inserting ``an assessment''.

                         Purpose of Legislation

    The purpose of H.R. 7575, the Water Resources Development 
Act of 2020, as amended, is to authorize the United States Army 
Corps of Engineers (Corps) to carry out water resources 
development activities for the Nation, usually through cost-
shared partnerships with non-Federal sponsors. Activities 
include projects or studies to address river and coastal 
navigation, the reduction of flood and hurricane storm damage 
risks, shoreline protection, water supply and conservation, the 
restoration and protection of ecosystems and the environment, 
and disaster response and recovery.
    H.R. 7575, as amended, enhances the Corps' responsibility 
to address the long-term resiliency of Corps projects, enables 
the Corps to address the deferred maintenance of our Nation's 
ports and harbors, expands the Corps' ability to identify and 
implement nature-based and natural infrastructure components, 
addresses the affordability of Corps projects for economically 
disadvantaged and rural communities, and modernizes aspects of 
the Corps' decision-making structure.

                  Background and Need for Legislation

    America enjoys an unparalleled network of natural harbors 
and rivers. The ports, channels, locks, dams, and other 
infrastructure that support our maritime and waterways 
transportation system and provide flood protection for our 
homes and businesses are vitally important to a healthy 
national economy, job growth, and global competitiveness. 
Ensuring a sound infrastructure network is a shared 
responsibility, with Federal and state roles recognized by our 
Founding Fathers.
    The Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2020 promotes 
the Federal commitment to our Nation's competitiveness, 
prosperity, and economic growth by maintaining strong maritime 
transportation infrastructure, ensuring the efficient flow of 
domestic and international commerce, and protecting the lives 
and livelihoods of the American people in a sustainable manner.
    Through WRDA, Congress authorizes the key missions of the 
Corps, including developing, maintaining, and supporting the 
Nation's economically vital waterway infrastructure and 
supporting effective and targeted flood protection and 
environmental restoration needs. WRDA also provides Congress 
the opportunity to implement critical policy reforms and 
strengthen oversight.
    Since 2014, the Committee has returned to regular 
consideration of Water Resources Development Acts once each 
Congress. WRDA 2020 continues the WRDA two-year cycle that 
provides appropriate oversight of, and policy direction to, the 
Administration and the Corps, including bipartisan changes to 
how the Corps carries out vital coastal and inland navigation 
projects and addresses both the resiliency and affordability of 
future water resources development projects.

The Role of Harbors, Harbor Maintenance Needs, and the Inland Waterways 
        System

    According to the Congressional Research Service (CRS), 
oceangoing vessels carry more merchandise trade (measured in 
tons) to and from the United States than all other modes 
combined (air, trucks, rail, and pipeline).\1\ This accounts 
for 80 percent of the total merchandise trade volume for the 
country. The dependence of trade on ports and shipping channels 
makes the operation and maintenance of these facilities crucial 
to the U.S. economy.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\See CRS Report R43222, ``Harbor Maintenance Finance and 
Funding,'' John Frittelli, September 12, 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Congress provided the Corps with authority to construct and 
maintain the Nation's approximately 1,067 Federal harbors and 
shipping channels. These ports and harbors are categorized as 
high use, moderate, and emerging, and defined by statute 
(section 210 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1986; 33 
U.S.C. 2238) based on how much tonnage is transited through 
individual ports.
    According to the Corps, navigation channels at our Nation's 
59 ``high use'' ports are at their authorized depths less than 
35 percent of the time. A ``high use'' port is a port that 
handles more than 10 million tons of freight per year. The 
conditions of midsize or ``moderate'' harbors (ports that 
handle between one million and ten million tons of cargo) and 
``emerging'' harbors (ports that handle one million tons or 
less of cargo annually) are far worse. The dredging needs of 
our ports will only continue to grow unless more resources are 
devoted to maintenance dredging needs. The opening of the 
expanded Panama Canal in June 2016 has already increased demand 
for larger container ships to call on East and Gulf Coast 
ports.
    In 2016, the Corps estimated the total cost to dredge and 
maintain authorized widths and depths of all Federal navigation 
projects is $20.5 billion over the next decade. This estimate 
includes:
           $11.5 billion--to achieve authorized 
        dimensions in the next five years ($2.3 billion 
        annually); and
           $9.0 billion--to maintain authorized 
        dimensions for an additional five years ($1.8 billion 
        annually).
    Moreover, total navigation needs are likely higher. The 
Corps' $20.5 billion estimate includes additional expenses 
related to navigation (e.g., construction of dredged material 
placement facilities). However, this estimate does not likely 
include all necessary jetty and breakwater work,\2\ or other 
needs identified by ports to maintain and expand harbor use 
nationwide.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \2\See Testimony of Kristin Meira, Executive Director, Pacific 
Northwest Waterways Association (PNWA) before the Committee on 
Transportation and Infrastructure, Hearing on ``The Cost of Doing 
Nothing: Why Investing in our Nation's Infrastructure Cannot Wait,'' 
February 7, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
            The Harbor Maintenance Tax and Trust Fund
    In 1986, Congress enacted the Harbor Maintenance Tax (HMT) 
to recover the operation and maintenance dredging costs for 
commercial ports from maritime shippers. The HMT is directly 
levied on importers and domestic shippers using coastal or 
inland ports as a 0.125 percent ad valorem tax on the value of 
imported cargo (i.e., $1.25 per $1,000 value)\3\ and is 
typically passed along to U.S. taxpayers on the purchase of 
imported goods or services. These revenues are deposited into 
the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund (HMTF) within the U.S. 
Treasury, from which Congress currently appropriates funds to 
the Corps for harbor maintenance dredging.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \3\The Harbor Maintenance Tax initially applied to both imported 
and exported goods; however, in 1998, the U.S. Supreme Court 
unanimously held that imposition of the tax on exported goods was a 
violation of the U.S. Constitution. See United States v. U.S. Shoe 
Corp., 523 U.S. 360 (1998).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    As noted in Table 1, the HMTF has collected far more 
revenues from shippers than Congress has appropriated to the 
Corps to maintain our Nation's harbors. Approximately $10 
billion in already collected revenues sits unused for its 
intended purpose in the U.S. Treasury, and according to 
Congressional Budget Office estimates, based on current 
expenditure projections, the Trust Fund balance could almost 
double in the next decade. As a result, while shippers continue 
to pay into the HMTF for promised maintenance activities, the 
Federal government has not carried out many of them.

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

    The funds sitting unused in the HMTF would be sufficient to 
meet the maintenance dredging needs of all Federally authorized 
ports. The Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 
(WRRDA 14) (P.L. 113-121) created discretionary appropriations 
targets for expenditures from the Trust Fund, increasing each 
year, so that by fiscal year 2025 and beyond, 100 percent of 
the funds collected for harbor maintenance purposes would go 
towards required operation and maintenance activities. In 
recent fiscal years, appropriations from the Trust Fund have 
exceeded the discretionary targets outlined in WRRDA 14; 
however, Congress has not yet achieved the goal of full 
utilization of Trust Fund collections.

    \5\HMT Collections reflects the 0.125% HMT and the HMTF's earnings

    \6\HMT Appropriations reflects the amounts appropriated for the 
operations and maintenance costs of U.S. commercial navigation harbors 
and the amounts appropriated for the operations and maintenance costs 
of the Saint Lawrence Seaway that are operated and maintained by the 
Saint Lawrence Seaway Corporation. The number does not include any HMT 
appropriations for activities on Mississippi Rivers and Tributaries 
projects or construction related activities currently eligible from the 
HMT (e.g. construction of dredged material disposal facilities that are 
necessary for the operation and maintenance of any harbor or inland 
harbor).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Committee, on a bipartisan basis, has approved 
legislation to fully utilize HMT collections for their intended 
purpose of maintenance dredging four times\7\--the most recent 
of which (H.R. 2440, the Full Utilization of the Harbor 
Maintenance Trust Fund Act) was approved by the House under 
suspension of the rules by a vote of 296 to 109 (roll call 585) 
on October, 28, 2019. Similarly, on March 27, 2020, Congress 
approved H.R. 748, the CARES Act (Pub. L. 116-136), which 
included a provision (section 14003 of division B) that ensures 
that Federal appropriations from the Trust Fund are not counted 
against the annual discretionary budget cap up to the level of 
the prior year's deposits to the Trust Fund. However, 
legislation to provide full access to the $10 billion currently 
sitting idle in the Trust Fund has yet to be enacted into law. 
Enactment of such a provision honors our Nation's long-term 
commitment to U.S. shippers and taxpayers for harbor 
maintenance dredging, maintains and improves the 
competitiveness of U.S. businesses and industry, and creates 
and sustains thousands of additional construction jobs and jobs 
dependent on a vibrant and efficient marine transportation 
system.

            The Inland Waterways System
    Inland waterways are a significant component of the 
Nation's maritime transportation system. These waterways carry 
approximately one-sixth of the national volume of intercity 
cargo on 25,000 miles of navigable waters throughout the United 
States. Of these waters, approximately 12,000 miles make up the 
commercially active inland and intracoastal waterways which are 
Federally managed by the Corps.
    The Federally managed inland waterway system is comprised 
of 237 lock chambers at 191 sites and is responsible for ports 
and waterways in 41 states. The inland waterway system handles 
approximately half of all inland waterway freight (and one-
twelfth of all national freight). The Corps plans, develops, 
operates, and maintains the infrastructure of these commercial 
waterways (e.g., navigation channels, harbors, and locks and 
dams), and maintains and regulates the channel depths through 
dredging and water management.
    Beyond enabling commercial transportation, the inland 
waterways system may aid in flood control, provide a stable 
water supply for nearby communities and industries, at some 
locations generate hydropower, offer water recreation, provide 
for regional economic development opportunities, and enhance 
national security capabilities. These waterways are often in 
ecologically significant areas and important to the survival of 
fish and wildlife, including several listed species.
            The Inland Waterways Trust Fund
    The inland waterway system is facing significant challenges 
due to aging infrastructure. Over half of the structures on the 
inland waterways are more than 50 years old and nearly 40 
percent are more than 70 years old. Many of these projects are 
approaching the end of their design lives and are in need of 
modernization or major rehabilitation. Congress created the 
Inland Waterways Trust Fund (IWTF) as a funding mechanism to 
invest in the construction, operation, and maintenance of the 
inland system.
    The IWTF was authorized by two separate acts of Congress. 
The original authorization was contained in the Inland 
Waterways Revenue Act of 1978 (Public Law 95-502) (the 1978 
Revenue Act). Under the 1978 Revenue Act, Congress created the 
IWTF within the U.S. Treasury for the purpose of supporting the 
construction and rehabilitation of structures for navigation on 
the inland and coastal waterways of the United States. Congress 
funded the IWTF with a tax on fuel used in commercial 
transportation on inland waterways and statutorily defined 26 
specific segments of the inland and intracoastal waterways as 
being subject to the tax and being eligible for construction 
and rehabilitation expenditures from the IWTF.
    The second piece of enabling legislation was the Water 
Resources Development Act of 1986 (Public Law 99-662) (WRDA 
1986). This legislation reset the IWTF by a graduated increase 
in the inland waterways commercial fuel tax rates, that was 
statutorily capped at the current $0.20 per gallon tax;\8\ 
added the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway to the list of fuel-
taxed inland and intracoastal waterways (now totaling 27 
segments); implemented the current funding and cost-share 
allocations; and authorized the construction of eight new 
inland waterways system modernization projects. Previously 
authorized projects and uncompleted projects were allowed to 
continue at 100 percent Federal funding without drawing from 
the IWTF.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \8\The initial $0.20 per gallon diesel tax was increased to $0.29 
per gallon by Pub. L. 113-295, Division B, Title II, Section 205(a). 
However, unlike the ad valorem tax on imports that funds the Harbor 
Maintenance Trust Fund, the fuel tax that funds the Inland Waterways 
Trust Fund is not adjusted to reflect increases in inflation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    As noted in Table 2, appropriations from the IWTF have 
nearly matched estimated annual revenues into the IWTF since 
the increase in diesel tax in 2015. Additionally, as annual 
revenues deposited into the IWTF continue to increase, the 
Corps has begun to complete long-standing IWTF-supported 
projects, including Olmsted Locks and Dam on the Ohio River, 
and LaGrange Lock and Dam on the Illinois River.

