INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION The Water Resources Planning Act of 1965 and the Water 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 2019 is 2.875 percent. Discounting is to be used to convert future monetary values to present values. 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 U.S. Department of the Treasury calculated the specified average to be 2.9176 percent. This rate, rounded to the nearest one-eighth percent, is 2.875 percent, which is a change of less than the allowable onequarter of 1 percent. Therefore, the fiscal year 2019 rate is 2.875 percent. The rate of 2.875 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.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Reclamation is announcing the interest rate to 
be used by Federal agencies in the formulation and evaluation of plans 
for water and related land resources is 2.875 percent for fiscal year 
2019.

DATES: This discount rate is to be used for the period October 1, 2018, 
through and including September 30, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Water Resources Planning Act of 1965 and 
the Water 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 
2019 is 2.875 percent. Discounting is to be used to convert future 
monetary values to present values.
    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 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 
U.S. Department of the Treasury calculated the specified average to be 
2.9176 percent. This rate, rounded to the nearest one-eighth percent, 
is 2.875 percent, which is a change of less than the allowable one-
quarter of 1 percent. Therefore, the fiscal year 2019 rate is 2.875 
percent.
    The rate of 2.875 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.
