Kern River Status Update
The District continues to make as much Kern Island Utility water as possible available to Kern Island Utility ground during the much higher than normal temperatures that are expected this week. The Kern Island will move to the “run of the River” which is typical for September as temperatures drop closer to normal. At times a waitlist may be necessary.
Long time Maintenance Supervisor Mike Brannon retired from the District last week. Many thanks to Mike for his dedication and service to Kern Delta, we hope he enjoys his retirement relaxing, traveling, and barbequing. Joe Bernard will take over as the new Maintenance Supervisor.
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.
