Lake Waiau water levels almost back to normal

By 67AM KPUA News

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) State officials say a lake on Mauna Kea is almost back to normal water levels after a wet winter. The Department of Land and Natural Resources has been monitoring water levels at Lake Waiau since last fall, when scientists, visitors and others noted the lake looked more dry than usual.

Ian Cole, a natural area reserve system specialist for the state, says winter rains helped bring the lake's water level back to about 75 percent full. Cole says some people were worried the lake wouldn't be able to recover from four years of low precipitation.
National Weather Service officials say it rained enough on the Big Island during the winter to pull the island out of drought.
