New Melones Reservoir Reaches 80 Percent Capacity

New Melones Reservoir Reaches 80 Percent Capacity 

New Melones Reservoir has reached 100 percent of their seasonal average for the first time since late April in 2012-13 water-year. According to reports, currently the lake is at 80 percent of its 2,400,000 acre-feet total capacity. New Melones has only filled up completely once, in 1982-1983, the state’s wettest water-year on record. Experts don’t expect that to happen this year, given how late it is in the season and the fact that water demands downstream are increasing.
