That's up to the Rain. But yes, they have announced that they are complete with the repairs and will no longer be holding it lower than normal pool.

I've followed it refilling from draw downs and drought and it can be painfully slow at refilling. The upper basin(s) for the lake apparently aren't as big as most lakes. It may take a year or better for it to get back to pool stage.

Could be a win win if some of the shallow grass comes back

It pumps water to, but that's not how they drew it down. Even IF the pumps could go in reverse, which they likely don't, it wouldn't fill it up anytime soon!
