In the Bay Area, Reclamation is partnering with Contra Costa Water District to pursue the Los Vaqueros Reservoir Expansion project, which would increase water storage capacity in an existing footprint from 160,000 acre-feet to 275,000 acre-feet and add new conveyance facilities. This legislation invests an additional $11.95 million on top of the previously approved $2.16 million in federal funds. Reclamation finalized the Supplemental EIS for the project in February 2020 and delivered the final feasibility report to Congress in August 2020.
