Lake levels steadily dropping


DECATUR -- The dry end to summer has Lake Decatur water levels steadily dropping.


Right now, the lake is sitting at 613 feet above sea level. That's slightly lower than normal for this time of year.


If the dry pattern continues through October 1st, City Manager Ryan McCrady said the city may look into voluntary water conservation measures.


"We would then watch it through October and determine if the lake got to a certain level, if we would need to do water restrictions again," McCrady said.


Thanks to the wet spring and early summer, McCrady said Decatur's ground water sources have fully recovered. Other supplemental water sources will be up and running next month.
