Document Description
Madera Water District (MWD) proposes to develop a project that would allow water from Madera Irrigation District (MID) or other sources to be brought into MWD through Madera Lake. Madera Lake is supplied by an existing turnout off the Fresno River which is fed by the upstream watershed regulated by Hidden Dam on Hensley Lake and from water from the Madera Canal. Water supplies could be from the Central Valley Project Friant Division, Fresno River, or pre-1914 supplies. The Project entails the installation of a 26 to 30-inch steel siphon in Madera Lake, booster pumps and pipeline to obtain a flowrate of up to 8,000 gpm from Madera Lake, with up to 6,000 gpm delivered into Madera Water District and up to 2,000 gpm delivered to the neighboring property from outside water supplies.
