160 million gallons per year (MGY) of disposal in one water balance, 70 MGY of direct discharge in other water balance.


The 80 MGY is a simple projection at this time for a typical water year “balance”. Thi is an estimate of what will be needed annually, at build-out of the District, for direct discharge. This does not account for any additional disposal beyond what is shown in the balance (i.e., this number could be reduced with additional snowmaking, subsurface discharge, irrigation, etc). The 180 MGY is a suggested permit request, in order to cover unforeseen emergencies (e.g., pipeline failure due to landslide), extreme weather years, etc.
