June Aquifer Update

Aquifer Status: Non-drought
Barton Springs flow: ~89 cfs (88 10-day average)
Lovelady Well: 136.5 ft depth to water

April and May rainfall were a bit below average and so both Barton Springs and the Lovelady well reached a peak and are now starting to level off their rise and even start to decline. This is their normal hydrologic response as we enter into hotter and drier conditions. Storage in the aquifer is high enough that we will likely avoid drought declarations this summer.
