LOS ANGELES — The Eastern Sierra snowpack that feeds the Los Angeles Aqueduct was measured this month at 171% of normal and is expected to meet 70% of the city’s annual water needs.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power said Friday the aqueduct will flow at or near full capacity for much of the next 12 months, providing about 119 billion gallons.

The department said about 114 billion gallons will be used in Mono Basin and in Inyo County to meet environmental commitments and operational needs.
