Crescenta Valley Rainfall Exceeds Annual Average
Last weekend’s storm dropped 3.04 inches of rain at the Crescenta Valley Water District (District) office on Foothill Boulevard. This brings the season total to 23.47 inches, exceeding the annual average of 22.66 inches for the first time in 6 years. This precipitation will result in improvements to local groundwater levels, but will take several months to reach the District’s groundwater wells. Statewide the water supply improvements are even more dramatic. Northern Sierra precipitation exceeds the wettest year on record by 25 inches and snowpack is 30% above average. As a result, imported water supplies will be adequate to meet projected demands and additional water is being stored in regional reservoirs.
The District continues to monitor and evaluate the local and imported water supply improvements and will make appropriate changes to the water conservation alert level in the near future.
