Aquifer District Returns to Stage II Alarm Drought August 15, 2014
Lovelady monitor well, one of the Districtís two drought-trigger
sites, crossed below its Stage II Alarm Drought water level of 478.4 feet above mean sea level in
mid-July. 10-day average discharge at Barton Springs, the District's other drought trigger site, is
at its Drought threshold of 38 cubic feet per second. Only one of the two drought stage triggers
needs to be reached for a drought declaration to be made.
