Colorado Snowpack Way Below Normal

Colorado's snowpack has dropped to 72 percent of normal and time is running out to make up the difference.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service, a federal agency that tracks the levels, says the below-average snowpack is producing a bleak water-supply outlook for this year.

According to the Aspen Times, current stream flow forecasts continue to point to well-below normal runoff in all the major river basins in Colorado.

At the beginning of this year, 30 of Colorado's 64 counties were designated as primary natural disaster areas due to severe drought and heat, making farmers and ranchers eligible for low-interest emergency loans from the Farm Service Agency.