    In August 2019, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released 
a report titled ``Importance of Inland Waterways to U.S. 
Agriculture.''\10\ The report analyzed three investment 
scenarios for inland waterways infrastructure and found that 
significant additional investment in the Nation's inland 
waterways system is critical to maintaining the Nation's global 
agricultural competitiveness.\11\ And while our inland waterway 
system moves many other bulk commodities and raw materials at 
relatively low cost, WRDA 2020 includes a cost-share change 
that is intended to aid the construction and rehabilitation of 
inland waterway projects.

Water Resources Project Resiliency Planning and Investment, 
        Improvements to Flood Risk Reduction, and Affordability 
        Challenges

    Most of the Corps' facilities and infrastructure were 
constructed in the early to mid-1900s. For example, 
approximately 95 percent of the dams managed by the Corps are 
more than 30 years old, and half have reached or exceeded their 
50-year project lives. As noted in witness testimonies before 
the Committee,\12\ much of our water resources related 
infrastructure is reaching the end of its usable life and has 
not been maintained or updated to address the water resources 
challenges facing our communities today. Similarly, in many 
areas of the country, there is no comprehensive management of 
the inter-related systems of dams, levees, and other structures 
that protect residents and their economy within a watershed--
complexity that can be compounded by observed changes in the 
frequency and severity of weather events, precipitation 
patterns, and drought.

Director, Center for Disaster Resilience, A. James Clark School of 
Engineering, University of Maryland; testimony of Ann C. Phillips, Rear 
Admiral, U.S. Navy (Retired), Special Assistant to the Governor of 
Virginia for Coastal Adaptation and Protection; and testimony of 
Melissa Samet, Senior Water Resources Counsel, National Wildlife 
Federation before the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, 
Hearing on ``Concepts for the Next Water Resources Development Act: 
Promoting Resiliency of our Nation's Water Resources Infrastructure,'' 
November 19, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Corps' ability to manage its portfolio of aging 
infrastructure is coupled with the need to balance multiple 
authorized purposes and increased demands on the 
infrastructure. The Corps' infrastructure faces challenges in 
the frequency in which extreme weather events are occurring. As 
noted in witness testimony before the Subcommittee on Water 
Resources and Environment, ``resiliency is not a rigid, 
monolithic set of standards that can be easily applied to every 
situation and every place.''\13\ How the Corps factors the 
frequency of extreme weather events and the role of resiliency 
in the planning, design, construction, and operation and 
maintenance of its facilities is crucial both to the long term 
sustainability of the infrastructure and the communities they 
protect, as well as the Corps' ongoing responsibility to meet 
the authorized purposes of Corps projects.

Conference, Inc. before the Committee on Transportation and 
Infrastructure, Hearing on ``Concepts for the Next Water Resources 
Development Act: Promoting Resiliency of our Nation's Water Resources 
Infrastructure,'' November 19, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Committee also received testimony in the challenges 
facing economically disadvantaged communities, rural 
communities, and tribal communities in addressing local water 
resources challenges. For example, the Subcommittee on Water 
Resources and Environment heard from a witness, who expressed 
concern that ``[continuing] reliance primarily on economic 
justification of projects makes it difficult for those in rural 
and low-income areas to justify projects that would give them 
considerable social and conceivably health benefits.''\14\ In 
response to these identified concerns, WRDA 2020 includes 
several provisions aimed at addressing the resiliency, 
affordability, and process for evaluating future water 
resources development projects.

Infrastructure,'' November 19, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
            Implementation of the Principles, Requirements and 
                    Guidelines
    Since 1983, Federal water resources agencies, including the 
Corps, have utilized a set of multi-agency guidelines that 
govern how Federal agencies plan for, evaluate, and select 
proposed water resources development projects, including 
projects related to navigation, storm resilience, wetland 
restoration, and flood prevention. However, the standards 
established and used since 1983 (Principles and Guidelines) use 
a narrow set of parameters to evaluate the benefits of water 
investments that limit the ability of Federal agencies to 
support a broader range of projects for communities.
    The Water Resources Development Act of 2007 called for 
revisions to the 1983 Principles and Guidelines.\15\ In 2013, 
the Council for Environmental Quality (CEQ) issued these 
revisions, now called the Principles, Requirements and 
Guidelines for Water and Land Related Resources Implementation 
Studies (PR&G). The PR&G revise and replace the 1983 Principles 
and Guidelines and were intended to apply to all Federal water 
resources agencies to establish new, comprehensive policy and 
guidance for Federal investments in water resources. However, 
while other Federal agencies have since adopted the PR&G, the 
Corps has not yet adopted these revisions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \15\Section 2031 of the Water Resources Development Act of 2007 (42 
U.S.C. 1962-3).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    WRDA 2020 includes language directing the Secretary to 
issue agency-specific procedures for adoption of the PR&G. The 
Corps' adoption and implementation of the PR&G will increase 
consistency and compatibility in water resources investment 
decision making. The PR&G updates how the Corps analyzes 
Federal investments that impact water resources and allows the 
Corps to more broadly consider the economic, environmental, and 
social impacts of a project. Adoption of the PR&G will also 
promote better investment of taxpayer dollars by directing the 
Corps to analyze a broader range of long-term costs and 
benefits, will give stakeholders a greater voice through 
enhanced collaboration, and will allow for utilization of 
resilient approaches to address local water resources 
challenges posed by observed changes in the frequency and 
severity of weather events, precipitation patterns, and 
drought.
            Affordability of Corps Studies and Projects
    During the formulation of WRDA 2020, the Subcommittee on 
Water Resources and Environment held several hearings and 
roundtables to hear from stakeholders on challenges facing the 
development and implementation of water resources development 
projects. A recurring theme during these hearings and 
roundtables was concern on the inequitable treatment of 
communities in addressing local water resources challenges 
based on their ability or economic capability to partner with 
the Corps. For example, in the Subcommittee's November 2019 
hearing, a witness highlighted in his testimony the 
``inequitable treatment in providing flood risk reduction to 
low-income communities,'' which he described as ``most obvious 
in low-income areas across the nation and results from the 
criteria we use to develop and approve projects and 
programs.''\16\

Infrastructure, Hearing on ``Concepts for the Next Water Resources 
Development Act: Promoting Resiliency of our Nation's Water Resources 
Infrastructure,'' November 19, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In response, WRDA 2020 contains several provisions that aim 
at both increasing the ability of economically disadvantaged 
communities, rural communities, and minority and tribal 
communities to utilize the Corps in addressing local water 
resources development challenges, as well as to ensure that 
these communities are actively included in discussions related 
to addressing water resources development projects and 
activities that affect them. In this regard, WRDA 2020 
includes:
           A pilot program to evaluate opportunities to 
        address the flood risk management and hurricane and 
        storm damage risk reduction needs, including the needs 
        of economically disadvantaged communities.
           Authority that allows the Corps to engage in 
        pre-feasibility study discussions with non-Federal 
        interests for projects benefitting an economically 
        disadvantaged community.
           Prioritization of existing flood plain 
        management services authorities under section 206 of 
        the Flood Control Act of 1960 for economically 
        disadvantaged communities.
            Improvements to Flood Risk Reduction
    During the formulation of WRDA 2020, the Subcommittee on 
Water Resources and Environment held several hearings and 
roundtables to hear from stakeholders on challenges facing the 
development and implementation of water resources development 
projects. Another recurring theme during these hearings and 
roundtables was concern on the repeated flooding impacts on 
communities and the inadequate maintenance of our Nation's 
flood risk management infrastructure. For example, in the 
Subcommittee's July 2019 hearing, a witness highlighted in his 
testimony the devastating impacts of the 2019 Missouri River 
Floods and reminded that flooding does not discriminate and 
touches every part of our Nation.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \17\See Testimony of Tom Waters, Chairman, Missouri Levee and 
Drainage District Association before the Committee on Transportation 
and Infrastructure, Hearing on ``Water Resources Development Acts: 
Status of Implementation and Assessing Future Needs,'' July 10, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    To that end, WRDA 2020 includes important river basin-wide 
comprehensive flood risk reduction studies for the Lower 
Missouri River, Upper and Lower Mississippi River, the Great 
Lakes, and the Yolo River. Additionally, this Act provides new 
authority for permanent construction solutions for communities 
that experience repetitive loss as a result of flooding and 
allows inactive non-Federal interests in the P.L. 84-99 program 
an opportunity to become eligible for assistance post-disaster, 
under certain conditions.

