The rain might have cleared out for the time being, but the Robles Diversion Canal is still transferring water from the Ventura River to Lake Casitas. 
“It was still flowing at 60 cubic feet per second this morning,” Steve Wickstrum said March 1, “and we were releasing 30 cubic feet per second into the river.”
Wickstrum, general manager of the Casitas Municipal Water District (CMWD), said the canal was transporting 64 cubic feet per second (cfs) Feb. 28. “So until we get another peak in the river, as defined by our Biological Opinion, the canal should continue to flow,” he said. “The creeks — Santa Ana and Coyote — are still bringing a lot of water into the lake, too.”
