Document Description
This project involves an Agreement between Sacramento River Settlement Contractors (SRSC) Corporation, individual SRSCs, and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) to implement a drought mitigation, voluntary water conservation, and water purchase program. SRSC Corporation and individual SRSCs would enter into an Agreement with Reclamation to forego a larger percentage of their contract supply in specified drought years in two phases: Phase 1, 2025 to 2035, and Phase 2, 2036 to 2045. Reduced contract supply would be accomplished through various actions by SRSC including groundwater substitution, cropland idling and shifting, conservation, and through implementing drought-resiliency projects. By reducing the amount of water that is released from Shasta Lake and diverted by the SRSC, the project would consequently allow for more water to be available to Reclamation to manage its operation of the Central Valley Project. In addition, SRSC will engage in drought-resiliency projects to address potential agricultural loss due to reduced contract supply.
