The District is currently in a No-Drought Condition
March 22, 2012
On March 22nd the Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer declared a No-Drought condition for the aquifers within the district, effective immediately. In a No-Drought status, groundwater users are encouraged to maintain conversation practices.
Water use peaks from May through September because of a sharp increase in outdoor irrigation. Even in No-Drought status during these months, end users are asked to comply with a voluntary 10% reduction in water use to help extend water resources through the summer. Conserving water can prolong the time spent in no-drought conditions, preserve water levels, and keep springflow at Barton Springs above the drought thresholds.
