Trinity Lake Report
1/25/15 - The lake is inching up to 2,239' (down 131'). It is looking dry for at least the next couple weeks.
The lake is up 45' since low water on Nov 21, and the top of the lake has
moved north from just south of East Fork to opposite the outlet of Swift Creek.
One year ago the lake was at 2,272', or some 33' higher than it is today. The lake was dropping in
January 2014. We measured virtually zero rain
in December 2013, with a total of 4.5" from July 1 through the end of 2013. This rain year, we have some 23"
at the airport for the first 6 months through the end of December 2014, and we have already exceeded last year's total rainfall.
Last year, our lake peaked at 2,286', down 84'. So we have to come up another 47' just to reach last
spring's high water mark. But the paved Trinity Center ramp is usable down to about 2,295' (down 75').
To get Trinity Center ramp just barely in the water, we need to come up another 56'.
Considering we have had some 24" of rain so far this rain year (since July 1) with dwindling snow
in the Alps (already melting), and that brought us up 45',
we may need another 25"+ of rain/snowmelt to get our ramp in the water. Keep praying for rain!.
Trinity County Code Enforcement
Here are a few quick links to documents on the Trinity County website:
Bay Delta Conservation Plan and Delta Tunnels
as more people become aware of the Governor's proposal to divert Northern Calif water south through
two 32-foot diameter tunnels under the Delta. You can read much about this plan on our Stop
the Tunnels page. Below are some recent articles and news:
