Recent rains continue to pay dividends

COOPER - There are more positive signs for area lakes, with officials reporting that Cooper Lake is now about one and a half feet below normal elevation.

That means lake use could see a boost. But it’s also good news for cities like Sulphur Springs, who receive their water from Cooper Lake. Recent rains are credited with the higher levels, after the region received approximately four inches last week.

Lake Tawakoni has also showed higher levels in the past several days, now less than a half foot below its normal stage.
