Rain helps irrigation, water year outlook
Hollie Cannon: Getting ready for year was trying
By JOEL ASCHBRENNER, Herald and News 6/8/12
Scattered rain showers throughout the past week have been a blessing to Klamath Basin irrigators.
“This was a very good timely rain,” said Hollie Cannon, director of the Klamath Water and Power Agency, adding, “If the irrigators are just a little bit careful, I think there’s going to be enough water.”
As of Wednesday, year-to-date precipitation was 95 percent of historical average.
The level of Upper Klamath Lake, a primary irrigation water source, as of Thursday was 4,142.11, down from 4,142.77 on the same date last year, and up from 4,141.42 in 2010 during a moderate drought.
