San Marcos River Flow Well Below Average – Conserve Water!
The San Marcos River Foundation reported last week that the San Marcos River is down to 130 cfs on Sunday, 45 cfs below median average. Watering with drip irrigation or soaker hoses or hand watering is still allowed as needed, but watering with sprinklers is only allowed once a week. You can report violations to the city’s water conservation officer, Jan Klein by calling 393-8310, and let her be the one to give those not in compliance a explanatory lesson on water conservation rules. Repeated violations can bring fines. Read about watering rules at http://sanmarcostx.gov/news/Docs/11April19_Stage_1.pdf. All those within city limits are subject to these rules, whatever their water supply.
