4  (+) Low Cost Pretty Clean  (-) Unpredictable Floods: 1841, 1862, 1864, 1884, 1916, , 1941, 1969, , 1983, 1993 Dry: 1810, 1859, 1951, 1958, 1964 Contain Nutrients from Urban Areas and Agriculture

5  (+) Island Wells Built by State Wells Not Potable Quality (Sulfur & Temperature)  (-) Power Cost and Maintenance - $225/AF Indirect Impact on Basin Groundwater Levels

6  (+) Readily Available from Local Area High Quality, Meets State Biological Standards Accepted by Public  (-) Contains Nutrients Cost of Treatment - $217 /AF Strict Nitrogen and Phosphorus Limits

7  (+) Provided by MWDSC – Colorado River or State Water Project Delivered Through Canyon Lake 1964 – 1966 Purchased 44,250 AF (or 15 feet water)  (-) Not Always Available Expensive $494 /AF

8 Rain - Average: 10,000 AF/year Local Groundwater - Average: 1,000 AF/year Recycled Water - 5,500 AF/year Imported Water - ? Evaporation - 15,000 AF/year

9 TDS (salts)-Requirement-2,000 mg/l Lake Objective Actual RW about 700 mg/l Total Nitrogen Requirement-1.0 mg/l & <16,372 #/yr Actual 3 mg/l – excess offset by aeration Total Phosphorus Requirement-0.5 mg/l & <8,186 #/yr Actual 0.3 mg/l & 5,300 #/yr
