Rain Raises Lake Levels

Recent rains have helped raise levels at Lakes Arrowhead and Kickapoo.

Since Monday, Lake Arrowhead has risen three inches and Lake Kickapoo levels are up one inch, according to Utilities Operations Manager for Public Works Daniel Nix.

Nix said the amount of rain seen across Texoma so far is not enough to reduce drought restrictions.

"To get out of Stage 2, it's going to take several days worth of rain," said Nix. "To get out of the drought period, it's going to take probably a week or two worth of rain."

Nix still believes Wichita Falls will go into Stage 3 restrictions in September, but thinks the recent rains may delay that action by about a week.
