Document Description
LADWP proposes to implement a water conservation program to promote irrigation efficiency on LADWP lands in Inyo County that are leased as pastures for livestock grazing and alfalfa fields and are irrigated using sprinklers. The program, on a voluntary basis, would allow lessees to receive a financial credit for reducing water use by increasing sprinkler irrigation efficiency. The financial credit would be 5 percent of the rent payment for the land leased with each 0.1 acre-foot per acre (AF/acre) of water conserved below the current allotment of 5 AF/acre. The maximum credit a lessee would be allowed to receive is 75 percent of the total rent, corresponding to 1.5 AF/acre of water conserved. LADWP would provide guidance and assistance for increasing sprinkler irrigation efficiency through non-structural improvements. The program would be implemented by including new provisions in the lease agreement at the time of renewal or in a separate water conservation agreement to be signed by LADWP and the lessee.
