Kern River Status Update
Due to the recent decline in Kern River flow and diminishing storage in Lake Isabella the Stine and Buena Vista Utility Service Areas have shut down. The Farmers Utility Service Area is scheduled to be shut down tomorrow, with the Kern Island and Eastside Utility Service Areas remaining in operation. Growers are encouraged to coordinate with the Dispatch Office regarding prorations and water orders. They can be reached at (661) 834-4653.
