California Department of Water Resources Increases State Water Project Allocation to 60 Percent

The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) announced today that it was increasing its State Water Project allocation to 60 percent.  In a notice to State Water Project (SWP) contractors, DWR stated that in approving the allocation increase, it considered "existing storage in SWP conservation reservoirs, SWP operational constraints such as the conditions of the recent Biological Opinions for Delta smelt and salmonids and the longfin smelt incidental take permit, and 2012 contractor demands."

For more information regarding this matter, please contact Hanspeter Walter or the KMTG attorney with whom you normally consult.
