Berrenda Mesa Water District-Raising Reservoir Spillway Height Project
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Exclusive Agriculture with Minimum 20 acres
The Berrenda Mesa Water District (BMWD), proposes to permanently increase an existing water storage reservoir spillway by 1.25 feet. For the past two summers a temporary structure has been used to raise the spillway by 1.25 feet. The reservoir is located approximately 9 miles southwest of the Town of Devil's Den. This project will permanently increase reservoir capacity and improve BMWD's off peak pumping capability. This will lessen the strain the pump station places on the California electricity grid during peak hours. The extra storage capacity provided by the reservoir allows the district to shift pumping to off peak hours without affecting deliveries to customers.
