Pixley Irrigation District Water Supply Notices

January 17, 2024

As part of Pixley’s Groundwater Sustainability Plan, the District’s Groundwater Planning Commission and Board developed a set of Rules and Operating Policies. Below is a link to a summary of the policies. The policies are also posted in the SGMA section on our website. More information related to the District’s plan is available on our website www.ltrid.org in the SGMA section.

 

Pixley 2024 GSP Quick Reference Guide

 

 

At the January Board meeting the Board approved Groundwater credit allocations for 2024 of: 0.71 AF/acre of Precipitation yield, 0.15 AF/acre Sustainable yield and 0.54 AF/acre of District allocated credits. For a total of 1.40 AF/Acre of Groundwater credits.

 

This credit allocation policy gives all landowners access to their share of the imported surface water regardless whether they can take delivery of the water from a District canal or not. By allocating it as a groundwater credit, you will have access to your share by pumping it from a groundwater well.

 

Keep in mind that as we transition to sustainability by 2040, there are also Transitional water credits available in 2 tiers. 2024 is the last year of the first block of Transitional water. Future allocations will be determined after the 2024 GSP revisions are done. The rates for those tiers for 2023 are $90/AF for tier 1 and $180/AF for tier 2.

 

Details of the allocations are in the attachment. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to call the office.

 

Sincerely,

Tea Pot Dome District Water Supply Notices

November 9, 2023

The Boards of Directors of the Teapot Dome Water District and the Vandalia Water District always strive to do what is best for the landowners. When the Eastern Tule Groundwater Sustainability Agency was being formed in 2016, the Boards felt that being a part of that GSA was the best thing for the landowners and Districts at that time.
Since then, the Districts have entered into management agreements (TPDWD in 2016, VWD in 2018) with the Lower Tule River Irrigation District. Given that relationship, the efficiencies of joint management, and the complexities of the implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, the Boards of Directors believe that self-management under SGMA is in the best interests of the landowners and Districts.
To that end, the Districts have reviewed different options of achieving that goal and will be holding meetings with landowners to give an overview of the details and answer any questions. It is important that landowners get the information and understand the details. We request you to attend one of the two sessions listed below.
