Has anyone seen Lake Texoma Lower than its present level? 609.18 normal level to me is 617-619 above sea level.

Elevation 608.9 this is lowest since the mid 70z, and still goin down. Called Corps and they can take it down to 590 ft. 70% of lake in Oklahoma yet Texas gets 100% electricity generated.

Good thing is it has a huge watershed. The low level is also leaving the zebras high and dry and when it does refill it will take a while for them to come back. That said, all our lakes are hurting in North TX. I live 2 miles from Lavon where Texoma water will again be pumped and it is 12 1/2' low at present. Considering it's a very shallow lake, that is the bulk of it's storage capacity.

I'm a frequent visitor of Murray, about 20 minutes north of Texoma - it too is at record lows.  The locals say they've never seen it this low (between 8-12 feet the past 2 years).  It's a deep clear lake with very little watershed.  The running joke is that it will take 8 feet of rain to fill it up. :/
