The Annual Report specifically recommends funding levels for the Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Land Management, and U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Council also independently determines what Federal actions are needed to be consistent with the Plan of Implementation contained in the review of the Water Quality Standards in compliance with the Clean Water Act. The Council also reviews the cost sharing allocations between the Basin States and recommends any needed adjustments. These recommendations are captured in the Annual Report. d6b90ae9-abf6-4307-97e8-6096f4ff308b Recommandations Not Available 4194f929-86cb-4b35-9b8e-1e22a3eb16dd Make, Accept, Implement 8310c9a5-8a3a-49b1-9bbd-c1c4cc6cb54f 4935f339-b70c-4019-9b8a-bd969b4263fb Recommendations Made Number Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Advisory Council Department of the Interior Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 Recommendations are made to the Federal agencies with direct responsibility for salinity control in the Colorado River: Reclamation, BLM, and NRCS; and to the supporting Federal agencies: FWS, EPA, USGS 25 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 e86bf931-0327-4a3f-9580-36ecdaa63e00 Recommendations Fully Accepted Percentage Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Advisory Council Department of the Interior For a variety of its own reasons not applicable to the Committee, the agency may implement all/most of the recommendations, but few times recommendations are not implemented. n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The Advisory Council has been in existence since the mid 1970s. The total number of separate and distinct and fully implemented recommendations are unknown, but the Federal agencies are usually responsive to recommendations by the Council. 75 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 7742135b-4277-44b9-a6c1-3b224450f100 Recommendations Partially Accepted Percentage Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Advisory Council Department of the Interior There are sometimes a few proposals which were not funded in their entirety, those few being scaled back from their original level of requested funding (allowable under the program). n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 Some recommendations will take a long time before fully implemented. The Council has been recommending higher levels of funding for years. The levels recommended will probably not happen in the present budget climate. 25 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2013-07-09 http://explore.data.gov/resource/datasets/c5i3-bb9j Gannon (J.)
