Title:
Temporary Transfer of CVP Water from the City of Redding to the Bella Vista Water District in 2014
Site:
Summary:
The Bureau of Reclamation proposes to approve a 1-year transfer of up to 1,200 acre-feet (AF) of Central Valley Project (Project) water from the City of Redding (City) under Federal Contract No. 14-06-200-2871A-R-1 to the Bella Vista Water District (District). Earlier than normal groundwater pumping and corresponding curtailment of surface water production by the City allowed the City to realize a surplus of Project water available for transfer in 2014. The District also is a Project water service contractor in the same area of origin as the City and therefore, the transfer will be conducted in accordance with Section 3405(a)(1)(M) of the Central Valley Project Improvement Act (CVPIA). The request from the District to transfer water stems from the projected insufficient water supply to meet current year municipal and industrial needs of the District in spite of implementing conservation measures.
