2018-2019 Water Supply Update
Today, the allocation for South-of-Delta CVP agricultural water service contractors was increased from 40 percent to 45 percent. The allocation increase was based on the May forecasts from the California Department of Water Resources.
The Bureau of Reclamation’s announcement indicates that it plans “to limit the overall amount of water in San Luis Reservoir that is rescheduled at the end of the contract year into the 2019 contract year. Reclamation intends to work with South-of-Delta contractors and others this year on those plans, and to continue to refine end-of-year rescheduling concepts and implementation.”
Staff will continue to monitor water supply conditions. As additional information becomes available, water users will be notified as soon as possible.
