City water situation improving with higher lake levels

Mar 9, 2012

SULPHUR SPRINGS - Cooper Lake levels are now seven feet below normal, according to Sulphur Springs City Manager Marc Maxwell.

Maxwell made the presentation to the council earlier this week, but indicated the city’s diversion account is more than 96 percent full. Sulphur Springs receives its water from Cooper Lake, which has experienced abnormally low levels during this record drought.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reports the current elevation is 432 ½ feet.
