                                 An Act


 
To direct the Secretary of Agriculture to convey to the city of Sisters, 
  Oregon, a certain parcel of land for use in connection with a sewage 
                           treatment facility.

    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) the city of Sisters, Oregon, faces a public health threat 
    from a major outbreak of infectious diseases due to the lack of a 
    sewer system;
        (2) the lack of a sewer system also threatens groundwater and 
    surface water resources in the area;
        (3) the city is surrounded by Forest Service land and has no 
    reasonable access to non-Federal parcels of land large enough, and 
    with the proper soil conditions, for the development of a sewage 
    treatment facility;
        (4) the Forest Service currently must operate, maintain, and 
    replace 11 separate septic systems to serve existing Forest Service 
    facilities in the city of Sisters; and
        (5) the Forest Service currently administers 77 acres of land 
    within the city limits that would increase in value as a result of 
    construction of a sewer system.

SEC. 2. CONVEYANCE.

    (a) In General.--As soon as practicable and upon completion of any 
documents or analysis required by any environmental law, but not later 
than 180 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary of 
Agriculture shall convey to the city of Sisters, Oregon (hereinafter 
referred to as the ``city'') an amount of land that is not more than is 
reasonably necessary for a sewage treatment facility and for the 
disposal of treated effluent consistent with subsection (c).
    (b) Land Description.--The amount of land conveyed under subsection 
(a) shall be 160 acres or 240 acres from within--
        (1) the SE quarter of section 09, township 15 south, range 10 
    west, W.M., Deschutes, Oregon, and the portion of the SW quarter of 
    section 09, township 15 south, range 10 west, W.M., Deschutes, 
    Oregon, that lies east of Three Creeks Lake Road, but not including 
    the westernmost 500 feet of that portion; and
        (2) the portion of the SW quarter of section 09, township 15 
    south, range 10 west, W.M., Deschutes County, Oregon, lying 
    easterly of Three Creeks Lake Road.
    (c) Condition.--
        (1) In general.--The conveyance under subsection (a) shall be 
    made on the condition that the city--
            (A) shall conduct a public process before the final 
        determination is made regarding land use for the disposition of 
        treated effluent;
            (B) except as provided by paragraph (2), shall be 
        responsible for system development charges, mainline 
        construction costs, and equivalent dwelling unit monthly 
        service fees as set forth in the agreement between the city and 
        the Forest Service in the letter of understanding dated October 
        14, 1999; and
            (C) shall pay the cost of preparation of any documents 
        required by any environmental law in connection with the 
        conveyance.
        (2) Adjustment in fees.--
            (A) Value higher than estimated.--If the land to be 
        conveyed pursuant to subsection (a) is appraised for a value 
        that is 10 percent or more higher than the value estimated for 
        such land in the agreement between the city and the Forest 
        Service in the letter of understanding dated October 14, 1999, 
        the city shall be responsible for additional charges, costs, 
        fees, or other compensation so that the total amount of 
        charges, costs, and fees for which the city is responsible 
        under paragraph (1)(B) plus the value of the amount of charges, 
        costs, fees, or other compensation due under this subparagraph 
        is equal to such appraised value. The Secretary and the city 
        shall agree upon the form of additional charges, costs, fees, 
        or other compensation due under this subparagraph.
            (B) Value lower than estimated.--If the land to be conveyed 
        pursuant to subsection (a) is appraised for a value that is 10 
        percent or more lower than the value estimated for such land in 
        the agreement between the city and the Forest Service in the 
        letter of understanding dated October 14, 1999, the amount of 
        equivalent dwelling unit monthly service fees for which the 
        city shall be responsible under paragraph (1)(B) shall be 
        reduced so that the total amount of charges, costs, and fees 
        for which the city is responsible under that paragraph is equal 
        to such appraised value.
    (d) Use of Land.--
        (1) In general.--The land conveyed under subsection (a) shall 
    be used by the city for a sewage treatment facility and for the 
    disposal of treated effluent.
        (2) Optional reverter.--If at any time the land conveyed under 
    subsection (a) ceases to be used for a purpose described in 
    paragraph (1), at the option of the United States, title to the 
    land shall revert to the United States.
    (e) Authority to Acquire Land in Substitution.--Subject to the 
availability of appropriations, the Secretary shall acquire land within 
Oregon, and within or in the vicinity of the Deschutes National Forest, 
of an acreage equivalent to that of the land conveyed under subsection 
(a). Any lands acquired shall be added to and administered as part of 
the Deschutes National Forest.

                               Speaker of the House of Representatives.

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