Lake Lewisville, along with all other lakes in the Trinity River basin except Lake Grapevine, recently exceeded the historical record of water levels when it passed 537, said City Manager Michael Leavitt. The Army Corps of Engineers said the lake has since dropped by 1 foot, 4 inches, he said.
Water quality is one of the main reasons Lake Lewisville is closed.
Most of the city’s sewer infrastructure is now under water. However, most of the caps are sealed, Leavitt said. He urged residents to clean out caps that might be on their property.
“That needs to be sealed at all times,” he said of the caps.
If residents happen to see bubbles or a vortex in the water in the yard, they should alert the city to come out and seal off the cap.
