Bardwell falls below benchmark

As drought conditions deepen and 100-degree days stretch on, Lake Bardwell fell below the city’s designated drought conservation stage this morning as the county enacted a ban on burning.
The lake stood at 416.98 feet above sea level, under the 417-foot threshold for activation of the city’s Stage 1 drought plan. That plan calls for voluntary water conservation at homes in the community through observing a twice weekly watering schedule.
