Recent rains have provided some relief from drought conditions, but aquifer levels are continuing to drop again. While the Barton Springs flow has remained above its threshold since mid-May, the Lovelady well fell below its threshold on July 13th. However, at its regular meeting on July 24th, the Board of Directors decided not to declare Stage II Alarm Drought to allow for more time to assess aquifer conditions. That means, without significant rainfall, that the Board will likely declare Stage II Alarm Drought at their regularly scheduled meeting on August 14th.

Groundwater users are encouraged to continue to conserve. Water conservation can prolong the time spent out of groundwater drought and protect water levels and springflow at Barton Springs.
