While two of last three years allowed for record breaking water runs, the 2020 water run will not be a plentiful as those years. Water allocations will be available to lands with an entitlement category greater than or equal 25%; “Groundwater Only” lands will not receive any allocation this water run. Entitlement for 100% land is currently 1 cubic foot per second (cfs) per 20 acres for 4 days during an irrigation cycle with the number of days prorated for other entitlement categories (visit www.altaid.org for changes to allotment). See table below for a summary of allotments by entitlement category. Alta Irrigation District will apply its standard volumetric water charge of $4.75 per foot to any water diverted from its ditches.
