Document Description
On February 9, 2016, East Bay Municipal Utility District approved a one-year water transfer from Yuba County Water Agency for up to 10,000 acre-ft of water under the Lower Yuba River Accord in 2016. Transfer water would be released from YCWA's New Bullards Bar Reservoir and rediverted at the Freeport Regional Water Authority intake on the Sacramento River for delivery to EBMUD's service area. The transfer water would be used to meet anticipated water supply shortages in EBMUD's service area if drought conditions continue into 2016. EBMUD considered the 2007 Lower Yuba River Accord EIR and addenda as prepared by lead agency YCWA.
