Deepen our lakes to store more water

Re "Low Storage brings water ration orders" (Page A1, Dec. 29): The front-page aerial photo of Folsom Lake with the exposed shallow depths of its dry beds tells the whole story. A wise man once said to me, “Why build a new dam when you can expand the capacity of each lake by digging them deeper and wider during the dry periods?” It's a simple solution.
