The purpose of the proposed Program is to allow the annual transfer and/or exchange of CVP water from the Exchange Contractors to continue after February 28, 2014 (water year 2013), to consider alternatives of additional conservation water transfers under specified conditions, and to provide for the alternative of delivery of transfer water to additional areas and contractors no included in the 10-year program EIS/EIR. The action/project alternatives to be evaluated in the EIS/EIR involve multiple sources of developed water and multiple users of that water. The Exchange Contractors proposed to develop water from a conservation/tailwater recovery program and crop idling/temporary land fallowing. 6/20/2011
