Long-Term Water Transfer

Non-interactive graphic space holderThe Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the San Luis & Delta- Mendota Water Authority propose to prepare a joint EIS/EIR to analyze the effects of water transfers from water agencies in northern California to water agencies south of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta (Delta) and in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Non-interactive graphic space holderThe EIS/EIR will address transfers of Central Valley Project (CVP) and non-CVP water supplies that require use of CVP or State Water Project (SWP) facilities to convey the transferred water. Water transfers would occur through various methods, including, but not limited to, groundwater substitution and cropland idling, and would include individual and multiyear transfers from 2015 through 2024.

Non-interactive graphic space holder Public Draft EIS/EIR Released on September 30, 2014. Comments are due December 1, 2014.
