Update on the Drought
Year to date, we've only gained 0.21 inches in the reservoirs. The last storm gave us 0.04 inches. That’s only FOUR HUNDREDTHS of an inch.
It will take many years of above average rainfall to replenish our aquifers.
Average rainfall over the past 22 years is 21 inches. Last year, 2015-2016, we had 12 inches.
