Title:
Arvin Edison Water Storage District/Westside Mutual Water Company Exchange (2011-2016) EA and Supplemental EA
Site:
Summary:
Reclamation proposes to approve a water exchange program between Arvin Edison Water Storage District (AEWSD) and Westside Mutual Water Company (WMWD). The exchange program between AEWSD and WMWC would begin in 2011 and be in effect through the end of 2016 contract year or 50,000 AF, whichever comes first. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to allow AEWSD to regulate its highly variable CVP water supplies, conserve and minimize overdraft of the groundwater resources within its service area and to provide a means of storage for WMWCs SWP carryover water supply until needed, particularly during low or drought years. *************************************** In April 2012, Reclamation received a request from WWWD to add their member lands and water supplies in Westlands Water District to the Exchange Program.
