[1]  So in original. Probably should be “section”.

Section was enacted as part of the Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1996, and not as part of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act which comprises this chapter.


2000—Subsec. (e). Pub. L. 106–457 substituted “to carry out this section $40,000,000 for each of fiscal years 2001 through 2005” for “$15,000,000 for each of the fiscal years 1997 through 2000 to carry out this section”.
