Water Supply and Rates

April 7, 2022

WATER SUPPLY UPDATE

We are now receiving water from the San Joaquin River and this will continue through the summer. Given the extremely dry weather and challenging operations, the availability of our water supply from Reclamation is constantly under evaluation. The situation is rapidly changing and this is the information as we know it today. Below is our updated allocation.

  • Tier 1 – 2.5 acre-feet/gross acre – $ 20/acre-foot
  • Tier 2 – 0.5 acre-feet/gross acre –   $ 50/acre-foot

Unused January through August allocation can be moved to the September through December period; but September through December water cannot be used prior to September 1st.

SUPPLEMENTAL POOL WATER

The applications we have received to date are on hold until May. The current operation by Reclamation has some additional constraints through April and May. Due to this, we will start to process supplemental requests starting in May.

UPDATES

Additional updates will be sent out as frequently as necessary to make sure you have the most up to date information so you can plan your operations accordingly. You will need to remain in close coordination with your canal worker to pick up water as it becomes available. As always feel free to contact the office if you have any questions at (209) 826-1421.

Cordially,
Jarrett Martin
General Manager
