Background The proposed project will install up to 20 groundwater wells in the Bunker Hill Groundwater Basin, San Bernardino County, California. Existing recharge basins will be used to store imported water and local Santa Ana River flows in the Bunker Hill Groundwater Basin when supplies are available.

The first phase of the project will also provide access to groundwater from the Chino Basin in San Bernardino County. The currently proposed RCF alignment is a modification to a project previously evaluated by Western in 2005 and revised in 2008.

Western issued a Notice of Preparation of a draft Supplemental Program EIR on July 30, 2008, to evaluate a change in the pipeline alignment. Reclamation issued a Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement on February 24, 2010 (75 FR 8395). The new alignment will not change the number of wells or the Bunker Hill groundwater extraction described in the 2005 PEIR, but will now allow Western to access available groundwater from existing desalter facilities in Chino Basin under an approved Optimum Basin Management Plan.

The refined alignment for Reaches E, F, and G will remain consistent with the approvals in the 2008 EIR.

Authority

    This notice is provided pursuant to NEPA, 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(c), and 
Department of the Interior regulations for the implementation of NEPA, 
43 CFR Part 46.
    Section 9112 of the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 
(Public Law 111-11, 123 Stat. 1318), signed by the President on March 
30, 2009, authorizes the Secretary of the Interior, in cooperation with 
Western, to participate in the planning, design, and construction of 
the Riverside-Corona Feeder Project including: (i) 20 groundwater 
wells; (ii) groundwater treatment facilities; (iii) water storage and 
pumping facilities; and (iv) 28 miles of pipeline in San Bernardino and 
Riverside Counties in the State of California.

Background

    The proposed project will install up to 20 groundwater wells in the 
Bunker Hill Groundwater Basin, San Bernardino County, California. 
Existing recharge basins will be used to store imported water and local 
Santa Ana River flows in the Bunker Hill Groundwater Basin when 
supplies are available. The stored groundwater will be extracted later 
for delivery to communities in Western's service area in Riverside 
County, California, via 28 miles of pipeline ranging in diameter up to 
78 inches, capable of delivering up to 40,000 acre-feet per year of 
groundwater at 100 cubic feet per second. The first phase of the 
project will also provide access to groundwater from the Chino Basin in 
San Bernardino County.
    The currently proposed RCF alignment is a modification to a project 
previously evaluated by Western in 2005 and revised in 2008. The 
original project included eight segments, Reaches A through H, analyzed 
in the Programmatic Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) for the 
Riverside-Corona Feeder, California State Clearinghouse (SCH) No. 
2003031121, certified by Western on May 18, 2005. Reaches E, F, and G 
were refined slightly in 2007 and evaluated in the Environmental Impact 
Report for the La Sierra Avenue Water Transmission Pipeline Project 
(SCH No. 2006101152), certified by Western on February 20, 2008. 
Western issued a Notice of Preparation of a draft Supplemental Program 
EIR on July 30, 2008, to evaluate a change in the pipeline alignment. 
Reclamation issued a Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental 
Impact Statement on February 24, 2010 (75 FR 8395).
    The new alignment will not change the number of wells or the Bunker 
Hill groundwater extraction described in the 2005 PEIR, but will now 
allow Western to access available groundwater from existing desalter 
facilities in Chino Basin under an approved Optimum Basin Management

remaining as proposed in the original project. The refined alignment 
for Reaches E, F, and G will remain consistent with the approvals in 
the 2008 EIR.
    Additional connection facilities were added to the project 
including a new well field for five (5) of the 20 wells, two (2) 
additional pump stations, one (1) five-million gallon reservoir, and 
connecting pipelines.
    Reclamation is incorporating the two previous CEQA Environmental
