Approval of a contract for project water service and facilities repayment ("Repayment Contract") between San Juan Water District and the United States
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Project Applicant
San Juan Water District

Document Description
The project will benefit the wholesale and retail customers of the District. The Repayment Contract is a permanent contract that will restate the existing Long-Term Water Service Contract, which would require renewal after February 28, 2045. By converting the Water Service Contract to a Repayment Contract, the District will save the time and costs associated with renewing the water service contract. The conversion will also allow the District to take advantage of a discount that the WIIN Act authorized for converting contractors, which will reduce the amount charged to the District for its share of the capital costs of constructing the Central Valley Project. The Repayment Contract contains the same substantive terms and elements as the existing Water Service Contract, including the amount of CVP water to be supplied, the shortage provisions of Reclamation's Municipal and Industrial Shortage Policy for dry or drought conditions, the requirements related to water reporting and scheduling, and the terms of payment for water delivered to the District. The substantive terms of the Repayment Contract are the same as they were in the existing Water Service Contract because the WIIN Act directed Reclamation to convert the contracts without changing the substantive terms.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
§21065; §15060{c); §15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The District's conversion from a water service contract to a Repayment Contract does not increase the amount of water the District receives, nor does it change any water project operations or deliveries. This is merely a legal and financial transaction that will not cause any physical impact on the environment. Consequently, approval of this Repayment Contract does not trigger environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act.
