The State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) has started to temporarily lift water rights curtailments for post-1914 appropriative water rights holders based on upcoming precipitation events.  Due to timing concerns, the State Water Board will only provide electronic notification of these short-term opportunities, distributed on a real-time basis via the Drought e-mail subscription, available here (select Water Rights and then Drought Updates).  Water right holders should monitor the State Water Board’s e-mail notices and/or website to take advantage of these temporary actions.
