Lake Brownwood on Tuesday was 1,410 feet above mean sea level.
The Brown County Water Improvement District this week was prepared to consider tighter water-use restrictions, but general manager Dennis Spinks says the action has been postponed.
Spinks says weekend rain, about 5 inches, raised Lake Brownwood by more than a foot and increased the area's water supply by several months.
Spinks on Monday told the Brownwood Bulletin that it "is a dent in the drought, but it is not a drought-breaker."
The Lower Colorado River Authority says the Lake Travis level rose by about a foot after the Austin area received more than 2 inches of rain last weekend.