Other Policy Matters

    The transformative nature of the last three WRDA bills on 
the Corps Civil Works Program has provided the Corps and the 
non-Federal sponsors with a tremendous number of new 
opportunities for advancing projects more quickly. The 
Committee expects the Corps to continue to issue implementation 
guidance on the new provisions contained in this bill in an 
expeditious and transparent manner, and where appropriate, to 
solicit the view of, and consult with, a wide array of 
stakeholders in the formulation of implementation guidance.
    However, the Committee remains concerned that the Corps has 
yet to complete implementation guidance on several provisions 
enacted in the last few WRDA bills. For example, the Committee 
has received requests related to delayed implementation 
guidance related to the following enacted provisions: section 
1043(a) of WRRDA 14; section 3029(a)(1) of WRRDA 14; and 
section 1176 of WRDA 2016. The Committee expects the Corps to 
complete implementation guidance for these and any other WRDA 
provision enacted by Congress within the next 90 days.
    The Committee received several requests related to the 
potential modification of lock and dam structures on the inland 
waterways system to allow for remote operations. The Committee 
is aware of an ongoing study being carried out by the Corps 
examining the automation of lock and dam structures on the Ohio 
River Navigation System. This study will include all 55 locks 
within the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division of the Corps, 
including 19 locks on the Ohio River and 36 locks on its seven 
navigable tributaries. Once initiated, this study is authorized 
to be carried out at Federal expense, and the Corps expects the 
study to last approximately three years. In carrying out this 
study, the Committee would remind the Secretary of recent 
Congressional action to statutorily declare Corps lock and dam 
employees as inherently governmental, and directs the Secretary 
to examine any potential workforce impacts of automation and 
ensure that any recommendations in a completed study will not 
result in the loss of jobs for current lock and dam employees.
    The Committee is aware that the Corps has approved and 
implemented a major deviation for Forecast Informed Reservoir 
Operations (FIRO) at Lake Mendocino in the Russian River Valley 
in northern California. Since 2014, the Corps has been involved 
in a robust interagency group to investigate how weather 
forecast information can inform and improve water management 
decisions at Corps reservoirs. The Committee understands that, 
based on the results of the major deviation and the ongoing 
work to improve and implement forecasting, the Corps has the 
intent of incorporating FIRO into water management by updating 
the Lake Mendocino water control manual. The Committee reminds 
the Corps that there is also an authorized feasibility study 
for raising the Coyote Valley Dam at Lake Mendocino (which 
section 202(a) of WRDA 2020 directs the Corps to expedite 
completion of) which could provide further benefits for water 
supply reliability and environmental conditions in the Russia 
River, while still ensuring flood management capacity of the 
reservoir, that could also be part of incorporating FIRO into 
the Lake Mendocino water control manual.
    The Committee received several requests related to the 
Corps' use of its existing authority to perform advance 
maintenance of the Nation's Federally authorized navigation 
channels. These channels are essential to keeping the 
international supply chain open and operating efficiently 
during this period of economic recovery. The Corps is strongly 
urged to make optimum use of available authorities to ensure 
that these waterways are adequately maintained and able to 
accommodate global shipping needs and generate economic 
benefits during this critical time. The use of advance 
maintenance can be particularly impactful in channels with high 
shoaling areas. As these areas naturally silt in over time and 
are especially vulnerable to the advent of more intense storms, 
repeated advance maintenance efforts may be necessary to guard 
against depth reductions which can lead to draft restrictions 
for larger global vessels. The Corps is encouraged to fully and 
consistently maintain Federal channels at their approved 
advance maintenance depth.
    The Committee recognizes the critical importance of water 
resources development projects to the national, regional, and 
local economies of this country. However, many times, finding 
up-to-date information about Corps projects and studies is 
difficult. The Corps is encouraged to generate annual reports 
on the status of projects and studies by Congressional 
district, and to make these reports available to the public and 
accessible online.
    During the Subcommittee on Water Resources and 
Environment's March 2020 roundtable event in Baldwin Park, 
California, the Subcommittee had the opportunity to conduct a 
site visit of the dam safety modifications for the Whittier 
Narrows Dam. At that same roundtable, the Subcommittee heard 
testimony on how the Corps' dam safety construction activities 
would negatively impact certain recreational facilities located 
in the City of Pico Rivera, California. While timely completion 
of the dam safety activities at Whittier Narrows Dam must 
remain the Corps highest priority, the Corps is encouraged to 
work with the City of Pico Rivera to find ways to mitigate the 
project's impact on the recreational facilities utilized by the 
surrounding community.
    The Committee has also received an update on efforts to 
restore the riverine ecosystem related to the Blackstone River, 
Rhode Island. The Committee is aware that restoration 
activities are being carried out both by the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and 
the Corps to address fish passage issue associated with the 
Main Street Dam, which has been identified as a potential 
aquatic ecosystem restoration project under section 206 of the 
Water Resources Development Act of 1996 (33 U.S.C. 2330). The 
Committee encourages the Corps to corroborate its restoration 
activities on the Blackstone River with NRCS and the non-
Federal interests to promote a comprehensive aquatic ecosystem 
restoration effort on the river.
    The Committee has received information from the Corps on 
the approximately 2,000 employees of the Corps who wear a 
Corps' Park Ranger uniform and perform critical roles for the 
American public, including flood fighting, forestry management, 
fish and wildlife management, shoreline management, 
environmental compliance, protecting park boundaries and 
flowage easements, real estate activities, water safety, sign 
management, volunteer management, fee collection, and visitor 
center management. Generally speaking, the Committee does not 
support any effort to outsource existing positions carried out 
by Corps Federal employees, including the Corps' Park Rangers. 
The Committee is aware of three separate efforts (in 1984, in 
1990, and in 2005) where the Executive branch as undertaken an 
A-76 review of Corps Park Rangers,\18\ and in each instance, 
Corps leadership has recommended the exemption of Corps Park 
Rangers from potential outsourcing. In the last of these A-76 
reviews (2003 through 2005), the former Chief of Engineers, LTG 
Robert B. Flowers, recommended that the Secretary reclassify 
the Park Ranger position as an inherently governmental 
function, based on the Park Rangers' arrest and regulatory 
authorities. The Committee strongly encourages the Secretary to 
complete this effort and administratively reclassify the Park 
Ranger position as an inherently governmental function, based 
on previous reviews of this issue.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \18\The A-76 review process is undertaken pursuant to the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-76, which establishes 
Executive branch policy for the competition of commercial activities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Over the past few WRDAs, Congress has enacted several 
provisions to both encourage interagency partnerships in 
addressing local water resources challenges, as well as 
promoting efforts to, where appropriate, utilize natural, 
nature-based, or integrated efforts to address local stormwater 
challenges. WRDA 2020 builds on that effort by continuing to 
promote comprehensive measures to carry out multi-purpose 
projects that seek to produce multiple project benefits. The 
Committee believes that this comprehensive approach can also be 
integrated into Corps construction-related partnerships with 
other Federal agencies. The Committee is aware of a partnership 
among the Corps, the Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, 
and the Federally-supported Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan 
Planning Organization, specifically the North Central Texas 
Council of Governments, to address local stormwater challenges 
associated with regional infrastructure initiatives. The 
Committee encourages the Corps to work with other Federal 
agencies and State partners in this effort that seeks to 
prevent adverse impacts to major precipitation events, rather 
than simply to respond to such events.
    The Committee notes that construction of the project for 
control, Santa Barbara Streams, Lower Mission Creek, California 
(114 Stat. 2577; 121 Stat. 1114), was initiated by over $18 
million in non-Federal resources, which included funds from a 
voter approved benefit assessment measure; however, the project 
has not received Federal construction funding. The Committee 
encourages the Corps to initiate a reevaluation study of the 
project in order to account for population growth, property 
values, and any new disaster threats associated with the 
project area.
    The Committee has heard concern related to the process by 
which the Corps procures dredging services on the West Coast, 
including questions on the Corps' utilization of small business 
set-asides for procuring dredging contracts. An amendment (#9), 
offered and withdrawn by Mr. Garamendi, would have directed the 
Corps to develop a report on the aggregate contract award 
amounts to small business concerns within each of the mission 
areas of the Corps (Civil Works). The Committee directs the 
Secretary to compile, and transmit to the Committee within 90 
days, a report identifying, by dollar value for each mission 
area of the Corps' Civil Works responsibility, the total number 
of awards or contracts to small business concerns (as such term 
is defined in section 3(a) of the Small Business Act) for each 
Division of the Corps over the past five fiscal years.
    The Committee is aware of significant shoreline sloughing 
and erosion associated with the Okatibbee Lake, Mississippi 
project, caused by severe storms and the resulting changing 
water levels, which have the potential to impact 
infrastructure, damage property, and put lives at risk. The 
Corps is reminded that addressing shoreline sloughing and 
erosion at a Corps project, including at locations leased by 
non-Federal entities, is an activity eligible to compete for 
additional operation and maintenance funding through the Corps' 
budget workplan.
    The Success Reservoir Enlargement Project was authorized by 
section 101(b)(4) of the Water Resources Development Act of 
1999 to improve both flood damage protection and water supply. 
The Committee encourages the Corps to continue to work 
expeditiously to advance this to completion.
    The Committee encourages the Corps to expeditiously carry 
out its obligation to provide beach nourishment to the 
shoreline and affected beaches south of the New Buffalo Harbor, 
as authorized under section 101 of the Rivers and Harbors Act 
of 1962 (P.L. 87-874; 76 Stat. 1176).
    The Committee encourages the Corps to consult with and 
gather comments from Missouri River Basin State Governors and 
other stakeholders before determining whether a change or 
update to the Missouri River Master Water Control Manual is 
administrative or substantial in nature.
    The Committee is aware that there is disagreement about 
whether the Corps is meeting the Congressional intent of 
Section 1319 of WRDA 2016 (130 Stat. 1703) and commits to 
working towards finding a mutually-agreeable solution regarding 
the environmental mitigation features related to the Savannah 
Harbor Expansion Project at or below the New Savannah Bluff 
Lock and Dam. The Committee recognizes that the pool of water 
behind the Dam is currently utilized for municipal and 
industrial water supplies for Augusta, Georgia and North 
Augusta, South Carolina communities, as well as local 
recreational activities. The Committee also recognizes the 
local communities of the City of Augusta, Georgia, and the City 
of North Augusta, South Carolina, are willing to take over the 
New Savannah Bluff Lock and Dam and have passed resolutions in 
support of legislative language to turn over the New Savannah 
Bluff Lock and Dam to the local communities and accommodate 
downstream fish mitigation. The Committee further recognizes 
that an agreement is currently in place between the Corps, the 
Georgia Ports Authority, the South Carolina Department of 
Health and Environmental Control, the Savannah River Maritime 
Commission, and conservation organizations that requires the 
development of a fish passage strategy at New Savannah Bluff 
Lock and Dam. The Committee encourages all the parties involved 
to continue to work together to resolve the issues related to 
this project.
    The Committee encourages the Corps to work with non-Federal 
interests to credit an equitable value of any real property 
necessary to support a project, regardless of how the property 
was acquired by the non-Federal interest, provided that such 
credit is permitted under current law.
    The FY 2020 Corps Work Plan included a new start for a 
General Investigations study of the Lower Missouri River Basin 
for the purpose of flood risk reduction. Section 210 of this 
Act is intended to build off this existing authority to 
expeditiously review both a comprehensive plan and site-
specific solutions to combat flooding in communities Basin-
wide. While this Act specifically and preemptively waives 3x3x3 
requirements, the Committee strongly encourages the Corps to 
complete its studies as expeditiously as possible.
    The Committee renews its focus on the Cano Martin Pena 
Ecosystem Restoration Project planned for urban San Juan, 
Puerto Rico. The Committee continues to recognize the 
significance of this project for the economic revitalization, 
public health, and incidental flood protection of the eight 
communities surrounding this historically important tidal 
channel as well as for the re-establishment of the natural 
tidal exchange between the San Jose Lagoon and the San Juan 
Bay, two bodies of water with ecologically significant habitat 
for native species and ecosystem function. The Committee 
further recognizes the substantial time and effort dedicated 
across the past three decades by the non-Federal sponsor to 
plan this project in coordination with the Corps, and the 
meaningful progress made in recent years to secure its 
authorization and prepare it for the construction phase. The 
Committee encourages the Corps to consider this important 
project in the formulation of future budget requests. The Corps 
is directed to report to the Committee no later than 30 days 
after enactment of this Act on the status of, and its future 
plans, for this project. The report should include 
identification of any circumstances that may be disadvantaging 
this project from selection as a new construction start.
    The Committee received requests related to the ability of 
non-Federal interests to contribute funds to the Corps to 
assist in the maintenance of Federal navigation channels. The 
Committee notes that the Corps has existing authority to accept 
non-Federal contributions under section 210 of WRDA 1986, as 
amended (33 U.S.C. 2238) and section 2106 of WRRDA 14, as 
amended (33 U.S.C 2238c), as well as separate work authority 
under 33 U.S.C. 701h, that allows the Corps to undertake work 
in connection with dredging of a Federal navigation project. 
The Committee encourages the Corps to utilize these authorities 
as requested by non-Federal interests.
    The Committee received a request related to the legal 
obligation of the Corps to obtain easements related to coastal 
storm risk management projects that benefit privately-owned 
beaches and shorelines. Section 103(d) of WRDA 86 and the Act 
of June 28, 1956 (33 U.S.C. 426e(d)) condition Federal 
financial participation in coastal storm risk management 
projects that benefit privately-owned beaches and shorelines on 
public use of, and access to, the beach and shoreline. 
According to the Corps, since the 1990s, it has required non-
Federal interests for coastal storm risk management projects 
involving nourishment of privately-owned beaches to acquire a 
standard perpetual easement that provides the right of access 
to construct, operate, maintain, periodically renourish, and 
restore the project, but also a right of use and access to the 
public. The Committee has heard concerns from communities on 
the difficulty in obtaining an easement from each and every 
private landowner associated with a coastal storm risk 
management project, especially in areas where multiple owners 
can own a share of the properties (e.g. apartment units or 
condominiums) which can require non-Federal sponsors to obtain 
the concurrence of every owner in the facility. The Committee 
is committed to the concepts of public use and access to 
beaches and shorelines that are financially-supported by U.S. 
taxpayers; however, the Committee also understands the 
challenges facing local governments in obtaining the necessary 
approvals for required easements. The Committee encourages the 
Corps to work with local governments on ways to address the 
legal requirements of obtaining necessary approvals, while 
respecting some of the logistical challenges facing local 
governments.

