Document Description
The Bureau of Reclamation may acquire from members of the San Joaquin River Group Authority up to 47,000 acre-feet of "supplemental" water if needed. The supplemental water is to provide full Vernalis Adaptive Management Plan (VAMP) test flow conditions at Vernalis during "double step years" for water years 2001 through 2010. The purpose of the Proposed Project is to supplement, under paragraph 8 of the San Joaquin River Agreement (Agreement), the water provided by the Agreement that has been analyzed in the final EIS/EIR (January 1999). This supplemental water may be needed to support the flows in the San Joaquin River at Vernalis, and to assist Reclamation in meeting the Anadromous Fish Restoration Program, Bay-Delta flow objectives as required by State Board Decision 1641, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's 1995 Biological Opinion for Delta Smelt.
