The Bureau of Reclamation has made available for public review and comment a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the South San Joaquin Irrigation District (District) Irrigation Enhancement, a WaterSMART Grant Project.

The system would consist of 12.6 miles of underground, pressurized polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipeline, along with two storage basins with a total capacity of approximately 80 acre-feet of water. Each basin would be equipped with a pump station and a groundwater well to provide an alternative water supply in dry years.
