Document Description
Permanent transfer of 16,000 acre-feet per year of State Water Project (SWP) Table A Water entitlement from Berrenda Mesa Water District (BMWD) to Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) and Desert Water Agency (DWA). The transfer would use existing conveyance and recharge facilities and involve no construction or expansion of facilities. Potential effects on the CVWD and DWA service areas, the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, Colorado River and SWP of the water transfer were fully addressed in a 2002 Program EIR for the Coachella Valley Water Management Plan and State Water Project Entitlement Transfer. Potential effects on BMWD were addressed in the February 1996 Final EIR for Transfer of Water Entitlements from Berrenda Mesa Water District for Use in Dougherty Valley Area and the 2002 Addendum to that EIR and updated for this project. This Subsequent EIR tiers off those documents. BMWD, DWA, Kern County Water Agency, and the California Department of Water Resources are responsible agencies.
