“Based on the California Department of Water Resources’ April 1, Runoff Forecast, current hydrological conditions and actions taken to date to manage scarce supplies, the available contractual supply for North-of-Delta Settlement Contractor’s and wildlife refuges increased from 40 percent to 75 percent. Allocations for all other water contractors serviced by the CVP remain the same.”
