As the dry winter goes on, CSD asks your help

| Filed under

Water

Rancho Murieta stores water in reservoirs during the wet season and uses the water during the dry season. Current Lake Calero levels reflect the community's water use since diversions from the Cosumnes River ended in May.  Even at lower levels, the lake still offers recreation and fishing on a warm winter Saturday.

In response to the dry winter, the Community Services District issued a water update Friday. The CSD says the community’s reservoirs are 70 percent full, but water diversions into the reservoirs haven’t started yet because the Cosumnes River flow isn’t high enough. There’s enough winter left to catch up with reservoir levels, the CSD says, but you’re asked to help by using water wisely. Read more » about As the dry winter goes on, CSD asks your help
