California's drought declaration nears end

The drought declaration put in place three years ago will be lifted Wednesday after the state conducts its final snow survey. After winter downpours, the state's reservoirs are at high levels.

From the L.A.Times:

Gov. Jerry Brown is about to make official what a winter of downpours and rising reservoir levels have already made obvious: California's drought is over.

Brown is expected to lift the state's 3-year-old drought declaration Wednesday, when the next snow survey is conducted.

In a statement released Monday, the governor's office said it "is waiting for the season's final snow survey later this week to officially rescind the previous administration's drought declaration. While this season's surplus of rain and strong snowpack has clearly ended the dry spell for now, it is critical that Californians continue to conserve water."
