Barton Springs and Lovelady Well Level Check – Oct. 20, 2021

Barton Springs and the Loveday Well are the district’s two drought triggers. Thanks to our recent rain event, both saw a bump in levels. Still, conservation is key. Without additional rain for a prolonged amount of time we could return to Stage II Drought Restrictions. La Niña conditions have developed in the Pacific and are expected to continue with an 87% chance of La Niña in Dec 2021- Feb 2022. This typically leads to conditions thru winter that are, on average, warmer & drier than normal here in south-central Texas.
Oct. 20, 2021 – Barton Springs remains above the Stage II Alarm Drought Threshold of 38 cfs (cubic feet per second). It is currently at 77.6 cfs.
