The dry spring season, coupled with reduced discharges from the Riffe and Mayfield Dams, have resulted in lower than normal flows in the Cowlitz River. These conditions are affecting the output capability of our Ranney collector. If these conditions continue, the Kelso system may reach a point where adequate amounts of water cannot be produced to fully meet utility customer demand.
Therefore, the City of Kelso is asking residents to help conserve water.
Please see the full press release for details.
