Title:
Buena Vista Water Storage District Water Use and Irrigation Efficiency Project
Site:
Summary:
Buena Vista Water Storage District (BVWSD) applied for a WaterSMART grant when Reclamation announced Funding Opportunity Announcement No. R11AF20006 to help fund their Water Use and Irrigation Efficiency Project (Project). Building off past effective water conservation practices, the Project generally consists of site-specific improvements installing metered turnouts, automated control structures, variable frequency drives, and flow meters. The Project area includes BVWSD’s service area and the Tule Elk State Natural Reserve in Kern County, California. In order to move forward with their Project, BVWSD needs help funding construction, installation, and furnishing of equipment and related appurtenances. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to assist BVWSD in reducing seepage and evaporation losses, and improving their overall water-use efficiency through site-specific distribution system improvements.
