Document Description
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) proposes to enter into a surface storage operating agreement with the San Diego County Water Authority (Authority) for enhanced operations through surface storage. Coordinated operations among Metropolitan, the Authority, and Authority member agencies regarding use of the reservoir capacity in San Diego County will benefit the Authority, its member agencies, and Metropolitan's member agencies by reducing peak demands on the Robert A. Skinner Filtration Plant (Skinner Plant) and the San Diego Pipelines 1 through 5 and by helping to ensure water supplies are available to meet peak demands. The agreement will: (1) deliver water into storage during low demand periods; (2) enhance operational flexibility for Metropolitan, member agencies served by the Skinner Plant, and the Authority's member agencies; (3) reduce peak demands on Metropolitan and the Authority facilities, including the Skinner Plant, Metropolitan pipelines, and the Authority pipelines; and (4) efficiently utilize local treatment and storage facilities by conserving water during the winter months for use in summer months.
