Water levels at Cheney Reservoir are almost back to where they were a year ago thanks to heavy rains this week, Wichita officials said.

Cheney’s lake levels are up 3 percent since July 19, to 74.30 percent, just 0.32 of a percent less than it was on July 30, 2012, said Ben Nelson, the city’s public works strategy manager.

“So it’s made some notable gains during the recent rainfall,” Nelson said.

City officials expect those gains to continue, especially in the wake of torrential rainfall just north of Wichita on Monday night.
