Proposal for Improved CVP/SWP Integrated Operations


Proposal for Improved CVP/SWP Integrated Operations

  • DWR, USBR, and CVP/SWP water contractors met in mid-July and developed a proposal for improved integration of the two projects

  • This proposal defines the context of discussions with DFG, USFWS, NOAA Fisheries, Bay-Delta Authority, and interested stakeholders regarding the components of the proposal and the characteristics of a long-term EWA.


Proposal for Improved CVP/SWP Integrated Operations

Meeting necessary to resolve issues:

  • Schedule of the CVP/SWP Operations Criteria and Plan (OCAP)

  • Support for continuation of the EWA

  • Accounting under the Coordinated Operation Agreement (COA)

  • Sharing of planned increased export capability (8500)

  • Operation of DMC/CA Intertie


Proposal for Improved CVP/SWP Integrated Operations

Components of the Proposal

Conveyance

  • SWP conveys up to 100,000 af of Level 2 waterfowl refuge supply

    CVP Storage Accounting

  • Up to 75,000 af of CVP north-of-Delta water supply used to meet SWP Delta water quality/flow requirements


Proposal for Improved CVP/SWP Integrated Operations

Components of the Proposal (con’t)

Environmental Water Account

  • Fully support EWA continuation

  • Commit to developing a long-term EWA with DFG, USFWA, and NOAA Fisheries having adequate assets, operational flexibility, and financing

    ESA Commitments

  • Multi-year, multi-species ESA commitment in exchange for long-term EWA asset commitments.


Proposal for Improved CVP/SWP Integrated Operations

Components of the Proposal (con’t)

CVP/SWP Operations Criteria and Plan (OCAP)

  • Include Freeport Regional Water Project, SDIP (8500), the DMC/CA Intertie, a long-term EWA, and the other components of the integration proposal.

  • The associated Biological Opinion to cover these projects, and be considered a long-term opinion

Components of the Proposal (con’t)

Delta Water Quality

  • Implemented within a balanced CALFED Program, which includes projects to improve water quality

    Upstream Reservoir Coordination

  • SWP may borrow storage in CVP reservoirs for greater certainty in delivery allocation early in the year.

Components of the Proposal (con’t)

San Luis Reservoir Coordination

  • DWR develops a program to assure SLR storage does not drop below 200,000 af above dead storage.

  • Program increases certainty of CVP delivery allocation early in the year.

    Storage for Water Transfers

  • USBR stores for SWP contractors water obtained through transfer agreements. If reservoir enters flood control operations, stored transfer water first to spill.

Components of the Proposal (con’t)

Operational Implementation Process

  • Steps to improve coordination of projects to increase allocations earlier in the water year.

    COA Accounting Issues

  • Agreement on accounting for new facilities/agreements (North Bay Aqueduct, Freeport Regional Water Project, SDIP, DMC/CA Intertie)

Next steps

  • Define process for stakeholder involvement

  • Define the characteristics of a long-term EWA

  • Refine schedules of Integrated Key Milestones
