Our Water: Concho Valley has unique relationship with water


In addition to all of the water control and containment infrastructure, there are a lot of natural factors that make the Concho Valleys relationship with water unique. The effects of San Angelos position in the literal Concho Valley is what tends to cause rain systems to skirt around us. This in turn negatively impacts our surface water. Even with all of the rain fall during the last quarter of 2018, Concho Valley residents know from experience why conservation is still of paramount importance. It is because of that fact that San Angelo has taken initiative to diversify the sources of water used by the city. From the Hickory Aquifer to the Concho River Reclamation Project, and even to the possible future rehabilitation of the Spence Pipeline.
