Hydrologic Conditions: Texas, September 2015

San Antonio Pool: The J-17 Well elevation continued to fall. Heavy rain and flooding this spring provided a two-month respite from all pumping restrictions. But Stage 1 restrictions were imposed at the end of June. In mid-August, EAA announced a return to Stage 2 restrictions, which require all permit holders in the pool to reduce their annual authorized pumping by 30%. Will the elevation follow the historical trend and improve during the fall?

Uvalde Pool: After its dramatic ascent from Stage 5 restrictions to no restrictions this spring, the elevation of the J-27 Well continues to increase, but at a more level pace. Prior EAA lifting all pumping restrictions in early August, the Uvalde Pool had been under some level of restriction since March 2013. With the historical trend suggesting a slight increase in elevation over the fall and winter months, will the J-27 Well elevation continue to improve?
