  1. Below Hoover Dam723 mg/L The Hoover Station reflects damages associated with the metropolitan areas of Las Vegas and southern Nevada

  2. Below Parker Dam747 mg/L The Parker Station reflects damages associated with the metropolitan regions of southern California and central Arizona

  3. At Imperial Dam879 mg/L The Imperial Station reflects damages associated with agricultural areas of Imperial and Coachella in California and Yuma Arizona

  4. 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)

  5. 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%

  6. Title II Salinity Control ProgramAdministered by Reclamation • Grand Valley • Crystal Geyser (deauthorized 1984) • Paradox Valley • Las Vegas Wash

  7. Grand Valley Unit

  8. Paradox Valley Unit Brine Disposal

  9. Paradox Valley Unit Interception/Injection

  10. Control Salinity on Public Lands The BLM Program Point source control (well-plugging) Nonpoint source control (rangeland management) Resources Management Plans Unified watershed assessment characterization

  11. Title II Salinity Control Program • 1984 Amendment- • Authorized 2 units, de-authorized 1 • Authorized USDA’s on-farm salinity control program • Cost share of 30%

  12. Title II Salinity Control ProgramAdministered by Reclamation • Lower Gunnison (Winter Water Replacement) • McElmo Creek (Dolores Project)

  13. The USDA Program 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

  14. 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

  15. Funding for Reclamation’s Basinwide and NRCS’s EQIP Programs Appropriations 70% Up-front Cost Sharing 30% 85% Lower Colorado River Basin Development Fund 15% Upper Colorado River Basin Fund Title II Salinity Control Program

  16. 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

  17. Basinwide Program Projects • Big Sandy (4) • Manila (1) • Uinta Basin (23) • Price-San Rafael (17) • Paria (1)

  18. Basinwide Program Projects continued • Grand Valley (2) • Lower Gunnison (12) • McElmo Creek (1) • San Juan (2)

  20. Grand View Canal, Crawford CO

  21. Red Cap ARRA Project, Duchesne UT

  22. Uinta Basin, UT

  23. 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.

  24. 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

  25. Title II Salinity Control Program Habitat Replacement Uinta Basin, UT

  26. Federal Programs • Bureau of Reclamation • Lead Agency • U.S.D.A. • Natural Resources Conservation Service • Bureau of Land Management • Public Lands • Support Agencies • Fish & Wildlife Service • Environmental Protection Agency • U.S. Geologic Service
