Local cost participation requirements and procedures for determining the local share of project cost are similar to those for navigation projects specifically authorized by Congress under regular authorization procedures.

No project is to be recommended for implementation under the Section 107 authority for which the total constant dollar Federal costs over 50 years exceed the greater of $4,500,000 or 2.25 times the Federal construction cost, both discounted at the current water project discount rate.
