DWR Sets Initial State Water Allocation at 20 Percent

The California Department of Water Resources announced a 20 percent initial state water allocation for 2017 for customers served by the State Water Project (SWP). State officials suggested the allocation amount may change in the spring of next year depending on the amount of precipitation winter storms bring to the state.

According the DWR’s release, “Initial allocations frequently change. For example, the initial allocation for this year (2016) was 10 percent, with a final allocation of 60 percent.”
