city of Sierra Madre) To date we have 
received an average of 23.67” of rain 
from our 3 rain stations.

 Sierra Madre has received above 
normal rainfall this season but the 
drought is NOT over. Recent rainfall 
has helped in countering past seasons 
but it will take several years of above 
normal rainfall to get us out of this 

 With increased conservation efforts, 
recent rain runoff, the water spread 
in our spreading grounds for basin 
recharge from both Big Santa Anita 
Dam and our local Sierra Madre Dam 
we are headed in the right direction.

 Rain is still in the forecast so be 
sure to get your free sand bags at the 
City Maintenance Yard located at 
621 Sierra Madre Blvd. , behind the 
basketball courts. Please bring your 
own shovel.
