Water Deliveries Update

After a successful water run that started back in February, the District will be ending surface water deliveries on October 20, 2023.  The exceptional rain and snow events earlier this year resulted in record breaking Kings River runoff of approximately 4.5 million acre-feet.  Due to the large runoff, a flood release was declared on February 23rd and lasted until July 24th.  Since February, the District has diverted over 500,000 acre-feet of Kings River water with approximately 300,000 acre-feet going to groundwater recharge.  With surface water deliveries ending on October 20th, the District will focus on maintenance activities in preparation for the new water year.

Water Operations Update

With the 2022-2023 Water Year coming to a close at the end of September, the Consolidated Irrigation District (District) is preparing to wind down the delivery season.  The exceptional rain and snow events earlier this year resulted in one of the largest and wettest snowpacks in the recorded history of the Kings River.  Flood releases from Pine Flat Reservoir that ran from February 23rd to July 24th provided terrific groundwater recharge opportunities across the District. To date, the District has recharged over 300,000 acre-feet of surface water. 

Currently, the District has about 70,000 acre-feet of surface water in storage at Pine Flat Reservoir.  Approximately 20,000 acre-feet of water will be reserved to meet the District’s obligations under the Kings River Fishery Management Program during the upcoming water year.  The remaining 50,000 acre-feet of water will continue to be diverted to meet grower demand first with any excess water going to recharge ponds.  Based on this projection, surface water deliveries will end in approximately 30 days. 

Water Run 2021

Consolidated Irrigation District will begin Lone tree (Church water) deliveries on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. Church deliveries estimated duration to continue 30-60 days. Lone Tree water users should contact their Irrigation Specialist to schedule water delivery. Based on this year’s existing and anticipated runoff, there is not enough entitlement necessary to provide a complete turn for all those receiving Consolidated water. Therefore, there will be no Consolidated water run this year. If you have any questions, please call the District Office at (559) 896-1660.

Consolidated Irrigation District is accepting sealed bids for equipment and trucks for sale. The bids are due October 29, 2021 by 5 pm at District Office, 2255 Chandler St. If you have any questions, please contact office at (559) 896-1660.
