              Subtitle E--Delaware River Basin Conservation

SEC. 3501. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds that--
            (1) the Delaware River Basin is a national treasure of great 
        cultural, environmental, ecological, and economic importance;
            (2) the Basin contains over 12,500 square miles of land in 
        the States of Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, 
        including nearly 800 square miles of bay and more than 2,000 
        tributary rivers and streams;
            (3) the Basin is home to more than 8,000,000 people who 
        depend on the Delaware River and the Delaware Bay as an economic 
        engine, a place of recreation, and a vital habitat for fish and 
        wildlife;
            (4) the Basin provides clean drinking water to more than 
        15,000,000 people, including New York City, which relies on the 
        Basin for approximately half of the drinking water supply of the 
        city, and Philadelphia, whose most significant threat to the 
        drinking water supply of the city is loss of forests and other 
        natural cover in the Upper Basin, according to a study conducted 
        by the Philadelphia Water Department;
            (5) the Basin contributes $25,000,000,000 annually in 
        economic activity, provides $21,000,000,000 in ecosystem goods 
        and services per year, and is directly or indirectly responsible 
        for 600,000 jobs with $10,000,000,000 in annual wages;
            (6) almost 180 species of fish and wildlife are considered 
        special status species in the Basin due to habitat loss and 
        degradation, particularly sturgeon, eastern oyster, horseshoe 
        crabs, and red knots, which have been identified as unique 
        species in need of habitat improvement;
            (7) the Basin provides habitat for over 200 resident and 
        migrant fish species, includes significant recreational 
        fisheries, and is an important source of eastern oyster, blue 
        crab, and the largest population of the American horseshoe crab;
            (8) the annual dockside value of commercial eastern oyster 
        fishery landings for the Delaware Estuary is nearly $4,000,000, 
        making it the fourth most lucrative fishery in the Delaware 
        River Basin watershed, and proven management strategies are 
        available to increase oyster habitat, abundance, and harvest;
            (9) the Delaware Bay has the second largest concentration of 
        shorebirds in North America and is designated as one of the 4 
        most important shorebird migration sites in the world;
            (10) the Basin, 50 percent of which is forested, also has 
        over 700,000 acres of wetland, more than 126,000 acres of which 
        are recognized as internationally important, resulting in a 
        landscape that provides essential ecosystem services, including 
        recreation, commercial, and water quality benefits;
            (11) much of the remaining exemplary natural landscape in 
        the Basin is vulnerable to further degradation, as the Basin

[[Page 130 STAT. 1772]]

        gains approximately 10 square miles of developed land annually, 
        and with new development, urban watersheds are increasingly 
        covered by impervious surfaces, amplifying the quantity of 
        polluted runoff into rivers and streams;
            (12) the Delaware River is the longest undammed river east 
        of the Mississippi; a critical component of the National Wild 
        and Scenic Rivers System in the Northeast, with more than 400 
        miles designated; home to one of the most heavily visited 
        National Park units in the United States, the Delaware Water Gap 
        National Recreation Area; and the location of 6 National 
        Wildlife Refuges;
            (13) the Delaware River supports an internationally renowned 
        cold water fishery in more than 80 miles of its northern 
        headwaters that attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year 
        and generates over $21,000,000 in annual revenue through tourism 
        and recreational activities;
            (14) management of water volume in the Basin is critical to 
        flood mitigation and habitat for fish and wildlife, and 
        following 3 major floods along the Delaware River since 2004, 
        the Governors of the States of Delaware, New Jersey, New York, 
        and Pennsylvania have called for natural flood damage reduction 
        measures to combat the problem, including restoring the function 
        of riparian corridors;
            (15) the Delaware River Port Complex (including docking 
        facilities in the States of Delaware, New Jersey, and 
        Pennsylvania) is one of the largest freshwater ports in the 
        world, the Port of Philadelphia handles the largest volume of 
        international tonnage and 70 percent of the oil shipped to the 
        East Coast, and the Port of Wilmington, a full-service deepwater 
        port and marine terminal supporting more than 12,000 jobs, is 
        the busiest terminal on the Delaware River, handling more than 
        400 vessels per year with an annual import/export cargo tonnage 
        of more than 4,000,000 tons;
            (16) the Delaware Estuary, where freshwater from the 
        Delaware River mixes with saltwater from the Atlantic Ocean, is 
        one of the largest and most complex of the 28 estuaries in the 
        National Estuary Program, and the Partnership for the Delaware 
        Estuary works to improve the environmental health of the 
        Delaware Estuary;
            (17) the Delaware River Basin Commission is a Federal-
        interstate compact government agency charged with overseeing a 
        unified approach to managing the river system and implementing 
        important water resources management projects and activities 
        throughout the Basin that are in the national interest;
            (18) restoration activities in the Basin are supported 
        through several Federal and State agency programs, and funding 
        for those important programs should continue and complement the 
        establishment of the Delaware River Basin Restoration Program, 
        which is intended to build on and help coordinate restoration 
        and protection funding mechanisms at the Federal, State, 
        regional, and local levels; and
            (19) the existing and ongoing voluntary conservation efforts 
        in the Delaware River Basin necessitate improved efficiency and 
        cost effectiveness, as well as increased private-sector 
        investments and coordination of Federal and non-Federal 
        resources.

