Folsom Lake Over 3/4 Full after Recent Storms

Doesn’t Cure the Drought, but Welcome News

The water level of Folsom Lake, fed by recent storms and snow melt, has reached 754,857 acre feet, which is about 78% of capacity and 5% above the historic average for the date. 

The level typically bottoms out in December at about 380,000 acre feet. 

While this is welcome news, experts warn that with the Sierra snowpack at 38% of normal, we still must conserve, but the regions water needs will be met for this year.
