USGS Spring Survey Results
US Geological Survey has compiled and released a spring survey report. USGS partnered with TGRGCD, Edwards Aquifer Authority and San Antonio River Authority to create a geodatabase of springs throughout Northern Bexar County.
Current Drought Stage: Stage 2
The Trinity Glen Rose Groundwater Conservation District has announced a continuation of Stage 2 Drought for the month of June and is anticipating continued drought conditions throughout the summer. According to the US Drought Monitor, Bexar County is currently experiencing moderate drought conditions. Although the area did receive some significant rainfall in the spring, the current year-to-date and projected rainfall totals for the remainder of the summer and fall are well below normal. With decreased precipitation the Trinity Glen Rose aquifer formation has had less recharge and monitor wells throughout the region are indicating lower water levels compared to seasonal averages.
The District encourages all water users to implement the following Stage 2 water conservation measures:
As the year progresses the District will continue to provide the citizens of Bexar County with updates on drought conditions, educational information, and more information on water conservation.
