S. 693, a bill to amend the Reclamation Wastewater and Groundwater Study and Facilities Act to authorize the Secretary of the Interior to participate in the City of Hermiston, Oregon, water recycling and reuse project, and for other purposes

Cost Estimate
July 2, 2013

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on May 16, 2013

S. 693 would authorize the Bureau of Reclamation to participate in developing a project to reclaim and reuse groundwater in Hermiston, Oregon. The bill also would deauthorize the Willow Lake Natural Treatment System Project in Oregon. Assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO estimates that implementing S. 693 would cost $7 million over the 2014-2018 period.

Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.

S. 693 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
