Plenty Of Snowpack, Plenty Of Water Expected

Sponsored by:

With winter still officially a few days away, state hydrologists say the Sierra Nevada already has accumulated half the snow the region normally gets in the wet weather season.

Local water supply managers say this could mean a healthy supply of water stored in the Sierra Nevada snowpack.

The mountain range´s snowpack is the source of two-thirds of California´s water for cities, farms and recreational uses.
