SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are inviting the public to comment on our

3405(e) of the CVPIA (Title 34 Public Law 102-575) requires the 
Secretary of the Interior to establish and administer an office on 
Central Valley Project water conservation best management practices 
(BMPs) that shall ``* * * develop criteria for evaluating the adequacy 
of all water conservation plans developed by project contractors, 
including those plans required by Section 210 of the Reclamation Reform 
Act of 1982.'' Also, according to Section 3405(e)(1), these Criteria 
must be developed ``* * * with the purpose of promoting the highest 
level of water use efficiency reasonably achievable by project 
contractors using best available cost-effective technology and best 
management practices.'' These Criteria state that all parties 
(Contractors) that contract with Reclamation for water supplies 
(municipal and industrial contracts over 2,000 acre-feet and 
agricultural contracts over 2,000 irrigable acres) must prepare Plans 
that contain the following information:

1. Description of the District
2. Inventory of Water Resources
3. BMPs for Agricultural Contractors

    Reclamation will evaluate Plans based on these Criteria. A copy of 
these Plans will be available for review at Reclamation's Mid-Pacific 
(MP) Regional Office located in Sacramento, California, and the local 
area office.
    Our practice is to make comments, including names and home 
addresses of respondents, available for public review. Individual 
respondents may request that Reclamation withhold their home address 
from public disclosure, and we will honor such request to the extent 
allowable by law. There also may be circumstances in which Reclamation 
would elect to withhold a respondent's identity from public disclosure, 
as allowable by law. If you wish us to withhold your name and/or 
address, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your 
comments. We will make all submissions from organizations, businesses,
