Huichica Hills Ranch #81 Water Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The project is limited to the conversion of the existing on-stream Dutra Reservoir #1 into a larger off-stream storage pond for recycled water at the Huichica Hills Ranch #81. The enlarged pond will be equivalent in size to the on-stream reservoir proposed at the same location under Water Right Permit 20901 (Application 29426).
The existing on-stream reservoir has experienced increased levels of siltation, thereby decreasing the storage capacity available for irrigation of vineyards.
