Alarm Drought Continues

Drought Stage: Alarm Stage II Drought
Lovelady: 184.3 ft depth to water
Barton Springs: 28 cfs 10-day average

Despite the much-needed rainfall totals in the area of up to 2 inches, drought conditions persist and the rainfall only provided a very temporary relief from the hot and dry conditions. We could possibly enter into Critical Stage by August unless we receive significant rainfall, however July is normally one of our driest months, so the chance of seeing Critical levels of aquifer drought conditions is becoming more likely.
