A friend sent me an illuminating table that does a nice job of adding perspective to something I’ve written about several times here – California’s stunning reduction in its use of Colorado River water.
|Yuma (California side)||61||40||-21|
Data in thousands of acre feet.
Less than California’s 4.4 maf allocation? Is the difference stored or is it IID water sold to mwd and sdcwa?
Yes, California’s been under 4.4maf every year since 2016 inclusive. Much of the unused part of the apportionment has been banked in Lake Mead.
