The CVPIA establishes the "Central Valley Project Restoration Fund" and gives the Secretary the authority to use this fund "to carry out the habitat restoration, improvement and acquisition (from willing sellers) provisions" of the CVPIA (section 3407). The fund is based in part on Congressional appropriations and on a surcharge imposed on CVP water and power contractors.
