        1902 (32 Stat. 385), and within the geographic scope of the

        purposes of securing consideration of approval under paragraph 
        (1), the Administrator shall provide to a committee referred to 
        in paragraph (1) such information as the committee requests and

        information on the costs and relative needs for the alternative 
        water source project.
    ``(e) Uses of Grants.--Amounts from grants received under this 
section may be used for engineering, design, construction, and final
