YBSA Monthly Report June 2022

Storage: All 5 reservoirs are at 100% capacity. This is the time of the summer when the Yakima Basin water availability is supplemented by the releases from all 5 reservoirs.

Water Graph: The graph of total system storage shows current storage is slightly greater than last year at this point of time. The water intake in the reservoirs is now less than the water being released. The Yakima River flow needs to provide water for irrigation and for fish survival in the river.

Yakima River: The flow in the lower Yakima River has reached flood state for the first time in 2022. Snow melt is currently at a minimum at the present time.
