As of Thursday, Sept. 12, the Thompson Reservoir level measured 435 acre feet, a 7 acre foot drop from the previous week. Fresh water usage is expected to to decrease as the tourist season has ended and there are likely to be fewer visitors using water in Avalon. However, only rain—a lot of rain—will cause the fresh water level to rise. Water rationing will become mandatory when the Thompson Reservoir level measures 300 acre feet or less.
