Document Description
Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) proposes to install approximately 10,775 linear feet of 24-inch recycled water pipeline to deliver recycled water to two dairy farms. The recycled water will be used for on-farm irrigation in exchange for reductions in groundwater pumping from the San Jacinto groundwater basin that is currently in a state of overdraft. More than half of the groundwater being pumped from the San Jacinto subbasin is being used for agricultural irrigation, the water table levels have dropped, and some wells have gone dry. The proposed recycled water pipeline will reduce groundwater pumping in the San Jacinto subbasin and help stabilize the subbasin. The Addendum makes four minor technical changes to the Four-Agency Agreement Re In-Lieu Project. First, the term is amended to allow renewal or withdrawal at the end of the Agreement's thirty-year term. Second, an additional assurance is added such that Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) will utilize the least expensive source of water available in the event neither secondary or tertiary water are available. Third, EMWD agrees to limit any additional agreement providing for the use of recycled water in lieu of groundwater will be limited to groundwater producers in the Management Area and such agreements will not provide parity with or priority over tertiary water. Last, the amending the Exhibits to the Agreement to include updated versions.