                      will not occur until after 2050; and

                      or interest attributable to Sardis future use 
                      storage only arises if, and only to the extent, 
                      that an increment of Sardis future use storage is 
                      activated by withdrawal or release of water from 
                      the future use storage that is authorized by the 
                      user for a consumptive use of water.
                    (B) Waiver of obligations for storage that is not

                      storage in Sardis Lake is waived and shall be

                      withdrawal or release of water from future use 
                      storage for an authorized consumptive use of

                      storage.
                    (B) No major operational change.--The amended 
                storage contract, the approval of the Secretary of the 
                amended storage contract, and the waiver of future use 
                storage under paragraph (5) shall not constitute a major

SEC. 4001. OPERATIONS AND REVIEWS.

    (a) Water Supplies.--The Secretary of the Interior and Secretary of 
Commerce shall provide the maximum quantity of water supplies 
practicable to Central Valley Project agricultural, municipal and 
industrial contractors, water service or repayment contractors, water 
rights settlement contractors, exchange contractors, refuge contractors, 
and State Water Project contractors, by approving, in accordance with 
applicable Federal and State laws (including regulations), operations or 
temporary projects to provide additional water supplies as quickly as 
possible, based on available information.
    (b) Administration.--In carrying out subsection (a), the Secretary 
of the Interior and Secretary of Commerce shall, consistent with 
applicable laws (including regulations)--
            (1)(A) in close coordination with the California Department 
        of Water Resources and the California Department of Fish and 
        Wildlife, implement a pilot project to test and evaluate the 
        ability to operate the Delta cross-channel gates daily or as 
        otherwise may be appropriate to keep them open to the greatest 
        extent practicable to protect out-migrating salmonids, manage 
        salinities in the interior Delta and any other water quality 
        issues, and maximize Central Valley Project and State Water 
        Project pumping, subject to the condition that the pilot project 
        shall be designed and implemented consistent with operational 
        criteria and monitoring criteria required by the California 
        State Water Resources Control Board; and
            (B) design, implement, and evaluate such real-time 
        monitoring capabilities to enable effective real-time operations 
        of the cross channel in order efficiently to meet the objectives 
        described in subparagraph (A);

[[Page 130 STAT. 1852]]

