Where can I find more information about the Texas drought?
The most current information on the severity of the drought can be found through the TWDB's Drought Information Summary
Who tracks reservoir levels in Texas?
The TWDB does. Drought results in decreased water levels in reservoirs throughout the state. View the current water levels for individual reservoirs.
Is my surface water right in jeopardy of being pulled?
The TWDB is not the agency responsible for surface water permitting. The use of surface water in Texas is regulated through a system of water rights managed by The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Find information on water rights.
What is happening to aquifer levels?
The TWDB maintains recorders in wells throughout the state equipped with satellite telemetry. Automatic recorders transmit near-real-time water level data.
How many water supply corporations or entities are under water restrictions?
The TWDB does not mandate water restrictions. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality tracks water restrictions throughout the state.
What can citizens do to help during the drought?
During times of mandated reductions in water use, many areas turn to water conservation. Information on conservation can be found on the TWDB's Conservation Division.
