Another Above-Average Snowpack Improves Water Supply

  • Following the final snow surveys for the 2023/24 winter season, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) announced on April 11 that the Eastern Sierra snowpack measured 103% of normal.
  • This year’s snowpack this, while initially underwhelming compared to the record-breaking measurements in 2023, increased significantly in February and March and ended up exceeding expectations with above-normal conditions.
  • Snow surveys gauge snow amounts and water content of the snow by taking real-time measurements of snow course depth and water content. The collected data is crucial for calculating spring and summer water runoff and water supply projections from the Los Angeles Aqueduct. A typical runoff season lasts anywhere from May to June.