            (2) with respect to the operation of the Delta cross-channel 
        gates described in paragraph (1), collect data on the impact of 
        that operation on--
                    (A) species listed as threatened or endangered under 
                the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et 
                seq.);
                    (B) water quality; and
                    (C) water supply benefits;
            (3) collaborate with the California Department of Water 
        Resources to install a deflection barrier at Georgiana Slough 
        and the Delta Cross Channel Gate to protect migrating salmonids, 
        consistent with knowledge gained from activities carried out 
        during 2014 and 2015;
            (4) upon completion of the pilot project in paragraph (1), 
        submit to the Senate Committees on Energy and Natural Resources 
        and Environment and Public Works and the House Committee on 
        Natural Resources a written notice and explanation on the extent 
        to which the gates are able to remain open and the pilot project 
        achieves all the goals set forth in paragraphs (1) through (3);
            (5) implement turbidity control strategies that may allow 
        for increased water deliveries while avoiding jeopardy to adult 
        Delta smelt (Hypomesus transpacificus);
            (6) in a timely manner, evaluate any proposal to increase 
        flow in the San Joaquin River through a voluntary sale, 
        transfer, or exchange of water from an agency with rights to 
        divert water from the San Joaquin River or its tributaries;
            (7) adopt a 1:1 inflow to export ratio for the increment of 
        increased flow, as measured as a 3-day running average at 
        Vernalis during the period from April 1 through May 31, that 
        results from the voluntary sale, transfer, or exchange, unless 
        the Secretary of the Interior and Secretary of Commerce 
        determine in writing that a 1:1 inflow to export ratio for that 
        increment of increased flow will cause additional adverse 
        effects on listed salmonid species beyond the range of the 
        effects anticipated to occur to the listed salmonid species for 
        the duration of the salmonid biological opinion using the best 
        scientific and commercial data available; and subject to the 
        condition that any individual sale, transfer, or exchange using 
        a 1:1 inflow to export ratio adopted under the authority of this 
        section may only proceed if--
                    (A) the Secretary of the Interior determines that 
                the environmental effects of the proposed sale, 
                transfer, or exchange are consistent with effects 
                permitted under applicable law (including the Endangered 
                Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), the 
                Federal Water Pollution Control Act (33 U.S.C. 1381 et 
                seq.), and the Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act 
                (California Water Code 13000 et seq.));
                    (B) Delta conditions are suitable to allow movement 
                of the acquired, transferred, or exchanged water through 
                the Delta consistent with existing Central Valley 
                Project and State Water Project permitted water rights 
                and the requirements of subsection (a)(1)(H) of the 
                Central Valley Project Improvement Act; and
                    (C) such voluntary sale, transfer, or exchange of 
                water results in flow that is in addition to flow that 
                otherwise

[[Page 130 STAT. 1853]]

                would occur in the absence of the voluntary sale, 
                transfer, or exchange;

        receiving a completed application by the State to place and use 
        temporary barriers or operable gates in Delta channels to 
        improve water quantity and quality for State Water Project and 
        Central Valley Project south-of-Delta water contractors and 
        other water users, which barriers or gates shall provide 
        benefits for species protection and in-Delta water user water 
        quality, provided that they are designed so that, if 
        practicable, formal consultations under section 7 of the 
        Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1536) are not 
        necessary; and
            (B) take longer to issue the permit decisions in 
        subparagraph (A) only if the Secretary determines in writing 
        that an Environmental Impact Statement is needed for the 
        proposal to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act of 
        1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.);
            (9) allow and facilitate, consistent with existing 
        priorities, water transfers through the C.W. ``Bill'' Jones 
        Pumping Plant or the Harvey O. Banks Pumping Plant from April 1 
        to November 30;

                complete within 30 days after the date of submission of 
                the proposal. If the contracting district or agency or 
                the Secretary determines that the proposal is 
                incomplete, the district or agency or the Secretary 
                shall state with specificity what must be added to or 
                revised for the proposal to be complete;
                    (B) complete all requirements under the National 
                Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et

                    (C) take longer to issue the permit decisions in 
                subparagraph (B) only if the Secretary determines in 
                writing that an Environmental Impact Statement is needed 
                for the proposal to comply with the National 
                Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. et seq.), or 
                that the application is incomplete pursuant to 
                subparagraph (A); and
                    (D) approve any water transfer request described in 
                subparagraph (A) to maximize the quantity of water 
                supplies on the condition that actions associated with 
                the water transfer are consistent with--
                          (i) existing Central Valley Project and State

[[Page 130 STAT. 1855]]

            (3) Limitation.--The expedited procedures under this 
        subsection apply only to--
                    (A) proposed new Federal projects or operational 
                changes pursuant to subsection (a) or (b); and
                    (B) the extent they are consistent with applicable 
                laws (including regulations).

    (e) Operations Plan.--The Secretaries of Commerce and the Interior, 
in consultation with appropriate State officials, shall develop an 
operations plan that is consistent with the provisions of this subtitle 
and other applicable Federal and State laws, including provisions that

SEC. 4002. SCIENTIFICALLY SUPPORTED IMPLEMENTATION OF OMR FLOW 
                          REQUIREMENTS.

