Foss could be dry in six years
If things continue as they are, Foss Reservoir will basically be dry by 2020, a Bureau of Reclamation spokesman said Monday night.
That of course is only six years away.
Matt Warren, facility operations supervisor for the BOR, said a bureau study in 2009 showed that Foss can hold 169,300 acre-feet of water. Ronnie Thompson, manager of the water treatment plant at Foss, said it had 85,680 acre-feet at the end of January, roughly half the 2009 figure.
