House Committee on Natural Resources Subcommittee on Water and Power
The U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources Subcommittee on Water and Power is one of the five subcommittees within the House Committee on Natural Resources. It is the "authorizing Subcommittee for the Bureau of Reclamation and the federal power marketing administrations," with jurisdiction over "irrigation, water recycling and hydropower" issues. 
The subcommittee's website states, "With water resources already scarce, yet vital to both the agriculture that feeds our nation and the urban regions millions call home, ensuring an adequate water supply for all Americans remains one of the greatest challenges confronting our nation today. ... By focusing attention on projects that protect and restore endangered species habitat, and by using emerging technologies to develop new water supplies through recycling and desalination, the Subcommittee will continue to forge a new direction in our nation's water management priorities." 
- Grace Napolitano (Calif.), Chair
