Folsom Lake is headed for a record low level, and for the first time in its 60 year history there's genuine worry the level could drop below the seven-foot diameter pipe that provides drinking water to 200,000 people.
Let's start with the good news: as bad as Folsom Lake looks today, current projections show it may not go as low as the Bureau of Reclamation thought it might just a couple of months ago.
"It's not as bad as we estimated it could be in a worst-case scenario, yes. But it's still very dry," Shane Hunt with the Bureau of Reclamation.
And that's the bad news: Folsom Lake still appears to be headed to a record-low level.
When full, the lake level stands at 466 feet above sea level. On Thursday, it was at 363 feet.
