Residents in Bartlesville are hoping to see a little more rain on the radar, especially in the Hulah Lake area.

Despite our recent rainfall, the city's main water supply only went up eight-tenths of an foot. That leaves the lake more than seven feet below normal. Resident, Joe Branstetter, "This rain will probably get the lake up some, but I don't know about other cicrumstances, just hope it comes up."

Meanwhile, residents in Bartlesville are still conserving water in an effort to keep the lake from going dry.
