Document Description
The proposed project consists of The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California approving an amendment to the 2010/2011 Water Management Program with member agencies during the 2010/2011 allocation. Due to the combination of low demands and increased water supply in 2010, storage levels have exceeded expectations and have reached levels not seen in several years. The additional water in storage in both regional and State Water Project facilities improves the outlook for 2011 and provides an opportunity to address local storage and water management issues. The 2010/2011 Water Management Program will be modified to remove future call provisions and maintain the current allocation and penalty rates. This action would also authorize administration of the Water Management Program to allow agencies to certify orders and deliveries without requiring specific agency agreements.
