SEC. 2. SAN GABRIEL BASIN RESTORATION.

    (a) San Gabriel Basin Restoration.--
            (1) Establishment of fund.--There shall be established 
        within the Treasury of the United States an interest bearing 
        account to be known as the San Gabriel Basin Restoration Fund 
        (in this section referred to as the ``Restoration Fund'').
            (2) Administration of fund.--The Restoration Fund shall be 
        administered by the Secretary of the Army, acting through the 
        Chief of Engineers (in this Act referred to as the 
        ``Secretary''). The Secretary shall administer the Fund in 
        cooperation with the San Gabriel Basin Water Quality Authority, 
        or its successor agency.
            (3) Purposes of fund.--
                    (A) In general.--Subject to subparagraph (B), the 
                amounts in the Restoration Fund, including interest 
                accrued, shall be utilized by the Secretary--
                            (i) to design and construct water quality 
                        projects to be administered by the San Gabriel 
                        Basin Water Quality Authority and the Central 
                        Basin Water Quality Project to be administered 
                        by the Central Basin Municipal Water District; 
                        and
                            (ii) to operate and maintain any project 
                        constructed under this section for such period 
                        as the Secretary determines, but not to exceed 
                        10 years, following the initial date of 
                        operation of the project.

provided to the Secretary by the non-Federal interests. The San Gabriel 
Basin Water Quality Authority shall be responsible for providing the

of the San Gabriel and Central groundwater basins. In carrying out the 
activities described in this section, the Secretary shall integrate 
such activities with ongoing Federal and State projects and activities. 
None of the funds made available for such activities pursuant to this

established for any previously authorized Federal projects or 
activities.
    (d) Authorization of Appropriations.--
            (1) In general.--There is authorized to be appropriated to 
        the Restoration Fund established under subsection (a)
