Document Description
As identified in the Department's May 5, 2010 NOD, the Monterey Plus proposed project is to continue operation under the existing Monterey Amending to the State Water Project long-term water supply contracts (including the Kern Water Bank transfer) and the existing Settlement Agreement entered in PCL v. DWR (including the Attachment A amendments to the State Water Project long-term water supply contracts) in accordance with the terms of those documents as previously executed by the Department and other parties to those documents. The Department revised the project description and revised the 2010 Monterey Plus EIR in response to an order from the Sacramento County Superior Court. With the recently certified Monterey Plus Revised EIR, DWR changed the project description of the Kern Fan Element Property transfer to be: "Transfer of property known as the "Kern Fan Element Property" in Kern County and its development and continued use and operation as a locally owned and operated groundwater banking and recovery project." The Department made no revisions to the other elements of the Monterey amendment or to the Settlement Agreement, and no changes have been made relating to them in the Monterey Plus Revised EIR.
