Under the provisions of the Sacramento River Water Rights Settlement Contract (SRSC) between Princeton-Codora-Glenn Irrigation District (PCGID) and the Bureau of Reclamation, PCGID has a supply of Central Valley Project (CVP) water available in 2020, in a total quantity of 15,000 acre-feet. That exceeds the 2020 project water needs of PCGID’s water users. The SRSC and section 3405(a)(1)(M) of the CVP Improvement Act (CVPIA) authorize the transfer of project water to other CVP Contractors within a county, watershed or other area of origin. The Orland-Artois Water District(OAWD) CVP Water Service Contract acknowledges the fact that OAWD is within a county, watershed or other area of origin. Under the contract, PCGID can transfer water, and a CVP contractor can use this supply to supplement its own 2020 CVP water allocation. Even with its full allocation of CVP water in 2020, OAWD water users may still have to pump groundwater to supplement the district supply. PCGID’s transferred water could be used in lieu of groundwater, thereby replenishing the aquifers, and so minimize and mitigate the impacts of the past years severe drought conditions. Instead of being diverted at PCGID’s pumping plant on the Sacramento River, the water would be diverted at the Red Bluff Pumping Plant, and delivered to OAWD through the Tehama-Colusa Canal. No land in PCGID will be idled nor will any additional groundwater be pumped in PCGID as a result of the transfer. OAWD water users will use the water to irrigate crops that otherwise would be irrigated with groundwater.
