Moses Lake is experiencing significant runoff this year and continues to rise ahead of schedule. Potholes Reservoir is full, and though MLIRD dam gates are open, water from Moses Lake has no place to go. The US Bureau of Reclamation is expected to begin drawing irrigation water from Potholes the week of March 13 for SCBID, with flows beginning the week of March 20 for ECBID & QCBID. USBR is presently releasing water from Potholes at low volumes to provide some temporary relief. Click the links below to see elevation history for this time of year.
