California

Despite heavy rainfall in January, an above-average snowpack and rising reservoirs in many areas, the California State Water Resources Control Board recently approved an 8-month extension of existing drought-related emergency regulations. Reservoir storage generally remains below-average and very significant groundwater shortages continue. One-class improvements were seen in the northeastern and northwestern portions of the state the week of February 2-9.
