Gatewood Reservoir nears full level

Last fall, Gatewood Reservoir was at its lowest level since the late 1990s. Now, it’s almost back to full pond.
As of Thursday, the reservoir was just 4.32 feet below the spillway, according to figures released by Town Manager John Hawley. A week earlier it was down 6.05 feet.
Gatewood is the town’s primary water source, with Hogan’s Reservoir serving as its backup in the event of severe drought.
Since early January, the reservoir has risen about 17 feet. It reached its lowest level in about a decade this past October, when it was nearly 25 feet below full pond (58 feet).
The declining water level prompted Pulaski Town Council to consider, late last year, imposing water use restrictions. Thanks to several steady bouts of rain and snow since the New Year, the restrictions were not implemented.
