Document Description
Under License 2805, the total authorized rate of diversion is 9.65 cubic feet per second (cfs). The authorized point of diversion is located at the intersection of Dredger Cut (aka Lost Slough) and I-5. When I-5 was built around 1977, the land owners farming the parcels that comprise the 772.5 acres place of use moved their wells to the existing locations. The lands comprising the place of use are now owned by five difference owners that divert pursuant to the license. The license will be split into five licenses, to reflect the ownership changes. Each amended license will receive a portion of the 9.65 cfs. Land use and total water diverted will not change. The change petition was filed to obtain authorization to use the existing pumps operated by the Department of Water Resources (DWR) and Tom Stokes and to reflect the partitioning of the license due to changes in ownership. The diversion are located on Dredger Cut and Reclamation District 1002 Canal. Public notice of the petition was issued on March 24, 2006. No protests were filed. The State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) intends to approve the requested changes.

Reasons for Exemption
The project will not cause significant adverse impacts on any sensitive environment and will not result in significant cumulative impacts. The project involves permitting an existing facility. The points of diversion were constructed to their present state prior to the start of the State Water Board's environmental review and were located at their existing sites. The project does not involve an expansion in use beyond that which existed at the time the State Water Board began its environmental review.
