August Aquifer Update

Drought Status: No Drought
Barton Springs: 74.8 cfs (10-day average)
Lovelady: 153.9 ft

Streamflows in Onion Creek are approaching zero and water levels and Barton Springs are declining as recharge diminishes.  El Nino conditions are likely to develop during August or September according to the NOAA. Hopefully that will bring wetter-than-normal conditions to central Texas.
