EAA now out of water restrictions
The Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA) staff confirmed that on Saturday, Sept. 15, the daily high, water level at the Bexar County Index Well (J-17) was 667.1 ft mean sea level (msl) and the 10-day average was 660.5 ft msl. Stage 1 conditions are no longer present in the San Antonio Pool.
Furthermore, as of Sept. 15, discharge at Comal and San Marcos springs have been impacted by surface water runoff and are currently estimated values by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Comal Springs discharge was estimated by the USGS at 284 cubic feet per second (cfs) and the 10-day average was estimated at 238 cfs. San Marcos Springs discharge was estimated to be 160 cfs and the 10-day average was 150 cfs.
As a result, the actual day the San Antonio Pool exited Stage 1 may be adjusted.
