Folsom Lake is now holding about 828,000 acre feet of water, which is about 85% of total capacity and 113% of average.
Last year at this time, the lake was at about 55% of capacity.
The lake level usually peaks around the beginning of June, with most of the Sierra snow pack melting away.
We may not be out of the drought, but it’s so much better than last year.

That’s right, it’s bike month in the Sacramento region, and Folsom, winner of the Silver Award as one of America’s bike-friendly cities, is leading the way with some great events.
Kicking it off will be the Great Scott Bike and Walk. You can enjoy over 30 miles of beautiful country roads, closed to vehicle traffic for the exclusive use by cyclists and pedestrians.
This free event is made possible by the City of Folsom, Sacramento County, El Dorado County, the City of Rancho Cordova, the 50 Corridor Chambers of Commerce, and a variety of community sponsors.
