Note: Mr. Ruiz says readings taken from EAA's main monitoring well, the J17, show a drop of about 19 feet from the beginning of April and dropping about a foot a day."There hasn't been any rain and what made things a little bit more difficult is the seasonal irrigation demand came in (from farmers)," Ruiz said. Rick Broun, the general manager of the Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District, says the district remains in "voluntary conservation" in western Hays County. Pumping restrictions are put in place for permitted users based on low flows in the Blanco and Pedernales Rivers. "I look at it (water flow readings) every day," Broun told the RoundUp. "It's headed that way (declining) but we're not close yet," Broun said.
