SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Section 1001(b)(2) of the Water Resources Development Act of 1986, Public Law 99-662, 100 Stat. 4082-4273, as amended, provides for the automatic deauthorization of water resource projects and separable elements of projects that are eligible for deauthorization under that section.

Section 1001(b)(2), 33 U.S.C. 579a(b)(2), requires the Secretary of the Army to annually submit to the Congress a list of unconstructed water resources projects and separable elements of projects for which no funds have been obligated for planning, design or construction during the preceding five full fiscal years. If no funds are obligated to a listed project by end of the fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the project was listed, then the project is automatically deauthorized. Notwithstanding these provisions, projects may be specifically deauthorized or reauthorized by law. (Note: The provision of § 1001(b)(2) prior to the 2007 amendments apply to this action.)

In accordance with section 1001(b)(2), in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) submitted a list informing Congress of 11 projects and separable elements that would be subject to automatic deauthorization after September 30, 2011, and in FY 2011 submitted a list of 20 projects and separable elements that would be subject to automatic deauthorization after September 30, 2012, and in FY 2012 submitted a list of 2 projects and separable elements that would be subject to automatic deauthorization after September 30, 2013. Of the 33 projects and separable elements included in these three lists, all 33 were in fact automatically deauthorized, in accordance with section 1001(b)(2). The following three tables indicate the disposition of each of the 33 listed projects.
