An increase of about 110,000 acre-feet is made possible by water taken from the Federal share remaining in San Luis Reservoir and by forecasted CVP operations. Projected exports from the Delta and South-of-Delta demands indicate that water is available for this allocation; however, should Reclamation be unable to fill the Federal share of San Luis Reservoir this winter, the increase may affect water supply in 2005. Water users have been made aware that the increased allocation may have an impact on CVP storage in San Luis Reservoir for 2005 depending on hydrologic conditions.
The forecast of CVP operations is available on the Mid-Pacific Region's website at: http://www.usbr.gov/mp/cvo. The preliminary water forecast for Water Year 2005 will be made in mid-January 2005.
