Water Management Issues:

1.  Detailed scheduled release information for the next few days is shown on this graph.

2.  The May 2022 B120 report translates to a Below Normal water year for the rest of May through the end of October for sure, and very likely until around February 10 next year.  So, the above schedule reflects this scenario through February 10, 2022.  However, though highly unlikely, the designation could change on November 1, so check back then for an update.

3.  The surprise rainfall in April and May brought the water year type up from an almost certain Super Dry designation for the rest of the year to the current Below Normal.  The difference in scheduled release days, amounts and times is huge.  Wahoo!

4.  Times reflect releases at Chili Bar.  It takes approximately two hours for the water to travel from Chili Bar to Coloma, and three hours to Camp Lotus.

5.  Releases shown are minimum releases.  Actual releases may be higher than shown.  In addition, sudden higher or lower (or no) releases may result from emergency mechanical or electrical conditions.

6.  Users are urged to use caution and to wear all appropriate personal protective equipment.
