 To direct the Secretary of the Interior, the Bureau of Reclamation, to 
 conduct a feasibility study on the Jicarilla Apache Reservation in the 
              State of New Mexico, and for other purposes.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds that--
        (1) there are major deficiencies with regard to adequate and 
    sufficient water supplies available to residents of the Jicarilla 
    Apache Reservation in the State of New Mexico;
        (2) the existing municipal water system that serves the 
    Jicarilla Apache Reservation is under the ownership and control of 
    the Bureau of Indian Affairs and is outdated, dilapidated, and 
    cannot adequately and safely serve the existing and future growth 
    needs of the Jicarilla Apache Tribe;
        (3) the federally owned municipal water system on the Jicarilla 
    Apache Reservation has been unable to meet the minimum Federal 
    water requirements necessary for discharging wastewater into a 
    public watercourse and has been operating without a Federal 
    discharge permit;
        (4) the federally owned municipal water system that serves the 
    Jicarilla Apache Reservation has been cited by the United States 
    Environmental Protection Agency for violations of Federal safe 
    drinking water standards and poses a threat to public health and 
    safety both on and off the Jicarilla Apache Reservation;
        (5) the lack of reliable supplies of potable water impedes 
    economic development and has detrimental effects on the quality of 
    life and economic self-sufficiency of the Jicarilla Apache Tribe;
        (6) due to the severe health threats and impediments to 
    economic development, the Jicarilla Apache Tribe has authorized and 
    expended $4,500,000 of tribal funds for the repair and replacement 
    of the municipal water system on the Jicarilla Apache Reservation; 
    and
        (7) the United States has a trust responsibility to ensure that 
    adequate and safe water supplies are available to meet the 
    economic, environmental, water supply, and public health needs of 
    the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation.

SEC. 2. AUTHORIZATION.

    (a) Authorization.--Pursuant to reclamation laws, the Secretary of 
the Interior, through the Bureau of Reclamation and in consultation and 
cooperation with the Jicarilla Apache Tribe, shall conduct a 
feasibility study to determine the most feasible method of developing a 
safe and adequate municipal, rural, and industrial water supply for the 
residents of the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation in the State of 
New Mexico.
    (b) Report.--Not later than 1 year after funds are appropriated to 
carry out this Act, the Secretary of the Interior shall transmit to 
Congress a report containing the results of the feasibility study 
required by subsection (a).

SEC. 3. AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS.

    There are authorized to be appropriated $200,000 to carry out this 
Act.

                               Speaker of the House of Representatives.

                            Vice President of the United States and    
                                               President of the Senate.
