Folsom Lake Daily Status, 11/30/2015
  Current Storage is 136,980 acre feet, 14.0% full. 5-day average depletion is 138 acre feet daily.
Current Lake Level is 349.16 feet.  5-day average drop is 0.05 foot daily.
This is another new record low.
Prior to this year the record low was 140,600 acre feet in 1977.
Folsom Lake level currently is about 6 feet above the inlets of EID's permanent pumps.
Tall folks could stand on the inlets and breathe air.
Rains that began in early November probably will initiate increases in lake storage by early December. At this date reductions in the storage depletion rate are due to dam operations management to reduce outflow.

Key storage levels are  ~117,000 acre feet of storage, 343 feet elevation for EID's permanent pump inlets.
                                           ~90,000 acre feet storage:  Folsom Lake would reach dead pool state (outflow impossible).

Mather Airport Mather Airport air cargo noise hoax

The public outcry in El Dorado Hills and Folsom is nonsense:
It has nothing to do with reality, which is "rirght out there in plain (plane) sight. It's a campaign of artificial outrage manufactured by a group now organized as CRMA, Communities for a Responsible Mather Airport.

This is a new section, under construction beginning June, 2015.
It replaces the prior three sections on the same topic, which
dated from 2003, 2008, and 2012. The new section is briefer but includes substantial sections for noise data and reference documents.
