Document Description
SJWD would transfer up to 4,302 acre-feet of water that it will not otherwise deliver to its wholesale customer agencies Citrus Heights Water District and Fair Oaks Water District as a result of additional pumping and use of groundwater in those districts. The water thus made available for transfer is a portion of SJWD’s pre-1914 water rights water, which would be transferred to the Santa Clara Valley Water District and a consortium of State Water Contractors, including the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, Kern County Water Agency, Alameda County Water District, Napa County FC & WCD, Kings County Water District, Palmdale Water District, Dudley Ridge Water District, Zone 7 Water Agency, Central Coast Water Authority, and Antelope Valley-East Kern Water Agency, through State Water Project (SWP) facilities of the California Department of Water Resources (DWR). The project is proposed to be implemented, if approved, July through November of 2022. For more information concerning the project, see the Initial Study for the 2022 Temporary Water Transfer of Pre-1914 Water Rights Water to the Santa Clara Valley Water District and a Consortium of State Water Contractors (“Initial Study”), which, along with the proposed negative declaration, is available for review at www.sjwd.org, and at the SJWD offices.
