The Bureau of Reclamation has released the draft environmental documents for approval of annual transfers of up to 20,500 acre-feet of Central Valley Project water from the Central California Irrigation District to the San Luis, Panoche, Del Puerto and Westlands Water Districts and up to 5,000 acre-feet of CVP water from the Firebaugh Canal Water District to the San Luis Water District or Westlands Water District.
Following potential execution of the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and approval by the Contracting Officer, the proposed transfers would allow water districts and landowners flexibility to manage limited water supplies from July 2012 through December 2012 and April 2013 through December 2013.
The Draft Environmental Assessments and FONSI were prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act and are available at http://www.usbr.gov/mp/nepa/nepa_projdetails.cfm?Project_ID=10110. If you encounter problems accessing the documents online, please call 916-978-5100 (TTY 916-978-5608) or email email@example.com.
Written comments on the Draft EA/FONSI for the proposed actions must be received by close of business Thursday, July 5, 2012.
