Sacramento, Ca — The California Department of Water Resources has conducted its fifth and final snow survey for the 2006-07 season.

Statewide, snowfall is at 29% of normal for this time of year. The Northern Sierra is at 27%, the Central Sierra is 33% and the Southern Sierra is 29%.

“Now more than ever, we need to support the Governor´s Strategic Growth Plan,” says DWR Director Lester Snow.It will allow us to address this critical need for additional surface and groundwater storage, conservation and Delta preservation to cope with California´s population growth.”

Recently, water districts in Tuolumne County, Calaveras County and Groveland began implementing voluntary water restrictions for the coming months.
