STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The Oktibbeha County Emergency Management Agency is continuing to survey the water levels of the Oktibbeha County Lake and its dam.
Crews have been pumping out water for several weeks to try and maintain the lake, which has been putting pressure on the dam.
"Yesterday was not a good day because the lake had gone up several feet because of the rain over the last few days and has flooded parts of a campground,” Retired Fire Coordinator Kirk Rosenhan said.
With the amount of rainfall expected during the week, the county could see high water levels.
"It is expected to have two to three inches of rain over the next few days and rain in the forecast even next week, but in the meantime, we are pumping as much as we can,” Rosenhan said.
If the water levels are high enough, the county could issue a warning to residents in the coming days.
