The Bureau of Reclamation announced they will begin the annual filling of Alcova Reservoir on Saturday, April 1, 2017. Recreationists and reservoir users are advised to take proper precautions associated with the rising reservoir level.
During April, the reservoir will rise approximately 10 feet to the summer irrigation operating level. This rate of rise will average approximately 5 inches per day. This increase in reservoir level will be completed by May 1 to allow deliveries to the Casper-Alcova Irrigation District canal.
