PUD Bracing for Lower Water Year Than Predicted

March 11, 2013


The latest runoff

forecast for the Lake Chelan Basin shows further evidence that the PUD is in for a lower water year than

originally predicted. Perhaps El Nino is in effect after all. It now appears that runoff for the PUD will fall

somewhere in the low 90th percentiles, when it was more like 125 percent one year ago.

on the latest PUD water predictions, and how they are used.
