- Sutter Extension Water District 2020 Water Transfer Program
- The Sutter Extension Water District (SEWD) proposes to sell up to 16,843 acre-feet (AF) of water to the participating member districts of the State Water Project Contractors, Incorporated or other South of Delta purchasers, including one or more Central Valley Project contractors (Buyers) during the 2020 irrigation season. As a willing seller, SEWD would make up to 16,843 AF of water available to Buyers by idling cropland (i.e., non-irrigation of farmland by voluntary participants) and through groundwater substitution (i.e., using groundwater supplies instead of surface water supplies). SEWD's proposed transfer will comply with the current draft Technical Information for Preparing Water Transfer Proposals dated December 2019 (Draft Technical Information), prepared by the Department of Water Resources and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation).
