Rainfall that has come to the area since September has improved the water level of the city’s main source, but Lake Bardwell still remains far below its target elevation. Resting at 416.68 feet Thursday afternoon, the manmade, Corps of Engineers-managed reservoir was about 4.3 feet below the 421-foot level used as a normal resting elevation.
City Manager Steve Howerton urged residents to continue water-conservation techniques to avoid overdrawing the lake.
