WATER RUN 2012

NEWS RELEASE

May 1, 2012

 

All indications point to a below average water year.  

The most recent April through July water entitlement number (April 24, 2012) for the Kings River indicate a 51% forecast. Fortunately, Alta carried over water in Pine Flat Dam from last year sufficient to make water deliveries for ninety days. As a result, the 2012 water run will be initiated on May 9, 2012 continuing into August. At this time, all entitlements will be prioritized based upon four days of water usage per twenty acres running one cubic foot per second. Groundwater only entitlement areas will conditionally receive an initial allocation of 1 day per 20 acres or 25% allocation.  All allocations are subject to change upon review of storage, schedule and forecast information.
