January 2012 Aquifer Update

Drought Stage: Critical Stage III
Barton Springs Flow: 22.2 10-day average
Lovelady: 193.3 ft

Despite the above-average rainfall in November and December for central Texas, we remain firmly in Critical Drought conditions. The rains provided some recharge to the aquifer, but the rise and benefit will only be temporary unless substantial rainfall occurs over the next 6 months. Unfortunately La Nina conditions exist, which generally mean drier-than-normal conditions.
