That's going to recharge that aquifer.

The San Joaquin was only ~3 feet from the levee top at hwy 132 when I passed by yesterday on the way home from Yosemite. TID stopped releasing water over the Don Pedro spillway this morning due to stress on the levees downstream as requested by the US Army Corp of Engineers so levels should go down some. The Pedro reservoir is currently at 828.3 feet (830 is full). TID continues to release through the powerhouse and may resume spillway releases in the future. (See ModBee or Manteca Bulletin for more info.)

My understanding is that it takes many years for the water to get down into the aquifer.

True. But that's a good start. Some aquifers cannot be recharged to their predrought levels because of land subsidence. Some areas of the San Joaquin Valley have sank more than 28 feet.

I wonder if Tulare Lake in Kings County (near Kettleman City) is being recreated.
