Cover of the Guidelines volumeThis document provides information describing the Bureau of Reclamation's water reclamation and reuse program as authorized by the Reclamation Wastewater and Groundwater Study and Facilities Act of 1992 (Title XVI of Public Law [P.L.] 102-575, as amended). It also provides information on how to comply with statutory requirements of Title XVI and Reclamation policy applicable during the preconstruction phase of project development.

This report addresses common questions that project sponsors and others may have in several areas: the Title XVI program, funding, the feasibility study and report, environmental requirements, Reclamation priorities and cost sharing. The guidelines address applicable contents of a complete feasibility study, economic analysis, National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and other environmental requirements, cost-sharing procedures, determining financial capability, and demonstration projects.
