We can be for sure that the landowners around Eagle Mountain Lake are enjoying a full lake thanks to the Tarrant County Water District. I also always enjoy seeing these people who are too lazy to turn the sprinklers off when it does rain. That's our drinking water and they are too ignorant to realize it. When a shortage comes, they will realize money doesn't buy everything!!!
Well, take it from someone that lives two blocks from Eagle Mountain lake. It isn't full either.
To se the record staight (straight from the TRWD website)Bridgeport Lake:conservation level: 836.00current level: 829.63Total below concervation: 6.38 feetEagle Mountain:conservation level: 649.10current level: 644.88Total below conservation: 4.22 feetFor those who are having a brain freeze, that equates to a difference of 2.16 feet. These are the totals from 9-7-2005, taken sometime in the afternoon. Dosen't sound like alot to *itch about. We are lucky we have the water left we do considering the lack of rain this summer.
I can just remember 2004 when the same situation was rising - Bport low by 14', EM & Lake Worth both full from Bport's water. Then the rains came in June. Made me thankful that we didn't have Bport full - it was able to handle all the rain whereas lots of flooding in EM and LW.
