The rain we've received over the past few days has no where near solved are water woes, but it has pushed back stage four in Wichita Falls for a little longer.

City officials say the lakes received about a .5" of rain, though they will have to wait a few more days for the run off water to get to the lakes to get a more accurate number for the lake levels.

And officials say that rain has delayed stage four restrictions.

“If we have a normal rain event, or a normal rain winter that would extend it on into March of next year,  and if it doesn't rain and we have warmer temperatures it could trigger as early as November,” said Daniel Nix, Wichita Falls City Operations Manager.

Right now the city reports Lake Arrowhead at 30.4% and Lake Kickapoo at 34.5% for a combined total of 31.5%.

Wichita falls remains in stage three drought restrictions.

Once the combined level hits 30% or below, stage four water restrictions will go into effect.
