PER THE HARBOR MASTER, AS OF 11:30 AM, MAY 29:

“Well phooey. Lake came up another foot last night. Crews are working hard at this moment to get the remaining equipment and boats up past the 537′ line. Here’s my updated analysis: The picture below shows the 536′ line and the water is nearly to it. I think it will come up another foot and either get close to the 1990 record of 536.65′ or set a new record. Lake Ray Roberts is at record depth and rising fast due to 3″ of rain up north (foot and a half since last night). It will soon be pouring over the emergency spillway up there (currently, the water has made it about 100 yards down the path up there) and dumping roughly 80,000 CFS into Lewisville Lake. Heavy rain is in the forecast and deemed probable. I think we’re looking at record flooding this year (hope I’m wrong). Also, we were unable to retrieve about 6 trailers from the bone yard, they are under water now, with two more trailers about to go a foot or so into the water.”

PER BILL FAHLE, MAY 28:

“As of now the Lewisville Lake level is at 534.39 feet msl.This exceeds the highest it got in 2007 at 534.02. The overall record was 1990, at 536.64. We are 2 feet and some inches below that record. Another big storm predicted for this evening, most likely a record rainfall for May.”

PER THE HARBOR MASTER, AS OF NOON, MAY 27:

“Power is cut off to all docks. Lake level is at 534+’. Also,Mark needs some help on dock 1 and the floating break water,which sustained some damage from the 50+ winds last evening. If you are available, give him a call to see what time he will be ready for your help.

Access to docks 1 & 2 is hazardous at best, so please be cautious when venturing to those areas. Power to the docks will remain off, until the water recedes below the 532′ line. Work will continue on Dock 1 this Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting.”
