Because of an ongoing drought in the watershed, JLPUD has petitioned the State Water Resources Control Board to reduce the bypass requirement in its water right licenses and permits [List] from 200 to 18 gallons per minute.
Declared Emergency S:21080,15269
Emergency Project S:21080,15269
The new bypass meets standards set in Fish and Game Code 6022, JLPUD has consulted with the Department of Fish and Wildlife to ensure that this change would not adversely affect fish or wildlife species (see attached). The project would not result in the construction or modification of any new facilities.
