GRANITE BAY, CA - MARCH 20: Empty lifeguard stands sit idle on the dry lakebed of Folsom Lake on March 20, 2014 in Granite Bay, California. Now in its third straight year of drought conditions, California is experiencing its driest year on record, dating back 119 years, and reservoirs throughout the state have low water levels. Folsom Lake, a reservoir located northeast of Sacramento, has seen its capacity dwindle over the past 2-1/2 years of drought with current levels at around 20% of normal.
