Mojave Water Agency Water Supply Reliability and Groundwater Replenishment Program
NOP - Notice of Preparation
Consistent with its 1994 Regional Water Management Plan and recently adopted Regional Water Management Plan, Mojave Water Agency (MWA) proposes to prepare a project-specific Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to consider a Water Supply Reliability and Groundwater Replenishment Program (Project Under Consideration). The Project Under Consideration is intended to:
* Enhance water supply reliability;
* Increase overall groundwater replenishment and offset groundwater overdraft;
* Enhance MWA's ability to manage to improve groundwater quality;
* Raise groundwater levels at selected sites to enhance riparian vegetation; and
* Provide opportunities for MWA to engage in innovative water banking and water exchange programs.
To accomplish these objectives, MWA is considering utilizing existing facilities, enahncing existing facilities, and/or constructing new facilities to increase capacity for groundwater recharge and extraction. In conjunction with these facilities, MWA is considering modifying its current operations to include water anking programs and/or water exchange programs to enhance operational flexibility and water supply reliability.
