Document Description
The District is proposing a project which has three primary components 1. Maintain on a long-term basis the fishery bypass flow requirements and compliance measurement point which have been in effect through a court order since 1997. The Old Mammoth Road (OMR) Gage would continue to be used for compliance measurement. The proposed project also proposes one new additional fishery bypass flow requirement of 4 cfs, measured at LADWP's Highway 395 (Old 395) Gage. The purpose of this component is to ensure the continued protection and maintenance of the fishery resources in Mammoth Creek, in compliance with State law. 2. Update the District's Place of Use (POU) for its surface water supplies. The purpose of this component is to allow continued long-term future water service to these entities. 3. Change certain Mammoth Lakes watershed operation constraints (WOCs) which are included in District water right Permit 17332. The purpose of these changes is to eliminate WOCs that are no longer applicable under current operating conditions, or are not consistent with regulatory and/or technical requirements.
