As of Thursday, Dec. 3, the Middle Ranch Reservoir water level measured 201 acre feet.


The California Public Utilities Commission recently approved Southern California Edison’s request to postpone Stage 3 (50 percent) water rationing. The approval came just in time. Without state approval for the delay, Edison would have been required to impose 50 percent water rationing when the reservoir water level dipped below 200 acre feet.


The delay was requested in anticipation of increased range and in anticipation of an increased supply of fresh water provided by the Island’s new desalination plant.


The dedication ceremony for Catalina’s new desalination unit was held Monday, Nov. 30.
