Document Description
EID proposes to transfer water to the federal and/or state water contractors (Buyers) during summer and fall 2020. EID would make the water available through re-operations of three EID reservoirs to release water otherwise planned to be consumed by EID customers in 2020 and/or stored within the EID network of reservoirs. The involved reservoirs and rivers/creeks would all operate consistent with their historic flow and release schedules, and would meet all applicable rules and requirements, including but not limited to lake level and minimum streamflow requirements. The proposed 8,000-AF transfer quantity would consist of releases from Weber Reservoir (up to 850 AF) that would otherwise remain in Weber Reservoir and releases from Caples/Silver lakes (up to 8,000 AF) that would otherwise be added to storage in Jenkinson Lake or used directly to meet summer/fall 2020 demands that would instead be met with water previously stored in Jenkinson Lake. Because the total potential quantity available from the three reservoirs (8,000 AF from Caples and Silver lakes plus 850 AF from Weber Reservoir) exceeds the proposed maximum transfer volume (up to 8,000 AF), EID would have flexibility to adjust operations at any of the reservoirs.
