This project is being undertaken under the authority for the Puerto Rico Coastal Study and the San Juan Metro Area, Puerto Rico Study is Section 204 of the River and Harbor Act of 1970, Public Law 91–611, which authorizes the Secretary of the Army, acting though the Chief of Engineers, to prepare plans for the development, utilization and conservation of water and related land resources of drainage basins and coastal areas in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