    (a) In General.--In implementing the provisions of the smelt 
biological opinion and the salmonid biological opinion, the Secretary of 
the Interior and the Secretary of Commerce shall manage reverse flow in 
Old and Middle Rivers at the most negative reverse flow rate allowed 
under the applicable biological opinion to maximize water supplies for 
the Central Valley Project and the State Water Project, unless that 
management of reverse flow in Old and Middle Rivers to maximize water 
supplies would cause additional adverse effects on the listed fish 
species beyond the range of effects anticipated to occur to the listed 
fish species for the duration of the applicable biological opinion, or 
would be inconsistent with applicable State law requirements, including 
water quality, salinity control, and compliance with State Water 
Resources Control Board Order D-1641 or a successor order.
    (b) Requirements.--If the Secretary of the Interior or Secretary of 
Commerce determines to manage rates of pumping at the C.W. ``Bill'' 
Jones and the Harvey O. Banks pumping plants in the southern Delta to 
achieve a reverse OMR flow rate less negative than the most negative 
reverse flow rate prescribed by the applicable biological opinion, the 
Secretary shall--
            (1) document in writing any significant facts regarding 
        real-time conditions relevant to the determinations of OMR 
        reverse flow rates, including--
                    (A) targeted real-time fish monitoring in the Old 
                River pursuant to this section, including as it pertains 
                to the smelt biological opinion monitoring of Delta 
                smelt in the vicinity of Station 902;
                    (B) near-term forecasts with available salvage 
                models under prevailing conditions of the effects on the 
                listed species of OMR flow at the most negative reverse 
                flow rate prescribed by the biological opinion; and
                    (C) any requirements under applicable State law; and
            (2) explain in writing why any decision to manage OMR 
        reverse flow at rates less negative than the most negative 
        reverse flow rate prescribed by the biological opinion is 
        necessary to avoid additional adverse effects on the listed fish 
        species beyond the range of effects anticipated to occur to the 
        listed fish species for the duration of the applicable 
        biological opinion, after considering relevant factors such as--
                    (A) the distribution of the listed species 
                throughout the Delta;

[[Page 130 STAT. 1856]]

                    (B) the potential effects of high entrainment risk 
                on subsequent species abundance;
                    (C) the water temperature;
                    (D) other significant factors relevant to the 
                determination, as required by applicable Federal or 
                State laws;
                    (E) turbidity; and
                    (F) whether any alternative measures could have a 
                substantially lesser water supply impact.

    (c) Level of Detail Required.--The analyses and documentation 
required by this section shall be comparable to the depth and complexity 
as is appropriate for real time decision-making. This section shall not 
be interpreted to require a level of administrative findings and 
documentation that could impede the execution of effective real time 
adaptive management.
    (d) First Sediment Flush.--During the first flush of sediment out of 
the Delta in each water year, and provided that such determination is 
based upon objective evidence, notwithstanding subsection (a), the 
Secretary of the Interior shall manage OMR flow pursuant to the 
provisions of the smelt biological opinion that protects adult Delta 
smelt from the first flush if required to do so by the smelt biological 
opinion.
    (e) Construction.--The Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary 
of Commerce are authorized to implement subsection (a) consistent with 
the results of monitoring through Early Warning Surveys to make real 
time operational decisions consistent with the current applicable 
biological opinion.
    (f) Calculation of Reverse Flow in OMR.--Within 180 days of the 
enactment of this subtitle, the Secretary of the Interior is directed, 
in consultation with the California Department of Water Resources, and 
consistent with the smelt biological opinion and the salmonid biological 
opinion, to review, modify, and implement, if appropriate, the method 
used to calculate reverse flow in Old and Middle Rivers, for 
implementation of the reasonable and prudent alternatives in the smelt 
biological opinion and the salmonid biological opinion, and any 
succeeding biological opinions.
SEC. 4003. TEMPORARY OPERATIONAL FLEXIBILITY FOR STORM EVENTS.

    (a) In General.--
            (1) Nothing in this subtitle authorizes additional adverse 
        effects on listed species beyond the range of the effects 
        anticipated to occur to the listed species for the duration of 
        the smelt biological opinion or salmonid biological opinion, 
        using the best scientific and commercial data available.
            (2) When consistent with the environmental protection 
        mandate in paragraph (1) while maximizing water supplies for 
        Central Valley Project and State Water Project contractors, the 
        Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Commerce, through 
        an operations plan, shall evaluate and may authorize the Central 
        Valley Project and the State Water Project, combined, to operate 
        at levels that result in OMR flows more negative than the most 
        negative reverse flow rate prescribed by the applicable 
        biological opinion (based on United States Geological Survey 
        gauges on Old and Middle Rivers) daily average as described in 
        subsections (b) and (c) to capture peak flows during storm-
        related events.

