FORT JONES, Calif. -- The Scott River watershed is still well below average.

That's according to the latest Klamath National Forest April snow surveys. However, they also show the snow pack isn't as sparse as it was earlier in the winter.

Snow surveys are done between February and May. Forest Service employees travel to different sites along the Scott River headwaters.

The newest of these sites -- Scott Mountain -- has been monitored for 32 years. The oldest site at Middle Boulder has been monitored for 72 years.

The measurements help the State forecast the amount of water available for agriculture, power generation, recreation, and stream flow releases later in the year.
