Kern River Status Update

The Kern Delta Water District Office will be closed starting from December 23rd through 26th in observance of the Christmas holiday.

As we prepare for start up in the new year, growers are encouraged to reach out to the Dispatch Office to let us know what demand is expected to be going into 2022.

To help visualize the current state of the River, the District is providing this graph that compares flow rates for the current and last month of 2021, as well as other years in which the previous year was below average for the Kern River. The flows for this year are estimates only and subject to revision.
Below is a list of upcoming meetings that may interest our growers. The information presented at these meetings may directly affect agricultural practices and costs.