[[Page 130 STAT. 1857]]

    (b) Factors to Be Considered.--In determining additional adverse 
effects on any listed fish species beyond the range of effects 
anticipated to occur to the listed fish species for the duration of the 
smelt biological opinion or salmonid biological opinion, using the best 
scientific and commercial data available, the Secretaries of the 
Interior and Commerce may consider factors including:
            (1) The degree to which the Delta outflow index indicates a 
        higher level of flow available for diversion.
            (2) Relevant physical parameters including projected 
        inflows, turbidity, salinities, and tidal cycles.
            (3) The real-time distribution of listed species.

    (c) Other Environmental Protections.--
            (1) State law.--The actions of the Secretary of the Interior 
        and the Secretary of Commerce under this section shall be 
        consistent with applicable regulatory requirements under State 
        law.
            (2) First sediment flush.--During the first flush of 
        sediment out of the Delta in each water year, and provided that 
        such determination is based upon objective evidence, the 
        Secretary of the Interior shall manage OMR flow pursuant to the 
        portion of the smelt biological opinion that protects adult 
        Delta smelt from the first flush if required to do so by the 
        smelt biological opinion.
            (3) Applicability of opinion.--This section shall not affect 
        the application of the salmonid biological opinion from April 1 
        to May 31, unless the Secretary of Commerce finds that some or 
        all of such applicable requirements may be adjusted during this 
        time period to provide emergency water supply relief without 
        resulting in additional adverse effects on listed salmonid 
        species beyond the range of the effects anticipated to occur to 
        the listed salmonid species for the duration of the salmonid 
        biological opinion using the best scientific and commercial data 
        available. In addition to any other actions to benefit water 
        supply, the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of 
        Commerce shall consider allowing through-Delta water transfers 
        to occur during this period if they can be accomplished 
        consistent with section 3405(a)(1)(H) of the Central Valley 
        Project Improvement Act and other applicable law. Water 
        transfers solely or exclusively through the State Water Project 
        are not required to be consistent with subsection (a)(1)(H) of 
        the Central Valley Project Improvement Act.
            (4) Monitoring.--During operations under this section, the 
        Commissioner of Reclamation, in coordination with the Fish and 
        Wildlife Service, National Marine Fisheries Service, and 
        California Department of Fish and Wildlife, shall undertake 
        expanded monitoring programs and other data gathering to improve 
        the efficiency of operations for listed species protections and 
        Central Valley Project and State Water Project water supply to 
        ensure incidental take levels are not exceeded, and to identify 
        potential negative impacts, if any.

    (d) Effect of High Outflows.--When exercising their authorities to 
capture peak flows pursuant to subsection (c), the Secretary of the 
Interior and the Secretary of Commerce shall not count such days toward 
the 5-day and 14-day running averages of tidally filtered daily Old and 
Middle River flow requirements under the smelt biological opinion and 
salmonid biological opinion, unless doing so is required to avoid 
additional adverse effects on

[[Page 130 STAT. 1858]]

listed fish species beyond those anticipated to occur through 
implementation of the smelt biological opinion and salmonid biological 
opinion using the best scientific and commercial data available.
    (e) Level of Detail Required for Analysis.--In articulating the 
determinations required under this section, the Secretary of the 
Interior and the Secretary of Commerce shall fully satisfy the 
requirements herein but shall not be expected to provide a greater level 
of supporting detail for the analysis than feasible to provide within 
the short timeframe permitted for timely real-time decisionmaking in 
response to changing conditions in the Delta.
SEC. 4004. CONSULTATION ON COORDINATED OPERATIONS.

