    I think I'll fall short of my 40% guess.I anticipated more snow melt when it warmed up.it was 34% last night ,Probably end up with 36% by the 1st.

    Helluva lot better than 3% in 01/02 and when this thread started it was around 17%.

    Its snowing now every inch we get helps,than of course at least an average rainfall in March and April.

    Re: the drought that wont end

    With the rain and snow melt 2 days ago the Reservoirs had another nice inflow of water, still coming in above average.Walton is still coming in around 1600 cfs (Into Cannonsville) East Branch inflow into Pepacton is still coming at 857 cfs. Need more snow though.

    http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/html/dri...els_wide.shtml

    2 months ago the Cannonsville was at 17% now AT 41.5% Total capacity for all reservoirs are now at 69% the norm is 87%

    Great news.The Cannonsville has tripled since the Post started.

    Current storage is important, however under FFMP they only use the Pepacton,Cannonsville, and Neversink to dictate releases.That right now is about 63%. Unfortunately they do not include the Rondout and the Croton.

    We're going in the right direction though!

    Combined storage related to FFMP (Pepacton,Cannonsville, and Neversink) in now at 70%.

    Many areas around the reservoirs got about 8-10 inches a few days ago, and it appears there is another 6-10 on the way Sunday into Monday.

    Cannonsville is at 61% with an inflow of 800 CFS.

    Looking good.

    Re: the drought that wont end

    Walton is coming in at 2450 CFS which is the inflow to the Cannonsville Reservoir. https://waterdata.usgs.gov/ny/nwis/u...cd=00065,00060 This is from all snow melt from the warm spell we have had.

    Margaretville is coming into the Pepacton Reservoir at 1600 CFS https://waterdata.usgs.gov/ny/nwis/u...cd=00065,00060

    Right now the Cannonsville is at 70% the Pepacton is at 76.7% and the Neversink is at 80%

    http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/html/dri...els_wide.shtml

    With the inflows we have, a little snow left, and the rain expected today we should have a big jump this week in Reservoir capacity.It is possible to be at 80% in the Cannonsville by this time next week.

    Now we just need an average rainfall in March and April and the Reservoirs would fill to max capacity.About every inch of rain equals about 5% in the Cannonsville.I'm being optimistic and hoping for a spill.


    We are at the 20 Yard line.
