Section C: General Information
1. Project Name:_____________________________________________________________________________________
2. Project Description: Please provide a general description (Executive Summary) of your proposed storage project to this
application as “Attachment C-1”.
3. Project Construction Start and
End Date:
4. Pr
oject Location: Please provide a description and a map(s) showing the location of the proposed project. If the project
includes injection wells or dry wells, please provide the exact location of each well (latitude and longitude). If the project
includes the capture of stormwater, please include a map and description of the drainage area from which the stormwater
will be obtained. Include descriptions and map(s) as “Attachment C-2”.
Section D: Hydrogeologic Information
Provide a complete description of the hydrogeologic and water quality conditions at and in the vicinity of the proposed project.
Document how the augmented water will reach and become part of the usable groundwater in the production aquifers of the
Basin and not just shallow perched water or other unusable water. Include cross sections and geologic and geophysical logs
of boreholes or wells at or near the site demonstrating subsurface conditions. Provide maps showing locations of existing
water supply wells within two miles of the project. Provide the depth to groundwater and groundwater flow directions and
gradients near the site (groundwater elevation contour maps). Provide conceptual and/or numerical hydrogeologic models to
present subsurface conditions and to estimate the impact of captured and stored water on local groundwater conditions,
including mounding or changing of local gradients. Provide existing groundwater water quality data at or near the site, the
expected quality of planned captured water for storage, and a description of the compatibility of the two water types. Provide
information on any contaminated sites located within one mile of the proposed project using regulatory databases or other

means, including site name and address, contaminants of concern, media affected (soil and/or groundwater), depth of
contamination, and regulatory status (closed, inactive, investigative, containment, or remediation). Discuss how the augmented
water project may or may not impact the contamination at the identified sites. Describe how the Project will not cause any
material or physical harm to the Basin. Label hydrogeologic and water quality information as “Attachment D-1”.
Section E: Augmentation Project Details and Requirements:
1. Describe in detail the design and construction of the proposed augmentation project. Specifically, describe the source of
augmented water and method by which the water will be augmented (injection wells, spreading grounds, infiltration
galleries/trenches, dry wells, bio swales, etc.); and provide
any additional information to demonstrate successful
augmentation of water into usable Basin production aquifers. Include details of planned operations and maintenance
activities for all project elements for the life of the project. Include detailed information and drawings to describe all measures
to capture and infiltrate water desired for augmentation. Label description “Attachment E-1”.
2. Parties to whom new rights will be assigned: ___________________________________________________________
3. All augmentation projects are subject to the following provisions:
(1) Regular monitoring to determine the actual amount of such new water replenishing the Basin’s productio
n
aqu
ifers.
(2) Make-up water or equivalent payment will be required if actual water supply augmentation does not meet
projections.
(3) Adjustment to extraction rights attributable to the Water Augmentation Project to match the actual water created
Is the applicant willing to comply with these provisions: Yes No
If not, please explain why:
Section F: Monitoring and Extraction:
APA (acre feet)
Please attach your responses to the following questions and label “Attachment F-1”.
1. P
rovide a description of how the amount of captured water will be determined, including the proposed metering devices
to verify the volume of water augmented and later removed. The project proponent will be required to establish suitabl
e
m
easuring and recording devices to furnish such records as may be needed to determine with reasonable accuracy th
e
quan
tity of water placed into storage into the usable production aquifers of the Basin and the quantity later recovere
d
under
the provisions of the approved project.
2. D
escribe how the quality of the captured and augmented water will be monitored, including frequency and chemical
constituents. Please describe how the project will be protective of the groundwater resources in this portion of the
Central Basin and not provide any material or physical harm to the Basin as requested. To analyze the water quality,
the suggested chemical analysis list can be found at:

regards to CEQA/NEPA:
2. Permits, Easements, or Certifications: provide a
description and status of all applicable permits, easements or
certifications required for the proposed project:
3. Provide a description of the proposed method to extract the stored water, the estimated timeframe in which the extraction
