The proposed project has two main features: the expansion of the desalter program such that the groundwater pumping for the desalters will reach 40,000 acre-ft/yr and that the pumping will occur in amounts and at locations that contribute to the achievement of hydraulic control; and the strategic reduction in groundwater storage (Re-Operation) that, along with the expanded desalter program, significantly achieves hydraulic control for the Chino Groundwater Basin. Through Re-Operation and pursuant to a Judgment Amendment. Watermaster will engage in controlled overdraft and use up to a maximum of 400,000 acre-ft/yr, which corresponds to the raw water pumping requirement of 11,800 acre-ft/yr expanding to 23,900 ac-ft/yr. The new product water developed at Desalter II would be conveyed to the Jurupa Community Services District, the City of Ontario, and/or Western Municipal Water District through existing and new piplines.
