15 Feet Added to Folsom Lake After Weekend Storms
Folsom Lake has risen about 15 feet in just four days of rain, and continues to increase as showers linger into Monday morning. That’s according to preliminary data recorded by sensors on the lake.
The increase may be hard to see with the naked eye, but puddles around the lake on the western edge, and streams near Browns Ravine have taken over what has been a dry, barren landscape.
The water level is around 372-feet, still well below the average for this time of year. Folsom Lake is at 22% capacity, normally in February it’s at 41% of capacity.
The lake level continued to rise through Monday morning, as rain showers slowly moved out of the area.
Water officials maintain we’ll need a few more storms like this past weekend to get the lake back to normal levels.
