Groundwater Banking or Exchange Agreement

Prior to a Project Participant delivering water pursuant to a groundwater banking or exchange agreement, the opportunity will need to be identified, negotiated, reviewed for CEQA compliance and the required contracts executed. Each opportunity has its own unique requirements but will ultimately require CCWA to become a signatory to (1) a transfer agreement between CCWA and the outside agency and (2) a transfer letter agreement between CCWA/SBCFCWCD, Groundwater Bank/Transfer Partner and DWR SWPAO. Therefore, when opportunities are identified, CCWA will provide a written report to describe the specific procedures to participate.
