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.

The Thompson Reservoir water level, as of today, Friday, Aug. 23, is 451 acre feet deep. Water rationing begins when the water level reaches 300 acre feet.
