Rural Water Projects: Federal Assistance Criteria and Potential Benefits of the Proposed Lewis and Clark Project: T-RCED-99-252

July 1999
GAO Reports;7/29/1999, p1
Government Documents
GAO has issued two reports during the last year on rural water projects. One report looked at the characteristics of several proposed rural water projects and compared them with the criteria of several existing programs for funding assistance. (See GAO/RCED-98-204R, May 1998.) One of the projects covered in that report was the proposed Lewis and Clark project in South Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota. The other report focused on the benefits that could be expected from such a project. (See GAO/RCED-99-115, May 1999.) This testimony, which draws on GAO's earlier work, covers (1) the federal assistance criteria for rural water projects and (2) the potential benefits of rural water projects, such as Lewis and Clark.
