Document Description
Yuba County Water Agency (YCWA) is submitting a petition to modify the terms of YCWA's water right permits to change the effective date of RD-1644 long-term instream flow requirements from April 21, 2006 to March 1, 2007. Additionally, pursuant to Water Code §1725, YCWA and hte California Department of Water Resources (DWR) propose to conduct a one-year water transfer for 2006 (April 2006 through February 2007). The proposed project would enable a one-year water transfer of up to 125,000 acre-feet of water from YCWA to DWR, which would provide YCWA a source of revenue and assist DWR in meeting a substantial portion of the Environmental Water Account Program asset acquisition goal for 2006. The proposed project involves YCWA transferring water from New Bullards Bar Reservoir via the Yuba River Development Project (Yuba Project) facilities to DWR via the lower Yuba River, lower Feather River, Sacramento River, and the Delta.
