Document Description
The proposed project would change the point of diversion and place of use for the water rights associated with the parcels on the project site. RRBWSD proposes to reduce the diversion of water on the project site and convert the irrigated fields to lower water use crops or allow the fields to return to their native vegetative state. RRBWSD would then allow the water that would have been diverted on the project site to remain in the South Fork of the Kern River and flow downstream. This would result in a net increase in flows within the South Fork of the Kern River and the Isabella Reservoir where the water would be released through the Isabella Dam and flow downstream in the lower Kern River until the water is diverted at the RRBWSD diversion point within the San Joaquin Valley floor.
