Reservoir Storage Conditions

Postby ERIC » Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:47 am

From this Fresno Bee article dated June 15th: http://www.fresnobee.com/2013/06/15/334 ... rylink=cpy

Here's a closer look at the five most popular recreation lakes. All storage estimates are based on forecast inflows and temperatures.

Huntington: The lake is 97% full and should stay at near capacity before dipping to 85% on Sept. 1 and 35% by Oct. 1.

Shaver: Water levels are expected to hover around 60% capacity for the remainder of the year.

Edison: The good news is that water levels are exceeding projections. The bad news is they're expected to drop to about 20% on Aug. 1 before going down to below 6% by Oct. 1.

Florence: Currently more than 95% full but will drop to 50% by Aug. 1, 32% by Sept. 1 and 6% by Oct. 1.

Mammoth Pool: Expected to be at 90% capacity or higher through Aug. 1 before dropping to 33% by Sept. 1.

That picture kind of shows what's gonna happen this year.


I guess at least, it's being managed as best it can.
