Alarm Drought Continues

Drought Status: Alarm

Both Drought Triggers remain below their respective thresholds:
  • Barton Springs = 23 cfs (10-day avg)
  • Lovelady Well = 185.4 feet
Without rainfall and recharge it is estimated that we may enter into Critical Stage drought as early as September.

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.
