SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Alternative Water Sources Act of

local government agencies, private utilities, and nonprofit entities 
for alternative water source projects to meet critical water supply 
needs.
    ``(b) Eligible Entity.--The Administrator may make grants under 
this section to an entity only if the entity has authority under State

agricultural uses in an area of the State that is experiencing critical 
water supply needs.
    ``(c) Selection of Projects.--
            ``(1) Limitation.--A project that has received funds under 
        the reclamation and reuse program conducted under the

        (43 U.S.C. 390h et seq.) shall not be eligible for grant 
        assistance under this section.
            ``(2) Additional consideration.--In making grants under 
        this section, the Administrator shall consider whether the 
        project is located within the boundaries of a State or area 
        referred to in section 1 of the Reclamation Act of June 17, 
        1902 (32 Stat. 385), and within the geographic scope of the

        alternative water source project under this section, the total

        Transportation and Infrastructure of the House of 
        Representatives or the Committee on Environment and Public 
        Works of the Senate.
            ``(2) Requirements for securing consideration.--For 
        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 
        the non-Federal sponsor shall provide to the committee 
        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 
testing of alternative water source projects designed to meet critical 
water supply needs. Such amounts may not be used for planning, 
feasibility studies or for operation, maintenance, replacement, repair, 
or rehabilitation.
    ``(f) Cost Sharing.--The Federal share of the eligible costs of an 
alternative water source project carried out using assistance made 
available under this section shall not exceed 50 percent.
    ``(g) Reports.--
            ``(1) Reports to administrator.--Each recipient of a grant 
        under this section shall submit to the Administrator, not later 
        than 18 months after the date of receipt of the grant and 
        biennially thereafter until completion of the alternative water 
        source project funded by the grant, a report on eligible 
        activities carried out by the grant recipient using amounts 
        from the grant.
            ``(2) Report to congress.--On or before September 30, 2005, 
        the Administrator shall transmit to Congress a report on the 
        progress made toward meeting the critical water supply needs of 
        the grant recipients under this section.
    ``(h) Definitions.--In this section, the following definitions 
apply:
            ``(1) Alternative water source project.--The term 
        `alternative water source project' means a project designed to 
        provide municipal, industrial, and agricultural water supplies 
        in an environmentally sustainable manner by conserving, 
        managing, reclaiming, or reusing water or wastewater or by 
        treating wastewater.
            ``(2) Critical water supply needs.--The term `critical 
        water supply needs' means existing or reasonably anticipated 
        future water supply needs that cannot be met by existing water 
        supplies, as identified in a comprehensive statewide or 
        regional water supply plan or assessment projected over a 
        planning period of at least 20 years.
    ``(i) Authorization of Appropriations.--There is authorized to be 
appropriated to carry out this section $75,000,000 for each of fiscal
