The requirements in this draft directive and standards provide direction for conducting feasibility level water resource planning studies that are consistent with the Economic and Environmental Principles and Guidelines for Water and Related Resources Implementation Studies, commonly referred to as P&G's.
Changes to the directive and standard include:
- An extended definition of "feasibility level" to establish general expectations for data collection, technical and scientific analysis, design and cost-estimating.
- An independent review facilitated by Reclamation's Office of Policy and Administration. This policy review process is modeled on existing procedures for DEC reviews and Title XVI feasibility study reviews.
- Criteria for considering and analyzing climate change impacts as directed by Secretarial Order 3289.
The draft directive and standard is available for review at: http://www.usbr.gov/recman/drafts/Public_Review_Draft_CMP_09-02_(09-16-11)_FINAL.pdf.
Comments or questions may be directed to Chris Perry at email@example.com. Comments must be received by Reclamation by 5 PM on October 21, 2011.
