Updated look at local Lake levels

As we enter a stretch of dry weather for Central Texas, our lakes and rivers remain flooded. Some are beginning to crest while others are still rising. As of Sunday afternoon, here is the latest lake levels.

Lake Whitney:

  • 558.45 ft and rising
  • 4th highest level on record
  • Forecast crest to occur around June 16th
  • Flood gates remain closed

Lake Waco:

  • 484.14 ft and cresting
  • 3rd highest level on record
  • Parks and ramps closed, flooded

Belton Lake:

  • 613.62 ft and rising
  • 4th highest level on record

Stillhouse Hollow Lake:

  • 640.37 ft and cresting
  • 3rd highest level on record
  • Several parks closed, flooded

Until the flooding along the Brazos River in southeast Texas near Houston goes down, our lakes will hold back the water. So the only way they begin to drop is through evaporation from the heating of the sun. The Corp of Engineers will calculate when and how much they can release through the summer.

Numerous parks and boat ramps are closed due to flooding. There is a good chance they remain closed through July 4th weekend. Check ahead before venturing to your local park.
