Abstract: Since the first deliveries made by the State Water Project (SWP) in the early 1960's the State of California has become known worldwide as a pioneer in the development of complex water supply projects. Even today the People's Republic of China in its search for proven technologies in the Western World is tapping the experience of the State in planning the development of its own water supply schemes. The State's water agency, which has over the years served as one of the principal providers of water supply, in its efforts to meet future water demands now finds itself in a new market combining forces with a local district in Northern California who has initiated a project which will ultimately benefit both local farmers and the State Water Project. The State's water agency's involvement in a water supply and power project being developed by a local governmental entity has very little precedent in California but is consistent with future plans for State Water Project management.
