Skiatook Lake sees high water levels after years of drought
Skiatook Lake sees high water levels after years of drought.
Two years ago, the landscape was different on Skiatook Lake.
See those bushes on the water?
Those are the tops of trees.
On the front edge, they were on the ground.
Now they’re sitting in about 25 foot of water," said Hank Spencer, General Manager of Cross Timbers Marina.
"We’ve started to get some excitement around here.
It’s kind of a joke that we’ve got plenty of water for the summer, so everyone is ready for the summer to get underway," said Spencer While rain is an unwelcome sight to many of us by now, business owners and managers all around the lake are thrilled to see it after years of drought.
"We definitely have seen an influx of traffic with people wanting to check out the water, check out The Springs.
Water levels are actually above normal now, a first for the lake in these past few years.
