FRITCH --      Plenty of rainfall means a rise at Lake Meredith.
    The lake reached a little more than 42-feet.
    That's far from the record high set back in 1973, it was at more than 100 feet.
    The Canadian River Municipal Water Authority's board of directors has voted to start pumping from the lake.
    There is also a petition making the rounds to delay the pumping until the lake reaches 60 feet.
