Document Description
The San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority is a responsible agency for the project named "Exchange Contractor 5-Year Transfer Project." Annually for 5 years, the San Joaquin River Exchange Contractors Water Authority will transfer up to 80,000 acre feet of CVP substitute supply water to the United States Bureau of Reclamation for Level 4 refuge use, to participating members of the San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority for existing irrigation and a small amount of existing M&I supply, and to Madera Irrigation District for irrigation supply. The Exchange Contractors will develop replacement supplies for use within their boundaries from conservation/tailwater recovery and groundwater pumping. Transferred water will be delivered through the Tracy Pumping plant to members of the San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority for delivery through existing systems and will be used by the Exchange Contractors and US Bureau of Reclamation.
