Central Sierra runoff delivered over 13.19 million acre/ft of snowmelt this past water year ending in September. That’s the arithmetic counting the snowmelt from the five major rivers from north to south-from the San Joaquin River down to the Kern near Bakersfield. For some of these watersheds like the Kings River it was the wettest year ever at 4.5 mil af. The Tulare Basin’s four rivers – Kings / Kaweah /Tule /Kern are just a few drops short of the 1983 record number with a combined runoff of a gushing 8.69 million acre/ feet. That’s what 31 atmospheric rivers that drenched California will do.
