Stage III Critical Drought imminent

Barton Springs discharge and the depth to water in the Lovelady monitor well are likely to cross their respective thresholds in the next week. It is possible the Board would make a Stage III Critical Drought declaration at its next meeting on Thursday 9/8/11. Stage III drought will require that permitees reduce monthly pumping by about 30% of their normal monthly pumping.
