Document Description
The Palmdale Water District plans to develop groundwater banking programs with new spreading grounds to recharge imported water and potentially recycled water, as well as recovery facilities to help meet future water demands and improve reliability. The proposed project would deliver raw imported water from the East Branch of the California Aqueduct (State Water Project [SWP] water) to a new recharge basin located in the City of Palmdale. For the magnitude of recharge proposed under the project, SWP water would need to be recharged nearly year round. Recycled water produced locally also may be included in the recharge (compliant with applicable regulations); this source is anticipated to be available at an approximately constant rate year-round. The recharge capacity of the project is projected to be approximately 50,000 to 52,000 acre-feet per year (AF/yr).
