Document Description
The proposed project will involve the construction and operation of four water recovery wells, approximately 0.2 miles of two-way 48" pipeline, and approximately 1.3 miles of collection pipelines ranging from 12" to 24". The purpose of the proposed project is to bank water that is periodically available above current needs from the Friant Division of the Central Valley Project (Friant), and to make that water available to lawful recipients during times when it is needed. The project will incorporate 69 acres of existing recharge basin and one existing irrigation well into project operations. The project does not entail any modifications to the Friant Kern Canal (FKC) and does not include pump-in of recovered water into the FKC.
