Not that much water in Loveland Reservoir

Reader cuts out Max Bruch article

Government Cove didn't offer the best fishing, a situation remedied by the land exchange.

Music worth saving

History, geopolitics, and social sciences are my fields, but as a young boy growing up on Long Island, I was the organist of our parish and even joined the AFM in my 20s. I was delighted with your appreciation of Max Bruch. This article (“Max Bruch – better than Brahms,” Classical Music, January 7) is informative in that many readers probably do not know the range of Bruch’s great accomplishments. I’ve cut out the article and pasted it in my daily notebook.

Thank you for your interest in Loveland Reservoir, as indicated by the San Diego Reader’s March 29 article “Anglers say promises broken at Loveland Reservoir.” Sweetwater Authority was not contacted for comment on this article. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to correct several factual inaccuracies and provide additional context for points made within the article, as outlined below.

Loveland Reservoir provides storage for potable drinking water for Authority customers in National City, Bonita and portions of Chula Vista. The Authority’s Board is supportive of recreational activities at Loveland Reservoir, provided they do not interfere with the Authority’s mission. Loveland Reservoir is not drought resistant.

The water source for Loveland Reservoir is rainfall and subsequent runoff. Water levels are directly affected by yearly rainfall, as well as the rate of evaporation. The statewide drought and hot conditions have had a significant impact on the water level at Loveland Reservoir.

The average yearly rainfall (from July 1 — June 30) at Loveland Reservoir, historically, is 15.17 inches. Last year’s rainfall was 8.5 inches and this year’s to date (since July 1, 2021) is 8.01 inches. Though additional emergency water storage is available regionally, including at San Vincente Reservoir, the most cost-effective source of water for our customers comes from Authority-owned reservoirs. The Authority conducts water transfers from Loveland Reservoir to Sweetwater Reservoir when appropriate to secure water supply for our customers. The last water transfer occurred in January 2021. There have been no subsequent water transfers.