                                Hearings

    For the purposes of section 103(i) of H. Res. 6 of the 
116th Congress--
    (1) The following hearings were used to develop or consider 
H.R. 7575:
    On April 10, 2019, the Subcommittee on Water Resources and 
Environment held a hearing entitled, ``The Cost of Doing 
Nothing: Why Full Utilization of the Harbor Maintenance Trust 
Fund and Investment in our Nation's Waterways Matter.'' The 
Subcommittee received testimony from Rick Goche, Commissioner 
of the Port of Bandon; Eugene Seroka, Executive Director of the 
Port of Los Angeles; Bonnie Brady, Executive Director of the 
Long Island Commercial Fishing Association; Kevin Ross, the 
First Vice President of The National Corn Growers Association; 
Phyllis Harden, Legislative and Special Projects for Pine Bluff 
Sand and Gravel Co.; Peter H. Stephaich, Chairman of the 
Campbell Transportation Company; and Kirsten Wallace, the 
Executive Director of the Upper Mississippi River Basin 
Association. Testimony focused on the role that ports, harbors, 
and inland waterways play in our communities and their 
economies.
    On July 10, 2019, the Subcommittee on Water Resources and 
Environment held a hearing entitled, ``Water Resources 
Development Acts: Status of Implementation and Assessing Future 
Needs.'' The Subcommittee received testimony from the Honorable 
R.D. James, Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works); 
Major General Scott A. Spellmon, Deputy Commanding General for 
Civil and Emergency Operations; Rob Innis, Plant Manager for 
Sparrows Point Lafarge-Holcim; Chad Berginnis, Executive 
Director of the Association of State Floodplain Managers; Tom 
Waters, Chairman of the Missouri Levee and Drainage District 
Association; Julie Hill-Gabriel, Vice President for Water 
Conservation for The National Audubon Society; Derek Brockbank, 
Executive Director of the American Shore and Beach Preservation 
Association; Marty Ralph, PhD, Director of the Center for 
Western Weather and Water Extremes at the Scripps Institution 
of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Testimony focused on the 
Corps' implementation of previous Water Resource Development 
Acts and their effect on impacted stakeholders, as well as 
potential areas of concern to be considered in future water 
resource development bills.
    On November 19, 2019, the Subcommittee on Water Resources 
and Environment held a hearing entitled, ``Concepts for the 
Next Water Resources Development Act: Promoting Resiliency of 
our Nation's Water Resources Infrastructure.'' The Subcommittee 
received testimony from Dr. Gerald Galloway, Glenn L. Martin 
Institute Professor of Engineering at the University of 
Maryland; Ann Phillips, Special Assistant to the Governor for 
Coastal Adaptation and Protection, Commonwealth of Virginia; 
Ricardo Pineda, Chair of the Association of State Floodplain 
Managers; Dr. Louis Gritzo, Vice President of FM Global 
Research Manager; Melissa Samet, Senior Water Resources Counsel 
at the National Wildlife Federation; and Julie Ufner, President 
of the National Waterways Conference. Testimony examined how 
concepts of resiliency are incorporated in the planning, 
design, construction, and operation of existing Corps projects; 
how existing infrastructure is maintained to simultaneously 
address their purposes and prepare for future extreme 
hydrologic conditions; and where the Corps could further 
implement resiliency strategies and conference into their Civil 
Works portfolio.
    On January 9, 2020, the Subcommittee on Water Resources and 
Environment held a hearing entitled, ``Proposals for a Water 
Resources Development Act of 2020.'' The Subcommittee received 
testimony directly from the Corps on pending or potential 
project studies, authorizations, and modifications; as well as 
on policy initiatives that would benefit Corps projects and 
functions. The witnesses from the Corps were the Assistant 
Secretary of the Army for Civil Works, the Honorable R.D. 
James; and the Chief of Engineers and Commanding General for

Finally, H.R. 7575, as amended, will increase equities and 
eligibilities in the Corps' primary mission areas for 
economically disadvantaged communities, rural communities, and 
tribal or minority communities, for the purposes of equal 
protection and access, as well as environmental justice.

                    Duplication of Federal Programs

    Pursuant to clause 3(c)(5) of rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the Committee finds that no provision 
of H.R. 7575, as amended, establishes or reauthorizes a program 
of the Federal government known to be duplicative of another 
federal program, a program that was included in any report from 
the Government Accountability Office to Congress pursuant to 
section 21 of Public Law 111-139, or a program related to a 
program identified in the most recent Catalog of Federal 
Domestic Assistance.

   Congressional Earmarks, Limited Tax Benefits, and Limited Tariff 
                                Benefits

    In compliance with clause 9 of rule XXI of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, this bill, as reported, contains no 
congressional earmarks, limited tax benefits, or limited tariff 
benefits as defined in clause 9(e), 9(f), or 9(g) of the rule 
XXI.

                       Federal Mandates Statement

    An estimate of Federal mandates prepared by the Director of 
the Congressional Budget Office pursuant to section 423 of the 
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act was not made available to the 
Committee in time for the filing of this report. The Chairman 
of the Committee shall cause such estimate to be printed in the 
Congressional Record upon its receipt by the Committee.

                        Preemption Clarification

    Section 423 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 
requires the report of any Committee on a bill or joint 
resolution to include a statement on the extent to which the 
bill or joint resolution is intended to preempt state, local, 
or tribal law. The Committee finds that H.R. 7575, as amended, 
does not preempt any state, local, or tribal law.

                      Advisory Committee Statement

    No advisory committees within the meaning of section 5(b) 
of the Federal Advisory Committee Act were created by this 
legislation.

                  Applicability to Legislative Branch

    The Committee finds that the legislation does not relate to 
the terms and conditions of employment or access to public 
services or accommodations within the meaning of section

the most recent Inland and Intercoastal Twenty-Year Capital 
Investment Strategy.

Sec. 109. Implementation of water resources principles and requirements

    This section directs the Corps to issue final agency 
procedures for the Principles, Requirements and Guidelines 
(PR&G), pursuant to section 2031 of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 2007. The PR&G serves as the basis for the 
Corps' evaluation of project benefits and costs. The Corps is 
required to solicit, engage, and consider public and expert 
comment prior to release of the PR&G, review the PR&Gs every 
five years, and inform stakeholders prior to any revisions for 
input and guidance.

Sec. 110. Resiliency planning assistance

    This section amends the Corps' Floodplain Management 
Service program to allow the Corps to provide technical 
assistance to non-Federal interests and other Federal agencies 
for greater resiliency planning. Additionally, this section 
directs the Corps to prioritize technical assistance to 
economically disadvantaged communities.

Sec. 111. Project consultation

    This section requires the Corps to complete previously 
authorized reports on community and tribal consultation, as 
well as update Corps policies on environmental justice 
considerations and community engagement and consultation. It 
also expands the Corps' consultation requirements with Tribal 
or indigenous groups when working on or adjacent to Tribal 
lands and areas.

Sec. 112. Review of resiliency assessments

    This section requires the Corps to update existing planning 
guidance related to sea level rise based on the best available, 
peer-reviewed science, in coordination with Federal and state 
agencies. This section also reiterates the Corps' discretion to 
consider benefits accrued over time as a result of sea level 
rise, and when requested by the non-Federal interest, requires 
the Secretary to consider whether the need for the project is 
predicated upon or exacerbated by conditions related to sea 
level rise.

Sec. 113. Small flood control projects

    This section allows for natural or nature-based 
infrastructure projects to be considered as part of the Section 
205 continuing authorities program for small flood risk 
management projects.

Sec. 114. Conforming amendment

nature-based infrastructure is 65 percent Federal and 35 
percent non-Federal, in line with the established cost share 
for non-structural project alternatives.

Sec. 115. Feasibility studies; Review of natural and nature-based 
        features

    This section directs the Corps to include in each flood 
reduction and hurricane and storm damage reduction project 
feasibility study a summary of any nature-based features that 
were considered. The Corps is directed to provide an 
explanation if nature-based features are not recommended.

Sec. 116. Report on corrosion prevention activities

    This section directs the Corps to report to Congress on 
corrosion prevention activities at Corps projects.

Sec. 117. Quantification of benefits for flood risk management projects 
        in seismic zones

    This section requires the Corps to quantify the seismic 
hazard risk reduction benefits for flood risk management 
projects, when requested by the non-Federal sponsor.

Sec. 118. Federal interest determination

    This section directs the Corps to complete a Federal 
interest determination for feasibility studies with 
economically disadvantaged communities, if requested by the 
non-Federal interest. Additionally, the Corps is directed to 
assist non-Federal interests in economically disadvantaged 
communities on how to rescope project requests to ensure that 
the project is economically justified.

Sec. 119. Economically disadvantaged community flood protection and 
        hurricane and storm damage reduction study pilot program

    This section directs the Corps to establish a pilot program 
to evaluate opportunities to address the flood risk reduction 
and hurricane and storm damage reduction needs for economically 
disadvantaged communities. The Corps is directed to select 10 
studies to be carried out at Federal expense, and the pilot 
program sunsets 10 years after enactment.

Sec. 120. Permanent measures to reduce emergency flood fighting needs 
        for communities subject to repetitive flooding

    This section provides new authority to study, design, and 
construct water resources projects for communities that have 
experienced repetitive flooding events and have received 
emergency flood fighting assistance under the Corps' P.L. 84-99 
program. The maximum Federal share for a project is $15 million 
and the Corps shall consider a community's ability to pay.

Sec. 121. Emergency response to natural disasters

    This section provides non-Federal interests with an 
opportunity to recommend proposals to the Corps to increase the 
level of protection for projects that have received assistance 
through the P.L. 84-99 program. Additionally, this section 
allows inactive non-Federal interests in the P.L. 84-99 program 
to be eligible for assistance if the non-Federal interest 
agrees to pay, during performance of the repair or restoration 
work, all costs to address items of deferred or inadequate 
maintenance and all repair or restoration work necessary to 
address damage attributable to such deficiencies. An inactive 
non-Federal interest is only eligible to use this authority 
once, and this authority sunsets in five years.

Sec. 122. Study of natural infrastructure at Corps of Engineers 
        projects

    This section directs the Comptroller General of the United 
States to report to Congress on the Corps' consideration of 
natural and nature-based features during project planning.

Sec. 123. Review of Corps of Engineers assets

    This section directs the Corps to develop an inventory of 
projects which are no longer needed to complete the missions of 
the Corps. Additionally, the Corps is directed to identify 
projects that could benefit from the addition of nature-based 
features or other modifications.

Sec. 124. Sense of Congress on multi-purpose projects

    This section provides a Sense of Congress that the Corps 
should maximize the consideration and evaluation of projects 
with multiple benefits.

Sec. 125. Beneficial reuse of dredged material; Dredged material 
        management plans

    This section renews the Congressional commitment to 
beneficial reuse of dredged material obtained from Corps 
projects and increases the authorized number of demonstration 
projects to 30 projects. Additionally, this section expands the 
Corps' considerations when evaluating the placement of dredged 
materials and when calculating the economic benefits of dredged 
material. This section also ensures that the Corps considers 
small, rural, and economically disadvantaged communities when 
selecting its additional projects. Lastly, this section 
increases the coordination of beneficial reuse projects by 
directing the Corps to develop five-year regional dredged 
material management plans.
    In directing the Corps to maximize the beneficial use of 
suitable dredged materials, the Committee does not intend for 
the Corps to only consider beneficial reuse efforts within the 
context of the beneficial reuse pilot projects authorized by 
section 1122 of the Water Resources Development Act of 2016, 
but to explore opportunities for the beneficial reuse of 
suitable materials wherever they may present themselves. This 
section provides for enhanced directives to the Secretary to 
leverage the value of dredged material in the course of 
carrying out maintenance projects. The Committee further 
encourages the Secretary to consider the use of alternative 
dredging techniques and equipment that will assure compliance 
with new and existing five-year strategic management plans, be 
environmentally protective, promote economic activities, and 
enable increased beneficial use of dredged material. The 
Committee is aware of efforts related to the dredging of the 
Richmond Outer Harbor and Pinole Shoal, California, that, the 
Committee believes, would be a promising location for employing 
such activities.
    The Committee is also aware that the Corps has selected 
only 10 of the authorized pilot projects under section 1122 of 
the Water Resources Development Act of 2016 to carry out 
beneficial use of dredged sediment, including the selection of 
the San Francisco Bay Pilot Project and development of the 
project management plan with the California State Coastal 
Conservancy. The Committee encourages the Corps to budget for 
the remaining beneficial reuse pilot projects authorized by the 
Water Resources Development Act of 2016 and this Act. The 
Committee is aware of several potential future beneficial reuse 
projects, including opportunities for beneficial use of dredged 
material from the San Joaquin River and the Port of Stockton 
for the Delta Islands and Levees Project, as authorized by 
Congress.
    Subsection (d) of this section amends section 1111 of the 
Water Resources Development Act of 2018 related to a dredged 
material pilot project. This authority was enacted to promote 
cost-effective mobilization of Corps dredging assets by 
allowing the Corps to work with non-Federal interests in 
identifying multiple projects in a geographic region that might 
be carried out under a single set of contracts. The Committee 
is aware that dredging costs can be the primary cost associated 
with shoreline protection projects. As there is so much demand 
for dredging across the country, mobilizing dredging equipment 
to a region can be a significant cost before the actual 
dredging begins, and section 1111 of WRDA 2018 was enacted to 
help address this cost. The Committee is aware of two hurricane 
and storm damage risk reduction and shoreline protection 
projects (the San Clemente Project and the Encinitas-Solana 
Beach Project, California) that will potentially be in the 
construction phase simultaneously, and encourages the Corps to 
consider utilization of the section 1111 authority to allow for 
coordinated dredging of these projects to potentially reduce 
overall project costs. The Committee continues to encourage the 
Corps to find opportunities to coordinate planning for the 
deployment of Federal and non-Federal dredges. In sequencing 
dredging work to benefit multiple mission sets and providing 
consistent navigational certainty, especially in areas of high 
maritime traffic in our nation's harbors and waterways, the 
Corps will benefit the American economy and restoration efforts 
alike. The Committee appreciates the creation of the Gulf Coast 
Regional Dredge Demonstration Program in P.L. 116-94 and 
requests that the Corps carry out these programs in conjunction 
with one another.

