Lakes See Slight Benefit From May Rains

Photo by Mike Hendren

The latest lake level numbers are in and things are looking up, at least a little.  The latest numbers from the city of Wichita Falls indicate a modest increase in total lake levels.  The combined total (Lake Arrowhead, Lake Kickapoo) for June 3 is 37.8% of capacity.  This is up from 33.5% reported on May 6.   Wichita Falls recorded 1.63 inches of rain for May, 2.16 inches below normal.  What matters most, at least for lake levels, is where the rain falls.  Rain that falls in the city of Wichita Falls does not impact Arrowhead.  Runoff from inside the city ends up in the Big Wichita River, then ultimately in the Red River, then Lake Texhoma.  The map below shows the watershed vicinity map for the Little Wichita River which feeds Arrowhead.  This is the critical area when it comes to rainfall beneficial to our lake levels.  The U.S. Drought Monitor map shows exceptional drought conditions engulfing the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles, with extreme to exceptional conditions covering Texhoma.  Should the drought persist, Stage 4 drought restrictions most likely would come into effect in August.
