Reservoir Levels Benefit from Conservation

Posted on October 19, 2015 at 2:45 PM by Ann Vallee

Reservoir storage continues to stay above average thanks to customer conservation efforts. Our sincere thanks go to all district customers for their ongoing reductions in water use.

Visit our Water Watch page for daily water use updates and our Drought Information page for drought news.

Here are the latest water statistics:

Reservoir Levels: As of October 18, reservoir storage is 54,891 acre-feet,* or 69% of capacity. The average for this date is 52,844 acre-feet, or 66% of capacity.    

Rainfall: Rainfall this year to date (July 1 - October 18, 2015) is 0.81 inches. Average for the same period is 2.23 inches; last year on this date we had 1.12 inches.

Water Use: Water use for the week ending October 18 averaged 22.65 million gallons per day, up from 21.99 million gallons per day for the same week last year.

*One acre-foot is 325,851 gallons
