We have passed some great markers this week. We blew past the 2 million acre foot mark and the 100' mark and overcame the year-to-date lake level from last year (13.55' feet higher than last year)!!! Also, the rainfall has surpassed 2015 to date. It won't be too long before we pass the 50% capacity mark.
In comparison to how far the lake has progressed from it's low point on December 8th (52 days) here are some interesting figures. We have increased capacity by 23%. The lake has risen close to 60' in elevation. We have gained 926,886 acre feet of water. The shoreline has increased by 78 miles
