Folsom Lake Nearly Full – More Water Coming

Posted on: May 27, 2019


folsom lake level May 27 2019


The current Folsom Lake level stands at about 928,000 acre feet which is 95% of capacity.  In an average year, the lake level peaks just about June 1st, at 825,000 acre feet.

The last snow survey of the season was done on May 1st, and at that time the Sierra snow pack was at 188% of average, and over the last 2 weeks the highest peaks have seen over a foot of new snow.

See the chart above. The blue line is where we are now, the sky blue is where we are in an average year, and the red, when we were in the midst of the 2014 drought.

We’ve had 4 good, ‘wet’ years in a row, and water experts warn that we shouldn’t get too comfortable and to keep up conservation efforts, as we don’t know when the next drought is coming.

For now, expect a good long boating season and maybe enjoy a walk by our beautiful lake.
