2018 Water Allocations

Reclamation has yet to announce what the 2018 water year allocations will be. As is typical, the bottom line is the fish. They always come first. We're actually lower on the pole than you may think. The Board of Directors will be having an evening meeting on April 18th to discuss the allocation (if we have one by that time) and to discuss the rising cost of being able to provide water to the customers of our District. As you may already know, Reclamation has raised the cost of the water this year. Agricultural water costs have increased $9.84 per AF and M&I water increased $2.10 per AF. These costs do not reflect the costs for treatment and distribution which have seen significant increases as well. The meeting will be held at the district office at 7:00 p.m. on the 18th of April.
