Document Description
The Sutter Extension Water District (SEWD) proposes to sell up to 16,292 acre-feet (AF) of water to the participating member districts of the State Water Project Contractors, Incorporated or other South of Delta purchasers, including one or more Central Valley Project contractors (Buyers) during the 2021 irrigation season. SEWD proposes to make water available by idling cropland (i.e., non-irrigation of farmland by voluntary participants) and through groundwater substitution. Purchase of the water would lessen potential water supply shortages that the Buyers may occur as a result of dry hydrologic conditions and regulatory restrictions on the pumping in the Delta. Under the proposed project, water made available within the boundaries of SEWD could then be retained and stored in Lake Oroville by the Department of Water Resources for delivery.
