Redirected Contract PG&E Water from the Miocene Canal to the Thermalito Power Canal
NOD - Notice of Determination
Present Land Use
Cal Water proposes to change a portion of its water conveyance process by redirecting approximately 3,000 AF of its contracted Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) water from the Miocene Canal to Lake Oroville, to the Thermalito Power Canal, and to the District's water treatment plant. Cal Water will reduce deliveries to the Lower Miocene Canal but will continue to provide sufficient "carrier" water to accommodate seepage, water loss due to leakage, and evaporation, so that all of its existing rural irrigation customers are able to receive their contracted amounts. Butte County, as a State Water Contractor, will provide "wheeling" services for the redirected water.
