New: Daily Web Updates on Reservoir Levels

Posted on April 29, 2015 at 11:35 AM by Ann Vallee

Reservoir levels, water use, and rainfall figures are now updated daily instead of weekly on our website. In addition, we have added the following new data fields: water supply source (reservoirs and Russian River), creek releases, and temperature.

Visit our Water Watch page for the latest updates.

Here are today's water statistics:

Reservoir Levels: As of April 28, reservoir storage is 72,903 acre-feet,* or 92% of capacity. The average for this date is 72,109 acre-feet, or 91% of capacity.   

Rainfall: Rainfall this year to date (July 1, 2014 - April 28, 2015) is 39.62 inches. Average for the same period is 50.32 inches; last year on this date we had 33.22 inches.

Water Use: Water use for the week of April 21-27 averaged 19.67 million gallons per day, down from 20.07 million gallons per day for the same week last year.

Creek Releases: During the month of March 2015 MMWD released 616 million gallons, or 1,890 acre-feet, into Lagunitas and Walker creeks in west Marin for habitat enhancement.  

*One acre-foot is 325,851 gallons
