This Mitigated Negative Declaration and EA/IS analyze environmental impacts of proposed water transfers from willing sellers to buyers in the Sacramento Valley to help address water shortages. This environmental document includes transfers of Central Valley Project (CVP) water from entities in northern California to participating members of the Tehama-Colusa Canal Authority. The water would be made available for transfer through a combination of cropland idling and groundwater substitution. The transfers could originate in Colusa, Glenn, Sacramento, Shasta, Sutter, Tehama, or Yolo counties. The transfer buyers could be in Colusa, Glenn, Tehama, or Yolo counties.
