Drought News from Brazos River Authority

18 February 2015 at 9:36:18 AM


Such is the situation many in the Lone Star State face in 2015. Much of Texas has seen a good share of rain (or in some cases ice and snow) this winter, and climatic conditions appear to favor more rain as the season continues. Even so, it may take a long time before the Brazos River basin’s reservoirs refill.

In mid-February, how you fared in the drought once again depended on where you live. The lower basin, from south of Waco to the Gulf Coast was no longer listed in drought, or at worst was abnormally dry, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. The westernmost counties of the upper basin were under similar conditions. However, to the east, some upper-basin counties continued to suffer under the two most severe drought categories: extreme and exceptional. Overall, more than 56 percent of the state was classified as under drought.

Unfortunately, some of the Brazos River Authority’s system reservoirs lie in areas of exceptional or extreme drought conditions. As of February 11, Possum Kingdom Lake was down 13.6 feet, about 64 percent of its storage capacity, and Lake Granbury was down 9.8 feet, close to 55 percent capacity. Both reservoirs lie within an area listed as experiencing exceptional drought. Meanwhile, located on the fringe of the extreme drought area, Lake Proctor was down to a mere 28 percent of capacity and had moved into Stage 4 Pro Rata Curtailment drought designation, under the BRA’s Drought Contingency Plan. This stage calls for water customers drawing from Lake Proctor to reduce their usage by 30 percent.
