    On August 23, 2017 the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation filed petitions for temporary change to transfer up to 14,354 acre‑feet of water pursuant to California Water Code sections 1707 and 1725 et seq. This transfer will involve conveyance of water through the Butte Creek system for delivery to the Sutter National Wildlife Refuge by the addition of two points of rediversion at the intake facilities. Temporary changes involving a transfer of water may be in effect for one year from the date of approval.

    Interesting - I wonder if this plan involves "wheeling" of water across water districts from Sac river over to the destination?

    I wonder if USBR bought some Butte Creek water?

    Ha! For a second there, I almost thought you were serious.

    You might be able to answer that question on the State Water Board website.
