Tuttle Creek Recovering After Record Low Level

KSAL StaffMay 6, 2013
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says recent precipitation brought Tuttle Creek Lake back to its normal elevation.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says recent precipitation brought Tuttle Creek Lake back to its normal elevation.

Brian McNulty, the corps’ operation manager, says the lake was at its normal elevation of 1075 feet by the end of the day Friday. That’s more than 10 feet above the lake’s level last fall.

Last summer, water levels dropped because of lack of moisture. By July, the lake got so low that many marinas became unusable and boating hazards such as trees and stumps were exposed.

McNulty says now lake users just need the temperatures to warm up. The water is still too cool for good crappie fishing and it’s been too cool for many people to camp at the lake.
