Title
Palmdale Water District and Littlerock Creek Irrigation District Multi-Year Water Transfer Project.
Description
PWD and LCID seek to enter into a mutually beneficial water transfer of a portion of LCID’s SWP annual Table A water. In this Project, LCID would transfer its portion of SWP annual Table A water to PWD. PWD would receive an amount not less than 75 percent and not more than 100 percent of LCID’s annual Table A allocation, up to a maximum of 2,300-acre feet. In addition, LCID has an annual option to retain up to 25% of its Table A water. The annual transfer would take place from the date that the agreement is fully executed, until December 31, 2035. The parties may mutually revise the agreement in the years 2025 and/or 2030. All water transferred from LCID to PWD would use existing conveyance infrastructure and would not require any new construction. The PWD turnout at milepost 346.98 would be utilized for the transfer of water. This is an existing turnout and no additional turnout would be required to move LCID’s SWP water from the SWP facilities to PWD. The water transferred to PWD would be used to increase the water supply reliability within PWD’s service area. Water received through this transfer would primarily be used for water production at the PWD treatment plant. Implementation of the Project does not include the construction of any new facilities, the modification of existing SWP facilities, or any water supply conveyance or treatment facilities in LCID’s or PWD’s service areas and will not require modification to the operation of any such facilities. The total amount of SWP water available for allocation to all Contractors in any year would not change. The total amount of SWP water pumped by DWR from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta (Delta) would not change. The SWP, Water Supply Contracts, Table A amount for LCID and PWD or any other SWP contractor would not change.
