Drought Status Update

Drought Stage: Critical (yes, we're still in it, but perhaps not for long...)
Barton Springs: ~52 cfs (leveling off)
Lovelady Well: 194.7 ft and rising

The current rain is helping to generate some modest recharge. Barton Springs is currently about 52 cfs and appears to be leveling off.

The Lovelady well has been slowly rising about 0.1 ft/day from late September through October 9. Since October 9 the rate rise has increased to about 0.3 ft/day. At that rate it might be above its Critical threshold (192.1 ft) by Late October--perhaps sooner if we get more rain.

Stay tuned as we hopefully get more rain, and conditions improve.
