The snowpack in Central Oregon continued to dwindle in May and that could make this a tough year for fish, farms, and recreation. The water supply outlook for the Upper Deschutes and Crooked Basins did not improve in May due to warm weather. Scott Oviatt with the Natural Resources Conservation Service says May rainfall was 104% of normal. However, he says the entire water year that started October 1st is only 76% of normal. Oviatt says that means the water supply outlook for the basins is not good. Oviatt says water conservation will be especially important this year.
