Kings River Water Available to Landowners in Alta Irrigation District Ahead of Water Run

Dinuba, CA – Above normal precipitation and record snowfall within the Kings River watershed during March and April resulted in above-average entitlement for Alta Irrigation District that must be used to make more space available behind Pine Flat Dam for additional runoff from the high country. In response to this bountiful supply, Alta Irrigation District has and continues to bring Kings River water into its system for direct use. Although water run is not scheduled to start until May 17th, this water is available to landowners on an “as-is” basis and available at no cost through May 16th. Ditchtenders will not be managing water prior to May 17th; however, water orders can be placed starting May 14th or anytime thereafter. Periodically visit Alta Irrigation District’s website (www.altaid.org) or office for updates on this pre-water run and official water run.
