Reclamation Continues Negotiation of a New Repayment Contract for San Luis
Drainage Collection Facilities 

The Bureau of Reclamation has scheduled a sixth session to negotiate a new
repayment contract with the Westlands Water District to provide for
reimbursement of federal funds used to construct the drainage collection
facilities within Westlands.


Westlands Water District (WWD) is a contractor in the San Luis Unit of
Reclamation's Central Valley Project.  Located west of the city of Firebaugh
and extending south to Kettleman City, Westlands encompasses more than
600,000 acres of farmland in western Fresno and Kings counties.


In the San Luis Drainage Feature Re-Evaluation Study, completed in March
2007, Reclamation identified alternatives for providing drainage service to
the San Luis Unit.      


The sixth negotiation session is scheduled in:



Monday, October 18, 1 p.m.

2800 Cottage Way

Room E-2901


The public is welcome to attend the negotiation session and will have the
opportunity to comment. Participation instructions will be provided at the
session along with pertinent documents.  For additional information, please
contact Valerie Curley, contract administration branch chief, at
559-487-5041 (TTY 800-735-2929), fax 559-487-5397 or e-mail
