This graph shows that as of midnight, Wedenesday December 10, Folsom Lake water level was at 326,481 acre feet, about 1/3 of the lake’s total capacity.
This is about 100,000 acre feet more than the same time last year, and with today’s storm lingering over the region, it will be interesting to see how it looks in a couple of days.
We can’t declare the drought 0ver, but it sure is good to get some water back in there.
Folsom CA: February rain, snow and resulting runoff has brought Folsom lake to 40% of capacity, still far below average for this time of year, but enough that the 5 miler per hour boat speed limit has been lifted.
With no rain in sight, however, community water restrictions are still in effect.
Check with your water district to be clear.
Mandatory water use restrictions for businesses and residences limit landscape watering to two designated days per week; prohibit washing of parking lots, street, driveways or sidewalks; and prohibit use of City water for construction purposes without approval.
City officials are slashing water usage for Landscape and Lighting districts, local parks and City property, and will continue to monitor and correct any overflow problems on public property.
