Common Landowne Transfer of up to 4,000 a.f. of TLBWSD 2012 State Water Project Water to Westlands Water District
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Tulare Lake Basin Water Storage District will transfer up to 4,000 a.f. of its 2012 State Water Project water to Westlands Water District for Westlake Farms who farms in both districts. The transfer will be completed by December 31, 2012. This proposed transfer is designed to enable Westlake Farms to better manage their respective water supplies. No lands will be fallowed as a result of the transfer and no additional groundwater will be pumped. The lands have been actively farmed in the past.
Tulare Lake has determined that there are no foreseeable environmental impacts because, both lands have been actively farmed, no new land has been developed, no additional groundwater will be pumped, and there is no physical change associated with this project. The single year transfer is also exempt from CEQA under Water Code Section 1729. Further, the transfer is categorically exempt under CEQA since it involves the use and operation of an existing facility.