Sec. 126. Aquatic ecosystem restoration for anadromous fish

    This section amends the section 206 continuing authorities 
program for aquatic ecosystem restoration to include projects 
that maximize benefits for anadromous fish. This section 
directs the Corps to give projects for anadromous fish habitat 
and passage equal priority for implementation as other projects 
pursued under section 206.

Sec. 127. Annual Report to Congress

    This section requires that the Corps include in the main 
table of the Section 7001 Annual Report to Congress on Future 
Water Resources Development Projects proposed projects for 
municipal and agricultural water use.

Sec. 128. Harmful algal bloom demonstration program

    This section directs the Corps to carry out a demonstration 
program for detecting, treating, preventing, and eliminating 
harmful algal blooms. Additionally, this section directs the 
Corps to consult with Federal and state agencies and to 
maximize the use of existing data and programs.

Sec. 129. Update on Invasive Species Policy Guidance

    This section requires the Corps to update the Invasive 
Species Policy Guidance based on the most recent National 
Invasive Species Council Management Plan. The Corps may also 
include invasive species management efforts for Corps projects 
in Alpine Lakes and the Tennessee and Cumberland River Basins 
in its updated guidance.

Sec. 130. Report on debris removal

    This section directs the Corps to report to Congress on 
activities related to debris removal in the prior 10 fiscal 
years, and the extent to which the Corps plans to start 
potential debris removal activities in the future.

Sec. 131. Missouri River interception-rearing complex construction

    This section prohibits the Corps from constructing any 
additional interception-rearing complexes on the Missouri River 
until the Corps reports on their effects, conducts further 
research through the Engineer Research and Development Center, 
and develops a plan to repair certain structures affected by 
erosion. The Corps is directed to solicit public comments prior 
to constructing any additional interception-rearing complexes.

Sec. 132. Cost and benefit feasibility assessment

    This section clarifies that a non-Federal sponsor may 
contribute work to an amount sufficient to make the costs equal 
to the estimated benefits of repair work done in the P.L. 84-99 
program.
    The Committee enacted targeted changes to the P.L. 84-99 
authority in section 1161 of the Water Resources Development 
Act of 2018 to allow non-Federal interests the ability to make 
up the differential in cost-benefit analyses for flood control 
project repairs. However, the Committee is aware that other 
potential benefits of proposed repair projects can also benefit 
the cost-benefit analyses. The Corps has confirmed to the 
Committee that other benefits, such as navigation benefits, may 
already be considered in the economic analysis for a repair 
project under P.L. 84-99 (codified at 33 U.S.C. 701n) to the 
extent such benefits are incidental to flood risk management 
benefits. The Committee encourages the Corps to work with non-
Federal interest, using existing authorities and the 
authorities provided by the Water Resources Development Act of 
2020, in seeking to justify critical flood control project 
repairs.

Sec. 133. Materials, services, and funds for repair, restoration, or 
        rehabilitation of projects

    This section allows the Corps to reimburse a non-Federal 
interest or private party for contributed materials, funds, or 
services in the case of emergency or major disaster 
declarations, if the Corps determines that reimbursement is in 
the public interest. Any work contributed under this section 
must comply with all applicable Corps laws and regulations 
regarding acquired materials and services.

Sec. 134. Levee safety

    This section directs the Corps to identify specific 
engineering and maintenance deficiencies for certain levees 
within the National Levee Database.

Sec. 135. National dam safety program

    This section makes changes to FEMA's High Hazard Potential 
Dam Rehabilitation Program, including making eligible for the 
program hydropower dams that generate less than 1.5 megawatts.

Sec. 136. Rehabilitation of Corps of Engineers constructed pump 
        stations

    This section allows the Corps to make repairs and 
improvements to Corps-constructed pump stations with identified 
major deficiencies and the failure of which would impair the 
function of flood risk management projects. This section also 
requires the Corps to undertake an inventory of Federally 
constructed pump stations.

Sec. 137. Non-Federal Project Implementation Pilot Program

    This section extends the Non-Federal Project Implementation 
Pilot Program until 2026. The Secretary is required to issue 
implementation guidance 120 days after enactment of this Act.

Sec. 138. Definition of economically disadvantaged community

    This section provides a definition of economically 
disadvantaged community for purposes of this Act.

Sec. 139. Cost sharing provisions for territories and indian tribes

    This section amends section 1156 of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 1986 to permanently adjust the current cost 
share threshold for inflation.

Sec. 140. Flood control and other purposes

    This section authorizes the Secretary and the non-Federal 
interest to enter into negotiations related to the terms of 
eligible deferred payment agreements.
    The Committee acknowledges the deferred interest 
obligations of the State of Louisiana from the construction of 
the Hurricane Protection System in the wake of Hurricane 
Katrina. This section provides authority for the Corps and the 
State to seek to renegotiate the terms and conditions of 
deferred payment agreements made with the Secretary under 
Section 103(k) of WRDA 1986. The Committee is aware of the 
State's desire to renegotiate the terms of the West Bank and 
Vicinity, Lake Pontchartrain and Vicinity, and Southeast 
Louisiana Urban Flood Damage Reduction Projects. The Committee 
encourages the Corps to work with the State in the 
implementation of this section, which the State argues will 
allow the State to continue make new investments to support 
resiliency in both the State's water resources related 
infrastructure and ecosystem restoration projects.

Sec. 141. Review of contracting policies

    This section directs the Secretary to review the policies, 
guidelines, and regulations of the Corps for the development of 
contractual agreements between the Secretary and non-Federal 
interests and utilities associated with the construction of 
water resources development projects, and to provide a best 
practices guide to non-Federal interests prior to the 
development of future contractual agreements.

Sec. 142. Buy America

    This section requires that all Corps construction and 
rehabilitation contracts awarded after the date of enactment of 
this section ensure that the steel components furnished and 
delivered under such contracts be manufactured or fabricated in 
whole or substantial part in the United States.

Sec. 143. Annual report on status of feasibility studies

    This section requires the Secretary to provide an 
accounting of all outstanding Corps feasibility studies being 
conducted by the Secretary concurrent with the annual report to 
Congress under section 7001 of the WRRDA 14.

                     TITLE II--STUDIES AND REPORTS

Sec. 201. Authorization of proposed feasibility studies

    This section authorizes the Corps to conduct feasibility 
studies for 35 projects for water resources development and 
conservation and other purposes. These feasibility studies were 
submitted in a Report to Congress on Future Water Resources 
Development pursuant to Section 7001 of the WRRDA 14 or were 
otherwise reviewed by Congress.

Sec. 202. Expedited completions

    This section directs the Corps to expedite the completion 
of 33 feasibility studies currently underway. Upon completion 
of the study, if the Corps determines that the project is 
justified, the Corps may proceed directly to preconstruction 
planning, engineering, and design. This section also directs 
the Corps to expedite the completion of the following reviews 
currently underway: post-authorization change reports for five 
projects, watershed assessments for two projects, and a 
disposition study for one project.
    Section 202(a) directs the Corps to expedite the completion 
of the study for the project for flood risk management, Lower 
Santa Cruz. In completing this study, the Corps is directed to 
consult with, and seek to address, any concerns of local 
communities and tribes in the vicinity of the project.
    Section 202(a) also directs the Corps to expedite the 
completion of the study for flood risk management, Rahway River 
Basin, New Jersey. The Committee is aware that the North 
Atlantic Division of the Corps has suggested that further study 
of this project is not warranted--a position which is not 
shared by the non-Federal interest for this project nor the 
communities this project was authorized to protect. The Corps 
is directed to continue to work with the non-Federal interest 
and the surrounding communities in the formulation of an 
acceptable alternative to the project that would be in the 
Federal interest. The Secretary is directed to utilize the 
authorities included in this Act and the Corps' own discretion 
to develop this alternative, as expeditiously as possible, and 
expects the Corps to provide the Committee with regular updates 
on its progress.
    The past three Water Resources Development Acts, in 2014, 
2016, and 2018, included provisions similar to section 202 to 
encourage the Corps to expedite completion of ongoing studies 
related to water resources development projects. Several of the 
studies highlighted in those earlier Acts have resulted in 
completed Chief's Reports and other decision documents that 
have subsequently been acted on by Congress, including several 
Chief's Reports included in the Water Resources Development Act 
of 2020. However, other expedited studies remain incomplete, 
including the projects for flood risk management, for East 
Hartford and Hartford, Connecticut, listed in section 1203(a) 
of the Water Resources Development Act of 2016.\19\ The 
Committee expects the Corps to expedite the completion of all 
feasibility studies specifically identified by Congress, as 
quickly as possible, and, in accordance with such authorities, 
if the Secretary determines that the project is justified in 
the completed report, to proceed directly to preconstruction 
planning, engineering, and design of the project.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \19\See Paragraphs 1203(a)(11) and (12) of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 2018 (132 Stat. 3803).

projects, and activities undertaken for addressing 
conservation, protection, restoration, and maintenance of the 
coastal Louisiana ecosystem, as well as the financial 
participation by each agency represented on the Task Force.

Sec. 210. Lower Mississippi River comprehensive study

    This section directs the Corps to submit a report to 
Congress that includes the results of a comprehensive study of 
the Lower Mississippi Basin and identifies actions the Corps 
can take for the comprehensive management of the Basin for the 
purposes of flood risk management, navigation, ecosystem 
restoration, water supply, hydropower, and recreation.

Sec. 211. Upper Mississippi River comprehensive plan

    This section directs the Corps to conduct an assessment of 
the water resources needs of the Upper Mississippi River Basin.

Sec. 212. Lower Missouri Basin flood risk and resiliency study, Iowa, 
        Kansas, Nebraska, and Missouri

    This section directs the Corps to expand the scope of the 
Lower Missouri Basin study, or otherwise carry out additional 
studies to identify site specific flood risk reduction 
solutions. The section also requires additional consultation 
measures for any recommended actions and specifies that the 
study is not subject to the traditional Corps cost and duration 
limitations.

Sec. 213. Portsmouth Harbor and Piscataqua River and Rye Harbor, New 
        Hampshire

    This section directs the Secretary to issue a written 
status update to Congress on two authorized Federal navigation 
projects: the project for navigation, Rye Harbor, New 
Hampshire, and the project for navigation, Portsmouth Harbor 
and Piscataqua River, New Hampshire.

