NOE - Notice of Exemption
The proposed project is to deliver up to 1,000 acre-feet of Santa Barbara's approved 2017 SWP Table A water for storage in Strand Ranch on behalf of MWDSC by December 31, 2017 rather than directly from the Delta to MWDSC's service area. In exchange, MWDSC will return to Santa Barbara one-half of the total amount delivered to Strand Ranch, less 15% losses, of its future approved SWP Table A water by December 31, 2023. DWR, KCWA, and MWDSC are concurrently entering into a change in point of delivery agreement to allow the storage in Strand Ranch and future return of the water to MWDSC (SWPAO#17002).
a. The proposed project is a water management operation using only existing facilities for the exchange of water from one SWP contractor to another SWP contractor.
b. The limited term exchange will not support new development or a change in land use
c. The exchange is entirely within the SWP place of use.
