As of April 5, 2022, the water supply is still approximately 3,300 acre feet below where it was at this time last year. The combined storage in the three reservoirs of Howard Prairie, Hyatt Lake and Emigrant Lake is 13,155 acre feet or 12% of capacity. We currently have approximately 25 days of water to run the rotations for this upcoming irrigation season. This number is based on our best calculations at this time, nothing is guaranteed. We are hopeful that we will continue to receive more precipitation that will allow us to extend the season past the current estimate of 25 days. We encourage everyone to plan your irrigation needs accordingly for this historically short irrigation season.
Depending on what is happening with the weather, we anticipate the Board of Directors will make a decision on when water deliveries will begin, at the board meeting in May.
