A bicyclist rides along the Riverfront Trail east of Riverside as black clouds from a threatening rainstorm move into the valley from the Uncompahgre Plateau on Friday. Recent wet weather has helped fill the reserves of Lake Powell and Lake Mead.


Recent sloshy weather puts levels above last year

Lake Powell wrapped up the water year nearly 500,000 acre-feet more full of Colorado River water than it did last year.
