Document Description
Note: Extended to end on 12/10/10. Palmdale Water District (PWD) is preparing an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for its proposed Strategic Water Resources Plan (SWRP or proposed project). PWD is the Lead Agency, the agency with primary responsibility for carrying out and/or approving the SWRP. The proposed project would apply to PWD's 47-square mile water district service area, which is located in the Antelope Valley area of Los Angeles County, California. Under the Recommended Strategy, PWD would acquire approximately 25,000 acre-feet per year (AFY) of additional imported supplies by 2020 and 35,000 AFY by 2035, by acquiring new surface water rights through permanent transfers, multi-year leases, and short-term transfers. The Recommended Strategy includes implementation of a local groundwater banking program to be supported by increased imported supplies. The banking program would require new facilities for recharge and recovery, including new spreading facilities, extraction wells, and ASR wells.
