Reservoir Critically Low

Reservoir Critically Low

August 5, 2013

Dry Signs of the Times

The San Luis Reservoir is at nearly record lows; the photo was taken on August 2, 2013. This water deficit is due, in part, to less than average rainfall and snow during the last winter, but also because of an environmental release to the ocean of 800,000 acre-feet of water also during the winter.

The total capacity of San Luis Reservoir is 2,041,000 acre-feet.
