State water officials to take 3rd Sierra snowpack measurement of season

The third snowpack measurement of the season will be taken Tuesday in the Sierra by state water officials.

California keeps track of how much snow is on the ground and how much water is in that snow and uses that information to decide who gets water from the state's dams and canals for the rest of the year.

Last month's snowpack survey showed that it's at 93% of normal levels.
