Water Supply Outlook As Expected

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service’s June water supply outlook report for Oregon contained no surprises coming off a record-low winter snowpack that will lead to significantly low stream flows this summer.  The report shows record low snowpacks for the Hood, Sandy, and Lower Deschutes basins, peaking at its lowest level and earliest date since records began over 30 years ago.  Summer streamflow forecasts for the basins range from 48-to-57 percent of average for June through September.  Forecasted streamflow volumes fall in the lowest tenth of observed streamflows since 1981.  Water managers are being told to expect significant shortages this summer.
