preliminary (i.e., draft) determination is invited at this time.

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

Project water conservation best management practices 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. Best Management Practices (BMPs) for Agricultural Contractors.
4. BMPs for Urban Contractors.

area office. Our practice is to make comments, including
