California Aqueduct 2014 Pump Back Program
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The Project lies within the existing Right of Way of the California Aqueduct

Document Description
The project proposes to install pumps at two Check Structures along the California Aqueduct. This will allow the District, along with the Participating Districts (Belridge Water Storage District, Berrenda Mesa Water District, Lost Hills Water District, and Semitropic Water Storage District) to transport, via reverse flow when necessary, previously stored water into the Aqueduct from May 2014 through April 2015, where it would then be accessible upstream to the District as well as the Participating Districts. Project implementation will allow the District, along with Participating Districts to mitigate water shortage impacts resulting from both the 2013-2014 drought and the currently projected zero percent State Water Project (SWP) water allocation.
