Santa Margarita Lake spills over
Things seem to have settled down after a stormy winter, but San Luis Obispo-area reservoirs are still seeing the impacts of winter weather that toppled trees, flooded roads and caused above-average rainfall.
Santa Margarita Lake is at a little more than full capacity, and Lake Nacimiento is at 86 percent—lower than they were in late February, but still high.
Though it’s sunny and the weather has been warming up, PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey says wet weather could return to the Central Coast by March 22.
Here’s a look at San Luis Obispo County reservoir levels, as of Sunday, March 12, 2017:
