Water Supply Update – January 24, 2023

The water supply news for January is looking much better than it did the last two years. The following is a comparison of the reservoir levels on January 24, 2023, 2022 and 2021:

 

2023 2022 2021
Howard Prairie 9,573 3,474 5,203
Hyatt Lake 2,080 712 1,391
Emigrant Lake 7,454 2,466 1,801
TOTALS 19,107 16%) 6,652 (6%) 8,395 (7%)

The numbers are very encouraging, but we still need a lot more precipitation to continue to increase the storage amounts. We are very early in the year, so let’s hope the rain and snow continue to come our way and not go around us.