    (a) Resolution of Water Resource Issues.--In furtherance of the 
policy established by section 2(c)(2) of the Endangered Species Act of 
1973, that Federal agencies shall cooperate with State and local 
agencies to resolve water resource issues in concert with conservation 
of endangered species, in any consultation or reconsultation on the 
coordinated operations of the Central Valley Project and the State Water 
Project, the Secretaries of the Interior and Commerce shall ensure that 
any public water agency that contracts for the delivery of water from 
the Central Valley Project or the State Water Project that so requests 
shall--
            (1) have routine and continuing opportunities to discuss and 
        submit information to the action agency for consideration during 
        the development of any biological assessment;
            (2) be informed by the action agency of the schedule for 
        preparation of a biological assessment;
            (3) be informed by the consulting agency, the U.S. Fish and 
        Wildlife Service or the National Marine Fisheries Service, of 
        the schedule for preparation of the biological opinion at such 
        time as the biological assessment is submitted to the consulting 
        agency by the action agency;
            (4) receive a copy of any draft biological opinion and have 
        the opportunity to review that document and provide comment to 
        the consulting agency through the action agency, which comments 
        will be afforded due consideration during the consultation;
            (5) have the opportunity to confer with the action agency 
        and applicant, if any, about reasonable and prudent alternatives 
        prior to the action agency or applicant identifying one or more 
        reasonable and prudent alternatives for consideration by the 
        consulting agency; and
            (6) where the consulting agency suggests a reasonable and 
        prudent alternative be informed--
                    (A) how each component of the alternative will 
                contribute to avoiding jeopardy or adverse modification 
                of critical habitat and the scientific data or 
                information that supports each component of the 
                alternative; and
                    (B) why other proposed alternative actions that 
                would have fewer adverse water supply and economic 
                impacts are inadequate to avoid jeopardy or adverse 
                modification of critical habitat.

    (b) Input.--When consultation is ongoing, the Secretaries of the 
Interior and Commerce shall regularly solicit input from and report 
their progress to the Collaborative Adaptive Management

[[Page 130 STAT. 1859]]

Team and the Collaborative Science and Adaptive Management Program 
policy group. The Collaborative Adaptive Management Team and the 
Collaborative Science and Adaptive Management Program policy group may 
provide the Secretaries with recommendations to improve the effects 
analysis and Federal agency determinations. The Secretaries shall give 
due consideration to the recommendations when developing the Biological 
Assessment and Biological Opinion.
    (c) Meetings.--The Secretaries shall establish a quarterly 
stakeholder meeting during any consultation or reconsultation for the 
purpose of providing updates on the development of the Biological 
Assessment and Biological Opinion. The quarterly stakeholder meeting 
shall be open to stakeholders identified by the Secretaries representing 
a broad range of interests including environmental, recreational and 
commercial fishing, agricultural, municipal, Delta, and other regional 
interests, and including stakeholders that are not state or local 
agencies.
    (d) Clarification.--Neither subsection (b) or (c) of this section 
may be used to meet the requirements of subsection (a).
    (e) Non-applicability of FACA.--For the purposes of subsection (b), 
the Collaborative Adaptive Management Team, the Collaborative Science 
and Adaptive Management Program policy group, and any recommendations 
made to the Secretaries, are exempt from the Federal Advisory Committee 
Act.

        shall confer with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife 
        in connection with the implementation of the applicable 
        provisions of this subtitle on potential impacts to any 
        consistency determination for operations of the State Water 
        Project issued pursuant to California Fish and Game Code section 
        2080.1.
            (2) Additional yield.--If, as a result of the application of 
        the applicable provisions of this subtitle, the California 
        Department of Fish and Wildlife--
                    (A) determines that operations of the State Water 
                Project are inconsistent with the consistency 
                determinations issued pursuant to California Fish and 
                Game Code section 2080.1 for operations of the State 
                Water Project; or
                    (B) requires take authorization under California 
                Fish and Game Code section 2081 for operation of the 
                State Water Project;
        in a manner that directly or indirectly results in reduced water 
        supply to the State Water Project as compared with the water 
        supply available under the smelt biological opinion and the 
        salmonid biological opinion; and as a result, Central Valley 
        Project yield is greater than it otherwise would have been, then 
        that additional yield shall be made available to the State Water 
        Project for delivery to State Water Project contractors to 
        offset that reduced water supply, provided that if it is 
        necessary to reduce water supplies for any Central Valley 
        Project authorized uses or contractors to make available to the 
        State

[[Page 130 STAT. 1860]]

        Water Project that additional yield, such reductions shall be 
        applied proportionately to those uses or contractors that 
        benefit from that increased yield.
            (3) Notification related to environmental protections.--The 
        Secretary of the Interior and Secretary of Commerce shall--
                    (A) notify the Director of the California Department 
                of Fish and Wildlife regarding any changes in the manner 
                in which the smelt biological opinion or the salmonid 
                biological opinion is implemented; and
                    (B) confirm that those changes are consistent with 
                the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et 
                seq.).

