From the Boulder Daily Camera (Ryan Morgan):

The city of Boulder won’t put watering restrictions in place this summer, thanks to abundant late-spring showers that have built up the mountain snowpack that supplies the city with water.

As recently as March, snowpack levels were “significantly” below average. But measurements taken on May 1 show that April’s showers built up the snowpack to between 94 percent and 119 percent of average levels. The rain and snow have also helped keep water levels in the city’s reservoirs high.
