In exchange for such service, the District agreed to repay all associated SWP capital and operating costs to DWR. Between 1984 and 1988, each member, including Carpinteria Valley water District, entered into an agreement with the District, through which each member obtained contractual rights to receive water from the SWP (Water Supply Retention Agreements) To authorize CCWA to agree to the assignment, the project involves the following approvals by Carpinteria Valley water District.
