As of Thursday, Dec. 12, the Thompson Reservoir water level measured 399 acre feet. Stage 2 (gallon by gallon) water rationing becomes mandatory for individuals and businesses when the water level drops to 300 acre feet. Unless the Avalon area of Santa Catalina Island gets a lot of rain within a short period of time, the water level is likely to drop down to 300 acre feet early next year.
