Texas Reservoir Levels In Decline

Texas Reservoir Levels In Decline – The Trend Will Continue, by Andrew Owen

Kansas City, July 9 (World Weather Inc.) – Western and southern Texas water storage is in decline over that of last year and the region will continue to deal with hot, dry, weather for the next few weeks resulting in a further decline. Some areas in western and southern Texas have been experiencing a fall in soil moisture and water supply since last autumn. Dryland production has been cut for many areas, but irrigated agriculture has been experiencing ongoing favorable conditions. Water levels will continue to steadily decrease as rainfall remains limited and temperatures prevail above seasonal norms. Water restrictions are already in place across many areas and this trend will continue for the foreseeable future. Some of the water restrictions could become more significant as the summer advances. Cotton and other crop conditions are variable for West Texas and South Texas due to the dryness and low water levels. In the meantime, there is ample water storage in eastern Texas. READ ARTICLE
