April Aquifer Update

Drought Status: Non-drought
Barton Springs: 97 cfs (97.5 10-day average)
Lovelady: 167.0 feet depth to water

The Barton Springs segment of the Edwards Aquifer is out of drought, and there is an overall improvement of drought conditions throughout Texas. However, the Hill Country of Texas is still under moderate drought conditions. Unfortunately, the outlook for rainfall is not necessarily favorable to improve. In addition, temperatures are projected to be above normal. While the summer of 2012 will not be nearly as severe as 2011 (let's hope), it appears likely 2012 will be a relatively dry and abnormally hot summer.
