Document Description
The Exchange Contractors 2014-2018 Water Transfer Agreement with the San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority makes available up to 80,000 acre feet of water conserved through tailwater recapture or other conservation measures for transfer for use by certain members of the San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority for irrigation and M&I purposes. THe M&I use is capped at 5,000 acre feet. Transfers are on a year by year basis available during non-critical years when the Exchange Contractors receive full Central Valley Project supplies and are subject to annual approvals. The quantity transferred for irrigation or M&I use cannot exceed full CVP contract supply to the recipient Water Authority members. A portion of the water is also transferred to Reclamation for Level IV refuge supplies and to the Madera Irrigation District for irrigation use. The proposed agreement covers a sub-set of transfers analyzed in the 2011 EIR prepared by the San Joaquin River Exchange Contractors Water Authority referenced herein.
