Transfer of Article 56 Carryover Water from Mojave Water Agency to County of Kings
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
MWA and County are SWP Contractors that receive imported water deliveries from the SWP; each has a water supply contract with DWR for water from the SWP. Given the 2021 SWP allocation of only 5% and an initial 2022 SWP allocation of only minimum human health and safety deliveries, County is anticipating the need of additional surface water in 2022 to meet its projected demands. MWA has a portion of its Article 56 Carryover Water available for transfer to County for delivery to Kettleman City, a disadvantaged community, in 2022. Under this agreement, MWA will make available 235 acre-feet of MWA’s Article 56 Carryover Water for transfer to County in 2022. Water will be delivered using existing SWP facilities, and in a manner similar to other deliveries from the SWP
