Reclamation increases 2020 Central Valley Project water allocation for Friant Division: “[Yesterday], the Bureau of Reclamation increased the water supply allocation for Friant Division Central Valley Project contracts for the 2020 contract year. The Friant Division provides water for 15,000 family farms and several cities in the Central Valley. This is the fourth to the 2020 Central Valley Project water allocation for Friant Division this year. Initial allocations were made on February 25. Many factors are involved in making water supply allocation adjustments, including the latest hydrologic information, operational conditions in both the Upper San Joaquin River Basin and at Millerton Reservoir, as well as canal schedules from Friant Division contractors.
