Notice is hereby given that the interest rate to be used by Federal agencies in the formulation and evaluation of plans for water and related land resources is 4.375 percent for fiscal year 2010. This rate has been computed in accordance with Section 80(a), Public Law 93–251 (88 Stat. 34) and 18 CFR 704.39, which: (1) Specify that the rate will be based upon the average yield during the preceding fiscal year on interest-bearing marketable securities of the United States which, at the time the computation is made, have terms of 15 years or more remaining to maturity (average yield is rounded to nearest oneeighth percent); and (2) provide that the rate will not be raised or lowered more than one-quarter of 1 percent for any year. The Treasury Department calculated the specified average to be 3.9910 percent. This average value is then rounded to the nearest one-eighth of a point, resulting in 4.0 percent. This exceeds the permissible one-quarter of 1 percent change from fiscal year 2009 to 2010. Therefore, the change is limited to a one-quarter percent decrease. The rate of 4.375 percent will be used by all Federal agencies in the formulation and evaluation of water and related land resources plans for the purpose of discounting future benefits and computing costs or otherwise converting benefits and costs to a common-time basis.

Resources Development Act of 1974 require an annual determination of a 
discount rate for Federal water resources planning. The discount rate 
for Federal water resources planning for fiscal year 2010 is 4.375 
percent. Discounting is to be used to convert future monetary values to 
present values.

DATES: This discount rate is to be used for the period October 1, 2009

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brooke Miller-Levy, Water and

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the interest 
rate to be used by Federal agencies in the formulation and evaluation 
of plans for water and related land resources is 4.375 percent for 
fiscal year 2010.
    This rate has been computed in accordance with Section 80(a), 
Public Law 93-251 (88 Stat. 34) and 18 CFR 704.39, which: (1) Specify 
that the rate will be based upon the average yield during the preceding 
fiscal year on interest-bearing marketable securities of the United

years or more remaining to maturity (average yield is rounded to 
nearest one-eighth percent); and (2) provide that the rate will not be 
raised or lowered more than one-quarter of 1 percent for any year. The 
Treasury Department calculated the specified average to be 3.9910 
percent. This average value is then rounded to the nearest one-eighth 
of a point, resulting in 4.0 percent. This exceeds the permissible one-
quarter of 1 percent change from fiscal year 2009 to 2010. Therefore, 
the change is limited to a one-quarter percent decrease.

the formulation and evaluation of water and related land resources 
plans for the purpose of discounting future benefits and computing
