The Los Vaqueros Reservoir Expansion Project Draft EIS/EIR evaluates expanding the existing Los Vaqueros Reservoir and conveyance facilities. The project objectives consist of: (1) Developing water supplies for environmental water management that supports fish protection, habitat management, and other environmental water needs; (2) increasing water supply reliability for water providers within the San Francisco Bay Area, to help meet municipal and industrial water demands during drought periods and emergencies or to address shortages due to regulatory and environmental restrictions; and (3) improving the quality of water deliveries to municipal and industrial customers in the San Francisco Bay Area, without impairing the project’s ability to meet the environmental and water supply reliability objectives stated above. One of the five potential surface storage projects described in the CALFED Bay-Delta Program’s long-term plan is the expansion of the existing Los Vaqueros Reservoir, an existing 100,000 acre-foot off-stream surface storage facility, located in Contra Costa County, California. The existing facility is owned and operated by the CCWD. The primary study area includes the Los Vaqueros Reservoir watershed and associated dam and reservoir facilities, which are situated in the coastal foothills west of the Delta and east of the Bay Area, the central and south Delta, and service areas of Bay Area water agencies. The Bay Area water agencies affected include CCWD, Alameda County Water District, Santa Clara Valley Water District, and Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District—Zone 7. Due to the project influence on other programs and projects, an extended study area is defined to include the service areas of the San Francisco Public Utility Commission and the Central Valley of California. Reclamation was authorized in Public Law 108–7 (Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2003) to conduct a feasibilitylevel investigation of the potential expansion of Los Vaqueros Reservoir. Planning studies have focused on identifying water resources problems, needs, and opportunities in the primary study area; developing a set of planning objectives; and formulating alternatives.
