Lake Alan Henry is nearly half empty.
The reservoir has lost almost half of its capacity in four years, dropping steadily since heavy summer rains flooded the lake in 2010.
As of Friday, Lubbock’s reservoir was roughly 56 percent full, according to Water Data for Texas, which tracks the state’s lakes and reservoirs. Across the Lone Star State, reservoirs are about two-thirds full. East Texas lakes have fared better than those in the region, much of which remains in a severe drought.
