Document Description
Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) is a State Water Project (SWP) contractor as well as a Central Valley Project (CVP) contractor. SCVWD receives its SWP supplies from the Department of Water Resources of the State of California (DWR) through the South Bay Aqueduct (SBA). Furthermore, SCVWD receives its CVP water from the United States Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) from Turnout 59 in San Luis Reservoir through the CVP’s San Felipe Division facilities. In order to increase its flexibility during periods when the SBA is not operating at all or only operating at limited capacity, SCVWD is requesting of DWR to deliver its SWP water supplies to San Luis Reservoir and/or O’Neill Forebay for subsequent delivery by Reclamation to SCVWD’s service area via the CVP’s San Felipe Division facilities through December 31, 2024. SWPAO Agreements #15016 and #15016-A previously authorized these additional points of delivery through December 31, 2020.
