2015 - Bid Sheet 



2015 Update

Due to the precedent setting dry water year, Alta Irrigation District will not be delivering surface water for agricultural purposes this summer. The driest April through July water runoff forecast on record was 1924, which for Alta Irrigation District was 24.2 percent of average.  

Currently, the Kings River April through July water runoff forecast is from 8 to 11 percent of average.  This will be the first time since Alta Irrigation District was formed in 1888 that there will be no surface water deliveries for agriculture.  



California Groundwater Legislation

Governor's Message:

To the Members of the California Legislature:

I am signing AB 1739, SB 1168 and SB 1319, which taken collectively establish a new structure for managing the State's groundwater. These bills accomplish a number of goals described in the California Water Action Plan, a five-year plan to sustainably manage our water resources. When combined with the other elements outlined in the plan -- conservation, water recycling, expanded storage, safe drinking water, wetlands and watershed restoration - and the passage of Proposition 1, we can take giant strides to secure California's water future. A central feature of these bills is the recognition that groundwater management in California is best accomplished locally. Local agencies will now have the power to assess the conditions of their local groundwater basins and take the necessary steps to bring those basins in a state of chronic long-term overdraft into balance. The State's primary role is to provide guidance and technical support on how to plan for a more sustainable future and to step in on an interim basis when, but only when, local agencies fail to exercise their responsibilities as set forth in this legislation. My administration will work closely with all affected groups to ensure that the statute is fairly implemented. Further, I will submit for legislative consideration during the next session a proposal to streamline judicial adjudications of groundwater rights. GOVERNOR EDMUND G. BROWN JR.
