March 2023 Snow Survey

On March 3, 2023, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) will conduct the third Phillips Station snow survey of the season. Join DWR staff via Facebook Live and YouTube Live as they measure water content in the snowpack, a key indicator for water supply.


The Phillips Station snow course is one of more than 260 snow courses across the Sierra Nevada that DWR manually or electronically measures each winter and early spring. Data collected from the Snow Surveys Program is critical to helping forecast the amount of water that will melt and run off to state reservoirs.


Sean de Guzman, DWR Snow Survey and Water Supply Forecast Section Manager, will conduct the snow survey.
