Water Year 2018: Average Supply but Above-Average Reservoir Carryover​​​​​​​ 


Water-year 2018 ended up close to average, at 102% of average precipitation and 105% of average streamflow. The Upper Henry's Fork subwatershed was below average in precipitation and streamflow, vs. above-average values in Fall and Teton rivers. However, Upper Henry's Fork water supply improved from 70% of average in 2016 to 91% in 2017 and 94% in 2018, indicating recovery of deep aquifers from 2013-2016 drought.

May and June rain compensated for early snowmelt and resulted in below-average irrigation diversion. Despite very dry conditions and below-average streamflow during July, August and September, Island Park Reservoir ended the water year at 73% full, compared with 43% full on average, thanks to careful and precise water management.

Riparian Fencing Program Continues in Fall 2018

Every year, HFF monitors 3 miles of riparian fencing; 1.5 miles along Wood Road 16 and 1.5 miles across from Last Chance.  These fences prevent grazing damage and the degradation of the riparian zone by cattle.  Without much rain this fall, we’ve had some instance of cattle breaking through the fence to reach the river, but we’ve responded as quickly as possible to lead them back to the correct side and repair any damages to the fence. Don C. Byers Memorial intern, Kamberlee monitors the fence line 2-3 times per week and makes repairs as needed.
