Project Details
Title: North Sonoma County Agricultural Reuse Project (Title XVI), EIR/EIS
Summary: The Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act, 2002, included $500,000 for a feasibility study of the proposed project. In September 2002, a Cooperative Agreement was executed with the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA)and Reclamation to initiate the study. Study authority is Public Law 102-575, Title XVI, Section 1604, as amended (the Reclamation Wastewater and Groundwater Study and Facilities Act, October 30, 1992). The proposed Project is located in Sonoma County, in the vicinity of Santa Rosa, California. The SCWA, in its continuing efforts to develop a recycled water supply for agriculture water users, is investigation opportunities for recycled water supply, storage, and distribution in the Alexander, Russian River, and Dry Creek Valleys (North Sonoma County area). The recycled water would be stored and conveyed to the proposed area for use as irrigation water on up to 25,000 acres of agricultural lands (vineyards). The proposed water recycling project would eliminate the diversion of 10,000 acre-feet of Russian River water for recycled wastewater, thereby leaving more flows in the Russina River during the summer months for anadromous fish restoration.
