Finally! Marin County's final holdout, the Nicasio Reservoir, is now full thanks to early storms in March. Nicasio joins the other Marin reservoirs: Lagunitas, Bon Tempe, Alpine, Kent, Phoenix and Soulajule, all of which have now hit capacity.
The district's reservoirs are known to reach capacity even in drought conditions due to the fact that they are significantly smaller than our state's largest reservoirs. But, due to California's four-year drought, the last time Marin's reservoirs were at capacity was December 2014.

Despite current rainstorms and with only a few weeks left in the rainy season, Marin residents have still been advised to conserve water.
"Any one year isn't going to make or break a four-year drought," Drew McIntyre, the district's chief engineer stated. "No matter how much it rains, we still need to conserve because we don't know what will happen next year."
