A Congressman requested GAO's comments on a bill to authorize the United States Maritime Commission to grant to the East Bay Municipal Utility District an easement for the contruction and operation of an interceptor sewer pipe line in and under certain Government-owned lands comprising a part of the Maritime Alameda Shipyard in Alameda, California.

While GAO had no information as to the necessity for this legislation, it appears that improved sewage disposal facilities available to Government property or to areas adjascent thereto might be desirable. GAO had no objection favorable consideration of the bill.
