The latest series of winter storms is having an impact in California, and it’s starting to show.
Bureau of Reclamation officials report as of December 1, Folsom Lake has risen 19 feet.
Luis Moore, a Bureau of Reclamation spokesman, said while the amount of water is good, this time of year is also known as being a flood season.
With so much water collecting at the lake, Moore notes water management will be important to maintain a safe amount of space within the lake.
Since the weekend increase, the amount of water released from Folsom Lake rose from 2,400 cubic feet per second to 3,500 CFS, Moore said.
Moore added Folsom Lake is currently receiving about 30,000 CFS.
