|Public Law 86-204||430|
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Secretary of the Interior shall determine the portion of the cost of constructing the water supply works of the Yakima Federal reclamation project which is properly assignable to the furnishing of water, as provided by the Acts of August 1, 1914 (38 Stat. 582, 604), and July 1, 1940 (54 Stat. 707), to the Wapato Indian irrigation project. The difference between the amounts previously authorized by such 1914 and 1940 statutes to be appropriated and credited to the reclamation fund and the amount of the cost assigned to the Wapato Indian irrigation project pursuant to this Act is hereby authorized to be appropriated out of any funds in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, and to be credited to the reclamation fund. Such difference shall be made available in amounts not to exceed $20,000 annually. If the amount not assigned to the Wapato Indian irrigation project pursuant to this Act is less than the sum of the obligations heretofore undertaken with respect to water supply construction costs by the water users' organizations of the Yakima project, including the obligation of the bureau of Indian Affairs with respect to two hundred and fifty thousand acre-feet of water for the "B" lands of the Wapato Indian irrigation project, the
Secretary shall make such reduction in the obligation of those organizations as he finds to be proper to carry out the provisions of their contracts relating to reductions to conform the obligation to the Secretary's final determination of the cost of constructing said facilities.
Approved, August 25, 1959.
