The President's FY 2005 budget for USGS highlights

The President has proposed a budget of $919.8 million for the Department of the Interior's (DOI) U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Fiscal Year 2005. The 2005 budget will emphasize core USGS science programs that focus on water resources and water availability, natural hazards, biology, information technology, and projects that support science on the DOI landscape that will assist land and natural resource managers in making decisions based on science.

"This marks the 125th year the people of USGS have served America through exploration and scientific study. In FY 2005, we will put emphasis on providing science to help meet other DOI bureaus' natural resource management needs and on the President's Management Agenda," said USGS Director Charles Groat.

"Our efforts for 2005 will focus on water availability and invasive species, as well as our response to natural hazards, all of which are issues of critical importance to land and resource managers and to all Americans. We will continue to provide timely, objective scientific information to other Federal agencies, state and local partners and stakeholders to address critical societal issues. We will also enhance activities associated with financial management and information technology security," Groat said.

For FY 2005, the budget requests $2.8 million for increased studies in the Klamath Basin. This initiative focuses on improving the understanding of two endangered fish species in Upper Klamath Lake and how their survival is affected by changes in water quality and quantity and natural climatic cycles. The Klamath Basin initiative supports the Department's goal of sustaining biological communities on DOI managed and influenced lands and waters in a manner consistent with responsibilities regarding the allocation and use of water.

Increased funding of $1.0 million for Science on the DOI Landscape in FY 2005 will address science research that supports DOI bureaus, ensuring that t
