Document Description
The Rosedale-Rio Bravo Water Storage District and Irvine Ranch Water District have formed the Groundwater Banking Joint Powers Authority (Authority) for the purpose of developing, constructing and operating the Kern Fan Groundwater Storage Project. The proposed project would allow the Authority to more effectively manage sources of water supply available to Rosedale and IRWD by using available underground storage in the local San Joaquin Valley Groundwater Basin. To do that, the Authority would develop water recharge and recovery facilities in the Kern Fan area of Kern County, California. The proposed project would recharge, store, recover and deliver: State Water Project (SWP) water, including Article 21 water; Central Valley Project (CVP) water, including Section 215 water; Kern River water available to the Authority through agreement(s) with existing right holders; and water from other sources, when available.
