Document Description
Under the proposed project, Rosedale shall deliver 10,000 acre/feet (AF) of water to the Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) at a designated point in the California Aqueduct (namely, the Tupman Branch in Kern County). CVWD will then exchange that 10,000 AF of water with MWD for Colorado River water pursuant to the 1983 Agreement. That Colorado River water will be received by CVWD via the existing Colorado Aqueduct and delivered to CVWD's existing Whitewater Spreading Facility, which is located north of the City of Palm Springs in the Coachella Valley. No new construction is therefore necessary for this project in order for CVWD to receive Rosedale's water.
