Chino Basin Optimum Basin Management Program
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Document Description
This Draft Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) addresses the environmental and physical impacts of implementing the Optimum Basin Management Program to manage the Chino Groundwater Basin (the Basin) for maximal long-term beneficial use by all appropriators and parties within the approximately 225,000 acre project area. Implementation of the OBMP is designed to maintain and enhance the Basin's safe-yield and will assist in minimizing overproduction of groundwater resources. A water supply plan is also included and evaluated under the OBMP. This plan will allow appropriators to meet future demands using a variety of source water supplies, and will allow appropriators to provide an adequate supply of both potable and recycled water throughout the twenty-year planning period encompassed in the document.
