March 26, 2013 - The Department of Water Resources has decreased 2013’s water delivery estimate from 40% to 35% of requested State Water Project water. The reduced allocation is due primarily to a record dry January and February in Northern California, where key reservoirs capture water to supply millions of Californians. Weather so far in March also has been relatively dry. California normally receives more than 90 percent of its rain and snow from December through April. Pumping restrictions this winter in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to protect salmon and Delta smelt also limit the ability of DWR to meet requests for State Water Project (SWP) supplies
