Looks like the highs for the lake were in 1983 at 1225 feet and lows in 2010 at 1081 feet.  Difference of 144 feet. The drop in feet doesn't tell the entire story. Lakes aren't square tanks or equal depth from all edges.

Perspective.

1983 water acre feet 26,864,000
2010 water acre feet 9,932,000

1983 gallons 8,752,000,000,000
2010 gallons 3,236,000,000,000

That's a 63% drop in total available gallons in just 27 years.  

We only do government crisis by crisis.  Because we have no real leadership, just leadership theater.  Water crisis is around the corner.

Then you read about how Nestle and other companies have bought all kinds of land next to the great lakes and through techniques that siphon water from the lakes bottle it and send it around the world.  Does Nestle pay anything to fund the water infrastructure?  Nope not a dime that's all on us.

As I understand it, they expect it to drop 20' this year.

Not a word about demand and the lack of development for decades. From $0.25 possibly $6 per thousand gallons or 2400% potential increase. Get ready the price of inaction is now looking to be recouped in the short term.

We cut off 25% of Lake Lavons supply from Lake Texoma due to the spread of Zebra Mussels.

They made it to Lavon anyway.

A pipeline running from Texoma going directly to the water treatment plant will be online later this year, replacing that 25%. That should slow down the drawdown on Lavon, short term. At 12ft low, it is at only 47% capacity, coming into the hardest, driest part of the year.

Pretty soon, the EPA Nazi's will designate Zebra Mussels as an endangered species, and we won't have any water at all.
