Editors: Harald Nystroem
Book Description:
The Bureau of Reclamation is responsible for the construction of most of the large irrigation and water resources infrastructure in the West. Reclamation manages water resource facilities in 17 western states with an original development cost of over $20.0 billion. Furthermore, Reclamation is is over 100 years old. This aging infrastructure requires increased maintenance and replacement efforts and expenditures. This book describes Reclamation's approach to managing aging infrastructure. There is also a discussion of four specific approaches to managing Reclamation's aging infrastructure through legislative action. Furthermore, the principal federal program to aid municipal wastewater treatment plant construction is authorized in the Clean Water Act (CWA). This book explores the funding for EPA wastewater assistance and some of the funded projects which are not authorized in the Clean Water Act nor the Safe Drinking Water Act. This book also examines the urgent actions needed to be taken for additional funding to resolve any deficiencies in dams. While dams have multiple benefits, they can also present a risk to public safety and economic infrastructure. This book consists of public documents which have been located, gathered, combined, reformatted, and enhanced with a subject index, selectively edited and bound to provide easy access.
