SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Most of Utah's reservoirs are in good shape after plenty of rain and snow last month.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation says only three of the largest reservoirs in the state are less than 80 percent full. That's more full than reservoirs typically are this time of year.

However, the reservoirs likely will fall to their usual year-end levels.

Willard Bay, Deer Creek and Scofield reservoirs are down to 40, 60 and 66 percent full, respectively. All three are undergoing dam-safety renovations.
