Kern River Status Update
Last week the Department of Water Resources updated their April Bulletin 120 (B-120 Update) forecast for the April through July runoff of the Kern River. This forecast came in at 23% to 25% of average, confirming that this will be a critically dry year.
Growers are now able to place their water orders via email. Water orders must still be placed no later than 10:30 a.m., and twenty four (24) hours prior to the requested delivery or shutoff. Water orders can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and a confirmation email will be sent once it has been received.
