Abstract:

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers has made findings in its Detailed Project Report dated February 1974 that the Kern River-California Aqueduct Intertie, a gravity connection between the Kern River and the California Aqueduct near State Highway 119 hereinafter referred to as Intertie, is feasible and will provide flood control benefits and can be constructed as a Small Flood Control Project under Section 205 of the Flood-Control Act of 1948, as amended. Announcement of authorization of the Intertie was made on June 20, 1974. Diversion of certain floodwaters into the California Aqueduct, a feature of the State Water Project, is essential to the Corps finding of feasibility of the Intertie. State as owner and operator or the California Aqueduct is willing to allow such, floodwaters to be diverted therein under certain conditions through use of the Intertie in order to provide flood control benefits, provided such use is compatible with the normal operation of the Aqueduct. In order to reduce economic loss to the community resulting from floods, the Agency desires that such floodwaters be diverted into the California Aqueduct through use of the Intertie, and the Buena Vista Water Storage District, Fourth Kern Water Storage District, Tulare Lake Basin Water Storage District, and Hacienda Water District, each such district being duly organized, existing and acting pursuant to the laws of the State of California and hereinafter collectively referred to as the Kern River Interests, consent to such diversions. State as owner and operator or the California Aqueduct is willing to allow such, floodwaters to be diverted therein under certain conditions through use of the Intertie in order to provide flood control benefits, provided such use is compatible with the normal operation of the Aqueduct.
