Department of Water Resources Announces Initial State Water Project Allocations

Despite the last few storms that brought the North State much needed rain, this water year has been relatively dry, and those conditions are reflected in the Department of Water Resources’ initial State Water Project allocations. DWR announced Friday that the 29 participating members of the State Water Project can expect to receive 10 percent of the requested allocations in 2019. Yuba City is one of the contractors that receives water each year from the project. The percentage is likely to change as the water year progresses.
