Lake Sonoma is at least 30% silted so much lower water availability. Hydrologists have been warning the county for years we don’t have the water you think…..
“Lake Sonoma had 154,729 acre-feet of water at last check, or about 63% of its storage capacity for this time of year, while Lake Mendocino, the smaller of the two, had about 45% of its targeted storage, or about 36,000 acre-feet.”
