Document Description
The proposed project by DRWD is to request DWR to deliver State Water Project long term water supply contract water for exchange with SGVMWD in accordance with the DRWD's existing water exchange program which has been in effect since 1995 and the 2005 Water Management Plan (SCH# 2004121103). The water exchange program provides for DRWD to deliver SWP water to SGVMWD and SGVMWD to return 95% of the delivered water back to DRWD in future years. The maximum water that SGVMWD is obligated to retain on account for DRWD is 12,500 acre-feet at any time. This is an exchange between state water contractors, within the SWP place of use, with existing turnin/turnout agreements for, but not limited to, water quality procedures. No construction, land use change, or modification to existing facilities have been required to implement the program; no new lands will be brought into production as a result of the program.

DWR established a Class 1 Categorical Exemption for the following reasons: a. State Water Project long-term water supply contract includes provisions for water exchange within the SWP place of use between SWP contractors, b. No construction is required to implement the proposed exchange, and c. The facilities owned and/or operated by DWR, DRWD, and SGVMWD are existing facilities that have not been expanded or modified to implement the proposed exchange.
