Lake Mendocino, a crucial reservoir in the Sonoma County Water Agency’s water supply system, completely filled its water supply pool Friday morning for the first time in three years.

It is something the Water Agency didn’t expect even a month ago, before storms started in early January pelting the North Coast with much-need rainfall after three dry years.
