With Winter on the Way, Most of California’s Water Reservoirs Are Looking Good

California’s wettest months of the year are still to come, but the state’s largest water reservoirs already appear to be in decent shape. As of Nov. 27, most of California’s major reservoirs were above their historical averages for this time of year, according to the Department of Water Resources. The reservoirs received a significant boost during the 2017 water year, one of the wettest on record following a five-year dry spell. Several major reservoirs, such as Northern California’s Shasta, Folsom and Trinity, were above 60 percent of their total capacity.
