Present Land Use
Irrigated agriculture and grazing are the main land uses in the project area. Most of the project area is zoned as "A" Exclusive Agriculture, and is given a "Resource" designation in the Kern County General Plan.

Document Description
The project contains two components: (a) water right applications 30325 - 30329 and 31043 - 31048, filed with the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) in 1993 and 1999, and (b) WRMWSD's 850 Canal/Reservoir No. 1 Pump-back. TRC would construct ten new pipelines and nine new weirs to divert water from El Paso, Grapevine, Live Oak, Pastoria, Tecuya, Tejon, and Tunis Creeks as part of the project. TRC will divert a maximum of 15,000 acre-feet per annum (afa) of water by direct diversion and storage, to be used for the purposes of irrigating almonds, grain forage, grapes, olives, pistachios, row crops, and walnuts, mining, and stock watering on WRMWSD and TRC lands. WRMWSD proposes to construct a pump-back facility to pump water from the 850 Canal into Reservoir No. 1 during off-peak energy use hours. The pump-back facility would require the replacement and extension of an existing pipeline and the installation of a new pump station.
