Project Details
Title: South Valley Water Bank Authority Pixley Groundwater Banking Project
Summary: The release of Restoration Flows would reduce annual surface water deliveries to Friant Division water contractors, potentially placing greater stress on the region's groundwater basins and the region's agricultural economy. The purpose of the proposed action is to contribute to achieving the Settlement Water Management Goal by reducing, avoiding, or offsetting the quantity of expected water supply impacts to Friant Division long-term contractors caused by the release of Restoration Flows by facilitating groundwater banking and recharge activities by local districts. Original Draft EA/IS released for public review in 2016. The project and draft 2016 EA/IS have been modified due to comments received on the draft. A revised draft EA/IS has been released for public review on April 17, 2017.
