Current Aquifer Conditions:

At the very top, is a chart displaying the current stage of drought based on values from Barton Springs and Lovelady monitor well, the District's two drought trigger sites. The values on this chart are periodically updated by District staff and reflect the values on the Current Drought Chart (link above). The two graphs at the bottom of the page show the last 60 days of record at the drought trigger sites in real-time. To visit the U.S. Geological Survey page where Barton Springs flow data is hosted click here. For water level values at Lovelady Monitor Well click here. Please note this data is provisional.