Sec. 214. Cougar and Detroit Dams, Willamette River Basin, Oregon

    This section directs the Corps to submit a report to 
Congress on the initial analysis of deauthorizing hydropower as 
an authorized project purpose at Cougar and Detroit Dams. For 
the purposes of this section, the Detroit Dam project includes 
all facilities that operate in conjunction with the main

        than a nonstructural project) shall--
                  (A) pay 5 percent of the cost of the project 
                assigned to flood control during construction 
                of the project;
                  (B) provide all lands, easements, rights-of-
                way, and dredged material disposal areas 
                required only for flood control and perform all 
                related necessary relocations; and
                  (C) provide that portion of the joint costs 
                of lands, easements, rights-of-way, dredged 
                material disposal areas, and relocations which 
                is assigned to flood control.
          (2)  35 percent minimum contribution.--If the value 
        of the contributions required under paragraph (1) of 
        this subsection is less than 35 percent of the cost of 
        the project assigned to flood control, the non-Federal 
        interest shall pay during construction of the project 
        such additional amounts as are necessary so that the 
        total contribution of the non-Federal interests under 
        this subsection is equal to 35 percent of the cost of 
        the project assigned to flood control.
          (3)  50 percent maximum.--The non-Federal share under 
        paragraph (1) shall not exceed 50 percent of the cost 
        of the project assigned to flood control. The preceding 
        sentence does not modify the requirement of paragraph 
        (1)(A) of this subsection.
          (4) Deferred payment of amount exceeding 30 
        percent.--If the total amount of the contribution 
        required under paragaph (1) of this subsection exceeds 
        30 percent of the cost of the project assigned to flood 
        control, the non-Federal interests may pay the amount 
        of the excess to the Secretary over a 15-year period 
        (or such shorter period as many be agreed to by the 
        Secretary and the non-Federal interests) beginning on 
        the date construction of the project or separable 
        element is completed, at an interest rate determined 
        pursuant to section 106. The preceding sentence does 
        not modify the requirement of paragraph (1)(A) of this 
        subsection.

        percent.
          (2) Non-federal contribution in excess of 35 
        percent.--At any time during construction of a project, 
        if the Secretary determines that the costs of land, 
        easements, rights-of-way, dredged material disposal 
        areas, and relocations for the project, in combination 
        with other costs contributed by the non-Federal 
        interests, will exceed 35 percent, any additional costs 
        for the project (not to exceed 65 percent of the total

        Secretary--
                  (A) shall terminate or suspend work on the 
                project unless the Secretary determines that 
                continuation of the work is in the interest of 
                the United States or is necessary in order to 
                satisfy agreements with other non-Federal 
                interests in connection with the project; and
                  (B) may terminate or adjust the rights and

                        interest accrued during the period of 
                        construction; and
                          (iv) a credit against construction 
                        interest for a non-Federal investment 
                        that benefits the completion or 
                        performance of the project or separable 
                        element.
                  (B) Eligible deferred payment.--An eligible 
                deferred payment agreement under subparagraph 
                (A) is an agreement for which--
                          (i) the non-Federal contribution was 
                        made with interest;

                        by the non-Federal interest (including 
                        in-kind contributions) to remedy a 
                        design or construction deficiency of a 
                        covered project or separable element 
                        toward the non-Federal share of the 
                        cost of the covered project, if the 
                        Secretary determines the remedy to be 
                        integral to the completion or

                          (ii) Credit of costs.--If the non-
                        Federal interest incurs costs or in-
                        kind contributions for a project to 
                        remedy a design or construction 
                        deficiency of a project or separable 
                        element which has a 100 percent Federal 
                        cost share, and the Secretary 
                        determines the remedy to be integral to 
                        the completion or performance of the 
                        project, the Secretary is authorized to 
                        credit such costs to any interest 
                        accrued on a deferred non-Federal 
                        contribution.
  (l) Delay of Initial Payment.--At the request of any non-
Federal interest the Secretary may permit such non-Federal 
interest to delay the initial payment of any non-Federal 
contribution under this section or section 101 for up to one 
year after the date when construction is begun on the project 
for which such contribution is to be made. Any such delay in 
initial payment shall be subject to interest charges for up to 
six months at a rate determined pursuant to section 106.
  (m) Ability To Pay.--
          (1) In general.--Any cost-sharing agreement under 
        this section for a feasibility study, or for 
        construction of an environmental protection and 
        restoration project, a flood control project, a project 
        for navigation, storm damage protection, shoreline 
        erosion, hurricane protection, or recreation, or an 
        agricultural water supply project, shall be subject to 
        the ability of the non-Federal interest to pay.
          (2) Criteria and procedures.--The ability of a non-
        Federal interest to pay shall be determined by the 
        Secretary in accordance with criteria and procedures in 
        effect under paragraph (3) on the day before the date 
        of enactment of the Water Resources Development Act of 
        2000; except that such criteria and procedures shall be 
        revised, and new criteria and procedures shall be 
        developed, not later than December 31, 2007 to reflect 
        the requirements of such paragraph (3).
          (3) Revision of criteria and procedures.--In revising 
        criteria and procedures pursuant to paragraph (2), the 
        Secretary--
                  (A) shall consider--

                        county or counties in which the project 
                        is to be located; and
                          (ii) the per capita non-Federal cost 
                        of construction of the project for the 
                        county or counties in which the project 
                        is to be located; and
                  (B) may consider additional criteria relating 
                to the non-Federal interest's financial ability 
                to carry out its cost-sharing responsibilities, 
                to the extent that the application of such 
                criteria does not eliminate areas from 
                eligibility for a reduction in the non-Federal 
                share as determined under subparagraph (A).
          (4) Non-federal share.--Notwithstanding subsection 
        (a), the Secretary may reduce the requirement that a 
        non-Federal interest make a cash contribution for any 
        project that is determined to be eligible for a 
        reduction in the non-Federal share under criteria and 
        procedures in effect under paragraphs (1), (2), and 
        (3).
  (n) Non-Federal Contributions.--
          (1) Prohibition on solicitation of excess 
        contributions.--The Secretary may not--
                  (A) solicit contributions from non-Federal 
                interests for costs of constructing authorized 
                water resources projects or measures in excess 
                of the non-Federal share assigned to the 
                appropriate project purposes listed in 
                subsections (a), (b), and (c); or
                  (B) condition Federal participation in such 
                projects or measures on the receipt of such 
                contributions.
          (2) Limitation on statutory construction.--Nothing in 
        this subsection shall be construed to affect the 
        Secretary's authority under section 903(c).

  (a) Submission to Secretary.--
          (1) In general.--A non-Federal interest may undertake 
        a federally authorized feasibility study of a proposed 
        water resources development project and submit the 
        study to the Secretary.
          (2) Guidelines.--To assist non-Federal interests, the 
        Secretary, as soon as practicable, shall issue 
        guidelines for feasibility studies of water resources 
        development projects to provide sufficient information 
        for the formulation of the studies.
  (b) Review by Secretary.--The Secretary shall review each 
feasibility study received under subsection (a)(1) for the 
purpose of determining whether or not the study, and the 
process under which the study was developed, each comply with 
Federal laws and regulations applicable to feasibility studies 
of water resources development projects.
  (c) Submission to Congress.--
          (1) Review and submission of studies to congress.--
        Not later than 180 days after the date of receipt of a 
        feasibility study of a project under subsection (a)(1), 
        the Secretary shall submit to the Committee on 
        Environment and Public Works of the Senate and the 
        Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure of the 
        House of Representatives [a report] an assessment that 
        describes--
                  (A) the results of the Secretary's review of 
                the study under subsection (b), including a 
                determination of whether the project is 
                feasible;
                  (B) any recommendations the Secretary may 
                have concerning the plan or design of the

                for construction of the project.
          (2) Limitation.--The completion of the review by the 
        Secretary of a feasibility study that has been 
        submitted under subsection (a)(1) may not be delayed as 
        a result of consideration being given to changes in 
        policy or priority with respect to project 
        consideration.
  (d) Credit.--If a project for which a feasibility study has 
been submitted under subsection (a)(1) is authorized by a 
Federal law enacted after the date of the submission to 
Congress under subsection (c), the Secretary shall credit 
toward the non-Federal share of the cost of construction of the 
project an amount equal to the portion of the cost of 
developing the study that would have been the responsibility of 
the United States if the study had been developed by the 
Secretary.
  (e) Review and Technical Assistance.--
          (1) Review.--The Secretary may accept and expend 
        funds provided by non-Federal interests to undertake

        interest contracts with the Secretary to pay all costs 
        of providing such technical assistance.
          (3) Limitation.--Funds provided by non-Federal 
        interests under this subsection shall not be eligible 
        for credit under subsection (d) or reimbursement.
          (4) Impartial decisionmaking.--In carrying out this 
        section, the Secretary shall ensure that the use of 
        funds accepted from a non-Federal interest will not 
        affect the impartial decisionmaking of the Secretary, 
        either substantively or procedurally.
          (5) Savings provision.--The provision of technical 
        assistance by the Secretary under paragraph (2)--
                  (A) shall not be considered to be an approval 
                or endorsement of the feasibility study; and
                  (B) shall not affect the responsibilities of 
                the Secretary under subsections (b) and (c).

                element has been filed.
          (3) Permit exception.--
                  (A) In general.--For a project described in 
                subsection (a)(1) or subsection (a)(3), or a 
                separable element thereof, with respect to 
                which a written agreement described in 
                subparagraph (B) has been entered into, a non-
                Federal interest that carries out a project 
                under this section shall not be required to 
                obtain any Federal permits or approvals that 
                would not be required if the Secretary carried 
                out the project or separable element unless 
                significant new circumstances or information 
                relevant to environmental concerns or 
                compliance have arisen since development of the

                  (B) Written agreement.--For purposes of this 
                paragraph, a written agreement shall provide 
                that the non-Federal interest shall comply with 
                the same legal and technical requirements that 
                would apply if the project or separable element 
                were carried out by the Secretary, including 
                all mitigation required to offset environmental 
                impacts of the project or separable element as 
                determined by the Secretary.
                  (C) Certifications.--Notwithstanding 
                subparagraph (A), if a non-Federal interest 
                carrying out a project under this section 
                would, in the absence of a written agreement 
                entered into under this paragraph, be required 
                to obtain a certification from a State under 
                Federal law to carry out the project, such 
                certification shall still be required if a 
                written agreement is entered into with respect

                non-Federal interest may request that the 
                Secretary transfer to the non-Federal interest 
                all relevant data and documentation under the 
                control of the Secretary with respect to that 
                water resources development project.

beginning on the date of enactment of this Act unless during 
such period funds have been obligated for construction, 
including planning and designing, of such project.
  (b)(1) Not later than one year after the date of enactment of 
this Act, the Secretary shall transmit to Congress a list of 
unconstructed projects, or unconstructed separable elements of 
projects, which have been authorized, but have received no 
obligations during the 10 full fiscal years preceding the 
transmittal of such list. A project or separable element 
included in such list is not authorized after December 31, 
1989, if the funds have not been obligated for construction of 
such project or element after the date of enactment of this Act 
and before December 31, 1989.
  [(2) Notwithstanding section 3003 of Public Law 104-66 (31

transmittal of the list under paragraph (1), the Secretary 
shall transmit to Congress a list of projects or separable 
elements of projects which have been authorized, but have 
received no obligations during the 5 full fiscal years 
preceding the transmittal of such list. Upon submission of such 
list to Congress, the Secretary shall notify each Senator in 
whose State, and each Member of the House of Representatives in 
whose district, a project (including any part thereof) on such 
list would be located. A project or separable element included 
in such list is not authorized after the date which is the last 
date of the fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the 
list is so transmitted if funds have not been obligated for the 
planning, design, or construction of such project or element 
during such period.]

SEC. 1103. UPPER MISSISSIPPI RIVER PLAN.

