There is no doubt that we all expected the lake to be refilled by now, but the weather has simply not cooperated. It is unlikely that we even received an inch of rainfall throughout all of June, and the water flow into the lakebed from upstream reflects this.
We have lakeside owners tracking the progress, and we are achieving up to six inches of water elevation increase daily. This is modest, but no water is flowing out of the lake and so progress remains steady.
We estimate that about 50% of the lakebed is under water now. If we don’t see some serious rainfall in the near future, however, achieving the final water elevation will still take several more weeks of patience. But we are getting there.
