Document Description
The CLWA and MWD Water Exchange Agreement will provide for CLWA to make a portion of its SWP water stored in San Luis Reservoir available to MWD in exchange for a return of water in 2017, when CLWA anticipates that it will be able to beneficially use the water. CLWA will transfer up to 30,000 acre-feet of water stored by CLWA in San Luis Reservoir to MWD. For every three acre-feet of Exchanged Water shall be delivered to MWD, MWD shall return two acre feet of MWD's SWP water stored in San Luis Reservoir at a mutually agreeable delivery date prior to December 31, 2017. The point of delivery for all return water shall also be San Luis Reservoir.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption

Reasons for Exemption
Because the action will rely on the operation of existing facilities and there will be negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination, the project also qualifies for a categorical Exemption from CEQA pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines Section 15301.
