PVID Land Management Crop Rotation and Water Supply Program
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Irrigated agricultural crop lands zoned for agricultural use
The proposed program is planned to develop a flexible and reliable water supply for The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) of approximately 25,000 to 111,000 acre-feet of Colorado River water per year for 35 years. Participants who commit to the proposed Program would be compensated by Metropolitan for not irrigating a portion (up to approximately 29%) of their farms on a rotating basis. Water saved under the proposed program would be made available to Metropolitan to help meet existing demand within its service area.
