SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Bureau of Reclamation today released the final environmental documents for the transfer of Central Valley Project water by CVP contractors located north of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The water may be purchased by up to 24 entities in the San Joaquin and Santa Clara Valleys, including up to 20 San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority member agencies.
The proposed action includes groundwater substitution and land idling/crop shifting transfers in 2014 that require Reclamation’s approval. The transfers involve Base Supply and/or Project Water from 15 entities with Sacramento River Settlement Contracts located north of the Delta; a total of up to 175,226 acre-feet of water could be made available for transfer.
