Kern River Status Update
DWR updated their first Bulletin 120 (B-120) forecast for the 2021 April through July runoff of the Kern River. The updated forecast for this year is 38% of average. This forecast is based on observed conditions through the morning of February 16 and assumes normal precipitation after that date. Every day that there isn’t precipitation will cause the forecast to go down.
