Either KCWA will deliver the water on MWDSC's behalf to RRB for storage directly in the Strand Ranch or into storage in other existing water banking or exchange programs (including the Kern Water Bank) in which IRWD is a participant in Kern County with a subsequent transfer to the Strand Ranch. IRWD is a participant in the Kern Water Bank through Dudley Ridge Water District. CCWA may request MWDSC to instruct DWR to return deliver an amount equivalent to one third of its portion (50% of the total storage amount) of the stored water less proportional and applicable losses back to CCWA in any year that CCWA requires the supplies. Stored water would be delivered to CCWA in any year that CCWA requires the supplies. Stored water would be delivered to CCWA through direct recovery from the Strand Ranch and/or exchange. The remaining 50% of banked water after proportional and applicable losses shall be transferred to MWDSC for mutual use of MWDSC and IRWD. CCWA's request for delivery by exchange shall take place prior to the end of the fifth calendar year subsequent to the recharge of the water.
