Heavy snowmelt to fill Millerton lake

News

The Central Valley is expecting warmer temperatures and the Bureau of Reclamation is getting ready to receive snowmelt that will be filling its watersheds.

Water levels at Millerton Lake are low as some spots of the lake are just low. 

Michael Jackson, area manager told Your Central Valley, they had to make room for more water. 

“We’ve issued out blocks of water, largely to the agriculture farmer contractors that we have on the Friant system. An they are taking all they can in large part to recharge the water which took a big hit with the drought.” 

Jackson said water levels at the lake have increased and they’re only go up

“This year it’s a good thing. It means we have some good snow up in the mountains that has just begin to melt.”

Jackson expects the lake to be near capacity by the beginning of June.
