Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Investments

Map of Reclamation regions displaying projectsWith the signing of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law by President Biden, Reclamation takes on a new opportunity to invest in our infrastructure and benefit the American public for the next generation.

This key investment will improve federal stewardship of our critical infrastructure and significantly increase Reclamation’s efforts to support our partners, stakeholders, Tribal nations, and communities in the 17 Western states. Included in this Act is an $8.3 billion investment in Reclamation water infrastructure and $2.5 billion for authorized water rights settlement projects. Implementing this law and delivering meaningful results is a top priority for Reclamation.

Reclamation serves as the water and power infrastructure for the American West. We are grateful for the support and this once-in-a-generation opportunity to improve our nation’s water infrastructure and invest in America’s future, and look forward to working with our partners across the west in its implementation.

Reclamation is proactively engaging with tribes and stakeholders to share information regarding the implementation of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
