June Aquifer Update

Drought Status: Non-drought

Lovelady: 136.5 ft depth to water

Barton Springs: 85 cfs

Lovelady is currently at 136.5 ft as of today and has reached its "plateau." The rains a couple week ago have probably helped it maintain this level, which is the same depth as the last blog entry on 6/9. Nearly all other Edwards monitor wells are showing a declining trend for the past few weeks. I would expect the Lovelady well to start declining (relatively) rapidly over the next month. Conversely, the Trinity levels in our area are still rising, but at a slower pace. Water levels in those wells will soon plateau and start their decent.

Barton Springs is currently at 85 cfs, down from 90 at the blog entry. It will start a rapid decline in the coming months without more rains.
