Alarm Stage Drought approaching

Status: No Drought 
Barton Springs Discharge: 56 cfs daily average (57.9 10-day average)
Lovelady Well: 161.6 depth to water

Both Barton Springs and the Lovelady well are declining rapidly. Barton Springs is declining at a rate of about 0.5 cfs per day and could take us into Alarm Stage II drought conditions by the middle of October if we don't receive significant rainfall soon.

El Nino conditions are thought to be developing and we hope that those conditions will bring about more rainfall than normal and alleviate our dry conditions.
