Drought Watch: Reservoirs Starting to Rise

After falling for months, water storage in local reservoirs is finally starting to rise, although there is still a long way to go to undo the damage of four consecutive drought years.
A series of El Nino-driven storms has 2016 off to a wet start, but water conditions at Yuba County’s Largest reservoir, New Bullards Bar, are still drier than a year ago, said Curt Aikens, general manager for the Yuba County Water Agency.
