Snowpack is a crucial component of California’s water supply. While heavy winter or spring rains can bring replenishment to streams, rivers, and reservoirs snowpack levels also have a significant impact on water storage and supply. In spring months, long after rains have ceased, warm weather melts snowpack, replenishing reservoirs and rivers.
As expected for the summer months, the state snowpack is all but gone. However, this year’s abundant snowfall has left most of the major reservoirs at high and healthy levels! Check out major reservoirs level on our Reservoir page.
