Water supply continues to dwindle

Over the weekend, Austin’s water supply dropped another 5,000 acre-feet.  All of the supply provided by July rainfall has been used up or has evaporated, and our effective remaining supply is 680,000 acre-feet.  Evaporation rates are above average, inflows are at historic lows, and rain predictions are noncommittal (with good reason).  Without significant rainfall above Mansfield Dam, months until we have no water:  15.
