Cottage Grove Reservoir's low water
Cottage Grove Reservoir is 24% full, which is 76% less than what it should be as of Aug. 2, 2021 (photo taken July 20). Nearly 50 days without measurable rain, combined with hot, dry conditions, has made reservoir levels in the Willamette Valley the lowest in six years. Additionally, forecasts are not predicting enough precipitation to alleviate the ongoing drought in the Pacific Northwest.
