With the wet weather bombarding the Sierra mountains this winter, the Eastern Sierra snowpack has blown passed the 2017 peak of 51.8 inches (the wettest year in the last 50 years) and is approaching an all-time record. As of March 28, the water content in the Eastern Sierra snowpack was measured at 64.4 inches, which is 285% of a normal
April 1st snowpack, and inching closer to the historic record peak estimated at 66 inches in 1969.
With the supply conditions significantly improved throughout the state, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) has lifted water restrictions for LADWP along with five other agencies in Los Angeles, Ventura and San Bernardino counties. As a result, LADWP has recommended to Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass to transition back to three days a week for outdoor watering rather than two, which is consistent with Level 2 of the City of Los Angeles' Water Shortage Contingency Plan for anticipated level of water supply. The return to allowing three days a week watering would take effect immediately upon approval by the Mayor and concurrence by the City Council.
