STAY SAFE:WATER SUPPLY UPDATE, May 6, 2024 – The Yakima Field Office has just completed their May 1, 2024 Yakima Project Total Water Supply Available (TWSA) update. The runoff forecast has declined and indicates a revised proration rate of 54% that was announced on May 3, 2024. The current KRD landowner allotment for 2024 is set at 1.4 Cubic Feet per Second (or 2.8 acre-feet per assessed acre). KRD will be delivering water this year in a similar manner to how it has been allocated in past drought years. There will be an initial emphasis on the first cutting of hay and then KRD will ramp down daily diversions to extend the season into August. Because of this drought KRD does not anticipate delivering irrigation water in September or October of 2024.KRD will continue to monitor this emergency situation. It is likely that it will be necessary for KRD to adjust the instantaneous and per acre quantities as the 2024 water year progresses. ... See MoreSee Less

TAKE NOTE (4/5/24):PRESCRIBED FIRE & TRAIL CLOSURES: UKC Fuels is planning prescribed burn operations on the Cle Elum Ridge above Roslyn starting as early as Wednesday April 10th with a burn program continuing over the next several weeks as weather and fire conditions allow.

It is likely that one of the first units will be near the start of the Rat Pack trial resulting in the closure of Rat Pack and the Cle Elum Ridge Road east of the start (see map pictured) for an least a week or two. An additional burn unit might be "Pauls Trail" which would burn our from Paul's trail to the Ridge Road for the length of the trail - this would result in a closure of Paul's Trail and the Ridge Road. Again - concise details will be posted closer to burn operations. For public and firefighter safety please obey all trail closures. Prescribed fire on the ridge will create smoke impacts in Roslyn and Cle Elum especially in the early morning hours. If you are sensitive to smoke please close your windows during and after burn operations. Prescribed Fire is an important part of the Cle Elum Ridge Fuels Reduction Project and is designed to mitigate the threat wildfire poses to the Cle Elum valley. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
