Reclamation has updated the 2020 Restoration Allocation and Default Flow Schedule on March 20, 2020.

This corresponds to an allocation of 155,335 acre-feet (AF) as measured at Gravelly Ford, or 272,280 AF at Friant Dam.  

Due to recent precipitation in the watershed, the allocation has improved to a “Dry” Water Year Type. The Restoration Allocation will continue to be updated regularly until May or June when the final determination will be made.

The Restoration Administrator for the Program will return a recommendation based on this allocation in the coming days, resulting in an updated schedule for Restoration Flows through February 28, 2021.
