DECATUR -- It was good to see some much-needed rain last week, but it will do little to help the city. In Monday's Drought Watch, the water level at Lake Decatur is the same as last week.

City leaders are looking at options to find more water. The first would allow the city to install a temporary pipeline underneath the dam.

The second would let ADM drill temporary wells on its property. Both ideas will be discussed at Monday's city council meeting.