            (2) Action on determination.--If, after exploring all 
        options, the Secretary of the Interior or the Secretary of 
        Commerce makes a final determination that a proposed action 
        under the applicable provisions of this subtitle cannot be 
        carried out in accordance with paragraph (1), that Secretary--
                    (A) shall document that determination in writing for 
                that action, including a statement of the facts relied 
                on, and an explanation of the basis, for the decision; 
                and
                    (B) is subject to applicable law, including the 
                Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.).

    (e) Allocations for Sacramento Valley Water Service Contractors.--
            (1) Definitions.--In this subsection:
                    (A) Existing central valley project agricultural

    (b) Actions to Benefit Endangered Fish Populations.--
            (1) Findings.--Congress finds that--
                    (A) minimizing or eliminating stressors to fish 
                populations and their habitat in an efficient and 
                structured manner is a key aspect of a fish recovery 
                strategy;
                    (B) functioning, diverse, and interconnected 
                habitats are necessary for a species to be viable; and
                    (C) providing for increased fish habitat may not 
                only allow for a more robust fish recovery, but also 
                reduce impacts to water supplies.
            (2) Actions for benefit of endangered species.--There is 
        authorized to be appropriated the following amounts:
                    (A) $15,000,000 for the Secretary of Commerce,

                activities in accordance with the Endangered Species Act 
                of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.):
                          (i) Gravel and rearing area additions and 
                      habitat restoration to the Sacramento River to 
                      benefit Chinook salmon and steelhead trout.
                          (ii) Scientifically improved and increased 
                      real-time monitoring to inform real-time 
                      operations of Shasta and related Central Valley 
                      Project facilities, and alternative methods, 
                      models, and equipment to improve temperature 
                      modeling and related forecasted information for 
                      purposes of predicting impacts to salmon and 
                      salmon habitat as a result of water management at

States and Contractors of Federally Developed Water Supplies.--
            (1) Conversion and prepayment of contracts.--Upon request of 
        the contractor, the Secretary of the Interior shall convert any 
        water service contract in effect on the date of enactment of 
        this subtitle and between the United States and a water users' 
        association to allow for prepayment of the repayment contract 
        pursuant to paragraph (2) under mutually agreeable terms and 
        conditions. The manner of conversion under this paragraph shall 
        be as follows:
                    (A) Water service contracts that were entered into 
                under section (e) of the Act of August 4, 1939 (53 Stat. 
                1196), to be converted under this section shall be

                1939 (53 Stat. 1194), to be converted under this section 
                shall be converted to a contract under subsection (c)(1) 
                of section 9 of that Act (53 Stat. 1195).
            (2) Prepayment.--Except for those repayment contracts under 
        which the contractor has previously negotiated for prepayment, 
        all repayment contracts under section 9(d) of that Act (53 Stat. 
        1195) in effect on the date of enactment of this subtitle at the 
        request of the contractor, and all contracts converted pursuant 
        to paragraph (1)(A) shall--
                    (A) provide for the repayment, either in lump sum or 
                by accelerated prepayment, of the remaining construction 
                costs identified in water project specific irrigation 
                rate repayment schedules, as adjusted to reflect payment 
                not reflected in such schedules, and properly assignable 
                for ultimate return by the contractor, or if made in 
                approximately equal installments, no later than 3 years 
                after the effective date of the repayment contract, such 
                amount

[[Page 130 STAT. 1879]]

                to be discounted by \1/2\ the Treasury rate. An estimate 
                of the remaining construction costs, as adjusted, shall 
                be provided by the Secretary to the contractor no later 
                than 90 days following receipt of request of the 
                contractor;
                    (B) require that construction costs or other 
                capitalized costs incurred after the effective date of 
                the contract or not reflected in the rate schedule 
                referenced in subparagraph (A), and properly assignable 
                to such contractor shall be repaid in not more than 5 
                years after notification of the allocation if such 
                amount is a result of a collective annual allocation of 
                capital costs to the contractors exercising contract 
                conversion under this subsection of less than 
                $5,000,000. If such amount is $5,000,000 or greater, 
                such cost shall be repaid as provided by applicable 
                reclamation law;
                    (C) provide that power revenues will not be 
                available to aid in repayment of construction costs 
                allocated to irrigation under the contract; and
                    (D) continue so long as the contractor pays 
                applicable charges, consistent with section 9(d) of the 
                Act of August 4, 1939 (53 Stat. 1195), and applicable 
                law.

