2014 Short- Term Water Transfer Project
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Document Description
The SEWD proposes to sell up to 17,464 acre-feet (af) of water to the participating member districts of the State Water Contractors Incorporated (Buyers) during the 2014 irrigation season. In the event SEWD's water supply is cut under its 1969 agreement with the State of California, SEWD will not transfer any water. Buyers are seeking up to approximately 277,745 af of transfer water from various willing sellers in the Sacramento Valley during the 2014 irrigation season. Purchasing this water would lessen potential water supply shortages to these Buyers that may occur as a result of dry hydrologic conditions and regulatory restrictions on pumping in the Delta.
