In this Sunday Aug. 7, 2011 photo, a view of the spillway and Lake E.V. Spence beyond the structure is seen in Robert Lee, Texas. The small body of water that remains in the lake lies roughly 120 feet away from the base of the spillway according to city waste and water department superintendent Eddie Ray Roberts. Roberts said that the city is pumping 1.3 million gallons of water from Spence into the nearby Mt. Creek Reservoir daily. With water restrictions in place, the city is allotted only 200,000 gallons a day from the reservoir to the city's population of 1049. (AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez) less
