    (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

                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

                        by the Central Basin Municipal Water District; 
                        and

activities described in this section, the Secretary shall integrate 
such activities with ongoing Federal and State projects and activities.
