Water supply conditions improving
With the rain we’ve experienced since January, we’ve seen a remarkable jump in total storage. The combined storage in all TRWD reservoirs is 76 percent. Most of the recovery has occurred in East Texas reservoirs - Cedar Creek is full. Richland-Chambers still has room for more runoff. However, the rain seems to have skipped over the West Fork reservoirs - Lake Bridgeport and Eagle Mountain. They’re still hurting and less than 45 percent full.
Conservation is really the key to extending our supplies through droughts like the one we’re in now. And most of the savings is due to keeping our outdoor watering in check. Be sure to check out the
Facebook page for weekly watering advice and tips on how to save water outdoors.

released by the Sierra Club and National Wildlife Federation, limits on outdoor water use are an effective way to slow the flow and conserve water.
