H.R. 3929 would authorize the Secretary of the Interior to assist the Municipal Water District of Orange County with research and development activities, environmental and feasibility studies, and preliminary engineering for a desalination plant in Dana Point, California. The act would authorize the appropriation of funds for these activities. The authority would terminate within 10 years, and the federal share of the project's studies and initial engineering costs could not exceed 25 percent. In addition, the act would authorize the appropriation of funds for a feasibility study to assess the cost-effectiveness and environmental impact of different techniques for providing potable water to the state of Rhode Island.
