Environmental Water Account
The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is the National Environmental Policy Act Federal lead agency, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) and National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) are the Federal Cooperating Agencies.

Together, these five agencies have made the Draft Supplemental EIS/EIR available for public review and comment.
