Document Description
In the effort to fund future local water reliability projects, PWD has negotiated a multi-year transfer of a portion of its annual allocation of SWP Table A water above its total annual water demand to the following five water districts: Berrenda Mesa Water District, Belridge Water Storage District, Lost Hills Water District, Wheeler Ridge–Maricopa Water Storage District, and Dudley Ridge Water District, collectively referred to as the Westside Districts. The water transfer (Proposed Project) would be based on PWD transferring a minimum quantity of SWP Table A water to the Westside Districts based on the annual SWP allocations from Revised 2010 DWR and additional SWP Table A water to the Westside Districts if PWD has additional SWP Table A water to transfer and Westside Districts request delivery of all or a portion of the additional water. The Proposed Project could commence as early as 2021 after CEQA has been complied with, an agreement between PWD and the Westside Districts has been executed, and all other regulatory approvals have been obtained; however, with the current SWP allocation at 5 percent, it is unlikely that any of PWD’s SWP water would be transferred in 2021. The Proposed Project would terminate at the end of 2035. The Proposed Project would use existing facilities to transfer water to existing service areas and would not construct new or alter existing facilities or result in ground disturbance.
