|Viewed from a distance, our lake looks fine, but viewed up close it looks low and it is low. As low as it has ever been - 6 inches below it's design level of 16.0 feet above sea level.|
The problem is there hasn't been a dry season this dry since rainfall tracking began in 1932. Only 11.75 inches of rain has fallen since October, about 8 inches below normal.
Fortunately, while the water we use to irrigate the property comes from the lake, we are able to replenish the water we use with reclaimed water.
Bottom line - The lake is a little low. But by using reclaimed water to irrigate our property, we are able to keep our lawns and foliage healthy in this driest of dry seasons.
Our Lake at 15.45 feet above sea level.
