Burney Falls is GUSHING, Pumping Out 225 Million Gallons of Water Per Day

With Northern California’s historic precipitation in February, it was only a matter of time before the water made its way to our beautiful waterfalls. With the water flowing heavily, the waterfall that has seen a noticeable increase in water flows is Burney Falls, which is currently pumping out an enormous amount of water over its 129-foot drop.

Recent USGS statistics show the waterfall is hovering around 300 cubic feet per second (cfs), with it peaking at 350 cfs on February 28th. At 300 cfs, the waterfall pumps out 192 million gallons of water per day. At 350 cfs, it pushes out 226 million gallons of water per day.

That’s a lot of water!

Now we can sit here and quote water flow statistics all day, but maybe it’s just best if we show you what the Eighth Wonder of the World looks like at peak flood stage:
