Document Description
Santa Margarita Water District filed an application for a temporary permit to appropriate water on March 9, 2015 pursuant to Water Code section 1425. The district proposes to divert return flows from purchased water flowing in Gobernadora Creek. An upper basin will use a wetlands process to treat non-storm flows for irrigation use within the Coto de Caza community. A lower basin will be used to attenuate storm flows. A portion of the water diverted will be stored in the District's Portola reservoir. The temporary permit is necessary to reduce the District's reliance on imported water and prevent the imminent loss of grant funding for the project.
