Folsom, CA – With changing drought conditions, the State Water Resources Control Board approved a resolution that removes its mandatory conservation mandates and allows water agencies to set conservation targets based on local supply and demand. Effective immediately, the City of Folsom is moving from a Stage 3 to Stage 1 conservation level, removing restrictions on day of the week watering.
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.
