For PG&E’s Hydro Power, Every Drop Counts

Every drop counts as California faces a critical water shortage. The work of PG&E hydrographers is vital as they travel to designated courses in the high Sierra Nevada and Southern Cascades to measure precious water supply in snowpack to prepare for hot summer months ahead. We have a scale and it’s calibrated in inches. You […]
