Document Description
AVEK (lead agency) approved the development and operation of a groundwater bank on approximately 1,500 acres at the western edges of the Antelope Valley. The project would store State Water Project (SWP) water during wet weather years when supplies exceed demands, and would recover the water during dry weather years when demands exceed supplies or at other times when there are disruptions to SWP supplies. Implementation of this project will require the construction of monitoring and production water wells, turnouts off of the California Aqueduct, underground and above ground pipelines, recharge basins, and water storage and booster pump facilities. Metropolitan (responsible agency) would pay AVEK for the capital costs for construction of monitoring and production wells, turnouts from the California Aqueduct, underground and aboveground pipelines, recharge basins, water storage, and booster pump facilities.
