Governor Jerry Brown is expected to make the announcement of California's drought coming to an end sometime today, once the state’s final snow survey is completed.
The heavier amounts of snow and rain over the winter and early spring seasons has given the Golden State reservoirs a boost with higher water levels; especially the Sierra Nevada snowpack. The governor’s office is still saying that it’s critical to keep the practice of conserving water.
State officials wanted the reservoir areas to recover before supporting the announcement of the drought’s conclusion. This despite good hydrological numbers from last year.
