TID started the summer water on April 13, 2020.
The TID water right certificates are divided up into what we call ‘Seasons’. These seasons limit the amount of water we are legally allowed to deliver even if it is available in excess. The seasons are divided as follows.
April 1 to May 1 35% flow cap
May 1 to May 15 50% flow cap
May 15 to Sept 15 100% flow cap
Sept 15 to Oct 1 50% flow cap
Oct 1 to Nov 1 35% flow cap
These percentages are approximate for discussion, and they are a cap to what we are allowed to deliver.
Our other cap is what water is available to deliver. TID can only deliver what it receives, our job is to ensure we deliver a fair and equitable division of the water we receive, as per our water rights.
Our goal this year will be to deliver about 70% flows in the May 15 to Sept 15 season as we did last summer. This amount is what we predict we will have available; it is a prediction and subject to adjustment.
Today, we are delivering 35%.
On May 1 we will attempt to deliver as close to 50% as we can depending on the snow melt.
On May 15 we will attempt to deliver 70%.
