2015 El Dorado Irrigation District to Westlands Water District Temporary Water Transfer Project
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
EID reservoirs; El Dorado National Forest, rural lands within El Dorado County, and Central Valley Project facilities
Document Description
EID proposes to transfer up to 3,100 acre-feet of water to Westland's Water District during summer and fall 2015. EID would make the water available through re-operations of EID reservoirs to release water otherwise planned to be consumed by EID customers and/or stored within the EID network of reservoirs. The transfer quantity includes approximately 700 AF that would be released from Weber Reservoir, and approximately 2,400 AF that would be released from Silver Lake. But for the Project, EID would otherwise retain the 700 AF in Weber Reservoir and add the 2,400 AF to storage in Jenkinson lake or use it directly to meet summer/fall 2015 demands that would instead be met with water previously stored in Jenkinson Lake.
