Water levels at Saylorville Lake are on the rise. According to the Army Corps of Engineers the reservoir is currently at 841 feet and they expect it to continue to rise an additional five feet by Wednesday.

Based on current forecasts, the water levels should crest and then plateau next week at just over 870 feet.

Back in December the Lake broke a 24-year record low when the water was down to 832 feet. It wasn’t until April that the water levels were considered back to normal.
