Document Description
The agency proposes the development and operation of a groundwater bank on approx 1,500 acres of land in the western edges of the Antelope Valley. The project would store State Water Project water supplies from the Agency and other banking participants during wet weather year periods when supplies exceed demands and would recover the water for use by the Agency and its partners during dry weather years when demands exceed suppliers and other times when there are disruptions to State Water Project Supplies. Implementation of this project will require the construction of monitoring and production water wells, turnouts of the CA Aqueduct, underground and above ground pipelines, recharge basins, and water storage and booster pump facilities.
