- Mono Basin Water Rights Licenses Project
- LADWP proposes to implement Water Rights Licenses 10191 and 10192 as “living licenses” that include stream flow management and modification of the Grant Lake Reservoir spillway to allow for controlled releases of larger volumes of water from the reservoir during wetter time periods under the guidance of the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB). The proposed Stream Ecosystem Flow (SEF) regime follows the recommendations provided in the 2010 Mono Basin Stream Restoration and Monitoring Program: Synthesis of Instream Flow Recommendations summarizing the 12-year monitoring program (Synthesis Report). The SEFs were developed by the SWRCB-appointed stream scientists after 12 years of study and are intended to achieve goals of “functional and self-sustaining stream systems with healthy riparian ecosystem components” and “trout in good condition” for Rush Creek and Lee Vining Creek.
