We’re coming off a waterlogged May in parts of Texas, and early June is forecast to be pretty soggy, as well. Likewise, rising water and above-normal lake levels are hot topics across much of the state these days.

While some watersheds have missed out on the moisture, others have been hit hard with near record amounts of rainfall over the last 30-45 days. With more water coming in than controlling authorities can safely release, water levels on some reservoirs are excessive.
