In the past 120 days, the water level on Cross Lake in Shreveport Louisiana has increased by 4 feet. The gauge used is the water level elevation above sea level. The current water level is at 171.34 ft. The official spillway crest elevation is 171.2 ft. The water level was as low as low as the higher end of 166 ft back in October . Hopefully the city will let the water level come up by another few feet before letting any water out to the spillway.
The outlook for rain for 2012 is not looking that great, but for now we have plenty of water in the lake.
