Irrigation Operation and Maintenance
The Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), is proposing to revise the regulations governing irrigation projects under its jurisdiction. The purpose of the revisions is to provide consistent administration; establish the process for updating practices, policies, and procedures for the administration, operation, maintenance, and rehabilitation of irrigation projects; and provide uniform accounting and recordkeeping procedures. These regulations have also been rewritten in plain English as mandated by Executive Order 12866. They also address several issues that prior regulations did not cover.
