the plan of implementation
The Plan of Implementation
  • Offset the effects of human-caused activities in the Upper Basin
  • Maintain the numeric criteria thru 2030
    • Target objective – control 1.8 M tons/year
    • Reduce the economic damages
  • Enactment of the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Act (Public Law 93-320)
salinity control act
Salinity Control Act
  • 1974 – PL 93-320 enacted
    • Title I – Addresses US commitment to Mexico – Yuma Desalting Plant
    • Title II – Measures Upstream of Imperial Dam
      • Authorized 4 units
      • Cost share of 25%

Natural Resources Conservation Service

  • Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP)
    • Technical Assistance to improve irrigation efficiency
    • Financial assistance –
      • Provides financial incentives of 75 to 90% of the cost of the irrigation improvements
        • Remaining costs paid by the producers

Title II Salinity Control Program
  • 1995 Amendment
    • Created Reclamation’s Basinwide Salinity Control Program
      • Cost share of 30%
  • 1996 Amendment
    • Authorized Up-front Cost Sharing

Reclamation’s BasinwideSalinity Control Program
  • Reclamation solicits new projects based on a competitive process open to the public
    • Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA)
    • Applications ranked on cost effectiveness ($/ton) and risk factors
    • Highest ranking applicationsreceive grants for construction of salinity control measures
  • Most projects have been improving irrigation delivery systems
basinwide program projects
Basinwide Program Projects
  • Big Sandy (4)
  • Manila (1)
  • Uinta Basin (23)
  • Price-San Rafael (17)
  • Paria (1)

title ii salinity control program3
Title II Salinity Control Program
  • 2008 Amendment
    • Created the Basin States Program
  • Basin States Program (BSP)
    • Reclamation administers the BSP in consultation with the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Advisory Council
    • Amounts from the Basin Funds used for up-front cost sharing are now administered through the BSP.

Basin States Program (BSP)

Reclamation administers the BSP with assistance from state agriculture agencies (SAG) and NRCS thru agreements

  • Projects will be selected thru a competitive process, i.e. Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) or NRCS batching process.
  • Projects that are too small for Basinwide Program and not eligible for NRCS’s EQIP.
  • Ranked on cost effectiveness ($/ton) and other factors.
  • Selected projects will be awarded agreements with the SAG or with Reclamation for construction of salinity control measures
