East Bay Municipal Utility District and several water agencies in San Joaquin County have reached an agreement that will provide additional funding and water to improve the health of the Eastern San Joaquin Groundwater Basin.

The County of San Joaquin, North San Joaquin Water Conservation District, Stockton East Water District, Central Delta Water Agency, South Delta Water Agency and EBMUD have agreed to dismiss all objections on various pending water right matters in order to move forward on a groundwater banking pilot project.

Under the agreement, EBMUD will provide $4 million and water from the Mokelumne River for the project to manage the Eastern San Joaquin Groundwater Basin more efficiently. 

In addition, EBMUD has agreed to provide additional water to NSJWCD and SEWD, as well as assist the county with storing Mokelumne River water in the Camanche Reservoir.

“Partnerships are key to capitalizing on opportunities to utilize Mokelumne River water to manage our groundwater basin," San Joaquin County Supervisor Ken Vogel said in a press release issued late Tuesday afternoon. "I thank EBMUD and our leaders in the San Joaquin County water community for investing the time to forge this agreement and also for working diligently to develop mutually beneficial groundwater recharge projects.” 

Two of those groundwater recharge projects are currently being undertaken by NSJWCD district.

“We are excited to move forward with the projects in North San Joaquin that will allow our district to fully utilize its Mokelumne River water, including the Tracy Lake Groundwater Recharge Project and the South System Rehabilitation Project," NSJWCD board president Joe Valente said in Tuesday's press release. "The EBMUD funding and extra water has made these projects more affordable for our district.”
