In comparison to the last several water years, this water year is going to be a much better water year.
WATER ALLOCATIONS: The most recent April through July water forecast (April 12, 2016) for the Kings River shows a probability of 74%. At this time, Alta plans to start releasing surface water from Pine Flat Dam on Thursday, May 12, 2016; Ditchtenders will start taking water orders starting on the same date. Water allocations will be based on 3.0 days per 20 acres running 1 cubic feet per second for parcels at 100 percent entitlement. It is anticipated that water run will run from May into August.
WATER TRANSFERS: Water transfers will be reviewed on an individual basis. All requests for water transfers should be forwarded to Javier Cavazos at (559-318-0175).
