Document Description
On May 7, 2010, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) filed a temporary urgency petition pursuant to Water Code section 1435 et seq. to extend the season of rediversion under Permit 13776 (Application 18115) for 30 days, from May 15, 2010 to June 15, 2010. Under permit 13776, as part of the Central Valley Project (CVP), Reclamation diverts Stony Creek water to storage in Black Butte Reservoir from November 1 of each year to April 30 of the succeeding year. Water is then released from storage and rediverted at the Stony Creek Siphon (Constant Head Orific or CHO) into the Tehama-Colusa Canal (TC Canal), which serves the Tehama Colusa Canal Authority (TCCA), from April 1 to may 15 and from September 15 to October 29. With the temporary urgency petition, Reclamation seeks to extend the season of rediversion at the CHO.
