Sutter Extension Water District 2011 Water Transfer Program
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration

Document Description
Sutter Extension Water District proposes to sell up to 17,952 acre-feet of water to the participating member districts of the State Water Contractors Incorporated during the 2011 irrigation season. Sutter Extension proposes to make water available through both crop idling and groundwater substitution. Purchase of the water would lessen potential water supply shortages to the State Water Contractors that may occur as a result of dry hydrologic conditions and regulatory restrictions on pumping in the Delta. Under the proposed project, water made available by crop idling or groundwater substitution within the boundaries of Sutter Extension could then be retained and stored in Lake Oroville by the Department of Water Resources for delivery to the State Water Contractors.
