Cross Valley Contractors (CVC) Conversion of Water Supply Contracts and Renewal of Conveyance Contracts Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Document Description
The proposed Project includes two components for each CV Contractor: • The approval and execution of a contract with Reclamation that converts, pursuant to the WIIN Act, the CV Contractor’s existing water supply contract for CVP water to a repayment contract authorizing prepayment of outstanding CVP construction costs; and • The approval and execution of a contract with Reclamation and DWR that renews and updates the terms of an existing contract for the conveyance of the CV Contractor’s CVP water until 2035. The proposed conversion of the existing CVP contracts under the WIIN Act, and renewal and updating the conveyance provisions of the existing contracts into separate conveyance contracts, will allow the CV Contractors to continue receiving CVP water in the manner consistent with current and historical practices.

The Cross-Valley Canal (CVC) is a water conveyance facility in the southern San Joaquin Valley that extends from the California Aqueduct near Tupman, east to the Friant-Kern Canal (FKC) and beyond. The CVC can convey water to the CV Contractors’ turnouts along the FKC, on the east side of the San Joaquin Valley, or allow water to be delivered by exchange. The CV Contractors (LTRID, Pixley Irrigation District, Hills Valley Irrigation District, Tri Valley Water District, County of Tulare, County of Fresno, and Kern-Tulare Water District) are located within Fresno, Kings, Tulare, and Kern Counties.
