Document Description
Butte Water District is proposing a 1-year program (2008) in which farmers would voluntarily suspend irrigation of their rice land served with district surface water. Butte Water District proposes a short-term transfer of the water to the California Department of Water Resources' Dry-Year Water Purchase Program, which would resell the water to the Semitropic-Rosamond Water Bank Authority, or other willing buyers. The program would be limited to 20% of the District's irrigable acreage. This program would require no new construction or improvements.
