Document Description
The Rancho California Water District proposes to construct the Vail Lake Transmission Main and Pump Station to extend the raw water conveyance system from the existing Valle de Los Caballos groundwater, recharge basins to Vail Lake. Completion of this project would enable raw water, up to a maximum capacity of 80 cfs, purchased by the District from the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) of Southern California, to be stored in Vail Lake. This would improve the District's water supply reliability and reduce its imported water costs. The Vail Lake Transmission Main would be a two-way flow pipeline conveyance facility, both to store raw water in Vail Lake and to distribute the stored MWD raw water from Vail Lake to the District's groundwater recharge basins and raw water conveyance facilities.
