While NID water storage levels remain near average for this time of year, this year’s dry winter has not produced a snow-pack that will refill them in spring and summer.  As of Thursday, district reservoirs are at 92 percent of average for the date but just 59 percent of capacity.

Scherzinger said district officials are hoping for the best but planning for the worst. The months of January, February and March – and in recent years April and May -have been among the wettest recorded in the region, so it remains possible that normal rain and snow patterns will return soon.
