The seasonal decline of the water table marches on.
|This chart shows where the Cowbell Fire ranks|
seasonally and in terms of water depth
relative to past major wildfires

The preserve-wide water table has dropped about a half foot.
The good news about that rain was it fell right on the fire, not enough to put it completely out, but it did raise the water table about 4 inches. Don't expect it to last.
A deep drydown season is still upon us.
And compared to past deep drydowns this one is still quite young.
