According to Southern California Edison, as of today, Friday, Jan. 20, “current water elevation in the Middle Ranch Reservoir is 636.0 feet above sea level.  This equates to a storage capacity of 137 acre-feet.”


That was a 4 acre foot increase from the Jan. 12 measurement, which was a 2 acre foot increase from the Jan. 5 measurement.


Catalina is currently in Stage 3 water rationing. The summer visitor season, which is vital the the Island’s economy, just months away. It is unlikely that the water level will rise to the Stage 2 level by the time the summer season starts.
