Document Description
NOTE: Review Per Lead Sale of up to 19,470 acre-feet of water to participating member districts of the State Water Project Contractors Authority (Buyers) during the 2010 irrigation season to lessen potential water supply shortages to the Buyers that may occur as a result of dry hydrologic conditions and regulatory restrictions on pumping in the Delta. As a willing seller, BWGWD would make up to 19,740 acre-feet of water available to Buyers by idling up to 5,900 acres of cropland (i.e., non-irrigation of farmland by voluntary participants). Water made available by crop idling within the boundaries of BWGWD would then be retained and stored by the Department of Water Resources for delivery to Buyers.
