Title:
Temporary Transfer of Water from the McConnell Foundation to Kanawha and Glide Water Districts in Contract Year 2014
Site:
Summary:
The Bureau of Reclamation proposes to approve a 1-year transfer of up to 5,100 acre-feet (AF) of Central Valley Project (Project) water from the McConnell Foundation (Foundation) to the Kanawha and Glide water districts (Districts) served by the Tehama-Colusa Canal. Water made available to the Districts could come from direct transfer from the Foundation or indirectly through the City of Redding’s water service contract, the Buckeye Contract (#14-06-200-5272A-LTR1), or a combination thereof. Water made available to the Foundation for transfer is based upon a pre-1914 right to divert water regardless of Central Valley Project allocations (see Contract No. 00-WC-20-1707). In the case of direct transfer, any quantity delivered would be subject to a reduction by a factor of 1.786 because this water would be used outside Shasta County (see Contract No. 00-WC-20-1707). In contrast, any Project water transferred through the Buckeye contract would not be subject to a reduction. The Project water to be transferred would originate at Trinity Lake, be diverted through Carr Tunnel into Whiskeytown Reservoir then through Spring Creek and Keswick power plants into the Sacramento River. This water, minus any potential conveyance loss, would be diverted at the screened Red Bluff Pump Plant (RBPP) into the TCC for delivery to the Districts between mileposts 45 and 58.
