Today, the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) provided a Central Valley Project (CVP) water supply allocation update of 100 percent to North-of-Delta agricultural water service contractors and 40 percent to South-of-Delta agricultural water service contractors. Both amounts reflect an increase from the initial allocation of 30 percent for agricultural contractors North- and South-of-Delta. Municipal and Industrial water service contractors remain projected to receive 75 percent of their historic use.
In addition, the allocations for Sacramento River Settlement Contractors and San Joaquin River Exchange and Settlement Contractors have increased to 100 percent from the initial allocation of 75 percent. The wildlife refuges allocation has also increased to 100 percent.
