Lack of Snow Worrying More Than Just Skiers

wsdot

The lack of snow has a lot of ski resorts in the state concerned and scrambling to come up with creative ways to bring people to the slopes, but they are not the only ones worried.

Yakima Valley growers are also beginning to notice the limited quantities of the frozen stuff this year and are growing uncertain about the upcoming season.

Chuck Garner the River Operations and Land Resources Supervisor for the Bureau of Reclaimation in Yakima says the valley is at half of the usual snowfall at this time of year but, “We usually get a lot of snow in late January February and March.”

Garner is not yet worried about the lack of snow at this point but he says if there is not a lot of snow during the next several months and water supply is short, junior rights water holders will get less than their pro-rated amount during the upcoming growing season.

The Bureau of Reclamation monitors the snowpack.
