Document Description
PWD and LCID seek to enter into a mutually beneficial water transfer of a portion of LCID’s SWP annual Table A water. In this Project, LCID would transfer its portion of SWP annual Table A water to PWD. PWD would receive an amount not less than 75 percent and not more than 100 percent of LCID’s annual Table A allocation, up to a maximum of 2,300-acre feet. In addition, LCID has an annual option to retain up to 25% of its Table A water. The annual transfer would take place from the date that the agreement is fully executed, until December 31, 2035. The parties may mutually revise the agreement in the years 2025 and/or 2030. All water transferred from LCID to PWD would use existing conveyance infrastructure and would not require any new construction. The water transferred to PWD would be used to increase the water supply reliability within PWD’s service area. Implementation of the Project does not include the construction of any new facilities, the modification of existing SWP facilities, or any water supply conveyance or treatment facilities in LCID’s or PWD’s service areas and will not require modification to the operation of any such facilities. The total amount of SWP water available for allocation in any year would not change.