  (a)(1) This section may be cited as the ``Upper Mississippi 
River Management Act of 1986''.
  (2) To ensure the coordinated development and enhancement of 
the Upper Mississippi River system, it is hereby declared to be 
the intent of Congress to recognize that system as a nationally 
significant ecosystem and a nationally significant commercial 
navigation system. Congress further recognizes that the system 
provides a diversity of opportunities and experiences. The 
system shall be administered and regulated in recognition of 
its several purposes.
  (b) For purposes of this section--
          (1) the term ``Upper Mississippi River system'' and 
        ``system'' mean those river reaches having commercial 
        navigation channels on the Mississippi River main stem 
        north of Cairo, Illinois; the Minnesota River, 
        Minnesota; Black River, Wisconsin; Saint Croix River, 
        Minnesota and Wisconsin; Illinois River and Waterway, 
        Illinois; and Kaskakia River, Illinois;
          (2) the term ``Master Plan'' means the comprehensive 
        master plan for the management of the Upper Mississippi 
        River system, dated January 1, 1982, prepared by the 
        Upper Mississippi River Basin Commission and submitted 
        to Congress pursuant to Public Law 95-502;
          (3) the term ``GREAT I, GREAT II, and GRRM studies'' 
        means the studies entitled ``GREAT Environmental Action 
        Team--GREAT I--A Study of the Upper Mississippi 
        River'', dated September 1980, ``GREAT River 
        Environmental Action Team--GREAT II--A Study of the 
        Upper Mississippi River'', dated December 1980, and 
        ``GREAT River Resource Management Study'', dated 
        September 1982; and
          (4) the term ``Upper Mississippi River Basin 
        Association'' means an association of the States of 
        Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin, 
        formed for the purposes of cooperative effort and 
        united assistance in the comprehensive planning for the 
        use, protection, growth, and development of the Upper 
        Mississippi River System.
  (c)(1) Congress hereby approves the Master Plan as a guide 
for future water policy on the Upper Mississippi River system. 
Such approval shall not constitute authorization of any 
recommendation contained in the Master Plan.
  (2) Section 101 of Public Law 95-502 is amended by striking 
out the last two sentences of subsection (b), striking out 
subsection (i), striking out the final sentence of subsection 
(j), and redesignating subsection ``(j)'' as subsection

  (d)(1) The consent of the Congress is hereby given to the 
States of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin, 
or any two or more of such States, to enter into negotiations 
for agreements, not in conflict with any law of the United 
States, for cooperative effort and mutual assistance in the 
comprehensive planning for the use, protection, growth, and 
development of the Upper Mississippi River system, and to 
establish such agencies, joint or otherwise, or designate an 
existing multi-State entity, as they may deem desirable for 
making effective such agreements. To the extent required by 
Article I, section 10 of the Constitution, such agreements 
shall become final only after ratification by an Act of 
Congress.
  (2) The Secretary is authorized to enter into cooperative 
agreements with the Upper Mississippi River Basin Association 
or any other agency established under paragraph (1) of this 
subsection to promote and facilitate active State government

SEC. 1043. NON-FEDERAL IMPLEMENTATION PILOT PROGRAM.

  (a) Non-Federal Implementation of Feasibility Studies.--
          (1) In general.--Not later than 180 days after the 
        date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall 
        establish and implement a pilot program to evaluate the 
        cost-effectiveness and project delivery efficiency of 
        allowing non-Federal interests to carry out feasibility 
        studies for flood risk management, hurricane and storm 
        damage reduction, aquatic ecosystem restoration, and 
        coastal harbor and channel and inland navigation.
          (2) Purposes.--The purposes of the pilot program 
        are--
                  (A) to identify project delivery and cost-
                saving alternatives to the existing feasibility 
                study process;
                  (B) to evaluate the technical, financial, and 
                organizational efficiencies of a non-Federal 
                interest carrying out a feasibility study of 1 
                or more projects; and
                  (C) to evaluate alternatives for the 
                decentralization of the project planning, 
                management, and operational decisionmaking 
                process of the Corps of Engineers.
          (3) Administration.--
                  (A) In general.--On the request of a non-
                Federal interest, the Secretary may enter into 
                an agreement with the non-Federal interest for 
                the non-Federal interest to provide full 
                project management control of a feasibility 
                study for a project for--
                          (i) flood risk management;
                          (ii) hurricane and storm damage 
                        reduction, including levees, 
                        floodwalls, flood control channels, and 
                        water control structures;
                          (iii) coastal harbor and channel and 
                        inland navigation; and
                          (iv) aquatic ecosystem restoration.
                  (B) Use of non-federal funds.--
                          (i) In general.--A non-Federal 
                        interest that has entered into an 
                        agreement with the Secretary pursuant 
                        to subparagraph (A) may use non-Federal 
                        funds to carry out the feasibility 
                        study.
                          (ii) Credit.--The Secretary shall 
                        credit towards the non-Federal share of 
                        the cost of construction of a project 
                        for which a feasibility study is 
                        carried out under this subsection an 
                        amount equal to the portion of the cost 
                        of developing the study that would have 
                        been the responsibility of the 
                        Secretary, if the study were carried 
                        out by the Secretary, subject to the

                                activities that would have been 
                                the responsibility of the 
                                Secretary;
                                  (II) the Secretary determines 
                                that the feasibility study 
                                complies with all applicable 
                                Federal laws and regulations;

                                  (III) the project is 
                                authorized by any provision of 
                                Federal law enacted after the 
                                date on which an agreement is 
                                entered into under subparagraph

guidance of Federal and non-Federal interests and agencies in 
the use of flood plain areas; and to provide advice to other 
Federal agencies and local interests for their use in planning 
to ameliorate the flood hazard, to avoid repetitive flooding 
impacts, to anticipate, prepare, and adapt to changing climatic 
conditions and extreme weather events, and to withstand, 
respond to, and recover rapidly from disruption due to the 
flood hazards. Surveys and guides will be made for States and 
political subdivisions thereof only upon the request of a State 
or a political subdivision thereof, and upon approval by the 
Chief of Engineers, and such information and advice provided 
them only upon such request and approval.

nonstructural projects, and projects that use natural features 
or nature-based features (as those terms are defined in section 
1184(a) of the Water Resources Development Act of 2016 (33 
U.S.C. 2289a(a))), for flood control and related purposes not 
specifically authorized by Congress, which come within the 
provisions of section 1 of the Flood Control Act of June 22, 
1936, when in the opinion of the Chief of Engineers such work 
is advisable. The amount allotted for a project shall be 
sufficient to complete Federal participation in the project. 
Not more than $10,000,000 shall be allotted under this section 
for a project at any single locality. The provisions of local 
cooperation specified in section 3 of the Flood Control Act of 
June 22, 1936, as amended, shall apply. The work shall be 
complete in itself and not commit the United States to any 
additional improvement to insure its successful operation, 
except as may result from the normal procedure applying to 
projects authorized after submission of preliminary examination 
and survey reports.

                                        operation or 
                                        maintenance; and

flood control work's status in the Rehabilitation and 
Inspection Program carried out pursuant to section 5 of the Act

emergency project for the non-Federal flood control work that 
was formulated during the [three fiscal years preceding] five 
fiscal years preceding the fiscal year in which this Act was 
enacted but that was determined to not produce benefits greater 
than costs shall remain eligible for assistance under such 
section 5 until the [last day of the third fiscal year] last 
day of the fifth fiscal year following the fiscal year in which 
this Act was enacted if--
          (1) the non-Federal sponsor agrees, in accordance 
        with such section 5, as amended by this Act, to pay, or 
        provide contributions equal to, an amount sufficient to 
        make the remaining costs of the project equal to the 
        estimated value of the benefits of the repair or 
        restoration work; and
          [(2) the Secretary determines that--
                  [(A) the damage to the structure was not as a 
                result of negligent operation or maintenance; 
                and
                  [(B) repair of the project could benefit 
                another Corps project.]
          (2) the Secretary determines that the damage to the 
        structure was not as a result of negligent operation or 
        maintenance.

                        critical for interests of the United 
                        States, based on the possible impact of

                         ACT OF AUGUST 18, 1941

  Sec. 5. (a)(1) That there is authorized an emergency fund to 
be expended in preparation for emergency response to any 
natural disaster, in flood fighting and rescue operations, or 
in the repair or restoration of any flood control work 
threatened or destroyed by flood, including the strengthening, 
raising, extending, realigning, or other modification thereof 
as may be necessary in the discretion of the Chief of Engineers 
for the adequate functioning of the work for flood control and 
subject to the condition that the Chief of Engineers may 
include modifications to the structure or project, or in 
implementation of nonstructural alternatives to the repair or 
restoration of such flood control work if requested by the non-
Federal sponsor; in the emergency protection of federally 
authorized hurricane or shore protection being threatened when 
in the discretion of the Chief of Engineers such protection is 
warranted to protect against imminent and substantial loss to 
life and property; in the repair and restoration of any 
federally authorized hurricane or shore protective structure or 
project damaged or destroyed by wind, wave, or water action of 
other than an ordinary nature to either the pre-storm level or 
the design level of protection, whichever provides greater 
protection, when, in the discretion of the Chief of Engineers, 
such repair and restoration is warranted for the adequate 
functioning of the structure or project for hurricane or shore 
protection, subject to the condition that the Chief of 
Engineers may include modifications to the structure or project 
to address major deficiencies or implement nonstructural 
alternatives to the repair or restoration of the structure if 
requested by the non-Federal sponsor. The emergency fund may 
also be expended for emergency dredging for restoration of 
authorized project depths for Federal navigable channels and 
waterways made necessary by flood, drought, earthquake, or 
other natural disasters. In any case in which the Chief of 
Engineers is otherwise performing work under this section in an 
area for which the Governor of the affected State has requested 
a determination that an emergency exists or a declaration that 
a major disaster exists under the Disaster Relief and Emergency 
Assistance Act, the Chief of Engineers is further authorized to 
perform on public and private lands and waters for a period of 
ten days following the Governor's request any emergency work 
made necessary by such emergency or disaster which is essential 
for the preservation of life and property, including, but not 
limited to, channel clearance, emergency shore protection, 
clearance and removal of debris and wreckage endangering public 
health and safety, and temporary restoration of essential 
public facilities and services. The Chief of Engineers, in the 
exercise of his discretion, is further authorized to provide 
emergency supplies of clean water, on such terms as he 
determines to be advisable, to any locality which he finds is 
confronted with a source of contaminated water causing or 
likely to cause a substantial threat to the public health and 
welfare of the inhabitants of the locality. The appropriation 
of such moneys for the initial establishment of this fund and 
for its replenishment on an annual basis, is authorized: 
Provided, That pending the appropriation of sums to such 
emergency fund, the Secretary of the Army may allot, from 
existing flood-control appropriations, such sums as may be 
necessary for the immediate prosecution of the work herein 
authorized, such appropriations to be reimbursed from the 
appropriation herein authorized when made. The Chief of 
Engineers is authorized, in the prosecution of work in 
connection with rescue operations, or in conducting other flood 
emergency work, to acquire on a rental basis such motor 
vehicles, including passenger cars and buses, as in his 
discretion are deemed necessary.
          (2) Cost and benefit feasibility assessment.--
                  (A) Consideration of benefits.--In preparing 
                a cost and benefit feasibility assessment for 
                any emergency project described in paragraph 
                (1), the Chief of Engineers shall consider the 
                benefits to be gained by such project for the 
                protection of--
                          (i) residential establishments;
                          (ii) commercial establishments, 
                        including the protection of inventory; 
                        and
                          (iii) agricultural establishments, 
                        including the protection of crops.
                  (B) Special conditions.--
                          (i) Authority to carry out work.--The 
                        Chief of Engineers may carry out repair 
                        or restoration work described in 
                        paragraph (1) that does not produce 
                        benefits greater than the cost if--
                                  (I) the non-Federal sponsor 
                                agrees to pay, or provide 
                                contributions equal to, an 
                                amount sufficient to make the 
                                remaining costs of the project 
                                equal to the estimated value of 
                                the benefits of the repair or 
                                restoration work; and
                                  (II) the Secretary determines 
                                that--
                                          (aa) the damage to 
                                        the structure was not a 
                                        result of negligent 
                                        operation or 
                                        maintenance; and
                                          (bb) repair of the 
                                        project could benefit 
                                        another Corps project.
                          (ii) Treatment of payments and 
                        contributions.--Non-Federal payments or 
                        contributions pursuant to clause (i) 
                        shall be in addition to any non-Federal 
                        payments or contributions required by 
                        the Chief of Engineers that are 
                        applicable to the remaining costs of 
                        the repair or restoration work.
          (3) Extended assistance.--Upon request by a locality 
        receiving assistance under the fourth sentence of 
        paragraph (1), the Secretary shall, subject to the 
        availability of appropriations, enter into an agreement 
        with the locality to provide such assistance beyond the 
        time period otherwise provided for by the Secretary 
        under such sentence.
          (4) Nonstructural alternatives defined.--In this 
        subsection, the term ``nonstructural alternatives'' 
        includes efforts to restore or protect natural 
        resources, including streams, rivers, floodplains, 
        wetlands, or coasts, if those efforts will reduce flood 
        risk.
          (5) Feasibility study.--
                  (A) Determination.--Not later than 180 days 
                after receiving, from a non-Federal sponsor of 
                a project to repair or rehabilitate a flood 
                control work described in paragraph (1), a 
                request to initiate a feasibility study to 
                further modify the relevant flood control work 
                to provide for an increased level of 
                protection, the Secretary shall provide to the 
                non-Federal sponsor a written decision on 
                whether the Secretary has the authority under 
                section 216 of the Flood Control Act of 1970 
                (33 U.S.C. 549a) to undertake the requested 
                feasibility study.
                  (B) Recommendation.--If the Secretary

