San Luis Reservoir in Pacheco Pass CA is very low


The San Luis Reservoir stores water for San Jose and other cities and also provides hydropower. As you can see, it is very low. In a normal year, the water would probably be 50 feet higher.  A farmer’s pond on the way to it was mostly full two months ago. Today it was dry. The San Luis Reservoir is on  CA-152 between I-5 and CA-101 at Gilroy.

Yeah, yeah, I know, it should be in landscape mode but hey, it was 110 and I hiked up a steep hill in sandals to take it!
