Document Description
On April 18, 1996, the City of Stockton filed Application 30531 for a water right permit authorizing the appropriation of water diverted from the San Joaquin River for municipal and industrial purposes. The City's Delta Water Supply Project (DWSP) is a new supplemental water supply for the City's metropolitan area. The proposed total amount of water to be appropriated under originally filed Application 30531 was limited to 125,900 acre-feet per annum (afa), to be diverted at a maximum diversion rate not to exceed 317 cubic feet per second (at build-out in 2050). The water to be diverted from the source, San Joaquin River, will be: (a) treated wastewater discharged into the San Joaquin River at the City's Regional Wastewater Control Facility, and (b) additional amounts. The City proposes to appropriate treated wastewater discharged into the San Joaquin River pursuant to the provisions of Water Code section 1485, and to appropriate additional amounts under claim of seniority pursuant to Water code section 11460. The DWSP proposes to incrementally develop in phases the supplemental water supply that the City seeks to appropriate pursuant to Application 30531. During Phase 1, the City proposes to construct a new water intake facility in the San Joaquin River (POD #1 described under Application 30531), raw water and treated water transmission lines and a new water treatment plant capacity under Phase 1 development would be 30 million gallons per day (mgd), or 33,600 afa. Ultimately, by 2050, the new water treatment plant would be expanded to treat 160 mgd, which includes the maximum diversion applied for under Application 30531 of 125,900 afa.
