Carryover

Carryover will be deliverable, but water in spillable accounts is unlikely to be available until late in the season, if at all. Water in spillable accounts will be available when the NVRM declares a low risk of spill. If you’re unsure of whether your water will be in spillable accounts, here is how to find out.
