Document Description
The proposed program would provide the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California with a water supply option of 25,000 acre-feet up to approximately 111,000 acre-feet of Colorado River water per year for 35 years. Under the proposed program, water normally used to irrigate farmland within the Palo Verde Valley portion of PVID would be 'saved' and an equal amount of water would be made available to Metropolitan. The water would be 'saved' through land management and crop rotation measures, which are part of the proposed program.
