  • Let the Water Flow
    Thursday, April 15, 2021 1:00 AM
    During this time of year, it is beautiful to look from the valley up and out to the mountains and see them covered in white. As desert dwellers, we find comfort knowing that the snow in the mountains is the source of our water. The snow that melts off each spring provides essential runoff to streams and reservoirs, while snow in the valley melts and recharges ground-water aquifers. Did you know that the snowpack is carefully monitored and used for water predictions by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)? The NRCS provides snowpack data and streamflow forecasts to help with water supply management, flood control, recreation, climate modeling, and conservation planning.
