Snowpack Update

The National Resources Conservation Service May 14, 2013 Snowpack Update lists the Colorado statewide snowpack at 83% of average.  The South Platte basin has the State’s highest snowpack at 119% of average, while the Upper Rio Grande basin has the lowest snowpack at 28% of average.  Some water providers in the South Platte and Colorado River basins remain cautious despite increases in snowpack caused by spring snows, and Denver Water has continued its Stage 2 drought restrictions declared on April 1, 2013.
