From the Chico Enterprise-Record – As the calendar prepares to turn into 2022, Northern California is getting covered with snow, and rainfall in Butte County is leading to more water in Lake Oroville. As of midnight Tuesday, Lake Oroville had 1,323,897 acre-feet of water in it. While that number is 37% of the lake’s capacity, it also reflects 72% of its average storage his time of year. In fact last year at the same time Lake Oroville had 1,239,891 acres feet of water. While Oroville is faring better, Shasta Lake is still behind last year’s acre-feet number of 2,028,514 acre-feet having 1,311,354 acre-feet in it. Shasta is just 29% of its capacity. But perhaps no lake is doing as well as Folsom, which is currently at 144% of its average storage for this time of year with 574,639 acre-feet of water in the lake. It is nearly 60% full. (more)
