SRP: Runoff refills reservoirs to previous level

Lake MeadThe water district that supplies much of the Phoenix area’s water supply says snowmelt produced enough runoff to refill Salt and Verde river reservoirs to near the levels before the year’s period of heaviest use.

Water Resource Operations Manager Charlie Ester says that means the Salt River Project has regained all the water its customers used last year.

SRP says the reservoirs on the two rivers are now 55 percent full. That’s the same percentage as a year ago.
