SEC. 215. DAM SAFETY PROGRAM.

    (a) Short Title.--This section may be cited as the ``National Dam 
Safety Program Act of 1996''.
    (b) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) Dams are an essential part of the national 
        infrastructure. Dams fail from time to time with catastrophic 
        results; thus, dam safety is a vital public concern.
            (2) Dam failures have caused, and can cause in the future, 
        enormous loss of life, injury, destruction of property, and 
        economic and social disruption.
            (3) Some dams are at or near the end of their structural, 
        useful, or operational life. With respect to future dam 
        failures, the loss, destruction, and disruption can be 
        substantially reduced through the development and 
        implementation of dam safety hazard reduction measures, 
        including--
                    (A) improved design and construction standards and 
                practices supported by a national dam performance 
                resource bank;
                    (B) safe operations and maintenance procedures;
                    (C) early warning systems;
                    (D) coordinated emergency preparedness plans; and
                    (E) public awareness and involvement programs.
            (4) Dam safety problems persist nationwide. The diversity 
        in Federal and State dam safety programs calls for national 
        leadership in a cooperative effort involving Federal and State 
        governments and the private sector. An expertly staffed and 
        adequately financed dam safety hazard reduction program, based 
        on Federal, State, local, and private research, planning, 
        decisionmaking, and contributions, would reduce the risk of 
        such loss, destruction, and disruption from dam failure by an 
        amount far greater than the cost of such program.
            (5) There is a fundamental need for a national dam safety 
        program and the need will continue. An effective national 
        program in dam safety hazards reduction will require input from 
        and review by Federal and non-Federal experts in dams design, 
        construction, operation, and maintenance and in the practical 
        application of dam failure hazards reduction measures. At the 
        present time, there is no national dam safety program.
            (6) The coordinating authority for national leadership is 
        provided through the Federal Emergency Management Agency's 
        (hereinafter in this section referred to as ``FEMA'') dam 
        safety program through Executive Order 12148 in coordination 
        with appropriate Federal agencies and the States.
            (7) While FEMA's dam safety program shall continue as a 
        proper Federal undertaking and shall provide the foundation for 
        a National Dam Safety Program, statutory authority to meet 
increasing needs and to discharge Federal responsibilities in national 
dam safety is needed.
            (8) Statutory authority will strengthen FEMA's leadership 
        role, will codify the national dam safety program, and will 
        authorize the Director of FEMA (hereinafter in this section 
        referred to as the ``Director'') to communicate directly with 
        Congress on authorizations and appropriations and to build upon 
        the hazard reduction aspects of national dam safety.
    (c) Purpose.--It is the purpose of this section to reduce the risks 
to life and property from dam failure in the United States through the 
establishment and maintenance of an effective national dam safety 
program which will bring together the Federal and non-Federal 
communities' expertise and resources to achieve national dam safety 
hazard reduction. It is not the intent of this section to preempt any 
other Federal or State authorities nor is the intent of this section to 
mandate State participation in the grant assistance program to be 
established under this section.
    (d) Definitions.--In this section, the following definitions apply:
            (1) Federal agency.--The term ``Federal agency'' means any

        materials for the purpose of storage or control of water which 
        is--
                    (A) 25 feet or more in height from (i) the natural 
                bed of the stream or watercourse measured at the 
                downstream toe of the barrier, or (ii) from the lowest 
                elevation of the outside limit of the barrier if the 
                barrier is not across a stream channel or watercourse, 
                to the maximum water storage elevation; or
                    (B) has an impounding capacity for maximum storage 
                elevation of 50 acre-feet or more.
        Such term does not include any such barrier which is not 
        greater than 6 feet in height regardless of storage capacity or 
        which has a storage capacity at maximum water storage elevation 
        not greater than 15 acre-feet regardless of height, unless such 
        barrier, due to its location or other physical characteristics, 
        is likely to pose a significant threat to human life or

                        Board.
                    (D) Maintenance of effort.--No grant may be made to 
                a participating State under this subsection in any 
                fiscal year unless the State enters into such agreement 
                with the Director as the Director may require to ensure 
                that the participating State will maintain its 
                aggregate expenditures from all other sources for

                submitted program fails to reasonably meet the 
                requirements of subparagraphs (A) and (B). If the 
                Director determines the submitted program cannot be 
                approved for participation, the Director shall 
                immediately notify the State in writing, together with 
                his or her reasons and those changes needed to enable

                State has proven inadequate to reasonably protect human 
                life and property and the Director agrees, the Director 
                shall revoke approval of the State's participation in 
                the assistance program and withhold assistance under 
                this section, until the State program has been 
                reapproved.
                    (G) Cooperation of federal agencies.--The head of 
                any Federal agency, when requested by any State dam 
                safety agency, shall provide information on the 
                construction, operation, or maintenance of any dam or 
                allow officials of the State agency to participate in 
                any Federal inspection of any dam.
                    (H) Dam insurance report.--Within 180 days after 
                the date of the enactment of this Act, the Director 
                shall report to the Congress on the availability of dam 
                insurance and make recommendations.

odd-numbered fiscal year, the Director shall submit a biennial report 
to Congress describing the status of the program being implemented 
under this section and describing the progress achieved by the Federal 
agencies during the 2 previous years in implementing the Federal 
Guidelines for Dam Safety. Each such report shall include any 
recommendations for legislative and other action deemed necessary and

                which the Secretary determines has not been used 
                sufficiently to justify retaining the vessel in such 
                status.
                    ``(B) Increase in assignments of dredging work.--
                For each fiscal year beginning after the date of the

SEC. 569. PIERCE COUNTY, WASHINGTON.

    (a) Technical Assistance.--The Secretary shall provide technical 
assistance to Pierce County, Washington, to address measures that are 
necessary to assure that non-Federal levees are adequately maintained 
and satisfy eligibility criteria for rehabilitation assistance under 
section 5 of the Act entitled ``An Act authorizing the construction of 
certain public works on rivers and harbors for flood control, and for 
other purposes'', approved August 18, 1941 (33 U.S.C. 701n; 55 Stat.

non-Federal levees eligible for assistance that may be necessary as a 
result of future flooding.
    (b) Levee Rehabilitation.--The Secretary shall expedite a review to 
determine the extent to which requirements of the Puyallup Tribe of 
Indians Settlement Act of 1989 limited the ability of non-Federal 
interests to adequately maintain existing non-Federal levees that were 
damaged by flooding in 1995 and 1996 and, to the extent that such 
ability was limited by such Act, the Secretary shall carry out the 
rehabilitation of such levees.

        determines that the non-Federal public water supply customers 
        are making progress in establishing an entity pursuant to

        Federal public water supply customers of the Washington 
        Aqueduct has entered into a contractual agreement with the
