Document Description
The Dudley Ridge Water District proposes to adopt and implement the provisions of its 2020 Agricultural Water Management Plan. In the Plan, the District identified the need to improve the process for approving water transfers and exchanges among State Water Project (SWP or Project) contractors. As part of DRWD's review of the Plan along with one of the water management strategies identified in the Plan (i.e., streamlining the DWR approval process for water transfer water requests}, DRWD is subjecting the Plan and the water transfers, exchanges, and banking operations described in the Plan to CEQA review.
