The B120 report for February came out today, and it predicts that the "Unimpaired Runoff" above Folsom Reservoir will be 2.245 MAF (million acre-feet).  This translates to a Below Normal water year type for February through early March. 

What this means is that we will continue to get Saturday and Sunday releases, from 9AM until noon, until the end of February.  Then, from March 1 onward, there will be scheduled releases every day except Wednesday.

The Below Normal designation will persist at least until the next B120 bulletin comes out, around March 10.  Check back then for an update.

The scheduled release page assumes a Below Normal water year type through the end of March (but that could change, see previous para, so check back later).

The B120 report for March came out today, and it predicts that the "Unimpaired Runoff" above Folsom Reservoir will be 3.710 MAF (million acre-feet).  This translates to a Wet water year type.  The new designation will go into effect Monday, March11, and continue through early April.

What this means in detail is that, from Monday, there will be a scheduled release every day.  During the week releases will be 1500 cfs from 9am to noon, while weekends will be 1750 cfs from 7am to 1pm.

The Wet designation will persist at least until the next B120 bulletin comes out, around April 10.  Check back then for an update.

The scheduled release page assumes a Wet water year type through the end of April (but that could change, see previous para, so check back later).

The B120 report for April came out Tuesday, and it predicts that the "Unimpaired Runoff" above Folsom Reservoir will be 3.95 MAF (million acre-feet), which is slightly more than last month.  The result is that the water year type continues to be Wet.

The Wet designation will persist at least until the next B120 bulletin comes out, around May 10.  Check back then for an update.

The scheduled release page assumes a Wet water year type through the end of May (but that could change, see previous para, so check back later).

The B120 report for May came out today, and it predicts that the "Unimpaired Runoff" above Folsom Reservoir will be 3.91 MAF (million acre-feet), which is essentially the same as last month.  The result is that the water year type continues to be Wet.

Is it expected that the Wet designation will persist until the next B120 report comes out, around Feb 8, 2020.

Consequently, the scheduled release page will be updated soon to reflect a Wet water year type through early February next year.  Happy paddling!
