    Section 3405(e) of the Central Valley Project Improvement Act (Title 34 Pub. L. 102-575), requires the Secretary of the Interior to, amongst other things, “develop criteria for evaluating the adequacy of all water conservation plans” developed by certain contractors. According to Section 3405(e)(1), these criteria must promote, “the highest level of water use efficiency reasonably achievable by project contractors using best available cost-effective technology and best management practices.” In accordance with this legislative mandate, the Bureau of Reclamation developed and published the Criteria for Evaluating Water Management Plans (Criteria). Each of the twelve entities listed below developed a Plan that Reclamation evaluated and preliminarily determined meets the requirements of the Criteria. The following Plans are available for review:

    • City of Roseville
    • City of Santa Barbara
    • Contra Costa Water District
    • Del Puerto Water District
    • Dunnigan Water District
    • East Bay Municipal Utilities District
    • El Dorado Irrigation District
    • Proberta Water District
    • Santa Clara Valley Water District
    • Shafter-Wasco Irrigation District
    • Truckee-Carson Irrigation District
    • Tulelake Irrigation District

    We invite the public to comment on our preliminary (i.e., draft) determination of Plan adequacy. A copy of these Plans will be available for review at Reclamation's Mid-Pacific Regional Office, 2800 Cottage Way, MP-410, Sacramento, CA 95825. If you wish to review a copy of these Plans, please contact Ms. Stemen.
