NOTES: Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.
For 1985 through 1994, water and pipeline expenditures have been revised. Revisions in water data reflects a new approach instituted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Pipeline expenditure data has been revised due to inconsistencies found during a routine audit of the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics database.
