Citizens Energy Group said Thursday that Morse, Geist and Eagle Creek reservoirs have been completely recharged by months of rainfall.

The Indianapolis Star reports that if the Indianapolis-area reservoirs had not refilled following the drought, it could have led to serious problems next year for Indiana residents.

Water levels dropped more than 6 feet at Morse Reservoir over the summer, more than 3 feet at Eagle Creek and more than 2 feet at Geist. That prompted Indianapolis to issue a watering ban in July that wasn't lifted until September.

Citizens Energy estimates the ban saved about 3 billion gallons of water.
