Document Title
Turnipseed Groundwater Bank Phase 2
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The Project would use existing conveyance facilities and deepen existing recharge basins by ~1 ft and use the excavated material to build up the existing basin levees to increase basin storage and recharge capacity. Above-ground storage capacity volume would increase by 64 acre ft, from ~150-175 af, and improve the District's ability to capture waters that are only available for a limited time period. The Project recovery wells would include high-accuracy saddle flow meters and would recover a maximum of 4,770 acre ft per year from groundwater bank. It is anticipated that the water would be used to meet dry-year demands in DEID one third of the time, and in other years the water could be marketed to other water agencies. This water, which represents about 4% of the District's annual deliveries, would be better managed by the provision of an additional facility for storage of available water, and reduce pressure on regional surface water storage facilities.
