Application to Appropriate Santa Ana River Water Recirculated Draft Program Environmental Impact Report

Document Description
The Orange County Water District (OCWD of District) has filed an Application to the State Water Resources Control Board to appropriate water from the Santa Ana River (SAR), which flows through portions of San Bernardino, Riverside, and Orange Counties. The District requests a permit that recognizes its current water rights and diversion practices as well as appropriation of the river's increasing flow at Prado Dam that would otherwise reach the Pacific Ocean. It is anticipated that future base flow and storm flow in the SAR below Prado Dam will increase due to urbanization in the upper SAR watershed. The District wants to formalize with the SWRCB the right to capture whatever level of additional base and storm flow may reach Prado Basin in the future, up to 505,000 acre-feet per year (afy).
