Belton Lake is 13 Feet Above Full Pool Level
Belton Lake is currently over 13 feet above full pool level as of 10 a.m. this morning, according to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Full pool level is the water level of a reservoir at normal operating conditions.
That's a lot of water!
The recent rains have wreaked havoc on the state of Texas but Central Texas has been relatively unscathed compared to North Texas and the Houston area. However, we are still getting tons of rain and are affected by flooding as well. The lake rose a little over six inches overnight.
Looking at the chart, you can see how similar the water levels of Belton Lake are to that of last year. In 2014, the lake was significantly lower by about 22 feet.
Lake Belton's Facebook page posted a photo of the same spot on the lake - the only difference is 12 hours. Pretty crazy!
