Document Description
Reclamation District No. 108 is applying for a permit to divert 36,000 acre feet of water from the Sacramento River for the purpose of irrigation, rice straw decomposition, wildlife enhancement and recreational purposes during the non-irrigation season (November 1 through February 1). The maximum acreage to be irrigated is assumed to be 18,000 acres within the total irrigation service area of the District consisting of 47,057 acres. The application is to extend the existing irrigation season from October to February primarily for rice straw decomposition with incidental benefits for wildlife and water fowl which have related recreational uses. Additionally, irrigation of some fall crops such as alfalfa and orchards would be included. Rice straw decomposition in lieu of straw burning also provides significant air quality benefits in the Sacramento Valley. The point of diversion is the Wilkins Slough Pumping Plant which is a screened facility. No new construction of pumps, diversion structures or conveyance systems are required and the lands to be flooded are currently irrigated.
