SACRAMENTO (KCBS)— There’s rain on the way in the Bay Area’s forecast, but experts say it won’t be enough to end California’s historic drought. The latest measurements show that the state’s reservoirs remain at alarmingly low levels.
Doug Carlson with the State Department of Water Resources said it’s a case of too little, too late, even if this last gasp of wet weather is expected to shower the area on and off for the next week or so.
“All of California’s major reservoirs are still far below their historic average and even further below their capacities. For instance, Lake Shasta, which is the state’s largest reservoir, is at 46 percent of capacity today and 58 percent of the historic average,” Carlson said.
