Document Description
Delivery of up to 50,000 acre-feet of WWD's allocated CVP supplies during the 2006-2007 water year. The up to 50,000 acre-feet of WWD allocated CVP water supply proposed for this temporary diversion and storage is currently stored in San Luis Reservoir and is scheduled for delivery to WWD prior to May 31, 2007. Up to 50,000 acre-feet of the WWD supply would be conveyed via the San Luis Canal and California Aqueduct to Semitropic's turnout in Reach 10A of the California Aqueduct and/or at KCWA's turnouts in Reach 12E. Return of the water supply is anticipated to occur within the next five to seven years, during the next water supply shortage. At that time, the exchanged water would be made available through Semitropic's SWP Table A allocation, through an exchange of CVP water supply, or by pumping Semitropic groundwater into the California Aqueduct as an exchange for SWP Table A water.
