O.H. Ivie rose 22,000 acre feet since the City of San Angelo declared Drought Level 1 conditions several months ago. That's a 33% increase.
The increase came from a series of runoff rains which can be seen below.
Our area is currently under a flash flood watch so there may be more runoff for Ivie and area lakes.
Update 6-1-16: Stephen Brown noted same in Standard Times today. Ivie holds nearly 95,000 acre feet with more runoff to come.
Update 6-2-16: Ivie is closing in on 100,000 acre feet. It's currently at 98,190.
Later on 6-2-16: It;s at 101,000 acre feet and the evening's young!
