All reservoir lakes remain at their respective winter set dam configuration.
Water levels on the lakes in general are below average and are levelling off
after the recent rain on snow event.Flows on the Gull and Burnt Rivers are
near average for this time of year and will likely increase with the rainfall
and warm temperatures.Current snowpack is measured to be above average for
this time of the year.
