MWA has a portion of its Article 56 Carryover Water available for delivery to Zone 7 in 2021. Under this agreement, MWA will make available 3,600 AF of MWA’s Article 56 Carryover Water for transfer to Zone 7 in 2021. Water will be delivered using existing SWP facilities, and in a manner similar to other deliveries from the SWP.
