December 22, 2020

With the lack of sustained, productive rainfall so far this season, Lake Sonoma and Lake Mendocino are both below average. The past 3 years were all record dry years and so far this season we are pushed even further below the curve. Compared to 2019 at this time, Lake Sonoma is behind by 16% with 160,000 acre feet of storage compared to 190,000 a year ago and Lake Mendocino is behind by 47%. with 30,000 acre feet compared to 57,000.
