Reclamation established its WCFSP in 1996. The purpose of the WCFSP is to fulfill its water conservation-related obligation as outlined in Section 210 of the Reclamation Reform Act (RRA) of 1982 directing the Secretary to encourage and implement water conservation measures on Federal Reclamation projects. Directives and Standards (WTR 01-02) were developed for the program which outlined Reclamation's procedures for administering the WCFSP pursuant to the RRA and other existing authorities, including the provision of technical and financial assistance to Federal and non-Federal entities and the administration of water conservation plans.
The primary purposes or four major components of the WCFSP are to:
A. Assist in developing effective water management and conservation plans;
B. Encourage and promote implementation of water efficiency measures;
C. Demonstrate conservation technologies; and
D. Promote and support water education and training.
Reclamation recognizes that no single entity, acting independently can meet the challenge of improving the efficiency of water use and management throughout the western states. Consequently, a key to meeting this challenge will be the partnerships formed between Reclamation and water users, other Federal and State agencies, educational and research institutions, and other interested parties.
