Board will meet Tuesday- May 10, 2016 at 9:00A.M., in the Board room at the Roza office in Sunnyside.

·    Reclamation forecasts a full water supply in 2016.  The forecast is premised on receiving average precipitation from April 1 to September 31.

·         Should the precipitation be 50% of average during the water season, Roza is forecast to receive 81% water supply.

·    There is very good soil moisture under the snow, which will extend the runoff period.

·         The snow density is 38% to 49%, which is ripe for coming off.

·         Storage control of the river will likely not occur until after early May. In an average year, storage control occurs in mid to late June. Storage control occurred on April 15th in 2015. The date that river is controlled by releases of stored water in the reservoirs is the date we begin using Roza’s allotted bucket of water, so the later the storage control date the better.  

 

Normally, one full business day advance notice will be required for water orders, however, the District reserves the right to postpone water delivery orders two full business days when necessary.  6:00 a.m. is the cutoff time because Roza's Watermaster submits orders to the Bureau of Reclamation at 6:00 a.m.

 

For example: Water orders received by the District before 6:00 a.m. on a Tuesday will be delivered Wednesday.  Orders received after 6:00 a.m. Tuesday (but before 6:00 a.m. Wednesday) will be delivered Thursday.

Similarly, orders received before 6:00 a.m. Friday will be delivered Monday and orders received after 6:00 a.m. Friday will be delivered Tuesday.

Saturday, Sunday and holidays are not considered business days for water ordering purposes. One extra business day may be required by the Bureau of Reclamation if water is not readily available to the District.
