The water year begins in April of each year when the summer ends and all runoff would have been collected into reservoirs for use until the next summer which starts around November. For all intents and purposes the water authority uses statistics as of the end of April for their planning purposes. ZINWA has the responsibility to allocate, distribute and manage the available water resources in the reservoirs to the benefit of all stakeholders.
