Starting the 2022 Water Run; Place Water Orders with Ditchtenders

Despite abnormally low, not lowest on record, local precipitation totals for the Central Valley, the combination of
precipitation in the Kings River watershed and favorable runoff conditions are the reasons for the 2022 water run.
Based on available water resources information, this year’s water run is anticipated to last about 5 weeks with Kings
River water flowing into the Alta Main on Monday, June 13th. Since many ditches were offline for about 20 months,
diversions from the Kings River will gradually increase over the next 5 days to minimize the potential of a breach.
This ramp-up period will also provide District staff the flexibility needed to deal with illegally dumped material that will
be transported down canals during the initial wet-up.

Alta Irrigation District Gears Up for 2022 Water Run During Drought

Dinuba, CA – Although snowpack was below average this year within the Kings River watershed, spring runoff provided Alta Irrigation District (District) with enough water for a limited water run. The District relies on water supply information from state and local agencies when planning for water run. According to Bulletin 120 from the California Department of Water Resources (DWR), Kings River runoff is projected to end at nearly forty (40) percent of average. DWR’s water supply projections fell over 40 points since release of its first report in February. If dry weather continues for the remainder of the year, total runoff volume for the Kings River may be in the top five driest events.
