Roza Irrigation District YRBWEP Implementation: The YRBWEP Conservation Program is a joint program funded in part by Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology), the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the Recipient (in this case, Roza Irrigation District (RID). ECOLOGY's funding for this program is derived from the Agricultural Water Supply Facilities Referendum 38, Chapter 43.99E RCW, November 1980, and represents 17½ percent of the funding for implementation of approved water conservation measure(s). RECLAMATION's funding is authorized under Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe Water Settlement Act of 1994; P.L. 103-434, Section XII—Yakima River Basin Water Enhancement Project, and represents 65 percent of the funding to implement approved water conservation measures. The Recipient must fund the remaining 17½ percent of the cost to implement water conservation measure(s). Following the provisions of the Basin Conservation Program, RID completed a Water Conservation Plan in 1998 that included long-term rehabilitation of conveyance facilities and construction of three reregulation reservoirs. The plan was adopted by the District in 1998. RID has completed two of the three reregulation reservoirs identified in the 1998 plan, replaced many of the original check structures, and has pursued an aggressive program of converting ditches to piped laterals. This Water Conservation Plan was reviewed and accepted for Feasibility Investigation by Reclamation and Ecology. RID completed the Feasibility Investigation in July of 2012. RID is now completing the final construction of the third reregulation reservoir at wasteway 5 (WW5). The purpose of this grant agreement is provide cost share funding for the RID reregulation reservoir implementation at WW5 as set forth in the Feasibility Investigation. This project will encourage the voluntary reduction in water diverted from the Yakima River to further the YRBWEP goals. Simply stated, these goals are to improve the availability of water supplies for irrigation and to protect and enhance fish and wildlife resources, including wetlands, while improving the quality of water in the Yakima River basin.
