Alarm Drought continues

Drought Status: Alarm

Average July rainfall helps, but does not alleviate drought conditions. Both Drought Triggers remain below their respective thresholds:
  • Barton Springs = 25 cfs (10-day avg)
  • Lovelady Well = 183.6 feet
Alarm Stage Drought requires a reduction of 20% of normal monthly water usage by permit holders. We further ask all who use groundwater to conserve water to help maintain water levels and springflow.
