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 proposed Program expansion utilizes a portion of the adjudicated water rights of Lakewood in the Central Basin pursuant to a separate agreement between the Long Beach Water Department and Lakewood. The Program will enable Metropolitan to store up to 3,600 acre-feet of water in the Central Basin when surplus water is available during wet years and produce 1,200 acre-feet per year for three years to meet the city of Long Beach's water demands during dry, drought, or emergency periods. 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.
