In January, the water amount was limited to only what was necessary for health and public safety. The California Department of Water Resources says more rain fell in February than was anticipated, allowing the Department some flexibility. The water board says it has consulted with state and federal fish agencies to ensure that no endangered fish would be put at risk.

 

DWR expects to update allocations for all water users on April 1st.
