RESERVOIRS -- After a fairly rapid rise in early May, the level of Lake Roosevelt was 1238 at 8 a.m. today and  predicted to stay at fairly stable levels for a while.

"Inflows have decreased over the last week, but are expected to increase slightly in the coming week," the Bureau of Reclamation says. "At this time, the prediction is that the lake level will remain fairly stable over the weekend and rise slightly next week. At this time we anticipate a daily rise from 0-1/2 foot (6 inches). If the weather warms or there is increased precipitation, then there may be an increase in the daily rise of lake levels.

Daily lake level forecast by phone: (800) 824-4916.
