Document Description
Pursuant to the Quantification Settlement Agreement (QSA) signed in October 2003, IID agreed to limit its annual diversions of Colorado River water to 3.1 million acre-feet per year. As a result of this cap on diversions, the demand for water by users within the District may exceed the supply available to the District, referred to herein as a "supply/demand imbalance" (SDI). IID has determined that a plan must be adopted to equitably distribute the available water supplies amongst the users in the event that IID determines that an SDI is likely to occur in any individual year. The equitable distribution of water is required pursuant to California Water Code Section 22252. The Equitable Distribution Plan, while required by State law, also eases the burden on water users by providing agricultural users with certainty regarding the method of water allocation in the event of an SDI so they can plan appropriately and minimize economic effects of a reduction in their water supply. In the event of an SDI, the proposed Equitable Distribution Plan would allocate the available water supply to water user accounts based on water use types.
