Document Description
The Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD), in coordination with Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) and Desert Water Agency (DWA), has updated and consolidated the existing package of Exchange and Advance Delivery Agreements among the three agencies into a single amended and restated agreement. The Exchange and Advance Delivery Agreements provide the terms for exchanging and delivering CVWD's and DWA's State Water Project (SWP) water with an equivalent amount ofMWD's Colorado River water. An agreement, known as the Advance Delivery Agreement, allows MWD to pre-deliver CVWD's and DWA's SWP water prior to the Department of Water Resources making its Table A allocations. It was executed in 1984. The Advance Delivery Agreement allows MWD to deliver extra water above CVWD's and DWA's Table A obligations into the Indio subbasin in wet years, which builds up a water credit in the Advanced Delivery Account, and allows MWD to receive CVWD's and DWA's SWP water during dry years by deducting against the credit in the Advanced Delivery Account.
