BROWNWOOD, Texas -

This week's rain means good news for Brown County's Lake Brownwood.

The lake received so much water both Monday and Tuesday that it might not be necessary to declare Stage 4 water restrictions in August.

The Lake Brownwood watershed reportedly received eight to 10 inches of rain. As of Tuesday afternoon, the lake is up about 19 inches. Three to four feet of water could continue to runoff into the lake.

County leaders encourage everyone to adhere to the currently imposed Stage 3 water restrictions.
