Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Seller actions will occur on agricultural property; buyers will use water mostly for agricultural uses with some municipal use

Document Description
Note: Shorten Review This MND and IS/EA analyzes environmental impacts of proposed water transfers from willing sellers to buyers in the Central Valley and Santa Clara Valley area to help address water shortages in these areas. The environmental document includes transfers of Central Valley Project (CVP) water through CVP or State Water Project facilities and transfers of non-CVP water supplies that require the use of CVP facilities. The water would be made available for transfer through a combination of cropland idling and groundwater substitution. The transfers could originate in Colusa, Glenn, Sacramento, Shasta, Sutter, Tehama, or Yolo counties. The transfer buyers could be in Fresno, Kings, Merced, San Benito, Santa Clara, San Joaquin, or Stanislaus counties.
