City Releases New Tool to Track Lake Water Level
The City of Winfield is pleased to provide citizens with a new way to track the water level at the Winfield City Lake. That tool can be found by clicking here.
The water level is tracked as "below full pool." Data is typically added weekly, but may be added more often. With the extended drought conditions in Cowley County and Upper Timber Creek Watershed Area, the Winfield City Lake is at its lowest level since 1992.
Keep in mind, there is still a significant supply of water for the city residents/businesses. Below is a lake level history.

The City of Winfield addresses its short-term water shortage problems through a series of stages based on conditions of supply and demand with accompanying triggers, goals and actions. Each stage is more stringent in water use than the previous stage since water supply conditions are more deteriorated. The City Manager is authorized by ordinance to implement the appropriate conservation measures.
