Water Storage Less Than Last Year

Jackson Lake

With the end of May just days away, water reserves are low, but compare well with last year.  According to the Natural Resource Conservation Service, the state average snow-water levels in the river drainages average 56% of state median compared with 43% last year at this time.  However, even though Grassy Lake Reservoir is reported to be 101% of its capacity and Jackson Lake is 94% filled, Palisades is still only 44% filled and the Upper Snake River System as a whole is only 72% full.  Last year at this time, the system was at 86% of its capacity.  Forecasts for stream-flows in the summer ahead show Jackson Hole and Yellowstone will see 90 to 100% of the norm while it will be 70 to 90% of normal just west of the Tetons and 50 to 70% or normal along the Snake River Plain.
