Buena Vista will transfer 6,000 AF of water stored in San Luis Reservoir from the above average hydro-logic conditions that existed in 2017. The transferred water would be beneficially used by agricultural crops. No additional groundwater will be pumped.
This transfer only involves the amount of water that would have been consumptively used via deep wells for the 2018 water year. It is not precedent setting and does not injure any legal user of water. Additionally, the water is stored in San Luis Reservoir and will not affect fish, wildlife, or other instream beneficial use.
