Good news from the first Water Supply Outlook of 2023

ICPRB staff work closely with USGS, water suppliers, and other organizations to monitor for possible drought conditions. This includes publishing the monthly Water Supply Outlook, which provides the probability of low-flow conditions in the region.

There is good news for the basin. Although streamflow and groundwater levels are currently below normal, overall winter conditions means there is a low risk of drought this summer.
