The Sacramento River Water Reliability Study (SRWRS) was a water supply plan consistent with the Water Forum Agreement (April 24, 2000) objectives of pursuing a Sacramento River diversion to meet water supply needs of the Placer-Sacramento region and promoting ecosystem preservation along the lower American River. The reason for canceling is that the non-federal sponsor, Placer County Water Agency, does not have the capital improvement funding to construct a project due to the decline in the regional and statewide economy.
The SRWRS cost-sharing partners had identified their long-term needs for additional water supplies to meet growing water supply demands and reliability objectives in their respective service areas. Placer County Water Agency, Sacramento Suburban Water District, and the cities of Roseville, and Sacramento were the cost-sharing partners.
Reclamation published a notice of intent to prepare the EIS/EIR on July 30, 2003 (68 FR 44811).
