Document Description
The CBP was submitted for Proposition 1 – Water Storage Investment Program (WSIP) funding and was awarded $206.9M in conditional funding in July 2018. Under the WSIP, the CBP is proposed to be a 25-year conjunctive use project that proposes to use advanced water purification to treat and store up to 15,000 acre-feet-per-year (AFY) of recycled water in the Chino Basin and extract the water during call years, which will likely be in dry seasons. The CBP would increase additional available groundwater supplies in the adjudicated Chino Basin through increased water recycling that would result from operation of a new AWPF and through groundwater storage by operation of new injection wells. The CBP would then dedicate a commensurate amount of water generated by the Advanced Water Purification Facility (AWPF) for Chino Basin use to provide for an exchange of State Water Project supplies in Lake Oroville in northern California that would otherwise be delivered to southern California. The additional Lake Oroville water would subsequently be released in the form of pulse flows in the Feather River to improve habitat conditions for native salmonids and achieve environmental benefits. In order to accomplish the water exchange outlined above, the CBP would install new water and wastewater type infrastructure within the Chino Basin, and would ultimately result in additional groundwater supply therein.
