Rains over the past few days have helped East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) water reservoirs in the midst of a severe drought.

Daily water reports from the district’s website – the district supplies water to Alameda and much of the East Bay – show that, as of Saturday morning, at Camp Pardee, near the South Spillway of the Pardee Reservoir in Amador County, precipitation had reached 101 percent of the season-to-date average.

The reservoir was 84 percent full and up to 166,370 acre-feet of water.

Total EBMUD water storage across the Pardee, Comanche, Briones, Chabot, Lafayette, San Pablo and Upper San Leandro Reservoirs was at 54 percent of capacity, up from 53 percent on Thursday.

The Chabot reservoir was 73 percent full on Saturday, up from 72 percent of capacity on Thursday.

Precipitation at EBMUD’s Orinda Water Treatment Plant was at 106 percent of the season-to-date average, compared to 97 percent on Thursday.

However, the National Weather Service seven-day forecast for the East Bay, and Jackson, California, in the heart of the Mokelumne watershed, which feeds the Pardee and Comanche reservoirs, is for clear skies.
