WATER SUPPLY UPDATE

As you are aware, snow pack and precipitation is extremely low again this year. With that said, the current water supply and snow pack are running about the same as they were this time last year.

As of right now, we are looking at “low water supply operations” in the event weather conditions do not turn around. The District is positioning itself to deal with a short water year by moving water into Emigrant Reservoir so it will be available for irrigation deliveries.

With that said, it is still too early to make any hard decisions on delivery amounts or rotations. As we have all seen in recent years, we can have drier fall and winter months, only to experience wetter than average late winter and spring months that provide a suitable water supply for the irrigation season.

Everyone knows that we are currently dry. Unfortunately we will not know how dry we are until late April or early May. We will have a better water year prediction by then when comparing precipitation, snow-pack and reservoir content. Snowpack can have a large influence on the District’s water supply.

When and if the Board of Directors has to enact any drought contingency operations, we will let everyone know as soon as possible.
