Total expected April through July runoff in the North Platte Basin above Glendo Dam is expected to be 700,000 acre feet (AF) or 78% of the 30 year average of 897,000 AF. Approximately 575,000 AF (81% of average) of the runoff is expected to enter Seminoe Reservoir with an additional 65,000 AF (102% of average) being provided to Pathfinder Reservoir from the Sweetwater River, and the balance of 60,000 AF (48% of average) coming from the basin between Pathfinder Reservoir and Glendo Reservoir.
The water in storage for delivery to North Platte Project contractors is 237,300 AF or 43% of average. The Bureau of Reclamation is advising North Platte Project water users that there may be a need for an allocation, based on existing data.
The Bureau of Reclamation will update the inflow forecasts again in March, April, and May.
