Page 301, after line 53, insert:
"L.  Out of the amounts appropriated for this item, $85,000 the first year from the general fund and $85,000 the first year in nongeneral funds is provided for the implementation of the first phase of the report prepared by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Rappahannock River Basin Commission, and partner localities entitled Middle and Upper Rappahannock River Basin Rainfall, Stream, and Water Quality Gauging Analysis.  The implementation of this first phase of the project represents a partnership between the Commonwealth and localities in the middle and upper Rappanhannock River basins."

(This amendment provides general fund support for the Commonwealth's share of the cost for the Rappahannock River Basin Rainfall, Stream, and Water Quality Gauging project and nongeneral funds for the local share of these implementation costs. The first phase of the project involves various components, such as an evaluation of whether existing Emergency Management IFLOWS sites are appropriate for the new gauges, evaluation of radio path analysis to determine if any proposed sites would have frequency interference, application to the federal FCC for permits to operate gauges using radio frequencies, and initial installation of some gauges. A portion of these costs will also be borne by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.)
