The total banking capacity of the MID WSEP is 250,000 acre-feet. Portions of the 24.2 Canal, Section 8 Canal, Main Number 1 Canal, Cottonwood Creek, and Gravelly Ford Canal would be enlarged, extended, or improved. The MID WSEP would be completed in two phases. Phase 1 would involve recharge-related facilities only. Phase 2 would involve supplemental recharge facilities and facilities for recovery of banked water. The Final EIS addresses both phases.

overdraft, MID proposes to implement the WSEP. MID would bank CVP water

    A Notice of Availability announcing the release of the Draft EIS 
was published in the Federal Register on July 27, 2009 (74 FR 37051). 
The written comment period on the Draft EIS ended September 25, 2009. 
The Final EIS contains responses to all comments received and reflects 
comments and any additional information received during the review

    The Draft EIS considered the direct, indirect, and cumulative 
effects on the physical, natural, and human environment that may result 
from the construction and operation of a water bank on Madera Ranch.
    The Draft EIS addressed potentially significant environmental 
issues and recommends adequate and feasible mitigation measures to 
reduce or eliminate significant environmental impacts. The Draft EIS 
examined three banking alternatives as well as the no action 
alternative. A public meeting was held on August 27, 2009, in Madera, 
California.
    The Final EIS includes a new alternative that was developed as a 
result of comments received on the Draft EIS. This alternative (Reduced 
Alternative B) represents a scaled-back version of Alternative B that 
uses fewer swales to minimize effects to vernal pools and limits the 
number of recharge basins to the number needed for the project to be 
practicable.
