Sallisaw officials may have been worried about the lake levels at Brushy Lake just two short months ago, but thanks to Mother Nature those worries have diminished with each day of rain and snow.

In late January the lake levels at Brushy lake were down more than 10 feet following a shortage of rainfall that has plagued the entire state. The level was a worry for officials who feared that without a good spring rain before summer the city would have faced critical issues by this summer. With significant rain and snow in January and February, the lake has now reached full capacity, but that doesn’t mean that officials aren’t still looking at long-term solutions to Sallisaw’s water issues.
