(b) Sections 2, 3,4, 5, 6,7, and 8(c)(3), and the first sentence of section 10(a), of such Act are each amended by striking out "Surgeon General" and "Surgeon General's" wherever they appear therein and inserting in lieu thereof "Secretary" and "Secretary's", respectively. (c) Sections 4(a) and 7 (c) of such Act are each amended by striking out "Public Health Service" and inserting in lieu thereof "Department of Health, Education, and Welfare". (d) Sections 7(a)(2)(B) and 10(b) of such Act are each amended by striking out "Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare" and inserting in lieu thereof "Secretary". (e) Section 10(a) of such Act is amended by striking out the second and third sentences thereof. SEC. 2. Section 2 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act is amended by inserting " (a) " after "SEC. 2." and by inserting at the end of such section the following: " (b)(1) In the survey or planning of any reservoir by the Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Reclamation, or other Federal agency, consideration shall be given to inclusion of storage for regulation of streamflow for the purpose of water quality control, except that any such storage and water releases shall not be provided as a substitute for adequate treatment or other methods of controlling waste at the source. " (2) The need for and the value of storage for this purpose shall be determined by these agencies, with the advice of the Secretary, and his views on these matters shall be set forth in any report or presentation to the Congress proposing authorization or construction of any reservoir including such storage. "(3) The value of such storage shall be taken into account in determining the economic value ot the entire project of which it is a part, and costs shall be allocated to the purpose of water quality control in a manner which will insure that all project purposes share equitably in the benefits of multiple-purpose construction.
