The Kern Westside Districts are proposing to purchase up to 11,000 AF of water from SCVWA. SCVWA has a May 22, 2007 agreement to purchase water from Buena Vista WSD ("BVWSD") and Rosedale-Rio Bravo WSD ("RRBWSD") as part of the BVWSD/RRBWSD Water Banking and Recovery Program that is deliverable to SCVWA via exchange for a portion of BVWSD and RRBWSD's KCWA State Water Project Table A water. Per said 2007 agreement, SCVWA would request BVWSD/RRBWSD to provide the water to SCVWA in the CA Aqueduct as KCWA SWP Table A water.
