Snowpack levels still forecast shortage

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--Water shortages are in the future for many in the Yakima Basin.

Bureau of Reclamation leaders say recent snow in the Cascades has improved the snowpack levels, but water storage is still twelve percent below average levels.  As of April 1, system storage was 55 percent full.

Senior water users should get a full supply, but junior water rights holders may face a shortage.
