Folsom Dam is seen from the shoreline at Beal's Point on Wednesday in Folsom. A half-million Sacramento water users nearly lost their main water source last year when Folsom Lake dropped close to the “dead pool” level, which is below the dam’s water intakes. That alarmed water officials. Now, water managers say they have a plan to reduce the chance that Folsom Lake water will become inaccessible in future droughts.
