Document Description
NOTE: Review Per Lead Sale of up to 30,000 acre ft of water to participating memver districts of the State Water Project Contractors Authority (Buyers) during the 2010 irrigation season to lessen potential water supply shotages 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 WCWD would make up to 30,000 acre ft of water available to Buyers by idling cropland (i.e. non-irrigation of farmland by voluntary participants). Water made available by crop idling within the boundaries of WCWD would then be retained and stored by the Department of Water Resources for delivery to Buyers.
