Reservoirs recover following record rainfall
What took three years to deplete, recovered in a matter of weeks thanks to the nearly 20 inches of rain that has fallen in North Texas over the last two months. All of the water district’s reservoirs – Eagle Mountain Lake, Lake Bridgeport, and Cedar Creek and Richland-Chambers reservoirs – are now full. It’s a 40 percent jump in water supply storage from where we were sitting at the beginning of the year.
This is the fourth wettest start to the year on record. And with all this rain, the best way to save water is to keep your irrigation system off and run it manually, when needed. Be sure to check out the
Facebook page for weekly watering advice and tips on how to save water outdoors.
