Reclamation actions associated with the Proposed Action are agreeing to a change in point of diversion of Central Valley Project (CVP) water under Contract No. I75r–3401A–LTR1 and petitioning the California State Water Resources Control Board for necessary water right changes regarding point of diversion. Through the Proposed Action, CCWD is seeking to relocate some of its diversions to a Delta location with better water quality and would not seek to increase its water rights, CVP contract amounts, or permitted Los Vaqueros Reservoir filling rates.
