Reservoirs recover following wet spring

  What took three years to deplete, recovered in a matter of weeks thanks to second wettest spring on record. 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.  With the abundant rains, lawns are getting all the water they need. The best way to save water is to keep your irrigation system off until it's needed. Be sure to check out the Lawn Whisperer's Facebook page for weekly watering advice and tips on how to save water outdoors.
