Water Conservation Field Services Program - Southern California Area Office: Water Conservation Field Services Program Overview The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), Southern California Area Office (SCAO), is requesting proposals to fund projects for activities in support of its Water Conservation Field Services Program (WCFSP) within the Southern California Area. The SCAO’s service area includes all of southern California south of the Tehachapi Mountains, east of the Sierras except for the Imperial, Coachella, and Colorado River Valleys. An area map of the SCAO can be viewed at http://www.usbr.gov/lc/images/maps/scao_boundaries.jpg. The mission of the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is to manage, develop, and protect water and related resources in an environmentally and economically sound manner in the interest of the American public. Reclamation has a major responsibility, in partnership with water users, states, Indian Tribes and other interested parties, to help improve water resource management and water use efficiency in the western United States. More efficient water use is a key component of Reclamation's water resource management strategy. Reclamation established the WCFSP in 1996 with the purpose to fulfill its water conservation-related obligation as outlined in Section 210 of the Reclamation Reform Act (RRA) of 1982. The RRA directs the Secretary to encourage and implement water conservation measures on Federal Reclamation projects. Directives and Standards (WTR 01-02) were developed for the program which outlined Reclamation's procedures for administering the WCFSP pursuant to the RRA and other existing authorities, including the provision of technical and financial assistance to Federal and non-Federal entities and the administration of water conservation plans. The primary purposes or four major components of the WCFSP are to: A. Assist in developing effective water management and conservation plans; B. Encourage and promote implementation of water efficiency measures; C. Demonstrate conservation technologies; and D. Promote and support water education and training. Please refer to funding opportunity announcement for additional information on these components. Reclamation recognizes that no single entity, acting independently, can meet the challenge of improving the efficiency of water use and management throughout the western states. Consequently, a key to meeting this challenge will be partnerships formed between Reclamation and water users, other Federal and state agencies, educational and research institutions, and other interested parties. Objective of Funding Opportunity Announcement The objective of this FOA is to invite irrigation and water districts, Indian Tribes, states, local governments, water providers, and other entities that have a tie to Reclamation projects to leverage their money and resources by cost sharing with Reclamation on activities/projects that make more efficient use of existing water supplies through water conservation and efficiency in the SCAO. Activities/Projects will be selected through a competitive process using the selection criteria listed in funding opportunity announcement.
