Document Description
On April 28, 2015, EBMUD approved transfers of Central Valley Project (CVP) water from Glenn-Colusa Irrigation District (GCID), Sycamore Mutual Water Company (SMWC), and Reclamation District 1004 (RD 1004). The water would be made available for transfer through cropland idling/crop shifting and be delivered via the Freeport Regional Water Facility (Project). EBMUD recently declared a stage 4 critical drought and the need to use the Freeport Facility to deliver supplemental water to EBMUD's service area. Due to an unexpectedly low CVP allocation, EBMUD is implementing the Project to secure additional water to address water supply shortages.