        Act (53 Stat. 1195) in effect on the date of enactment of this 
        subtitle at the request of the contractor, and all contracts 
        converted pursuant to paragraph (1)(B):
                    (A) Provide for the repayment in lump sum of the 
                remaining construction costs identified in water project 
                specific municipal and industrial rate repayment 
                schedules, as adjusted to reflect payments not reflected 
                in such schedules, and properly assignable for ultimate 
                return by the contractor. An estimate of the remaining 
                construction costs, as adjusted, shall be provided by 
                the Secretary to the contractor no later than 90 days 
                after receipt of the request of contractor.
                    (B) The contract shall require that construction 
                costs or other capitalized costs incurred after the 
                effective date of the contract or not reflected in the 
                rate schedule referenced in subparagraph (A), and 
                properly assignable to such contractor, shall be repaid 
                in not more than 5 years after notification of the 
                allocation if such amount is a result of a collective 
                annual allocation of capital costs to the contractors 
                exercising contract conversion under this subsection of 
                less than $5,000,000. If such amount is $5,000,000 or 
                greater, such cost shall be repaid as provided by 
                applicable reclamation law.
                    (C) Continue so long as the contractor pays 
                applicable charges, consistent with section 9(c)(1) of 
                the Act of August 4, 1939 (53 Stat. 1195), and 
                applicable law.
            (4) Conditions.--All contracts entered into pursuant to 
        paragraphs (1), (2), and (3) shall--
                    (A) not be adjusted on the basis of the type of 
                prepayment financing used by the water users' 
                association;

[[Page 130 STAT. 1880]]

                    (B) conform to any other agreements, such as 
                applicable settlement agreements and new constructed 
                appurtenant facilities; and
                    (C) not modify other water service, repayment, 
                exchange and transfer contractual rights between the 
                water users' association, and the Bureau of Reclamation, 
                or any rights, obligations, or relationships of the 
                water users' association and their landowners as 
                provided under State law.

    (b) Accounting.--The amounts paid pursuant to subsection (a) shall 
be subject to adjustment following a final cost allocation by the 
Secretary of the Interior. In the event that the final cost allocation 
indicates that the costs properly assignable to the contractor are 
greater than what has been paid by the contractor, the contractor shall 
be obligated to pay the remaining allocated costs. The term of such 
additional repayment contract shall be not less than one year and not 
more than 10 years, however, mutually agreeable provisions regarding the 
rate of repayment of such amount may be developed by the parties. In the 
event that the final cost allocation indicates that the costs properly 
assignable to the contractor are less than what the contractor has paid, 
the Secretary shall credit such overpayment as an offset against any 
outstanding or future obligation of the contractor, with the exception 
of Restoration Fund charges pursuant to section 3407(d) of Public Law 
102-575.
    (c) Applicability of Certain Provisions.--
            (1) Effect of existing law.--Upon a contractor's compliance 
        with and discharge of the obligation of repayment of the 
        construction costs pursuant to a contract entered into pursuant

        contractor to repay construction costs or other capitalized 
        costs described in subsection (a)(2)(B), (a)(3)(B), or (b) shall 
        not affect a contractor's status as having repaid all of the 
        construction costs assignable to the contractor or the 
        applicability of subsections (a) and (b) of section 213 of the 
        Reclamation Reform Act of 1982 (96 Stat. 1269) once the amount 
        required to be paid by the contractor under the repayment 
        contract entered into pursuant to subsection (a)(2)(A) has been 
        paid.

    (d) Effect on Existing Law Not Altered.--Implementation of the 
provisions of this subtitle shall not alter--
            (1) the repayment obligation of any water service or 
        repayment contractor receiving water from the same water 
        project, or shift any costs that would otherwise have been

        obligations under the reclamation law, including the 
        continuation of Restoration Fund charges pursuant to section 
        3407(d) (Public Law 102-575), of the water service and repayment 
        contractors making prepayments pursuant to this section.

        users' associations for the construction of water storage and 
        amounts within the Storage Account may be used to fund such 
        construction. Water storage projects that are otherwise not 
        federally authorized shall not be considered Federal facilities 
        as a result of any amounts allocated from the Storage Account 
        for part or all of such facilities.
            (3) Repayment.--Amounts used for water storage construction 
        from the Account shall be fully reimbursed to the Account

                Contingency Plan.
                    (B) Prior approval required.--Response costs 
                incurred after September 9, 2016, are eligible for

                      costs under section 111(a)(2) of the Comprehensive
