Top Story: Water Supply will meet irrigation demands
According to the US Bureau of Reclamation, The Bureau of Reclamation’s May 2023 water supply forecast for the Yakima basin indicates the water supply will be adequate to meet irrigation demands this season. The May–September total water supply available would provide senior water rights 100% of entitlements and junior water rights 86% of entitlements, an increase from last month. Storage in Yakima basin reservoirs on May 1 was a little more than half full at 610,000 acre-feet, which is 76% of average. Precipitation was 112% of average in April and was 75% of average for October–April. On May 1, the amount of water in the snowpack, known as snow water equivalent, was 99% of average.
