The Bureau of Reclamation announces the availability of the Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Groundwater Banking Pilot Project of Central Valley Project Water from the City of Tracy to Semitropic Water Storage District (Pilot Project).
Reclamation proposes to approve a Pilot Project which includes the one-time banking of 1,000 acre-feet of City of Tracy (Tracy) 2006/2007 allocated Central Valley Project (CVP) water supply at Semitropic Water Storage District (Semitropic) and the recovery of 100 acre-feet of the banked CVP water within the 2007 water year.
