Dry Creek Bottoms Aplenty

Sand bars cover much of the almost dry Colorado riverbed below the river bridge into Wharton on Monday. Drought conditions statewide is causing the normally full river to wane away from its’ banks. Agricultural producers that use the interruptible water might be disallowed from purchasing water for yet another growing season.

Water from the Colorado River isn’t available for the second growing season in 2022 and it might not be available in 2023 either.

The Lower Colorado River Authority dispenses water for use in agriculture from North Texas lakes, Travis and Buchanan, however if the water level drops too low, that tap is closed off.
