Flows remain steady following significant storms in November

SBVWCD Newsletter

Storms in early November have increased streamflow throughout the system as we approach the end of the calendar year. Mill Creek is flowing at about 15 to 17 cubic feet per second (or up to 7,650 gallons per minute) and so far has totaled just over 600 acre feet for the new water year. Seven Oaks Dam continues to flow at about 5 cubic feet per second at the Parshall Flume, with the rest of the flow going to direct use. Santa Ana River recharge totals are at 485 acre feet since October, and total recharge for the year is approximately 1,100 acre feet if flows continue.
