received a letter from TCEQ on January 11, 2012 concerning the drought projections for 2012. The following paragraph
is a quote from that letter:
"This past year was the driest 12-month period
in Texas history. Although recent rains and cooler temperatures have offered some temporary relief, groundwater and
surface water supplies have been drawn down and have not recovered. Meteorologists project this drought will continue
through the summer. These projections make it critical that water systems prepare for water shortages and possible outages.
Recently, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) monitored several water systems that were within 180 days of
completely running out of water. These systems had two things in common: they relied on a single source of their
water supply, and they had not made contingency plans for securing alternate sources of water."
CRSUD will remain in Drought Contingency until TCEQ releases us. We do thank you all for your help in this
conservation effort. We are so grateful for the recent rains.
