego seeking a 
sequential referral of H.R. 2557. Waiving the Committee on 
Resources' right to a referral in this case does not waive the 
Committee's jurisdiction over any provision in H.R. 2557 or 
similar provisions in other bills. In addition, I ask that you 
support my request to have the Committee on Resources 
represented on the conference on this bill, if a conference is 
necessary. Finally, I ask that you include this letter in the 
report accompanying H.R. 2557.
    I appreciate your leadership on this bill and I look 
forward to working with you on H.R. 2557.
            Sincerely,
                                          Richard W. Pombo,
                                                          Chairman.
                                ------                                

                          House of Representatives,
            Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure,
                                 Washington, DC, September 5, 2003.
Hon. Richard W. Pombo,
Chairman, Committee on Resources,
Longworth Building, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: Thank you for your letter of September 
4, 2003, regarding H.R. 2557, the Water Resources Development 
Act of 2003, and for your willingness to waive consideration of 
the provisions in the bill that fall within your Committee's 
jurisdiction under House Rules.
    I agree that your waiving consideration of this provision 
of H.R. 2557 does not waive your Committee's jurisdiction over 
the bill. I also acknowledge your right to seek conferees on 
any provisions that are under your Committee's jurisdiction 
during any House-Senate conference on H.R. 2557 or similar 
legislation, and will support your request for conferees on 
such provisions.
    As you request, your letter and this response will be 
included in the Committee report on the legislation.
    Thank you for your cooperation in moving this important 
legislation to the House Floor.
            Sincerely,
                                                 Don Young,
                                                          Chairman.
