Document Description
South Sutter Water District ("SSWD") proposes a temporary transfer of a limited quantity of its water supplies in 2014 to certain participating State Water Contractors (the "Project") Water will be made available for transfer by SSWD's re-operation of Camp Far West Reservoir. Such re-operation will result in additional water being available in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta for conveyance through the State Water Project to the State Water Contractors. SSWD will seek approval from the State Water Resources Control Board of an urgent petition for temporary change to License 11118 to authorize the proposed water transfer. SSWD also will seek approval of the proposed water tranfer from the California Department of Water Resources.
