NEW HOGAN RESERVOIR:
As of February 21, 2017, New Hogan Reservoir contained 239,014 acre-feet of water. This total is significantly better than when we began the 2016 water year (at approximately 73,000 acre-feet). Currently, the Army Corps is trying to balance between storing water for irrigation purposes and releasing water for flood control purposes to protect the City of Stockton and its surrounding areas. The District is confident we will have a normal irrigation season.
NEW MELONES RESERVOIR:
Finally, some good news regarding New Melones Reservoir. The Reservoir is currently holding 1.35 million acre feet (vs. 393,000 acre feet this time last year) with a substantial amount of snow waiting to melt and increase this level even more. While there are no guarantees that the District will get an allocation of water, we have received water in the past with the reservoir at these levels, and are confident we will receive at least some water from New Melones.
CALL-IN REQUESTS FOR WATER:
As a reminder, you are required to request delivery of water a minimum of 48 HOURS prior to diverting water. You can make these requests via the District website www.sewd.net or by calling (209) 469-3335.
