Document Description
The 2007 DWWSP EIR describes the need for water supply transfer agreements when the diversion prohibition in the State Water Board’s Standard Permit Term 91 (Term 91) is in effect. To provide a reliable water supply during such conditions, the Project Partners may enter into water supply transfer agreements with holders of senior water rights or contracts with the Bureau of Reclamation for diversions within the Sacramento River watershed. During periods when the Term 91 diversion prohibition is in effect, the Project Partners would divert water through transfer agreements or sales, as authorized by such senior water rights or contracts. The 2007 DWWSP EIR identified several senior water rights holders as potential suppliers to the Project Partners when the Term 91 diversion prohibition is in effect. Since that time, additional potential suppliers have been identified, including the South Sutter Water District (SSWD). SSWD has post-1914 appropriative water rights for collection and withdrawal from storage in Camp Far West Reservoir from the Bear River. The SSWD transfer water supplies would be released from Camp Far West Reservoir storage, measured at the Camp Far West Diversion Dam, and conveyed via the Bear River, Feather River, and Sacramento River to the Agency’s existing diversion facility for diversion and use by the Agency. SSWD is willing to agree to a transfer of up to 6.0 TAF during the period of approximately April 15, 2022 through August 31, 2022 at a rate of up to 16.0 million gallons per day (MGD). In addition, the agreement with SSWD includes an option for the sale and transfer of up to 4.0 TAF during the period of November 1, 2022 through March 31, 2023, which would be transferred at a rate of up to 10 MGD. This addendum addresses the potential sale and transfer of SSWD water (up to 6.0 TAF) to the Agency during the period of approximately April 15, 2022 through August 31, 2022 at a rate of up to 16.0 million gallons per day (MGD). In addition, the agreement with SSWD includes an option for the sale and transfer of up to 4.0 TAF during the period of November 1, 2022 through March 31, 2023. The water would be diverted at the DWWSP intake/diversion structure, located on the Sacramento River, at rate not to exceed 10.0 MGD up to a total 4.0 TAF between the period of November 1, 2022 through March 31, 2023.
