1.19.22 Water Use Limits and Penalties Lifted After Winter Rain Replenishes Reservoirs

The Marin Water Board of Directors repealed customer water-use limits and associated penalties on Tuesday. The decision was a result of significant winter rainfall that restocked local reservoirs from historic low levels in the summer and early fall to near-full capacity by end of 2021.

Coho spawning activity in the Lagunitas Creek watershed seems to have hit a peak recently, with 72 new redds (gravel nests) observed last week and only 18 this week. We saw all these redds in Lagunitas’ two main tributaries, San Geronimo Creek and Devil’s Gulch.
