California Drought Woes Continue…| The Sacramento Bee
Folsom Lake is losing more than a billion gallons of water each day. Lake levels will likely fall to historic lows by summer’s end, testing the reliability of a water supply that once seemed invulnerable.The region’s top water officials say they are ready: Scared, but prepared. They have imposed significant, mandatory water-use rules on their customers. Water districts closest to the lake are connecting their systems with those that don’t depend on it for a water supply. Several have dug wells and installed pumps to improve their access to groundwater.
