DENISON, Tex. — Water from Lake Texoma is no longer spilling over the Denison Dam spillway.

The Army Corps of Engineers recorded a water level of 640 feet, the exact threshold for the spillway, during their 2 p.m. reading Wednesday afternoon, according to their website.

Water first crested over in late May.

The last time the spillway crested over was in 2007, and it has only happened four times since the completion of the dam in 1943.


Lake Texoma topped out at a record setting 645.71 feet on June 1st and has been dropping ever since, according to KTEN.
