State Water Project Increases Water Allocations
The State Department of Water Resources announced an increase to State Water Project (SWP) customers from 45 percent to 60 percent. The projected allocation marks an improvement over last year, when the SWP delivered 20 percent of contractors’ allocations. The 2016 projection would mark the highest allocation since 2012, when water providers got 65 percent of their contract amounts. The SWP hasn’t delivered 100 percent in over 10 years.
