McKay Point Reservoir Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation

Document Description
The Owners propose to develop approximately 200 acres within the 500- acre McKayPoint property into a surface water storage and re-regulation reservoir (the Proposed Project). The reservoir would be located on the north side of the divergence of the Lower Kaweah River and St. Johns River. The Project would consist of the following phases: excavation of the site for the reservoir; construction of the reservoir; and operation of the reservoir. The Owners would contract with West Coast Sand and Gravel (WCSG) to excavate the site to allow for the construction of the reservoir. After the excavation and construction of the reservoir, the McKay Point Reservoir would be used as a surface water storage / re-regulation reservoir. The reservoir would also be used to optimize groundwater recharge within the Owners service areas.
