End of the Rescheduling Period
The Bureau of Reclamation announced the Rescheduling Period will end April 11, 2019 and it will apply “foregone pumping” loss to remaining water stored in San Luis Reservoir on April 12, 2019. Staff expects the application of forgone pumping loss, defined as Rescheduling Loss under the District’s rescheduling guidelines, will exhaust all remaining District water, about 100,000 (Acre-Feet) AF. Additionally, the District previously incurred about 31,000 AF in Cap Loss.
Per the District’s Rescheduling Policy, the District will apply Cap Loss and Rescheduling Loss, in that order, to water user accounts at the end of the Rescheduling Period. According to the District’s Rescheduling Policy, loss (whether Cap or Rescheduling) is prorated based on volume per acre, from highest to lowest, and is applied in the following order and manner:
- Any remaining Rescheduled Water in excess of the Acreage Based Cap (0.5 acre-feet per irrigable acre)
- Water rescheduled by the District
- Remaining Rescheduled Water
- Delivered Rescheduled Water in excess of the Acreage Based Cap
- Delivered Rescheduled Water within the Acreage Based Cap
As a reminder, if a water user loses water, the District will bill the water user all costs associated with the lost water. If you have any questions concerning the matter, please contact Russ Freeman at (559) 241-6241.
