Full At Last! Full At Last!

Recent rains, with help from a pipeline that brings water from East Texas, have brought Eagle Mountain Lake from 10.5 feet low March 1 to conservation pool level at about 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 12.

See Page 3B for a comparsion on how quickly the lake rose in just a month. Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman
