Lake Waco Level Update

We hope you got some of that rain, Waco!

Drought conditions are still with us regionally, as the rain only impacted the lake about 1/10th of a foot. (We're still grateful, as some areas of Waco saw almost an inch of rainfall!)

Some things to keep in mind:
• Recent rains increased the lake from 450.87 feet to 450.95. Follow the level here.
• Being down 15" might seem small, but over the entire surface area of the lake (about 7,700 acres) is a large amount of water!
• We still need over 15" of rain to end this drought. Learn more.
• Lake Waco is a regional water source serving many Central Texas cities.

Water restrictions are necessary in times like this to preserve our most valuable asset for the future.

We appreciate you, Waco!
