The Farmers Union came into priority on April 30, 2023 with 68.4 cfs.
June 2, 2023:
With the cold temps we had the last couple of days, the river as well as the reservoir inflow crashed and we dropped down to 531cfs in the canal today. We have planned to begin releasing reservoir water as soon as the river settles down and we see where we land. We would like to release enough reservoir water this year to keep the whole system wet rather than going into rotation like in the past. That being said, and depending on where the canal lands in priority, we should have water in the canal for most of the month of June.
