Countown to 500

The Lake is little over a month away from making it to 500 days below the 11 ft mark.

What’s the significance of 11 ft?

That’s the level below which most of the wetlands inside the interior walls of the levee go dry.

Below 10 ft, even the deeper potholes go dry.

The Lake has dropped about a foot since the middle of April: it’s currently around 9.25 ft.

If that graph isn’t enough, you can also view a historical calendar of Lake stage, color coded relative to its position in the littoral zone, from the 1930s to present.