  (b)(1) The Secretary, upon a written request for assistance 
under this paragraph made by any farmer, rancher, or political 
subdivision within a distressed area, and after a determination 
by the Secretary that (A) as a result of the drought such 
farmer, rancher, or political subdivision has an inadequate 
supply of water, (B) an adequate supply of water can be made 
available to such farmer, rancher, or political subdivision 
through the construction of a well, and (C) as a result of the

water and water cannot be obtained by such farmer, rancher, or 
political subdivision, the Secretary may transport water to 
such farmer, rancher, or political subdivision by methods which 
include, but are not limited to, small-diameter emergency water 
lines and tank trucks, until such time as the Secretary 
determines that an adequate supply of water is available to 
such farmer, rancher, or political subdivision.
  (3)(A) Any agreement entered into by the Secretary pursuant 
to paragraph (1) of this subsection shall require the farmer, 
rancher, or political subdivision for whom the well is 
constructed to pay to the United States the reasonable cost of 
such construction, with interest, over such number of years, 
not to exceed thirty, as the Secretary deems appropriate. The 
rate of interest shall be that rate which the Secretary 
determines would apply if the amount to be repaid was a loan 
made pursuant to section 7(b)(2) of the Small Business Act.
  (B) The Secretary shall not construct any well pursuant to 
this subsection unless the farmer, rancher, or political 
subdivision for whom the well is being constructed has 
obtained, prior to construction, all necessary State and local 
permits.

                maintenance and general upkeep of a levee 
                performed on a regular and consistent basis 
                that is not repair and rehabilitation.
                  (B) Repair and rehabilitation.--The term 
                ``repair and rehabilitation''--
                          (i) means the repair or rebuilding of 
                        a levee or other flood control 
                        structure, after the structure has been 
                        damaged by a flood, to the level of 
                        protection provided by the structure 
                        before the flood; but
                          (ii) does not include--
                                  (I) any improvement to the 
                                structure; or
                                  (II) repair or rebuilding 
                                described in clause (i) if, in 
                                the normal course of usage, the 
                                structure becomes structurally 
                                unsound and is no longer fit to 
                                provide the level of protection 
                                for which the structure was 
                                designed.
  (d) Increased Level of Protection.--In conducting repair or 
restoration work under subsection (a), at the request of the 
non-Federal sponsor, the Chief of Engineers may increase the 
level of protection above the level to which the system was 
designed, or, if the repair or restoration includes repair or 
restoration of a pumping station, increase the capacity of a 
pump, if--
          (1) the Chief of Engineers determines the 
        improvements are in the public interest, including 
        consideration of whether--
                  (A) the authority under this section has been 
                used more than once at the same location;
                  (B) there is an opportunity to decrease 
                significantly the risk of loss of life and 
                property damage; or
                  (C) there is an opportunity to decrease total 
                life cycle rehabilitation costs for the 
                project; and
          (2) the non-Federal sponsor agrees to pay the 
        difference between the cost of repair or restoration to 
        the original design level or original capacity and the 
        cost of achieving the higher level of protection or 
        capacity sought by the non-Federal sponsor.
  (e) Notice.--The Secretary shall notify and consult with the 
non-Federal sponsor regarding the opportunity to request 
implementation of nonstructural alternatives to the repair or 
restoration of a flood control work under subsection (a).

 AN ACT To authorize continued storage of water at Abiquiu Dam in New 
                                Mexico.

SECTION 1. WATER STORAGE.

  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Secretary of 
the Army, acting through the Chief of Engineers, is authorized 
to store [200,000 acre-feet of] Rio Grande system and San Juan-
Chama project water at Abiquiu Dam, New Mexico[, in lieu of the

Law 97-140 no longer require such storage]. The Secretary is 
authorized further to acquire lands adjacent to Abiquiu Dam on 
which the Secretary holds easements as of the date of enactment 
of this Act if such acquisition is necessary to assure proper 
recreational access at Abiquiu Dam. The Secretary is further 
directed to report to Congress as soon as possible with 
recommendations on additional easements that may be required to 
assure implementation of this Act.

                            ADDITIONAL VIEWS

    The following are explanations of intent on two provisions 
that I wrote:
Sec. 206. Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule, Florida
    This section includes direction to the Army Corps on 
efforts to manage water within Lake Okeechobee, Florida.
    Subsection (a)1 directs the Secretary to evaluate the 
implications of prohibiting the release of water from the Lake 
at two existing lock and dam structures, and separately, to 
seek to minimize unnecessary releases to coastal estuaries. 
Subsection (a)2 directs the Secretary to coordinate with 
ongoing efforts of Federal and state agencies responsible for 
monitoring, forecasting, and notification of cyanobacteria 
levels in Lake Okeechobee. In carrying out this section, the 
intent is that the Army Corps notify impacted water users when 
discharges may violate the Environmental Protection Agency's 
Recreational Water Quality Criteria and Swimming Advisories for 
Cyanotoxins, which sets recreational limits for the cyanotoxin 
microsystin at 8 micrograms per liter. Furthermore, it is the 
intent that this section encourages the Army Corps to work with 
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on algal 
bloom forecasting similar to the Lake Erie Harmful Algal Bloom 
Forecast.
    Subsection (c) notes that the requirement to evaluate the 
implications of prohibiting the release of water through the 
two lock and dam structures in subsection (a)(1) shall not be 
construed to authorize any new purpose for management of Lake 
Okeechobee or provide any new authority, beyond existing 
authority the Army Corps already has, for the Secretary to 
affect other authorized purposes. This provision is intended to 
be narrowly construed to impact only the evaluation required by 
Subsection (a)1 in which the Corps is required to evaluate the 
implications of prohibiting the release of water through two 
existing lock and dam structures. Subsection (c) does not apply 
to any other portions of the Lake Okeechobee System Operating 
Manual or Lake Okeechobee's operations.
Sec. 319. Central Everglades, Florida
    This section clarifies that the project for ecosystem 
restoration, Central and Southern Florida, Everglades 
Agricultural Area, authorized by section 1308 of the Water 
Resources Development Act of 2018 (132 Stat. 3819) does not 
require a new start. The section further states that the 
Secretary shall carry out the project as so combined, which is 
at the total operating cost of $4,362,091,000.

                                                        Brian Mast.

                            ADDITIONAL VIEWS

    I support this bill and applaud the Chairman and Ranking 
Member for their hard work in advancing this critical 
legislation to move our Nation's water infrastructure forward. 
One issue which became a point of contention in the drafting 
process was what to do, if anything, about Florida's most 
critical water infrastructure known as the Central & South 
Florida Water System ``C&SF System'' as well as the 
Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP). More 
specifically, the Lake Okeechobee component of that system. As 
a principal in these discussions and the coauthor of Section 
221, I provide these additional views to further explain this 
provision and offer history and insight into these issues.
    Foremost, I would like to state paragraph (c) makes clear 
that paragraph (a)(1) authorizes no new purpose for management 
of the lake, nor does it affect any exiting authorized purpose 
for management of the lake, including the Corps obligation to 
provide water supply for all authorized users. Stated more 
plainly, in carrying out paragraph (a)(1) the Corps may not 
manage the lake for an unauthorized purpose. Without inclusion 
of this paragraph and the agreement on its intent by all 
parties, this section would have not been included in the bill.
    Having served as an elected official from Florida for 39 
years, I have a deep understanding of the critical importance 
of the entire C&SF system to our state. For decades the Florida 
congressional delegation has worked on this critical issue 
together, alongside the state and the various entities that are 
impacted by the region's water infrastructure. We didn't always 
agree, but we have always worked in the open and with input 
from all to advance the goals of ecological restoration and to 
meet the needs of a growing region. Unfortunately, this year 
marked a departure from that approach with certain desires to 
advance the goals of a small component of the system at the 
expense of the rest of the region. Being an engineer, I 
particularly recognize how minor changes in one component of a 
system can have far reaching, and unintended consequences in 
another component of a system. This certainly holds true for 
the C&SF system and the management of Lake O.
    Under federal law, the C&SF System is managed by the U.S. 
Army Corps of Engineers for the explicit purposes of flood 
control, water supply for authorized users including Everglades 
National Park, recreation and navigation, and fish and 
wildlife. Its waters serve as the literal sustenance for which 
6-8 million people rely on for drinking, bathing, cooking and 
other purposes each and every day. These waters are the 
lifeblood of our most important ecological region--over 2 
million acres that make up the national treasure that is the 
Everglades/South Florida Bay. They are the most vital component 
of the region's agricultural industry--those farmers and their 
employees that sow, tend and harvest the fruits, vegetables and 
other crops that we all take for granted at our dinner tables. 
It is also the water source for the State's two tribal nations. 
One of the State's oldest and proudest indigenous peoples--the 
Miccosukee Tribe--who could not survive without them and the 
Seminole Tribe of Florida, whose compact with the State of 
Florida requires protection of their water supply.
    Without enough water in the lake and adequate flows to 
these users, taps run dry in homes and offices from Palm Beach 
to Homestead. Fields go fallow, farms go belly up and their 
employees are out of work. The Everglades becomes susceptible 
to damaging wildfires or could starve along with the animals 
and plant life it supports. The Miccosukee are left with little 
to no water in violation of a promise made long ago. Saltwater 
inundates our coastal wellfields and natural areas such as the 
Caloosahatchee River, harming that ecologically sensitive 
estuary.
    In recognition of these issues of critical importance this 
very committee, in WRDA 2000, made a significant commitment to 
restoration of the Everglades in authorizing the Comprehensive 
Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) which consisted of many 
regional projects and has been expanded upon in subsequent 
legislation. This grand vision was made possible by a provision 
included in that bill that stated that all existing users of 
water and the level of flood control in place at the time of 
enactment would not be negatively impacted by the restoration 
projects--for all of the aforementioned reasons of critical 
importance--those users whom for it is a life or death matter.
    In 2008, the Corps began repairing the Herbert Hoover dike 
around Lake Okeechobee at a cost of $1.8 billion dollars. In 
order to repair the dike, the Corps had to lower the lake 
levels temporarily, diminishing the total amount of available 
water in the lake which was concerning, but working together, 
nearly everyone recognized this was necessary and understood 
the importance of the repairs to be paramount to most other 
concerns.
    In WRDA 2018, this committee once again took strong action 
towards moving the CS&F and CERP projects forward by 
prioritizing the completion of the dike and directed the Corps 
to expedite the development of a new Lake schedule once the 
repairs were complete.
    The Corps expects these repairs to be completed by 2022 and 
a new lake regulation schedule to accompany it. The expectation 
of all the Floridians who were around and engaged in these 
issues in 2008, was that once the repairs are completed the 
Corps would operate the Lake to restore the water allowing this 
water to be conserved in the Lake for users and the environment 
alike. Once the dike is repaired, the Corps will have the 
capacity to safely hold more water in the Lake and restore the 
water supply and flood protection performance that existed 
before the dike had to be repaired while simultaneously 
improving environmental conditions in the Lake, Everglades, and 
estuaries.
    Over 50 Florida organizations as well as a bipartisan group 
of Members of Congress have expressed strong opposition to any 
efforts by the Corps to manage the lake at a lower level to 
attempt to control seasonal flows to the coastal estuaries to 
mitigate the impacts that Harmful Algal Blooms have on those 
regions--now or in the future. I share these concerns in the 
strongest terms possible.
    I too am concerned about Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and 
support work that can be done to mitigate the impact that they 
may have on my fellow Floridians. However, as made clear in the 
language contained in the bill and impacts outlined above, 
lowering targeted Lake O levels is not an acceptable means by 
which to achieve this end.
    Working together, we can all guarantee that the original 
compromises that allowed CERP to be included in WRDA 2000 can 
be upheld, and seek to address HABs, while ensuring the multi-
stakeholder, scientifically-driven approach is not undermined 
by only focusing on an issue that may subvert the purposes of 
CERP.
