More rain means more good news for Lake Brownwood. 

Lake Brownwood is a major recreational lake and water supply for Brown County.  It has been suffering the worst droughts in its history.

Six to ten inches of rain over its watershed since Sunday has lead to a significant rise in water level for the lake.

As of Wednesday at 7 p.m., Lake Brownwood is up over four feet since Sunday.  This is the highest the lake has been in two and a half years.
