Kern Delta Water District's 128,960-acre service area includes a portion of the City of Bakersfield and its sphere of influence. ~ 107,635 acres (84 percent) are either active agricultural lands or fallow lands interspersed adjacent land uses such as residential, commercial, industrial, recreational, public facilities, dairies and fish farms, and undeveloped/vacant land.

Document Description
Kern Delta Water District's (KDWD) Water Allocation Plan (proposed project) includes management actions that would alter existing operations of District facilities to allow KDWD to optimize the use of water available to the District, provide operational flexibility, and maximize the beneficial use of its Kern River water rights. The proposed project would allow KDWD to allocate water among its canal service areas for beneficial use for surface irrigation, urban land uses, and groundwater recharge. The proposed project would not require KDWD to construct new facilities or new water distribution infrastructure. KDWD provides irrigation water to agricultural customers supplied form the Kern River, groundwater, the State Water Project (SWP), and the Central Valley Project (CVP).
