Specifically, the Corps proposes to define key terms under both statutes and to respond to issues that have arisen in exercising these authorities, in order to take into account court decisions, legislative provisions, and other developments. The Corps intends through this rulemaking to explain and improve its interpretations and practices under these statutes, and seeks comment from all interested stakeholders on those interpretations and practices. The proposed rule is intended to enhance the Corps' ability to cooperate with State and local interests in the development of water supplies in connection with the operation of its reservoirs for federal purposes as authorized by Congress, to facilitate water supply uses of Corps reservoirs by others as contemplated under applicable law, and to avoid interfering with lawful uses of water by any entity when the Corps exercises its discretionary authority under either Section 6 or the WSA. The proposed rule would apply only to reservoir projects operated by the Corps, not to projects operated by other federal or non-federal entities, and it would not impose requirements on any other entity, alter existing contractual arrangements at Corps reservoirs, or require operational changes at any Corps reservoir. The Corps intends by this rulemaking proposal to initiate a positive dialogue with stakeholders on these important issues, and to promote program certainty and efficiency by ultimately establishing a uniform understanding of Section 6 and the WSA, and the range of activity authorized thereunder.
