According to KQED, “After our non-super El Niño winter, the surface water supply has mostly recovered. The biggest reservoirs, Shasta Lake and Lake Oroville, are better than 90 percent full and over 100 percent of their normal storage for this time of year. Folsom Lake, at the very edge of the foothills on the American River east of Sacramento, is about 85 percent full and more than 100 percent of average. (Statewide, the California Department of Water Resources says, the state’s biggest reservoirs are at a collective total of about 87 percent of average.)”
Was Donald Trump right? Is the drought over?
The truth is that while there was enough rain and snow in Northern California, Central and Southern California did not get much rain and their reservoirs remain below normal.
For some the drought might be over, but not for the other 2/3rd of the state.
