SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is responsible for 
approximately 6.5 million acres of land which directly support 
Reclamation's Federal water projects in the 17 western states. 
Individuals or entities wanting to use Reclamation's lands, facilities, 
or waterbodies must submit an application to gain permission for such 
uses. Examples of such uses are:

--Agricultural uses such as grazing and farming;
--commercial or organized recreation and sporting activities;
--other commercial activities such as ``guiding and outfitting'' and 
``filming and photography;'' and
--resource exploration and extraction, including sand and gravel 
removal and timber harvesting.

    Reclamation reviews applications to determine whether granting 
individual use authorizations is compatible with Reclamation's present 
or future uses of the lands, facilities, or waterbodies. When we find a 
proposed use compatible, we advise the applicant of the estimated 
administrative costs and estimated application processing time. In 
addition to the administrative costs, we require the applicant to pay a 
use fee based on a valuation or by competitive bidding. If the 
application is for construction of a bridge, building, or other 
significant construction project, Reclamation may require that all 
plans and specifications be signed and sealed by a licensed 
professional engineer.
