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.
Snowpack levels are at the highest the state has seen in years. This healthy snowpack will be an important source of water through the drier summer months.
