Document Description
Butte Water District (Butte WD) is proposing a 1-year program (2003) in which farmers would voluntarily idle their land served with district surface water. Idling would reduce Butte WD deliveries by up to 20% (19,680 acre-feet). Butte WD proposes a short-term transfer of the water to the DWR Environmental Water Account (EWA) program, which proposes to purchase this water.
