Term 91 lifted

Term 91 lifted

The recent rainstorms have prompted the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) to immediately lift Term 91 curtailments. This decision should be helpful for straw decomposition and wildlife habitat, as it allows water diversions to shallow flood rice fields.

The SWRCB has the authority to re-establish Term 91 curtailments at any time if dry conditions persist. We will keep you posted if there are changes to diversions moving forward.
