These project purposes are designated “Other” in this table. Project cost shown is reported cost for completed projects and estimated cost for all other projects. a SFWMD is expediting the design and construction of this project with its own funds in advance of congressional authori- b zation, which may result in earlier project completion. The estimated cost of this aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) project is included in the cost estimate for the project’s c initial part or phase. Specifically, the estimated cost of the C-43 Basin ASR is included in the cost estimate for the C-43 Basin Storage Reservoir; the estimated cost of the Hillsboro ASR is included in the cost estimate for the Site 1 Impound- ment; and the estimated cost of the Palm Beach County Agriculture Reserve ASR is included in the cost estimate for the Palm Beach County Agriculture Reserve Reservoir. We did not receive cost information for this project. d A project implementation report was submitted to the U.S. Congress in 2005 for this project, but it has not yet received e authorization. The South Florida Water Management District is expediting a portion of this project with its own funds in advance of f congressional authorization. It is constructing a water storage reservoir that it expects to finish by 2008. This project is currently being reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget before its project implementation g report is submitted to the Congress for authorization. This project is currently being reviewed by the assistant secretary of the U.S. Army before its project implementation h report is submitted to the Congress for authorization. Phase 1 of this project has been completed; phase 2 is on hold pending additional funding. i This date encompasses construction completion and several years of post-construction monitoring. j SOURCE: Excerpted from GAO (2007).
