Semitropic’s Plans for the Near Future

Semitropic Water Storage District has permitted and is ready for construction of a second phase of the groundwater banking program.

This new unit, called the Stored Water Recovery Unit, will increase storage by 650,000 acre-feet to a maximum of 1.65 million acre-feet and increase recovery capacity by 200,000 acre-feet/year for a total guaranteed or pumpback capacity of 290,000 acre-feet/year. This means that the Semitropic Water Storage Bank, including its entitlement exchange capability of up to 133,000 acre-feet/year, will be able to deliver up to 423,000 acre-feet per year of dry year yield to the California Aqueduct. In a 50 percent year, the water bank’s capacity is equivalent to about 18 percent of the entire State Water Project yield.

Semitropic Water Storage Bank is currently looking for additional banking partners to share the benefits of the Stored Water Recovery Unit. Partners can include:

  • existing banking partners
  • public agencies
  • metropolitan sub-agencies
  • CALFED Environmental Water Account users
  • private investors
  • developers requiring assured water supply
  • power companies requiring reliable generation cooling water
