SECTION 12884-12884.2



12884.  The department is authorized to make state grants to public
agencies from moneys available for such purpose. Grants in excess of
four hundred thousand dollars ($400,000) for any one project for the
purposes authorized by subdivisions (a) and (b) of Section 12884.2
may be made by the department only upon specific approval of the
Legislature, by an act enacted after the receipt of copies of the
project report filed pursuant to Section 12882.4 and upon such
additional terms and conditions as the Legislature may prescribe.



12884.2.  Grants in furtherance of a project that involves the
development of a new water supply or a project that involves the
repair, alteration, or replacement of dam and reservoir facilities
which are subject to storage restrictions for dam safety purposes
pursuant to Part 1 (commencing with Section 6000) of Division 3 may
be made for the following purposes:
   (a) For the part of the construction cost of the proposed project
properly allocated to the enhancement of fish and wildlife, except,
that a grant for that part shall not exceed 50 percent of the
construction cost. In allocating the costs of repair, alteration, or
replacement of a dam to fish and wildlife enhancement, the department
may consider existing fish and wildlife resources to the extent that
they would be reduced or eliminated by a storage restriction for dam
safety purposes pursuant to Part 1 (commencing with Section 6000) of
Division 3.
   (b) For the part of the construction cost of any dam and reservoir
of the proposed project properly allocated to recreational functions
of statewide interest, except that a grant for that part shall not
exceed 50 percent of the construction cost, and provided further,
that the total grant under subdivisions (a) and (b) for any one
project shall not exceed 75 percent of the construction cost of the
project. In allocating the costs of repair, alteration, or
replacement of a dam, to recreational functions of statewide
interest, the department may consider existing recreation, to the
extent that it would be reduced or eliminated by a storage
restriction for dam safety purposes pursuant to Part 1 (commencing
with Section 6000) of Division 3. Those construction costs may
include expenditures for lands located above the high waterline of
reservoirs which are necessary or desirable for public recreation in
connection with the reservoir.
   (c) For the construction of initial water supply and sanitary
facilities which are needed for public recreational use of each
proposed dam and reservoir of the proposed project which will develop
a new water supply. A grant for the purpose specified in this
subdivision shall not be subject to the limitation contained in
Section 12884 on grants for the purposes specified in subdivisions
(a) and (b) and shall not be included in computing the total amount
which may be granted to a public agency in connection with a project
for those purposes. A grant for the purpose specified in this
subdivision shall not exceed one-fourth of the total amount granted
to a public agency in connection with a project for the purposes
specified in subdivision (a) or (b), or both.
