Urban Water Wholesale

As defined in the May 2016 Emergency Regulation by State Water Resources Control Board, Woodbridge Irrigation District is considered an Urban Water Wholesaler:

Section 865(a) (5) “Urban water wholesaler” means a wholesaler of water to more than one urban water supplier.

WID provides raw water to the cities of Lodi and Stockton for treatment and subsequent municipal uses. Urban water wholesalers are to provide information to a publicly-accessible webpage on the volume of water they expect to deliver to each urban water supplier in each of the next three years. The wholesaler information needs to identify each source of water and the amounts it expects to deliver to each of its urban potable water retailers for the water year 2017, water year 2018, and water year 2019; and assuming in part: the same hydrologic conditions of water years 2013, 2014, and 2015 occur in water years 2017, 2018, and 2019, respectively.

The Mokelumne River serves as the source of water that WID supplies to the cities of Lodi and Stockton. While the years 2013, 2014, and 2015 were dry years on average, and based on pre-existing agreements concerning Mokelumne River operations, WID received a larger water allotment in 2013 than in 2014 and 2015. This did have an impact on the amounts of water WID could make available to its municipal customers. As required by the State, WID can make broad estimates for municipal deliveries in water years 2017-2019, based on the amounts of water WID delivered the cities of Lodi and Stockton in water years 2013-2015. Additionally, demand by WID’s municipal customers during water years 2013-2015 are also considered in the forecast. It is important to keep in mind, however, that these figures could be higher based on demand and availability.
