Runoff water from the floods increase water levels


Runoff conditions in the water sheds are proven to be a good thing to the San Angelo community.

The most notable conditions were recorded from yesterday and early this morning.

The Twin Buttes resevoir gained ten to twelve feet of water, which is making its way to twin buttes now.

The Concho River all the way to bell street flows three thousand cubic feet per second.

The Director of Operations for Upper Colorado River Authority, Chuck Brown, says, “now that we are getting towards the winter months, we are going to have less usage, less evaporation. You know it is somehow scary in the summer to see how much our water drops.” 

O.C. Fisher, Twin Buttes, and Lake Nasworthy’s water supply increased which in turn, recharges the river at or above normal flows, helping lakes and aquifers.
