The combined Wichita Falls lake levels have now hit the lowest point ever since the drought of the 1950s.

Lake Arrowhead -- which was built because of that drought -- is at 20.5%. Lake Kickapoo is at 29.5%, with the combined total sitting at 23%.

Lake Kickapoo was at the lowest level it has ever been at in June but bounced back with the rainfall we received in July. The city remains in stage 5 drought catastrophe. Car washes will have to shut down if lake levels hit a combined 20 percent.
