Document Description
The California Department of Water Resources allocated funds to The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) to help finance Southern California water reliability projects targeting groundwater conjunctive use projects within Metropolitan's service area. Conjunctive use projects improve the water supply reliability for the entire region by creating additional dry-year supply. The Long Beach Conjunctive Use Program (Program) expansion in the city of Lakewood is located within the Central Basin. The Program includes the construction of an aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) well and a pipeline to connect the well in Lakewood into Long Beach's water supply distribution system. Under the agreement, Long Beach would be responsible for the design, construction, and operation of the facilities and Metropolitan would pay for costs for operations and maintenance of the well and energy costs for extraction of stored water.
