Document Description
The MPG, an 11-member unincorporated association of farmers, proposes to extend the existing Exchange Agreements with Reclamation to ensure continued water availability to MPG farmers in the Westlands Water District. MPG irrigated lands are located in the SLC service area in Westlands, and near Mendota Pool. The Exchange Agreements are set to expire on December 31, 2014. Reclamation administers the CVP and would be responsible for continued execution of the exchange. The proposed project would allow MPG farmers to continue the exchange for an additional 20-year period from 2015 through 2034. The water exchange allows MPG farmers to deliver groundwater of suitable quality to Mendota Pool in exchange for CVP irrigation water delivered via the SLC for use on MPG-owned farms in Westlands.
