The city of San Marcos returns to Stage 1 drought restrictions at noon today, some seven hours before a flash flood watch is scheduled to expire.
The move is the result of “generous spring rainfall,” and comes five days after the Edwards Aquifer Authority reduced its restriction to Stage 1 levels.
“We hope the current wet weather pattern will stick around for a while, but we are also heading into a long hot summer so it’s essential that residents continue to conserve water,” said Tom Taggart, executive director of public services.
State Representative Jason Isaac (R-Dripping Springs) and State Senator Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels) passed HB 3405 Friday night in the Senate. HB 3405 will expand the boundaries of the Barton Springs-Edwards Aquifer Conservation District (BSEACD) to cover a portion of the Trinity Aquifer in Hays County that is not currently within a groundwater district.
Since the passage of HB 3405 in the House on May 8, Rep. Isaac and Sen. Campbell have diligently worked to fight off amendments and unnecessary language in the Senate.
