Water Management Issues:

1.  The final release schedule will be based on the official water year type for 2019, which in turn will be based on CA DWR's May B120 report (expected around May 8).

2.  Since the May report isn't available yet, the above PROVISIONAL schedule is based on the April report, which predicts that the current water year is Wet.

3.  However, if the final water year ends up being Below Normal instead of Wet, then the above schedule will change to match (we'll lose three release days: the 8th, 9th and 28th).  Bottom line: be sure to check back here around May 8 for an update.

4.  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.

5.  Times reflect releases below Ice House Dam.

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