Document Description
The Project involves the State Water Resources Control Board's (State Water Board) approval of petitions for change and petitions for extension of time filed by Tahoe City PUD. Tahoe City PUD and its customers are the beneficiaries of the Project. The water rights affected are permits 13531, 14331, 14334, 14337, 14572, 14746, and 14931. Tahoe City PUD has filed a petition for change and a petition for extension of time for each permit. The petitions for change request changes to the points of diversion and place's of use of each permit, and changes to the purposes of use of five of the permits. There are existing diversion facilities at the five proposed points of-diversion, four of which are currently in use and the fifth of which is not currently in use but has previously been in use. The petitions- for extensions of time request that the date of completion of beneficial use of water under the permits be extended to a date twenty-five years from the date of the State Water Board's Order approving the petitions, however the Stale. Water Board has determined that an extension of time to December 31, 2044 is appropriate. The purposes of the Project are to reconcile the permit terms with Tahoe City PUD's actual uses and to provide Tahoe City PUD with additional time to put water to beneficial use under the permits.
