Groundwater Pumping and Conveyance Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
Project is located in Fresno and Kings Counties within the WWD. The source of the water would be groundwater wells located throughout the WWD. The proposed Project would result in no more than 30,000 acre feet (AF) of groundwater being pumped into the San Luis Canal (SLC) annually from 2016-2019. The groundwater would be pumped into the SLC via licensed water integration facilities located on either side of this canal. Although wells are located throughout the WWD, only those where groundwater produced meets the US Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) 2015 SLC Water Quality Monitoring Program which is based off of the Title 22 water quality standards for integration into the SLC would be used.
