Regional Water Management Plan for the Sacramento River Contractors
The Regional Water Management Plan for the Sacramento River Contractors (Regional Plan) is available for review. Participating Contractors include: Anderson-Cottonwood Irrigation District Meridian Farms Water Company Glenn-Colusa Irrigation District Sutter Mutual Water Company Provident Irrigation District Pelger Mutual Water Company Princeton-Codora-Glenn Irrigation District Natomas Central Mutual Water Company Reclamation District No. 108 Reclamation District No. 1004 Under the authority of the Central Valley Project Improvement Act of 1992 (CVPIA) and the Reclamation Reform Act of 1982, the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) developed and published the Regional Criteria for Evaluating Water Management Plans for the Sacramento River Contractors (Regional Criteria) in 2004. The development and implementation of the Regional Criteria for the Sacramento Valley was an alternative pilot program to the current Standard Criteria for Evaluating Water Management Plans (Standard Criteria), as stated in the Water Conservation Administrative Proposal dated March 20, 1997. If the Contracting Officer deems this pilot program to be unsuccessful, the Regional Criteria will be discontinued. All subsequent Plans would then be evaluated under the current Standard Criteria. The above entities have developed the Regional Plan, which Reclamation has evaluated and preliminarily determined to meet the requirements of the Regional Criteria.
