The snowpack statewide was 125 percent of normal. SANTA CLARITA – The Castaic Lake Water Agency said it will receive its full allotment of water from the State Water Project this year for the first time in seven years due to record rainfall in Northern California. The agency overseeing the valley’s annual California Aqueduct allocations said it will receive 95,200 acre-feet of water from the state Department of Water Resources. An acre-foot is 326,000 gallons – enough to serve about two households a year. Last year’s allocation was 90 percent. The allotments make up more than half of the valley’s annual supply – estimated at 148,000 acre-feet this year, the agency said. The projected demand was 91,500 acre-feet. last_img
