Workshop details are listed on the program webpage.
The Department of Water Resources has released the Draft Flood Emergency Response Projects - Statewide Grant Round 3 Guidelines and Proposal Solicitation Package (PSP) for a 30-day public review and comment period.
SACRAMENTO - The Department of Water Resources (DWR) conducts five manual snow surveys at Phillips Station in the Sierra Nevada from around the first of January through May each calendar year.
The snowpack's water content usually peaks around April 1, after which the sun's higher position in the sky contributes to rapid melting and a diminished snowpack.
Measurements at Phillips Station revealed a snow water equivalent (SWE) of 0.4 inches, 3 percent of the average SWE of 11.3 inches in early January at Phillips as measured there since 1964 ( Fi V).
SWE is the depth of water that theoretically would result if the entire snowpack melted instantaneously.
Oroville, California - The Department of Water Resources (DWR) continues to increase flows to the Feather River.
With inflows ranging from approximately 14,000 to 20,000 cubic feet per second (cfs), Lake Oroville has risen to 861.5 feet elevation.
The survey will determine the water content of the snow at Phillips.A synopsis of statewide water conditions has been updated on CDEC as of December 31, 2017.This product is updated mid-month, for conditions at the beginning of the month.The flood control spillway flows remain at 0 cubic feet per second (cfs).Inflows are approximately 14,000 to 20,000 cfs which has resulted in the lake rising from 860.9 feet to 861.4 feet elevation in the last 24 hours.
