Document Description
Under an option agreement, GCID proposes to sell and transfer to Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD), and MWD proposes to buy and receive from GCID, a short-term supply of up to 60,000 acre feet of surplus water made available by GCID during the 2003 irrigation season. If MWD exercises its option under the agreement, GCID will provide this surplus water in accordance with a crop idling program undertaken by GCID in cooperation with its landowners who voluntarily decide to participate in the program. In order to provide greater flexibility for the delivery and conveyance of the water transferred from GCID to MWD, GCID intends to enter into a Warren Act contract with the United States Bureau of Reclamation, which would allow GCID's storage of the transfer water in Shasta Reservoir, for later release during the 2003 irrigation season.
