Water Outlook 2017

Water Outlook 2017

Winter has started off with a bang. All basins within the State are at or above average for precipitation and snowfall. The wintery blast will give our 2017 season a boost but more importantly it will begin to restore our depleted snowpack and aquifer for future years. The reservoirs are filling nicely and with any luck will be full by spring.

Please note that the shoulder seasons (early and late) flows will continue as last season, with full flows beginning mid-May and continuing through mid-September.

The key to a successful startup will be communication, contact us when you are ready for water. If your headgate is open from winter stock runs and you are not in need of water please contact us so we can close it. This will help us with flows and keep water in the upper elevations until things begin to warm up and the growing season begins.
