Local Lakes Rise from Rains

Twin Buttes Reservoir is up a half foot since yesterday.  Normally by now the Equalization Channel is dry.  It's running like April.

O.C. Fischer is up nearly the same amount (.4 feet) and Lake Nasworthy rose .43 feet.  Here's the volume of water each body of water added:

Twin Buttes North Pool - 750 acre feet
O.C. Fischer - 550 acre feet
Lake Nasworthy - 525 acre feet 
That increases our local water supply by at least a month.  Each rise is a blessing.

Update 6-29-16:  Lake Ivie rose 1,200 acre feet.
