NON-FEDERAL COSTS: The investment required of local interests in construction of the total project is as follows:

Lands and damages

Relocations

Contribution (Cash)

Review of plans and specifications

Total

$ 77,143,000
24,348,000
110,000,000
420,000
$211,911,000

Local interests are required to operate and maintain all
project works upon completion except main control structures
of Conservation Areas 1, 2, and 3, and features directly con-
trolling and/or protecting Lake Okeechobee. Annual cost to
local interests for operation and maintenance of the total
project is estimated at $6,560,000. Estimate of annual mainte-
nance of secondary works provided by local interests is
$763,000.

STATUS OF LOCAL COOPERATION: Assurances of local cooperation have been accepted for all works authorized under the Central
and Southern Florida Flood Control project except for features added in 1970 under Section 201 of the 1965 Flood Control
Act. Local interests voluntarily executed contract agreement required by Section 221 of Flood Control Act of 1970. This
contract was approved on 1 July 1972 for all modifications to the project except the features added in 1970. Negotiations
are underway for the assurances for the remaining modifications.

COMPARISON OF FEDERAL COST ESTIMATE: The current Federal (Corps of Engineers) cost estimate of $469,000,000 is an increase
of $28,000,000 over the latest estimate ($441,000,000) presented to Congress. This change includes increases of
$18,248,000 for higher price levels, $52,861,000 due to adjustments in unit costs, $7,598,000 based on more detailed design,
and $2,378,000 for Engineering and Design and Supervision and Administration based on a recent reanalysis of requirements.
These increases are partially offset by decreases of $296,000 due to contract actions and $52,789,000 based on an economic
restudy of this project.

BENEFIT-COST RATIO: The B/C ratio last presented to Congress (FY 1974) was 5.2 to 1. The current B/C ratio is 4.4 to 1.
The B/C ratio is based on the project functioning independently.

STATUS OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT: A Draft Environmental Statement for the project was submitted to CEQ on 21 June
1971. The Final Statements are scheduled to be prepared and submitted individually to CEQ for segmented portions of the
project, as follows:

OTHER INFORMATION: Funds to initiate preconstruction planning and construction were appropriated in Fiscal Year 1950. The
Appropriations Committee of the House of Representatives, in its report (H.R. No. 93-327) on the 1974 Public Works Appropri-
ation Bill, directed the Corps of Engineers to prepare a report updating the economics and long-range costs for the
project. As a result of the economic update, a number of project facilities have been recommended for reclassification to
the "inactive" status and the construction costs and project benefits have been reviewed. This submission reflects the
results of the economic update.
