Right now, water supply indicators are still near normal for Georgetown Lake and the Flint Creek basin. Snow Water Equivalent today is at 102%, while total water year precipitation sits at 113% of normal (Warm Springs and Peterson Meadows composite).


The lake gained 208 acre feet over the month of March, which is 3.4 cfs over and above outflow. Outflow for March averaged 24.7 cfs, so calculated inputs for March averaged 28 cfs. This is 101% of the long term average for inputs through the lake system. The lake level for March 31 was 6428.77 feet which is exactly the same as the 1999-2017 average. Everything is right on target at this time.


The NRCS has issued it’s early April Water Supply Outlook. Based on accumulated snow and precipitation data from late March/early April, the best-estimate right now (50% chance of exceedance) is for 97% of normal flow volume for Flint Creek near Southern Cross (gauge site below the dam).


There will be two more Water Supply Outlooks published this year, and the long term average snowpack peak occurs in late April or early May in the basin. Typical peak inflows to the lake occur in mid-May. The Weather Service forecast for the lake area this week shows good chances of snow showers on almost all days.
