Title:
Five-year Warren Act Contracts for Banta-Carbona Irrigation District, Byron-Bethany Irrigation District, Patterson Irrigation District, and West Stanislaus Irrigation District EA and Supplemental EAs
Site:
Summary:
Reclamation proposes to issue five-year temporary Warren Act contracts in 2010 for the storage and conveyance of non-CVP water in the DMC for up to 10,000 AF/year through contract water year 2015. All water would be moved before the end of the five-year period (contract year ending February 28, 2016). Conveyance of non-CVP water under a Warren Act contract would be subject to available capacity. In April 2012, Reclamation received a request from Byron Bethany ID to approve delivery of up to 5,000 AFY of their pre-1914 water rights water (non-CVP water), previously analyzed in the 2010 EA, to Westlands WD via the San Luis Canal. Delivery of BBID’s non-CVP water to WWD will continue through February 28, 2016, consistent with the 2010 EA and BBID’s current Warren Act Contract. Reclamation added Del Puerto WD as an additional point of delivery in July 2012. Up to 10,000 AFY could be delivered from PID to Del Puerto WD.
