On Friday, May 22nd, the Calif. Department of Water Resources announced that the State Water Project (SWP) now expects to deliver 20 percent of requested supplies in 2020 as a result of above-average precipitation in May.

An initial allocation of 10 percent was announced in December and increased to 15 percent in January. The announcement will likely be the final allocation update of 2020.

Following below-average precipitation most of the winter, May storms delivered 181 percent of average in the Northern Sierra for this time of year.
