Water Supply Update

The current extended unseasonably warm weather and already dry soil profile that our meager snowpack rested on, has resulted in below average runoff and streamflow amounts entering the reservoir system. As you can see by the graph below, the “2021 WATER SUPPLY” reservoir storage is starting to level off instead of rising. This trend is going to impact the projected storage amounts for the upcoming, already shortened irrigation season.

Without some measurable rain storms to give us some relief, we could see an even shorter irrigation than we originally anticipated in our earlier water supply updates.
