Following recent board review and discussion regarding water supplies for the balance of the 2019 irrigation season, there remains no change in water operations or allotment at this time. In addition, the District currently believes there will be no need for interrupted operations. Water supply from Wickiup Reservoir is tracking very close to last year for this time and, as a result, Wickiup Reservoir will again end up at a very low level. The District continues to pump water from the Crooked River including the 10,000 acre-feet of NUID storage in Prineville Reservoir. The District continues to monitor supply conditions very closely and will make any necessary adjustments as warranted.
As always, feel free to contact the District office should you have any questions.
