- 2002 Groundwater Transfer Program
- 2002 Groundwater Transfer Program. BVWSD's 2002 Groundwater Transfer Program (Program) involves the exchange of up to 25,000 AF of BVWSD's entitlement to State Water Project (SWP) water for pumping and local use of the equivalent quantity of recharged 1995-99 SWP water or high-flow Kern River water from wells owned and operated by BVWSD and local landowners. The District received and recharged approximately 102,000 acre feet of SWP water from 1995-1999. Assuming that SWP water banked during such years is an approved Environmental Water Account (EWA) water supply by the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and the State Water Contractors, BVWSD proposes using up to 25,000 acre feet of this supply for purposes of its 2002 water transfer. The exchanged SWP water will be made available for sale to EWA and to other water users.
