Document Description
City of Santa Cruz Water Department and Soquel Creek Water District are proposing to enter into a 5-year agreement under the which the City will transfer available winter supply from Majors Creek and Liddell Springs to the District under a resource management pilot program. The project also considers potential future extension of the agreement beyond the 5-yr pilot period. Under certain conditions, winter water will be directed from existing intakes on Liddell Spring and/or Majors Creek through the City's system (north coast piping, coast pump station, Graham Hill Water Treatment Plant, and potable water distribution system) and then to existing metered interties with the district. No physical improvements to the City's or District's systems are required for this project. Additionally, the source water is from the city's pre-1914 appropriative water rights, and the amount of water transferred will be within the range of what has been delivered to and used in the city in the past.
