September 15 – Updates on the 2023 Lower Tule and Pixley water runs:
- It is currently anticipated that the runs for both Districts will last until the end of October when the Friant Kern Canal goes down for maintenance and construction projects.
- As a reminder, these are the types of years landowners should be taking advantage of by recharging water and building up their groundwater accounts.
We will continue to keep you updated as we get closer to the end of the run.
As always if there are any questions please call the office.

After taking into account a positive weather outlook and 100% Class 1 Friant water supply, the Board of Directors, at the March Board meeting set the 2023/2024 water allocation at 2.15 acre-feet per acre.
With the District cost of delivery, and with much deliberation, due to the extreme dry conditions from the 3 previous water years, the Board set the water rate for the West turnouts at $155 per acre-foot and the East turnouts at $180 per acre-foot.
Also attached is a copy of the 2023 Rules and Regulations approved at the February Board of Directors meeting.
As always, please call the office, 559-686-4716, if you have any questions.
