"Water managers and fisheries can expect above normal runoff this season thanks to above average snowpack and reservoir storage," said Chuck Garner, supervisory hydrologist.
The July TWSA forecast is based on flows, precipitation, snowpack, and reservoir storage as of July 1, along with estimates of future precipitation and river flows. Weather conditions will determine streamflows, reservoir storage, and the water supply available.
"Weather changes which are not 100 percent predictable can influence both streamflow levels and seasonal carry-over storage which is why water conservation should always be a consideration in the Yakima Basin," Garner said.
