In a timelapse of pictures taken since 2017, by a Cachuma Lake webcam, the reservoir fills to the current level. With rainfall approaching 150 percent of normal for this time of year, two of Santa Barbara County’s reservoirs are full and storage in two continues to rise, with one now well above 50 percent but the other — the county’s largest — far behind at less than 20 percent, according to Flood Control District numbers. As of Thursday morning, Gibraltar Reservoir was at 101 percent of its 4,314 acre-foot capacity, holding 4,359 acre-feet, and spilling water into the Santa Ynez River that feeds into Cachuma Lake, which was holding 68.4 percent of its 193,305 acre-foot capacity at 132,165 acre-feet.
