Our Water: Concho Valley reservoirs see noteworthy gain


Municipal usage below average for this time of year

SAN ANGELO, Texas — San Angelo area reservoirs are primed for summer, gaining water reserves over the past few months. Most notably, Lake Brownwood gained about 17,000 acre feet over the last three months, while O.H. Ivie gained 15,000 acre feet and Twin Buttes gained 7,000 acre feet.

This puts the greater San Angelo community at a comfortable water supply as we head into a time of year where evaporation and usage increase.
